Tech Spotlight: Social fashion app crowdsources clothing ID and recommendations

ASAP54 is an app that taps both the crowd and fashion experts for clothing identification and personalized suggestions.

Finding out information about a stylish garment found in a photo or spotted on the street can sometimes be a pain, and while visual search — as used by apps like Snap Fashion — is getting better, it’s not always accurate. ASAP54 is an app that taps both the masses and fashion experts for clothing identification and personalized recommendations.

Featured Seasonal Roasts

Each region we source from produces a signature flavor profile, but they all have one thing in common: a proud, longstanding tradition of great coffee. Our beans are roasted locally in the U.S.A. – a custom, fine-tailored process to illuminate the defining characteristics of each region’s harvest.

Tech Spotlight: Social Santa app can track how often you curse on Twitter

Have you been naughty or nice this year? Are you expecting Santa to bring you some lovely gifts? You can check if you deserve it via the app called Social Santa that analyses your tweets and counts how many times you’ve used obscene words—not in real life though, but on Twitter.

This simple and fun experience for both mobile and desktops has been developed by the UK social-media specialist A Social Media Agency, which is part of 10 Yetis PR Agency, together with the web developers Forrk. As the creators of the app say, this tracker is “going to save Santa a lot of time” to identify who has been nice or naughty.

Want to BreakUp? There’s an App for that

 

So you’ve had enough, but still don’t have to guts to tell this in his/her face? iOS app developers are one step ahead of you, as they created an app that sends break-up texts depending on several criteria pertaining to your relationship.

Upon paying $0.99 and installing the app on an iOS device, cowards users have to make a few selections. First of all, the gender of the soon-to-be-dumped person must be selected. Next, the type of relationship needs to be picked and the options are “Serious” and “Casual”. The final step implies picking the context of the break-up. While some of the options are rather realistic (“I lost interest” & “I found someone else”), others are incredibly hilarious and improbable (“I was eaten by a bear”).

Tech Spotlight: LikeMind App

 

LikeMind does not bury the lead when it comes to what it’s offering. It’s pretty much right in the name of the app. This is a social network for discovering people with similar interests, opinions, ideas, etc. It’s designed to help you find new people and socialize with them based on a commonality between the two of you, like if Facebook started linking you with people based on things that you “like.” Available this week for iOS, LikeMind is aiming to bring people nearby even closer by giving them a reason to get to know each other.

You can think of LikeMind as part social network and part Craigslist posting. The social networking is pretty much as you’d expect: You create a profile, put up some pictures, provide basic information about yourself (including your relationship status because “dating site” is always the best backup plan for any social network) to fill out said profile, and make it public for people who may stumble across you in their location-based feed of possible new friends.

New Mobile App from Nara Delivers Restaurant Recommendations Just For You

 

 

We’ve already seen Dish.fm crunch the massive amount of data from online restaurant reviews to recommend the best eateries for its users, but our latest spotting aims to go even further to personalize results. Nara is an app that uses a Pandora-like neural network that learns users’ tastes every time they use it and offer accurate recommendations for eating out.

Created by a team consisting of “neuroscientists, computer scientists, astrophysicists, artists and entrepreneurs”, the app first asks users a few questions about the kind of eateries they like, based on food types, atmosphere and demographic, among others. When a suggestion is made, it can either be upvoted or downvoted depending on the user’s opinion, which can be logged either before or after they’ve tried it out. Foursquare check-ins are integrated to keep track of where users have been before, and which restaurants they like to go to regularly. By checking this against the decisions made by every other Nara user, the system quickly begins to intuit the kinds of decisions made by those with similar tastes. The following video explains more about the app:

Tech Spotlight: SapientNitro Social Stock Ticker

 

 

SapientNitro has created a ‘social stock ticker’ aimed at CEOs of publicly listed companies to measure social media activity, designed in the image of telegraphic stock tickers of the mid-19th century.

“The social stock ticker brings the same focus to business-critical social conversations – a space with which C-suite executives are notably disconnected. By crashing together digital with analogue outputs, the social stock ticker introduces a visible and audible reminder to busy executives of the value of their company’s social stock.”

The device prints hourly and daily reports of positive and negative tweets and estimations on whether public sentiment is up or down.

Social Dining with Blend About

 

What is Social Dining?
Have you ever gone to brunch or dinner with a group of friends? If you answered “yes”, then you’ve participated in Social Dining.

Social dining is when a group of people meet at someone’s home or at a restaurant to enjoy a meal together. It is the use of meals specifically as a means to connect with others: eat to socialize. Brunch, dinner, and supper parties are popular examples of Social Dining events. The location is as important as the quality of conversation, people, and food. A friendly atmosphere and a good meal enrich the social networking experience.

Social dining differs from a dining club in the sense that it is not exclusive, but promotes an inclusive atmosphere. Friends and strangers alike can share the social dining experience either at someone’s home or at a restaurant.

 

blend

 

What is BlendAbout?
In a nutshell, BlendAbout is Social Networking – offline. BlendAbout’s Social Dining service matches people with common interests into small groups for meals at restaurants.

BlendAbout will schedule group meals for you and 5 other people that share your interests, at restaurants in your area. A small intimate group allows everyone to comfortably connect and make new friends, meet potential business partners, or maybe even find that special someone. There’s no limit to the number of group meals you can attend in your area. If you are traveling for business or for fun, we can arrange group meals for you in your destination city.

We aren’t a typical social networking service. You can invite your existing friends to BlendAbout to join you in your social dining adventures. However, our primary goal is to help you build a network of new friends from the people you meet at your group meals.

The core BlendAbout experience is meeting REAL people in person and sharing a REAL meal together. We feel that the internet is an incredible tool that allows people to connect in so many ways. However, it seems that people are connecting more often in a virtual environment and less often in-person. We strive to bring back the ancient art of human connection.

Great Food + Great People = the Ultimate Pairing.

 

How to Make New Friends using BlendAbout
Creating an account takes less than a minute. With a few simple clicks of the mouse you’ll be on your way to starting your REAL social dining experience. It begins similarly to any other social network: by entering basic information your account has been created.

Then just tell us a little about yourself, such as the type of food you like and what types of things interest you. The more specific you get the better we can match you to other users for group meals.

If you don’t want to attend group meals alone, you can invite a friend and create a Blended Profile with them, so you can attend group meals together.

If you’re only available on certain days, you can visit the Group Meals section to let us know when you’re available.

See a specific user that you’d like to meet? Add them to your wishlist. If they wishlist you as well, you could meet them at your next group meal.
