Buzzdoes rewards you for spreading the word about your favorite apps. Recommend an app, earn reward points and turn them into cash or get free apps!

We all love to share. With the internet becoming increasingly more social, most of us surf the internet based on recommendations from those in our social networks. For instance, you sign in to Facebook and your wall is abound with recommendations, both sponsored and viral. We then return the favor by sharing and ‘liking’ things ourselves. Word-of-mouth marketing has always been powerful and today, with a marketplace awash in advertising, there’s little authentic influence aside from the voice of someone you know or trust. That’s why the modern consumer is comfortable seeking and giving advice on everything from movies to restaurants to childcare to entertainment and information sources through social –it’s our primary way to source vendors. I know for myself, I just list who/what I’m looking for as a status update. Unfortunately, we don’t get any monetary benefit from all our hard work –that is, until now.

Introducing Buzzdoes, an app that rewards you when you recommend an app and spread the word about your favorite apps.

Spotify, amongst many other interesting startups to have popped up over the last decade, reinvented the music industry; giving us access to whatever track we want –whenever and wherever we want it.

It all started with Napster, which let students exchange music collections without having to carry tapes or CDs. In short order, Napster revolutionized the world of music. Anyone with the Napster app could download music through peer-to-peer technology without having to pay a thing. Labels got worried and lawsuits ensued; the result was a Supreme Court against the company in favor of record labels. Napster evolved, however, not everyone was pleased. In fact, many argued that the company was a great service for music, promoting national artists internationally and helping people share music with each other (after all, it was for the common good!). Although the technology caused problems for recording studios with declining CD sales, it continued to benefit ‘music’ in more ways than one.

MediSafe, an app for medication, helps patients take their medicine on time, even alerting them about prescription refills. The app goes a step further to loop in the patient’s family and friends, to improve the patient’s overall health and wellness.

It’s fact that an American dies every 19 minutes because they missed their medication or took it incorrectly. That’s an alarming statistic!

What if the real YOU could be recognized through an archetype? What if that archetype could help you to better understand why you’re attracted towards a particular person or why you want to buy from certain brands. Wouldn’t understanding yourself in that way improve your life dramatically? If you’re indecisive, wouldn’t it be so much easier if you could find out about products, services, publications, and music that’s perfectly suited to your personality type?

The Moments app uses geo-location and push notifications to passively reconnect old photos with locations, helping you and those you care about to relive favorite memories.

We don’t remember days, months, or years. We remember moments. And for when we don’t, there’s now an app for that. Instead of posting, sharing, or checking-in; what if you were reminded? Moments is an app that reminds you of the memories that are most important to you. With the Moments App, when you pass by places that you have been to, Moments sends you a push notification. You can then relive and share your special moment with the friends and family who were with you at the time.

If you think 3D printing is just a fantasy, think again. Learn how 3D printing works; making modern printers able to print 3D models using additive techniques.

3D printing is commonly defined as the means of creating three dimensional solid objects from a digital model. 3D printing applies additive manufacturing techniques. Quite unlike the conventional machining process where material is removed through cutting or carving, the additive manufacturing used in 3D printing sets layers upon layers to create a three dimensional image.

GroupShot is an easy to use group shot app that helps you turn an ordinary group photo into an impressive photograph.

Group photos are among the most taken photographs, followed closely by portraits. If you spend a couple of hours navigating Instagram or Facebook, you will find out that almost one out of every three photos is a group shot. We like to share our memories with others; one likely reason we like having others in their photos.

iOnRoad, an augmented driving app, uses your smartphone’s native technologies to alert you of possible collisions on the road.

One of the most important things to driving a vehicle safely is to understand the traffic itself. If a car is slowing down and you are right behind it, you will have to apply brakes before you collide with it. Similarly, you have to watch out for unwanted lane shifting, since it can result in accidents in heavy traffic.

Although these are basic things about driving, they are still the most important ones. If you can keep safe distance from other traffic and avoid frequent lane changes, you will be safe. However, if you don’t pay attention to the road, you may not have enough time to apply brakes or steer away to avoid a collision. But you won’t have to stay focused if you’ve an app that warns you when you are risking a collision. iOnRoad, an app from an Israel-based company (that I met with on a recent trip to I went on to learn about Technology in Israel), is an award-winning augmented driving app that does just that.
