6 Great New Apps

By Bob on July 18, 2013 4:27 AM

Looking for the next great app? Here are 6 you should really check out.


1. Uber
The taxi cab alternative (ride in style, and book trips via smartphone) works great. Open the app and reserve your car and it'll arrive in 5-10 minutes (most cities).
Cost: FREE

2. Height Finder
Use this app to figure out what your height is above sea level - whether you're standing on top of Charlotte Mountain in Cranfills Gap, Texas or on the streets of New York.
Cost: FREE


3. Trapster
Got a heavy foot? Use this app to avoid speed traps.
Cost: Free


4. Pictwo
This app (Apple iOS only) lets you merge two pictures into one. You get a lot of the features of Photoshop for less than a buck.
Cost: $.99

5. SoundHound (Apple and Android).
You can even hum a song and this app will tell you what it is.
Cost: FREE

Meal Snap-580.jpg

6. Meal Snap
Dr. Oz even likes this app (Apple and Android). Just take a photo of your food and let it calculate the calorie count of each item. Kinda pricey, but worth the weight (apologies for the pun).
Cost: $2.99
