New Lustr iPhone App Plays Hot Potato With Sales

Screw you, internetz, for providing so many opportunities to spend all of our money on shoes. First you give us online shopping, then come online sample sales, now Lustr’s new iPhone app, which sends notifications of nearby New York sales to your phone. Yes, it’s super useful, but it also makes it hard to concentrate on what you’re doing when, after stepping off the train in the East Village and finding that Alexander Wang is marked down 40% a mere five blocks away. We are not strong enough to handle the temptation. New Yorkers, download the new app here and count down until you’re broke. [Racked] Keep reading »

Tiffany Engagement Ring App Modernizes Hint-Dropping To Your Future Fiancé

Before, it was “subtly” dropping ring hints by making comments while window shopping, commenting on a celeb’s new bling, or whispering, “Tiffany’s Lucida cut 2.5 carats sterling setting” into his ear while he was sleeping. Now, selecting an engagement ring has gone high-tech thanks to Tiffany’s Engagement Ring Finder iPhone app, which the jeweler released today. The free program lets you browse the catalog, select a style according to your desires, measure ring sizes on your iPhone’s screen, and save your preferred designs. (Uh, dangerous. You will become mesmerized and obsessed whether marriage is in your future or not.)

So now all you have to do is “discreetly” play with the program in front of your future fiancé. Or better yet, download the app and put it on his own phone when he’s not looking. [AppShopper] Keep reading »

iMaria, An iPhone App For Men Who Can Only Deal With Virtual Women

There are many sad, sad men on this planet, but the saddest of all can only have a girlfriend if she exists on their iPhone. The new iPhone app iMaria is a Croatian Playboy Playmate (naturally) with a “cute English accent.” Like the good little non-threatening virtual girlfriend that she is, iMaria wears low-cut outfits and asks if you’d like her to cook you something or go tan at the beach. All that is sad enough without the creep factor: the producer, Premika, advertises their app by trilling, “iMaria is a fun and interactive virtual girlfriend application that lets you be in control!”

Guys, if the only person who will let you be “in control” is a digital nudie model girlfriend you purchased for 99 cents on iTunes, maybe you need to think about that. [PremikaOnline.com] Keep reading »

Lady Gaga “Poker Face” Cover Using iPhone Apps

This rad Korean karaoke nerd managed to figure out a way to create a backing track for Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” using nuthin’ but iPhone apps. Then she takes to the mic and kills it! Amazeballs. She’s a whole lot better than me with my hairbrush. [The Daily What] Keep reading »

iPhone App Investigates Your Date

Good news — well, depending on your definition of good. Two new iPhone apps, “Is He Really Single?” and “Stud or Dud,” act like an electronic private eye to collect information on your date—like whether he’s been married, divorced, has a criminal background, or has filed for divorce. All you need is your iPhone, the app, your date’s full name, his date of birth, and the fortitude to face the disappointment in his face when he realizes what psycho business you’re up to. Oh, and extra fortitude in case one of these apps actually dredges up something you don’t want to know. The creators of these apps are calling them fun, but their potential goes far beyond Googling the whiskey goggles off the Taylor Lautner look-alike you’ve been chatting up. [CNN]
