Anna Connell joins Vaughn Davis talking apps of the week.

Good idea? Waste of technology? Anna prefers “a little bit of hand dirt”.

The app has the march on Apple which will allow measurement of real world objects through the phone’s camera.

Curiosity app: “learn something new”

The education app that promises everyday you’ll learn something new- an ecosystem which feeds you knowledge on a daily basis.

At midday, Crown brings sixteen personalised matches forward. You have to approve finalist couples until a final match is ‘crowned’.  Vaughn describes it as “Survivor: the dating edition”.
