BrewGene: A Search Engine for Beers

For the craft beer connoisseur, it seems there’s always something new on the shelf to try out. The problem is, if you want to try more beers but are also trying to stay within a budget, it can be frustrating to pick out ones that you don’t end up liking. Thankfully, a new iPhone app®, BrewGene®, can help you avoid picking “lesser” beers. The app also provides users with a way to remember which beers you tried and liked!

The idea was conceived in 2008, when one of the app’s developers realized during beer browsing that he couldn’t remember which ones he’d already tried and liked. Another developer had a similar idea, expressing that he wanted a way to know which beers he would probably like, based on his previous preferences.

iPhone App Scans Groceries, Makes Checkout Faster

Scan It! App

If you’ve ever been frustrated waiting in a long grocery line, check out the app for iPhone called Scan It!. Scan It! was created by Modiv Media and works at Stop & Shop, which currently operates more than 375 supermarkets in the eastern United States.

The app lets customers scan items while they show, presents them with personalized offers and savings as they go, and speeds up the checkout process.  The app relies heavily on loyalty-card numbers – users install the app, load in their loyalty card by taking a picture of its bar code, then taking their phone with them to the store.

The new app is simple. Users dictate in any location and then upload files to a web server using 3G or WIFI connections. Transcriptionists then receive the recorded files via email or network file and transcribe the notes as necessary.

“This new app provides users with the ability to dictate from any environment and send the recording to a transcriptionist without having to carry multiple devices - making everyone's life simpler,” said Thomas Brauner, Senior Director and Category Leader at Philips Speech Processing.

Hot Russian Spy, Anna Chapman, Gets Her Own iPhone App

Sure, Anna Chapman was a spy out to uncover our country’s most sensitive secrets. But does that mean Americans shouldn’t buy an iPhone app created in her honor? According to Zeda, creators of the newly-released “Poker With Anna Chapman,” the answer is nyet.

For $1.99, players can “feel the ultimate drive of competing with a truly worthy opponent - Anna Chapman, the real-life Russian femme fatale.” The app offers Texas Hold’em and 5 Card Draw and the “luckiest players” will have a chance to befriend the sexy spy on Facebook and read a personal blog she created especially for the app. “Poker With Anna Chapman” also features an extensive collection of Anna’s photos which show her doing such exciting things as shopping, going to parties, and flaunting posh outfits. Follow the link to purchase Anna Chapman's poker app.

I can’t decide if this app is tasteless (after all, she’s a SPY who is almost certainly profiting from this game) or harmless fun. What do you think?

It's simple. Just take a photo of yourself, use the app's effect to make your eyes look vampire-y (topaz, crimson, or black), and then add fangs and a little "sparkle" for that Edward Cullen, definitely not gay, look. You can even share the pic via Facebook or Twitter. All this for only 0.99. Fabulous!

PS: The developers of I Am Vampire want you to know that you shouldn't consume blood after using this app.

Date Check iPhone App Lets Women Stalk You

Some may call them smart, others may call them crazy, but some ladies out there won't date a guy unless they've conducted a thorough background check on him. This was virtually impossible before the invention of the Internet, but thanks to the wonders of modern technology viligant women can "investigate" dates from the comfort and convenience of their iPhone.

The Date Check iPhone app is targeted towards women, but either sex can technically use it. A user simply needs a potential date's name, email address, and phone number and Date Check will confirm the person's address, report on his criminal history, pull up a map of his neighborhood, determine who he lives with, share his educational history, and find any active social networking accounts. That's a bit creepy. Oh, and girls can rate their experience with you and Date Check will "log it for future use." Whatever that means.

The app is free so who knows how accurate or extensive the information it finds really is, but Date Check is bound to be a great tool for any competent stalker.

Need Help Cheating? There's an App for That!

Philanderers take note! There is a new app in town that will make it easier for you to continue with your no good, cheating ways: TigerText.

Named after the now infamous Tiger Woods, TigerText is an iPhone app that automatically deletes text messages from a sender’s phone, a recipient’s phone, and the server of a service provider. If you recall, Tiger’s wife Elin supposedly busted her husband after spotting incriminating messages on his cell phone.

One big perk to TigerText is that it allows users to control the lifespan of a message. Cautious/paranoid types can set their message to delete on read, meaning the message will self-destruct 60 seconds after the receiver opens it, or they may select a more lenient timeframe, say a couple of hours or so. Once TigerText deletes a message, it’s gone forever. Only a trail of tiger paw prints will remain (and even that can be deleted with the “delete history” setting). The only drawback is that both parties must have TigerText installed on their phones so you’re out of luck if your “special friend” doesn’t own an iPhone.

TigerText is the perfect app for cheaters, sexters, shady politicians, drug dealers, and anyone else who has something to hide. Interested? Click here for more information.

Have2P: An App for People Who Really Need to Go

Keeping with the bodily waste app theme, today’s weird iPhone app focuses on number 1 rather than number 2 (though the app can technically be used for both).

Introducing Have 2P, a free app that allows users to:


•    Find restrooms in the local area and view their location on a map
•    Read restroom reviews to determine whether or not a restroom is clean, if a changing table is available, etc.
•    Add and review new restrooms to share with others
•    Save time by avoiding businesses with no public restrooms

Have2App even has a so-called “urgency detector” that can sense when a user is shaking and prompt a new restroom search. Though the app may seem a little silly, it also sounds kind of useful. I wouldn’t mind having it at a street festival or while sightseeing in an unfamiliar city. Then again, I’m a girl and everyone knows women have to pee around 800 times a day (or so men claim). 

Visit Have2p.com to download the app.

iPoo: A Social Community for People Taking a Dump

Here at LotsOLoot, we’ve seen some pretty strange iPhone apps, but iPoo might just be the strangest yet. 

Released in early December, iPoo is an online community dedicated to connecting poopers everywhere. With iPoo, users can chat with fellow defecators, draw graffiti on a virtual wall, view a map pinpointing the location of other poopers, learn useless trivia, browse real-time pooping stats, share random thoughts, and more! Sorry, no poo photos allowed. Apple banned it. However, the iPoo website reports that they are working on alternative methods for users to post and draw on their photos. Can’t wait!
