Nearly two weeks before Apple opens pre-orders – and a month prior to general release – reports indicate that the first 24 Apple Watch apps have been approved by Apple’s App Store team.

Interestingly, all of the Apple Watch apps in question will arrive as updates to their iOS counterparts (New functionality present in a future iOS Twitter update, for example) – and will primarily bring new functions to the Apple Watch as a companion/utility device next to the iPhone.

Uber

Uber always seems to be embroiled in some sort of controversy. Whether it’s illegal drivers or questionable investors – it seems that wherever Uber goes, controversy is sure to follow.

Last year, the multi-billion dollar taxi company found themselves in some serious hot water in India, when a woman accused an Uber driver of abducting and raping her. Now naturally, these are super serious allegations and one that should definitely not be taken lightly.

And clearly Uber didn’t. The company is now stepping up their security measures by introducing an in-app panic (or SOS) button that will alert local authorities when an emergency arises while you are on your Uber trip.  (more…)

Katy Perry

Celebrities are always looking for more ways to make a ton of money. Whether it’s fragrances, couture or even mobile games and apps – they can’t resist plastering their face on almost everything.

And now it looks like pop princess Katy Perry is set to follow in the footsteps of another famous celebrity by getting her own mobile game.

Just like reality star Kim Kardashian, Katy will launch her own mobile game that will feature her voice and most likely a character of herself.

According to a press release released yesterday, Katy Perry’s game looks set to have a similar premise to that of the Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game, where players will have to climb a metaphorical ladder and build a career to gain success and reach the top:

“…(sic)[the game will] introduce players to a digital playground of global success and talent” a portion of the press release read.  (more…)

Check out these cool Apple Watch app concepts

Published by on Feb 3rd, 2015, No Comments

Apple WatchApple is likely to release the long awaited Apple Watch in April this year. There has been a lot of speculation around how the watch will integrate into the iOS system. We still need to find out how the watch will perform battery wise and if it will only be another gimmick watch (as many of them seem to be these days).

A big question will be how Apple integrates 3rd part apps on the Apple Watch and how the app designers design them. Traditionally companies do a good job with their own integrated apps but either do not support or have crappy 3rd party apps avaiable on the watch platform. Well a few talented designers have given their input into 3rd party app design. (more…)

Need a personal stylist? Theres an app for that

Published by on Jan 27th, 2015, No Comments

Closet Space

As a woman, I am most certainly familiar with the dilemma of “I have nothing to wear” – even though I have a closet full of clothes. I am sure there are many women and men that can relate to this feeling of distress.

Of course, an option is to enlist the help of a stylist. but, this costs (a lot) of money and not all of us are Hollywood celebrities. Luckily, we are living in 2015, so naturally there is an app that will act as your personal stylist and even schedule outfits for you weeks in advance – so you never feel like you have nothing to wear.

ClosetSpace is the brainchild of Stylistics – who has developed other fashion-based apps – and will essentially create a completely unique, curated outfit for you from the clothes that you own. That’s right, those same pieces staring at you from your closet that you have no idea how to put together.

As the company calls it, ClosetSpace is a ‘style management platform’. Pretentious name aside, the app is extremely detailed and would be an excellent tool to use for fashion forward people.  (more…)
