In a blog posted by Mashable, they discuss four different up-and-coming apps that are unique and becoming more popular. These apps can help give you a more enjoyable weekend, depending on your mood of course.
If you’re feeling playful, Shnap for iPhone is just the thing you’re looking for. It will capture your attention and challenge you to an elaborate game of rating and producing stylized photos. Social Listing is for your inner bargain hunter on your iPhone or Android, it allows you to find items your neighbors are ready to get rid of.
For those of you who are “self-promoters,” Simply Events is perfect for you. It’s allows you to create a social calendar of your appearances and upcoming events that you can share with others. And for those who feel like being generous, Givey will let you make a donation and share it will all of your Twitter followers.
Shnap may not sound that fun at first, but I’d be willing to bet that it’s got to be pretty addicting. Users can see each other’s stylized photos, or “Shnaps”, and are encouraged to rate them based off of the following 5-option rating system: LOL, Meh, WTF, Cool or Wow!
Just remember that the persons photos that you rate can also rate yours. So try not to be too mean.
According to Mashable, “Social Listing is a simple and fast mobile app that connects local buyers to sellers.” It definitely doesn’t have the same number of users as Craigslist, but I’m sure it will catch on and do well.
Givey allows users to make secure donations to a charity of their choice simply by tweeting or sending an SMS. Since Givey is based out of the UK, currently only UK taxpayers can use the app, but it is planned to launch in the U.S. later this year.
The app “Simply Events”, which happens to be my favorite, allows you to share different social events and activities that you either plan to attend or are planning yourself, with friends and family. It’s a simple, easy way to inform people of your social life in one place.
Apps amaze me more and more, and these four are no exception. It just goes to show that there’s an app out there for everyone.
