KRLD App Of The Day
TUESDAY (7/29): In A Snap
Target came out with this shopping app that made the news last week. The app is interesting because it lets you look at magazines or catalogs and take pictures of the pictures. You see the right icon, you can see if that item is available at Target. The app recognizes the photos and scopes through the website to see what it costs. The In a Snap app is a new app on iTunes
MONDAY (7/28): Cyber Dust
Mark Cuban invested in this privacy texting app. The app lets you text, knowing that what you say won’t be seen by anyone else. Think of this as a Snapchat for texting. Cyber Dust messages delete within seconds of the receiver reading them. There’s no way to even screen shot them if you wanted to, so you better get the message committed to memory right away. It’s private and completely untraceable.
FRIDAY (7/25): Imojiapp
Emojis are the hottest things you can put into text messages. They just add a little spice to your commuications with those little yellow faces. Now you can your own face in where you’d put one of them. The app is called Imoji. It lets you use your own face, or pretty much anything else you have in the old photo file. Go ahead, take a bunch of selfies showing different emotions. The app lets you insert them into your text messages. Or you can use someone else famous in your messages.
THURSDAY (7/24): Manything home security webcam
You might have a great security system right there on your desk, if you hung on to your old iPhone or iPad. Can’t figure out what to do with it?

WEDNESDAY (7/23): Beauty Mirror
It’s one of the most desired apps, a way to turn your phone into a mirror. This one takes it a little further. You don’t just see yourself as you are. You can see yourself as you COULD be. It actually uses your camera, then you can alter your features in real time. See what you would look like with a little touchup. Fewer wrinkles here, a different nose there. It can even show you what you would look like if you dropped a few pounds here or there. It’s like Photoshopping yourself while you look. A virtual mirror. It’s free on iTunes or you can spend 2 bucks and unlock all the features. Android version should be out in a month. The app is Beauty Mirror.
TUESDAY (7/22): Roadtrippers

This app takes it one step further, with the more offbeat sites that America has to offer. Think Vacation with all the small town tourist attractions. It also can show you places where TV shows or movies are filmed. The app helps you plan out a trip with the side trips you might like.
