SOS Stay Safe! – is a discreet, personal safety app for women. It empowers women against abuse and acts of violence. Users can send SOS alerts to their friends and family on sensing danger, simply by shaking their phone. Text and email messages are sent at regular intervals to provide real time GPS tracking from your exact location. The alerts are sent discreetly, without you having to even look at your device.
Spinlister – is a marketplace that lets you find the best bikes to rent online, whether from individuals or existing bike rental shops. Just type where you’d like to ride and Spinlister gives you the best bike rental options for that location. If you’d like to list your bike, snap a few pictures and share them on the site. Available in the US and more than 40 countries.
Slides – allows anyone with a web browser to create and share beautiful presentations for free. A free account gives you 250MB free, but if you upgrade to a Pro account for $7 a month, you can take advantage of many other features such as 2GB storage, offline presentations, exporting to PDF, syncing with Dropbox, custom CSS, extra themes and more.
MockUPhone – helps you to wrap your app screenshots in multi-color/angle smartdevice mockups, and provides better visual context for your app screenshots on your website or in other promotional materials. Choose currently from iOS and Android apps, with more devices apparently on the way.
MoviePile – is a cross-platform, all-in-one video app that combines the best of VLC, iTunes, and iMovie. Play, share, organize and edit all of your videos from one place. MoviePile Downloader also has a Google Chrome extension that allows you to download videos embedded on a webpage to MoviePile (flash, flv, mp4, etc).
