5 New Mobile Apps that Have the Industry Buzzing

This month’s app creation spotlight is on five apps that are generating some “buzz” in the industry. One is a game and four leverage “problems” on popular apps providing solutions. We are going to tell you briefly about them and then tell you what it means to you.


KeyFeed works with Instagram to put your Instagram feed in your keyboard. This allows you to share Instagram posts right from your keyboard. All you have to do is tap on a photo and it sends a link to that photo. (Free on iOS)

Gallery Doctor

Gallery Doctor will “cure” everything wrong with your photo gallery. It lets you know when an image on your roll is low-quality or blurry, making it easy for you to “purge” bad photos. ($2.99 on iOS)

Google Translate

Google Translate uses your phone’s camera to both identify and translate words. It just got an update for 20 additional languages. (Free on Android and iOS)

Yahoo Live Text

“Live texting” means being able to text while seeing the other person live on your screen. Great for those whose ironic, sarcastic or downright funny texts are often misunderstood due to the lack of facial expressions to accompany them.

Qbert Rebooted

For fans of this 1980’s arcade game, it doesn’t get any better. Qbert Rebooted has two modes. The classic mode is like the arcade game. The rebooted mode has updated graphics and looks like it belongs in this era.

What it Means to You

We know that two of these are updates or additions from industry giants. But there is still a lot here that should help inspire you. Whether or not you like these apps, a lot of people do. And that is because one of them was a popular game and the other four help users navigate popular apps.

Remember, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. All you have to do is find a way to make popular apps better.
