DietBetter.com and the companion app Diet Bet (iTunes) let you bet on yourself to lose weight!  The games are a $25 buy-in.  Your options are:  "Lose 4% in 4 Weeks" or "Lose 10% in 6 Months".  At the end of the game, the pot is split between those who hit their goal weight.  To keep it fair and for verification, you submit a full-body selfie and a picture of your weight on the scale...before and after.  *The pictures are submitted to a referee only and are not published.

Tied in with 911, this app helps first responders in cardiac emergency situations.  After the dispatchers sends an ambulance to the scene, an alert is sent to app users who are in the immediate area.  The hope is that someone 50 feet away could perform CPR and potentially save a life in the time it takes an ambulance to arrive.  *The alerts are only sent for victims in a public place like a park or a mall.  After downloading the app, select Cleveland EMS and Westshore Fire Departments in the settings.  Pulse Point currently works in the cities of Cleveland, Westlake, Bay Village, Rocky River, Fairview Park and North Ridgeville.  Free in GooglePlay and iTunes

Facebook Paper for iOS. If Facebook and Flipboard and Pintrest had a baby...this would be it. It changes the way you view your newsfeed on your phone. Photos are more prominent and scrolling is side-to-side (like in your gallery) instead of up and down. You can also organize your interests into tiles and flip through news stories. Free for iPhones only...no iPad or Android versions yet.

With less and less of us carrying cash around, this is the digital equivalent of opening your wallet.

 

It automatically detects your income and fixed expenses, then calculates your available spending money for the day, the week or the month. Just link your bank accounts and credit cards to the app and it does the rest.

 

Every time you make a purchase, the app updates and deducts that amount from your available spending total.

 

The display is very simple, it looks kind of like a fishbowl being emptied of water.  Every time you spend money, the water level in the fishbowl drops.  When the bowl is empty...so is your wallet.  *fishbowl image is an analogy, actual image is a circle with color filled-in

 

Free on both Android and iPhone
