There is this app “What’s on my food’’ which will give you inside information about pesticide residues that can be on your food, even after washing it.
How much of this is really on the food you are eating and what are the dangers of these pesticides?
The Pesticide Action Network’s Iphone app gives you the answers to these questions.
It shows a list of foods where pesticides are on and what chemicals are the most dangerous ones. The app let’s you compare organic to conventional foods in a new visual way. Their results come from multiple authoritative sources. You never knew these toxins where on your food untill you discover it with ‘What’s on my food’.
With this app you can make informed choices at the grocery store which is very nice and helpful.
It has future growth potential because more and more people don’t just eat whatever they think is nice without knowing what is inside (or in this situation on) the stuff. We want all information nowadays about what is healthy, how foods are made or how company’s work with the products. I think this form of transparency is a really good one. You can consume more ‘safe’ foods and become more healthy because of the knowledge you have. Your quality of life will be affected positively, especially the part of physical wellbeing. http://www.whatsonmyfood.org http://organicgardensnetwork.blogspot.nl
Superb is an app. With this app you can save and share cool places where you are. It shows your friends where you’re at and which places you like most.
Superb is developed for people who visit cities they’ve never been before. The app wil tell them where it’s cool and which places are most visited by certain people. You can also leave a comment why you like that place so much on twitter and people without twitter can follow you on this app.
We are living in this sharing-economy where everybody shares information with eachother.
Everyting has become transparent. Sometimes, a little to much. I don’t want to know everything about someone, but you can find whatever you want. It is clear that we love to share our experiences with the rest of the world.
For example if you want to go on a holiday, all you’ve got to do is check the internet and you will find hundreds of opinions about places, hotels and restaurants. Well, that is cool in my opinion! I think there will be more and more ways to share information like this in the future, especially because of the technological developments.
Is my brother already on his way home from school or is he playing soccer with his friends?
And where is my dad, is he still at work?
The brand new free app Lokki (i0s & Android) will show it. The app allows users to check out where family members (or friends) are at that time. Unlike many other so-called family trackers, this app lets users temporarily hide their location if they just don’t want to be found.
This app has future growth potential because nowadays every family member has a smartphone .calling because you don’t know where someone is will be oldfashioned soon.
This app is built by the Finnisch security company F-secure and it also contains a built-in chat function.
I think that is ery useful too.

If you’re really active on the social web, your contacts can be found in many different places.
On facebook for example, or Gmail. Searching for those details can take very much time if you don’t remember where you got your contact from.
With the AllSync app you can save all your contact details from services like facebook, twitter, Gmail, Yahoo and Linkedin on your iphone.
AllSync links social relations directly on your iphone contacts. Wich can prevent having double contacts on your phone.
An app like this like this is usefull for almost everybody.
For people like me who use social media a lot. But also businesspeople could be very interested in this app because they can also save their business contacts without searching for them in e-mails, on cards or in papers. They can just easy save them on their iphone.
With the growing number of social media, we get more and more contacts which makes it nice to use this app.

The new Moves-app shows you how active you really are. He counts your steps and saves your activity’s. Moves gets his data from the built-in sensors of the smartphone. This app is already installed on more than 2,5 million iphones.
So it’s already popular. Only iphone-users could use it before, but this app is now ready to make the switch to android. The nice thing about this app is that it is positive about your sportive actions but isn’t going to whine if you decide to stay on the couch for a day.
So it’s very motivational for people to get up and move more, which is very important nowadays. Because there are so many people who suffer from being overweight.
I think this app could help them in a friendly way.
