Bokeh (iOS and Android coming soon)

Bokeh is an enjoyable, well-designed “lifeblogging” app that a lets users store text and photos. You can also get a personal blog website (which can be public or private) so you can access your memories from your desktop.

KeyMe (iOS)

Everybody has lost their keys at one point or another. It’s an inevitable aspect of life.

KeyMe is attempting to make the crushing revelation of being locked out of your home a little less painful–and, if you live in New York City, less expensive.


Instead of hiring a locksmith to help you get back in your home or car, KeyMe makes a digital copy of your keys. If you lose them, you simply visit one of the company’s kiosks, and print a new copy.

The 2014 World Cup is fast approaching. However, if it’s not approaching fast enough, you can download the FIFA app, which provides all the latest coverage for a staggering 197 leagues across the globe.

ZenDay also breaks the status quo of task management apps with a 3-D layout–and features plugins for Google tasks and Evernote. Check out the video below to learn more:

Flava (iOS and Android)


Flava is somewhere between a personal diary and scrapbook–users enter text, photo, voice, location, and multimedia to create a personalized log of their daily going ons. Those memories can then be shared by exporting specific moments, or entire timelines, to social media accounts.
