This is, inexplicably, exactly what it says it is. A guide to all the plugs used around the world. The level of detail, and quality of production put into this app will boggle your mind, as will the plethora of plug technologies used throughout the world. Enough types for some people to need an app to help them navigate. For the rest of us, it’s like weirdly fascinating.
Each electrical outlet is illustrated with clear sharp images that you can share with friends by e-mail. Don’t leave home withouit it!
The culmination of the app store ecosystem’s “an app for that” trend has been the creation of apps for the tiniest minutiae of life. This app is proposed to solve the problem of a noisy bathroom trip, in close quarters with someone you don’t want “privy” to your bathroom noises.
That alone isn’t enough to make this app weird. There are lots of apps that serve a niche purpose or social situation. Where this app gets tipped into weird territory is the “economy” tab, where you can track both the personal water savings, and the global water savings for which this app is responsible.
I found myself listening intently to the sound quality for some time before I realized that no matter how realistic the sound, nobody will actually be fooled by this app, because you will exit the bathroom dry and clothed. No matter, when it comes to fake shower sounds, whatever your reason, Fake Shower has you covered.

Much like the previously mentioned SLMMSK, Despair offers an alternate take on the artificially happy world of social media. A couple taps and your photos are bleak, drab, and depressing. Perfect for those days when you want to see it painted black.
You’re all familiar with the concept of single-serving websites, yes? Sites like isitchristmas.com or Khaaan! were all the rage in 2008. But fast-forward a moment, because it’s 2014 right now and we demand a little more from our single-serving things.
Is it Tuesday? is a single-serving app that has a lot to offer besides the answer to the eponymous question. It also features a countdown to Tuesday, some great Tuesday facts, and even stats like how many Tuesdays there are this month (5). If you enter your birth date, it can even tell you if you were born on a Tuesday (I was!).
Don’t let Tuesday catch you unawares, make sure you have this app handy.
Author and visual artist Douglas Coupland has a formidable body of work. Perhaps most widely known for coining the term “Generation X”, he’s also written dozens of books and at least one TV show and invented the concept of a Tag Cloud.
With all that in mind, it’s no surprise he would have turned his hand to app development. What is surprising is the app itself. Snorrt! allows you to record, analyze and share videos of snorers. The app was apparently inspired by Douglas Coupland’s sensitivity to noises, and issues with hearing.
If you find snoring to be a nuisance, and want to catalogue it, this is your app. For the rest of us, here is Douglas Coupland’s 2009 sculpture Digital Orca:
I PUT BLUSH ON HER SHES AN ANGEL HOLY SHIT
