IslendigaApp Stops Icelanders From Committing Accidental Incest

islendingaapp-winners

Iceland is a relatively small country, with a population of about 320,000. Not to mention the families in Iceland have been there for generations, and at this point a great many of the Icelandic people are potentially related. So, needless to say, it can be a bit tricky to keep track of who is and isn’t a distant cousin in Iceland.

Hence the relevance of IslendigaApp. IslendigaApp, based on the online database Islendingabok (which translates to “Book of Icelanders”), is an app for Android phones with a pretty straight forward purpose. All that needs to be done is two people touch their phones. If nothing happens, there’s no direct (or, at least, close) relation, but if an alarm goes off? Relation alerted! While IslendigaApp was originally created to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Islendingabok to further explore the genealogy of the Icelandic people, it appears that most people are just using it to make sure they don’t sleep with any relatives. At least we know the Icelandic people aren’t gunning for an Oedipus complex anytime soon.

Kwikset Presents Kevo: An iPhone App that Acts Like a Key

kevo1

Isn’t leaving your keys at home always the worst? You don’t even realize it until you’re finally back on the front steps of your place, digging through your pockets or your purse only to have that instant realization that you left your keys on the bathroom counter again. What’s worse, your roommate’s out all night and you can’t seem to get a hold of them. You’re then forced to wait on the steps like an idiot, hunt down someone with a copy of the key, search for that key you hid under a rock in your garden a couple months back (crap, which rock was it???), or break into your own house/apartment while trying to make it look like you’re not taking part in some B&E ploy so no one will call the cops on you.

Kwikset knows this is a bit of an issue with some people, which is why they’ve gone and created the Kevo lock and iPhone app.Continue Reading

Awesome App That Disguises Unpleasant Bathroom Noises With Fake Shower Sounds

Some couple’s really don’t care if their significant other can hear their butt’s trumping and pumping from the bathroom, but for those who are still in the place in their relationship where romance isn’t dead in the water, the last thing you want is your lover hearing your posterior’s roots and toots!

For those people there was previously just one option, to open the shower tap and hope that the sounds of the flowing water masked any unpleasant fluctuation or plopping droppers. As we all know, that is an awful waste of water, so now there is an alternative the “Fake Shower” iOS app from Akatu. Continue Reading

Park.IT App Aims to Make Parking Less of a Hassle

parking app
While many people find taking a drive to be quite a relaxing experience, I think we can all agree that the nature of parking is far more stressful than it should be. It’s difficult to even find a parking spot at times, and when you do you’re always fretting about how much it costs, how long you can leave your car there, or if you might be in danger of getting towed. That’s where Park.IT comes in.

Developed by Calvin Liu, who thought this up after parking in his normal space only to have his car towed because no one told him the parking rules had changed, the Park.IT app is intended to make parking a whole lot less stressful. It will tell you not only how much it costs to park in certain locations, but also if it’s safe to park in a spot and not get fined for it. While you’re off on business, the Park.IT app will give you reminders to make sure you get back to your car before the parking time is up. How it works is you tap the location you’d like to park near and plug in the amount of time you’ll need to be parked for, and then the app will let you know if you can do just that and how much it will cost.Continue Reading

Nobody enjoys going through a breakup and parting ways with a loved one has always been a particularly unpleasant experience, however in today’s social media age moving on is a little more tricky than it used to be.

The Authentic Weather App Does Not Mess Around

fucking-weather-app
Sometimes blunt honesty is what we need in our lives. So much of our day-to-day living is based on deciphering other people’s words and trying to look deeper into meanings and metaphors that constantly surround us, which can cause way too much stress for one person. Now you never have to worry about that when it comes to weather. Thanks to Tobias van Schneider, there is now the Authentic Weather app for your phone. This app does not dick around, nor does it tell you “well, it’s this weather now, but it could be this other weather later.” The Authentic Weather app tells you plainly “It’s fucking raining now,“Just fucking grey,” “Freezing cold like a fucking fridge,”Fucking love is in the air (it’s sunny, for those who didn’t get it),” and at least a hundred more responses like this. The app will also tell you the specific degrees, if requested, but why even bother with plain fact when it’s so amusing, and truthful, to begin with?Continue Reading

Mobile phones are rolling out a new app called Drinking Mirror, in hopes of getting people, especially women, to cut back on the amount that they drink on a weekly basis.

The Drinking Mirror app was spurred by the Drop a Glass Size Campaign over in Scotland, set about to ensure that women cut back a little on the amount that they drink. Studies show that 38% of Scottish women are drinking more than the recommended amount per week, and that the number of alcohol-related deaths among thirty to forty-four year old women has doubled in the last twenty years.
