FixMeUp

FixMeUp is a new dating/matchmaking application for Facebook that utilizes the connections and the relationships that you already have to help you make the new ones that you want.

By now, you or someone you know has tried an online dating service – and let’s all be honest, it’s a pretty strange scene. From being propositioned by strangers behind murky images to trying in vain to pull off a three-line text-message pick-up, the online dating market has been in chaos, with more disappointments and failures than successes. Many of these sites boil dating down to a virtual people auction that often leaves users feeling vulnerable, confused, and disconnected – and a little more lonely than when they started.

Fitness for geeks is a new concept; utilizing gaming technology to help geeks stay fit while they play digital games. A health prescription to the tech addicted.

Geeks inevitably play games, not always because they love them (but some do) but because they are victims of circumstance. It’s illogical to sit in an office for hours, doing absolutely nothing but designing or coding so many geeks can’t help but engage themselves with tech games. This is more of a boredom killer than a health prescription, making fitness for geeks an issue.

Bar Call is an app that allows users to save their voice at the bar. Type your requested drink and expand the text so the bartender can visually see it.

Porters, Stouts, or Ales – what are you ordering tonight? If you’re tired of yelling at the top of your lungs at the bar only for the bartender to serve you the total opposite drink than ordered, this app is for you. With Bar Call you can order a drink conveniently by holding up your iPhone to the bartender. The bartender will notice the enlarged text even if you are holding it from across the bar. Impressively enough, Bar Call uses large black font on a white background to make text prominent even in disco lights.
