Saga shows off what Google Glasses could do (albeit today)

Published #context, #agent, #intelligent, #companion, #mobile, #iphone

Saga is a new kind of app. It studies what you do. How you do it. When you do it. Where you do it. Who you do it with. It's an app that studies your context and builds an intelligent companion.

Yes, it's iPhone only today, but will come to Android soon.

Here founder Andy Hickl shows me the app and explains to me what it does, and how it'll protect my privacy. Sign up for it at http://www.getsaga.com/

A Tesla and Twist test drive all in one

Published #tesla, #twist, #iphone, #app, #context, #location, #calendar

Yesterday I got to drive a Tesla S test drive. But why? To try out a new iPhone app that lets people know when you are going to arrive. Get the app here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/twist/id449988837?mt=8

I've been using it for the past few weeks and it really rocks. Better than competitor Glympse, because it works better. We go into why in the interview (stick around after the Tesla drive to see more).

eBuddy brings awesome group messaging to your phone

Published #mobile, #messaging, #iphone, #web

Are you using SMS mostly to chat with other people on your mobile phone? Well, there's a better way: ebuddy.com's XMS. Here I get a look at this Amsterdam-based company (we visited on a Saturday, so founder/CEO Jan-Joost Rueb had his daughter with him). Use it to message with groups, but it does a lot more than SMS and here you see what it does. Get it at http://www.ebuddy.com/

There's big business in coupons and this app not only is free but will save you money when you go to the grocery store.

Way over the freaky line (but very cool) is PlaceMe, journaling app

Published #location, #move, #iphone, #android, #journal, #app

Everyone I've shown this app to today (it came out last week) says "that's freaky." What does it do? It captures a ton of data on your phone as you move through the world. Right now it keeps a list of places. But here I sit down with founder Sam Liang for a discussion about just what data it captures, how that data could be used, and how he's going to get people to cross the freaky line. This is the future folks and, it, is, indeed, freaky. Learn more at https://www.placemeapp.com/placeme/ It's a free Android or iPhone app.

An awesome gift app: Karma, reminds you of important dates

Published #gift, #iphone, #mobile, #app, #friends, #family, #buy

When I was first pitched on Karma I was skeptical. Why do we need a mobile app to remind us for gifts to get other people? But I was blown away by this app. Here I get a demo, and you can learn more at http://getkarma.com/

Extraordinary iPhone app shows you detail of houses you take photos of

This is pretty crazy. Use your iPhone to take a picture of any house and it shows you details about that house. I've tried it a few times and it's always been accurate. See the mind blowing technology behind it. Here the CEO, Guy Wolcott, shows it to me while walking down the street in front of my house. Gett it at http://www.sawbuck.com
