Life Dream Status: Desperate For A Doughnut Right Away? There’s An App For That!

PURE JOY

Doughbot is the stuff the American Dream is made of: for only 99 cents, you can have at your fingertips access to the exact location of any and all doughnut sellers near you. I don’t love paying for apps, but sometimes you just need a fix, you know? The app works by scanning Instagram, Yelp and Yahoo and determining which artisanal doughnut is within the shortest distance of your current location. Yes, the word “artisanal” makes me sigh heavily in most contexts too (I live in Brooklyn, so it happens a lot), but we must acknowledge that artisanal doughnuts are more delicious than your run-of-the-mill franchise pastry. Doughbot understands the importance of quality artery-crushing treats without bringing a snooty attitude to the party. Their promo video is way too cheerful for food snobs. Can I swim in doughnuts like their little cartoon robot does? Someone sign me up! [Gothamist]

Escape A Bad Date With These Sneaky Apps

bad-date-apps

If you’ve ever had the misfortune of being on a date gone terribly wrong, you’re not alone. When it comes to playing the field, first dates and awkward moments go hand in hand. From uncomfortable silences to tension you could cut with a knife, we’ve all been through dates that were so terrible that sending out an S.O.S. seemed like the next best option. Check out apps that can save you from a bad date on Your Tango…

Nipple.io App Keeps Detailed Information About Your Sex Partners

sex app

Lindsay Lohan may keep track of her sexual conquests on paper, but in the 21st century, we can all use an app on our phone. It’s called Nipple.io and it’s a spreadsheet containing detailed information about all of your sex partners. All the fuck-data is collected on the main Nipple.io site (which, by the way, is so riddled with typos — they may speak the language of love, but English is not their first language), which also features a “Tiger Woods Award” for the most active users each week. It looks to me like this will go from beta to bust: not even bros are anal enough (no pun intended) to input every handjob and fingerbang. And unless your list has Heath Ledger and James Franco on it, like Lindsay’s does, who cares? [Nipple.io via Nerve] [Image of a sex app via Shutterstock]

Unsanitary App Of The Day: Lick This Lets You Practice Oral Sex On Your iPhone Screen

A sex new app called Lick This allows users to engage in interactive exercises that supposedly train your tongue for pleasure. I know what you’re thinking: Great idea, but how is that possible without actually licking my iPhone screen? Answer: it’s not. You are meant to flick a light switch, move a zipper up and down, solve a maze, crank a handle and  ring a doorbell with your tongue ON YOUR GERM-INFESTED SCREEN. And then you want to put that dirty mouth in some unlucky person’s pants? I think not.  Although the app’s creators suggest that you wrap your phone in plastic before you get down to business, we know that people are about as likely to do that as they are to use a dental dam.

Raise your hand if you’re a caffeine addict just like I am? (I’m guessing that’s about 99 percent of us, right?) If we are ready to be slightly horrified at our behavior, UpCoffee, a new app by the life-tracking wristband folks at Jawbone, explains exactly how much caffeine you consume each day. The app hopes to make it easier for users to understand how caffeine effects our quality of sleep and ascertain that the latte or latte they guzzled a few hours ago won’t keep them awake.

This App Uses Boob Selfies To Find Your Perfect Bra Size And It Just Might Be Brilliant

Sick of those bra “fit specialists” at the department store trying to measure your boobs every time you walk into the dressing room? The app ThirdLove will help you find your bra size at home, by yourself, using selfies! Stemming from the online bra store of the same name, the app asks that users take a mirror selfie in a tight-fitting tank top, with their iPhone in view in the picture. The system then uses image recognition to measure your chest size with your iPhone as the frame of reference, like a virtual ruler. Keep reading »

BroApp Will Text Your Girlfriend So You Can Have More Bro Time

Clever Relationship Wingman? I Think Not

BroApp, the android app created by two, 29-year-old Aussie bros Tom and James, is being billed as  “a clever relationship wingman” that pre-programs and sends text messages to girlfriends so that guys “can spend more time with the Bros.” Because those extra two minutes of time spent lifting, gaming or hanging with the bros are absolutely CRUCIAL.

Dating Don'ts: 9 Tinder Profiles That Made Me Swipe Left
These types of Tinder profiles make women want to swipe left. Read More »

I have the dating app Tinder downloaded on my phone, but I only use it to play a game called “How many times can I swipe left in 60 seconds?” My current record is 44, but that’s because I take it seriously and don’t swipe left on every dude who pops up on the screen. But I don’t ever respond to any of the messages that various “matches” send to me and I have no plans to randomly meet up with someone I met through the site. Call me crazy, but I prefer to judge a stranger on more substantial information than what Tinder provides, which is, at most, a couple factoids and a handful of photos. So I’m really, really not envisioning myself using 3nder, a new app from the makers of Tinder and Grindr (the “gay” precursor to Tinder, FYI), which hopes to make threesomes easier to come by. But that’s me. Maybe this is totally your bag, in which case, you should watch this video, which makes threesomes look super hip and sexy, and cross your fingers this app makes it out of the development stage. But as an aside, how do you even pronounce 3nder? Thrinder? Help me. [Styleite]

Poll: Would You Share Your Secrets On New Confessional App ‘Secret’?

this-or-that-secret

A new, anonymous confessional app called ‘Secret’ is picking up steam in the social world, and I’m not sure how I feel about it.

Here’s how it works: Users who download ‘Secret’ can upload images or plain backgrounds with text overlays sharing personal confessions or “secrets.” The app connects to your phone’s contacts and anonymously shares your secret with “your circle,” which includes your direct contacts or friends of friends who also have the app. If a “secret” is posted by someone more than 3 degrees away, it’s marked with a location stamp.  Keep reading »

“Baby Selfie” App Lets Kiddos Take Their Own Baby Photos

"Baby Selfie" App Lets Kiddos Take Their Own Baby Photos

New parents: don’t have enough baby pictures? Thought not. There actually might be some minutes of the day in which your child’s every move is not being documented for posterity and/or Facebook.  But fret not: now your baby can take pictures of herself with a new app called — wait for it — Baby Selfie. The app makes silly noises and displays cartoon animals onscreen, which surprise your baby while your smartphone’s camera snaps away. “We capture your baby’s reaction in unique, unexpected photos that you’ll love to share,” explains the 99-cent app’s description on GooglePlay. (Unique! Because your baby is a special snowflake!) This all sounds like it could be cute … but what if they are unleashing an epidemic of baby duckface? [GooglePlay via Laughing Squid]
