News, Scheduling, and Coffee Apps: A Great Trio

If a recent press release from Gartner predicting apps will generate $77 billion in revenue by 2017 is accurate, it’s no wonder multiple new apps hit the consumer market nearly every day.  There’s money to be made in the app business.

The following two recently released apps will definitely interest you if you are a news or productivity junkie, and the expected release of a new feature on a coffee store app may help you get your morning cup of java quicker.  Behold:

  • Trove is a free iOS app designed to bring you the latest and best news stories based on your interests. The apps “algorithm aggregates news from across the web to deliver relevant stories” and lets you pick the ones of most interest to you.
  • Foogi is a free Android scheduling app that lets you easily set up meetings with friends, family, or colleagues who have Foogi installed on their device. Say goodbye to the emails and phone calls you may currently rely upon and let Foogi automatically detect your contacts availability and send that time to your calendar app so you can easily schedule the event. If your contacts don’t have the app you simply select free time slots on their calendar and send the proposed times to them via email.
  • And not to be missed, Starbucks, according to a recent Business Insider article hopes  to add a feature to its app allowing you to send an order via your smartphone to the closest store and have it ready for pick-up when you arrive.
