There’s an app for that


Of course there is. A blogger named Corey Eridon has compiled some weird apps you might have to have … or not. Here’s a sample:

  • Cuddlr – Cuddly, a location-based networking app. It lets you find people in your area you can cuddle with.
  • Carrr Matey – This app will help you find where you parked your car, in a pirate voice.
  • Demotivational Pics – An app that reminds you that, yes, things are bad and could get worse.
  • Run Pee – A helpful app that can alert you in a movie that you have time to get to the restroom before you miss anything important.
  • Yo – An app to aid your communication skills by saying “yo” to someone you meet.
  • Spirit Story Box: Ghost Hunting Tool – An app that speaks ‘ghost’ will help you decipher what the ghosts around you are really saying.

There are some on the list not suitable to repeat or just too stupid to mention (even more than the ones above). Some apps are really helpful. Are you constantly running late? You may need the ‘Bounce’ app or the ‘Running Late’ app to notify your friends that you’re going to be late. Or you could have enough respect for your friends to change your behavior and arrive on time for once.

There are certainly a number of apps that have proved to be a great way to access information, accomplish tasks, schedule appointments, etc. I just wonder how tied we are to all our technological wizardry.

One man’s tombstone reflects our current reality: “I was so busy programming my life that I forgot to live.”

Whether you are photo shopping your cat or planning your next trip to the john, remember that more information is not always better. Life still comes down to what and who matters most. Someone has said that the best app is a face-to-face conversation. You can get all the updates you could ever want.
