Looking for some cool new apps? These new and newly updated apps are must haves for the month of June 2014. Forget Yo…these apps are actually functional, useful, and really appealing.
1. Embark – Meet the World
Not to be confused with the popular series of transit apps of the same name, Embark is a new app from developer Jiho Kang. Embark has a cool backstory: it’s the third installment in Kang’s series of cultural exchange apps. Kang created a virtual pen pal app called Wander a couple of years back, and then refined his approach with an app called Planett.
Now, Kang is back on the scene with Embark. Like Wander, Embark matches you up with a “guide” from somewhere else in the world. You and your guide can share photographs of your part of the world, completing photo missions like photographing local landmarks or your daily meals along the way. If you love meeting new people or just consider yourself to be an armchair traveler, this app is a must-try.
Lulu used to be just a private network for girls that’s designed for girl talk and rating your dates. However, Lulu is worth checking out this month because Lulu has just opened up the app to men as well.
LuLu now grants guys access to honest, anonymous feedback from the girls who know them, providing personalized intel into what they’re doing right (and wrong.). Lulu is a great place for ladies to dish, and for men to get the intel that will help them up their dating game.
In the video above, one passionate Noisli fan talks about why he loves this app.
Noisli is a background noise and color generator that’s ideal for working and relaxing. By providing background activity, you may find that your productivity and concentration are improved.
In addition to proving a pleasant background noise, this app also includes a text editor for distraction-free writing. This facet of the app includes both plain text and Markdown support.
4. OMG Transit
OMG Transit is a great resource if you regularly use public transport. There are a lot of great Transit apps for iPhone out there (and Apple even owns some of them), but OMG Transit sticks out because of a great user interface and helpful push notifications. For commuters and travelers alike, this is a useful app to include in your personal app article.
5. Inky Mail
If you like Inky Mail, you may also be interested in the desktop version of Inky. You can learn more about it in the video above.
Inky Mail is a great email app for people who have multiple email accounts for personal, business, or junk use. Inky lets you get organized, reduce clutter, and find your most important messages quickly.
Inky stands out because itutomatically sorts and filters messages into meaningful categories like Personal, Subscriptions, Deals, and Notes. You can also search your old emails by hashtag, keyword or contact. If you’re the kind of person who hates setting up filters, or just need to quickly organize an archive of old messages, this is a supremely useful tool.
