The holidays may have come and gone, but now we prepare to step into a new year with some new apps, forever venturing forth. One of those new apps is a Vudu Movies and TV app, letting you stream from the Vudu service. We’ve also got fancy new keyboards and slick alarm clocks, a parking spot finder for The Windy City, and an innovative but somewhat incomplete photo sharing app. Let’s do this.
Flock is an interesting new app that gets an A+ for effort and innovation, but a C- or so in execution. Essentially, it’s a photo sharing app that seeks to separate itself from Facebook and the rest, making it easier for you to find photos based on time and location taken rather than sift through a dozen albums online. Using facial recognition, it auto-tags your friends and creates albums for you with no real input. You don’t even have to open the app to use it. Unfortunately, the software needs some work, with a lot of bugs and wonky features, but definitely keep your eye on this one.
