  2. Invisible Girlfriend App Helps Users Hide Significant Others from Orcs Fake Romantic Relationships

    I'd prefer my partners to have Alex Mack goo powers, but ok.

    Although the phrase "invisible girlfriend" carries some scary implications, I'm surprisingly okay with Invisible Girlfriend (or Boyfriend!), an app that launched yesterday just in time for one of the most potentially awkward days of the year for singles. Sure, the premise is a little weird, but no more weird than society's ferocious insistence that everyone find one partner with which to unite their souls for all of time, right?

  4. GoldieBlox’s First App Will Teach Kids About the Magic Of… Gif-Making?

    Yeah ok.

    Y'all should be aware that I'm a big fan of movies, gifs, and girls learning about science (specifically, in this case, the science of early motion pictures and the zoopraxiscope). But my favorite thing about the trailer for GoldieBlox's first app has to be the little girl version of the trailer guy voice they have going.

    0/5 stars. Would not get arrested by again.

  6. Tom Hanks’ App Wants to Turn Your iPad Into a Typewriter, and It’s Dominating the App Store

    Yes. That Tom Hanks.

    Hanx Writer is an app that turns your iPad into a typewriter, or at least it gives you the feel of using one. The app is free, but offers in-app purchases to unlock different typewriter skins. Are there really that many iPad users with fond memories of old typewriters? Apparently so. Hanx Writer is sitting at the top of the App Store after its first week.

  7. Push For Pizza Is an App Where You Push a Button and You Get Pizza

    Uber, but for— *gets slapped in the face*

    Almost everyone loves pizza but hates having to go on a computer or fill out online delivery forms, or call a place and talk to people on the phone, or... move. Well, a team of five teenage guys in Brooklyn has solved that particular problem in the dorkiest, most obvious way possible.

  8. When You’re Sliding Into First… Avoid Diarrhea With a New App From the CDC… irst?

    ...or we guess you could probably use it to get diarrhea.

    Millions of people contract diarrhea when traveling each year. At the very least, it can ruin your trip, but it can also pose a real health risk to some people. To help travelers avoid foods and drinks that could potentially cause diarrhea, the CDC has a new app that can identify potentially risky choices.

  9. New App Wants to Be Tinder But For Jobs

    "M seeking HR administrator. Nothing serious, just a casual employment status. No fatties."

    Call me old-fashioned, but I'm not a fan of Tinder. Like Grindr and Blendr before it, the app seems pretty shallow and not at all the sort of thing you'd use to find someone you'd want to spend a good chunk of your life with. But you know what else also takes up a good chunk of your life? Jobs. And of course there's an app for that too, now.
