This month was crazy in the app world.
Foursquare, the superpopular location-based mobile app, announced that it was splitting its business into two separate mobile products.
And the popular game Dots is getting a sequel. Finally!
The App Store updates with new additions all the time, but these are the 10 apps that people are talking about this month.
Apple confirmed this week that it was buying Beats Music in a $3 billion deal.
In an internal memo to employees, Tim Cook wrote that, “Beats Music was built with deep respect for both artists and fans. We think it’s the first subscription service to really get it right.”
Although that remains to be seen (Beats Music has only 111,000 subscribers), Beats updated its iPhone app, and dropped its monthly subscription price from $120 to $99.
Price: Free to download; $10 per month/$99 per year subscription fee
Coffee Meets Bagel
Coffee Meets Bagel has been around for a couple years, but it was recently updated with a new interface and in-app chat capabilities.
It presents you with one potential date at noon every day. The matches aren’t random — potential mates are friends of friends — and then you like or pass the person. If the person likes you back, you score some chat time in a private chatroom.
The company recently received $2.8 million in funding.
Finding an affordable place to live in San Francisco might be hard, but finding a parking spot might arguably be worse.
That’s where Monkey Parking comes in. You can bid on spots that are going to open up where you want to park. And, you can put your parking spot up for auction and watch as the bids start coming in.
Currently the app is only available in San Francisco and Rome (as in Italy — the app’s founders are Italian), but it’s possible that if it catches on, it’ll roll out to other cities.
