Here you will find apps that don’t really fit in but they are somewhat fun and silly and we all need a silly app now and then.
Trick your friends and colleagues with this measure apparatus. You simply write whatever you want to measure then you manipulate the outcome with a slight touch anywhere on the screen and the gauge will slowly move in that direction. This is easily done without anyone noticing your input. Also plus for cool graphics.
Super stupid and a little fun. A while ago PocketHeat was just that, a pocket heater. You wonder how? Well if got an app that throw a lot of random calculations at the cpu to a degree that it’s maxed out combine that with full load on the accelerometer and voila you got a warm iPhone for your frozen fingers in your pocket. Oh happy joy – not really. See this is not good for your phone. Running warm and soaking the battery at record speed is not how Apple want you to treat your phone. The story should end here but not so. You can now for 99 cent buy a PocketHeater that simulates a heater with a nice picture and all without any warmth. It’s endlessly stupid and we actually don’t like this app at all…
How long can I hold a finger on the display you might wonder? Yes now you can find out by using the awesome app “Hold on”. That’s what it do, nothing else just that. You put your finger on the screen and it starts counting. Yep that’s it. There is of course a scoreboard for you to send your score to when you feel you have been holding your finger on your smartphone just long enough.
Want to get some of that sweet superior Predator feel? So it’s alien technology with Thermal Vision for my iPhone? This is all nonsense you may think and it is. Pure bogus app. But it gives you some kind of nice thermal-ish filtered picture to look at. And it is a bit Predator, hence cool.
The fact is that fiddling with your phone is not the first thing you want to do when the alarm goes of in the early morning. It is an easy accident to turn the alarm of instead of snooze it. Do not worry replace your old alarm clock with Wave Alarm and you don’t have to worry about any such accidents again. Wave Alarm uses motion control . You will never have to touch your phone again. Just wave your hand in front of it and it goes into snooze. Easy as pie. This is actually the first app alarm to utilize this technology. And a nice looking design as well.
One more perk – It’s free. Android is be the supported OS for this application. Naturally a smartphone equipped with front camera is also required
Optical character recognition is progressing fast and has become something usefull, and now they are ready for the smartphone. ABBYY throws another trick in
with almost instant translation: once you take a photo of a section of text, it converts it into computer-readable text, then sends it to Google for an instant translation. It will still be a Google translation but probably Google will send something understandable back.
You can do many things with your very smart phone these days. We tend to forget we still got the ability to call other people with it. This sweet app replaces the standard awnser/decline screen using a smaller screen that dont take over your entire screen and you can continue doing what you were doing or just awnswe the phone or decline and send a text to the caller if that is what you want. Or just ignore – It gets a lot easier to do this.
Almost free, for a dollar you can get thir app at GooglePlay
A really neat free podcast manager. It is still in beta stage, I get it, but I like it. It,s sharp! It may lack some features for those real hardcore listeners but I have not noticed that I missed anything yet.
The only downside I’ve found is that I need to add feeds by pasting the url link, because the search engine is quite limited.
Beta fpr Android only
