When the iPhone first launched, it gave us a whole new way to make phone calls and connect with people. But in the years since its launch, the Phone and Contact apps haven't changed a whole lot. Humin is out to fix this. By acting as a replacement for both apps, it gives you the ability to search your contacts on more natural terms — say, when/where you met them, where they live/work, or what they do, all by leaning on information from Facebook, LinkedIn, and even Gmail. It also gives you reminders on who you're scheduled to meet with, connects you with friends when you're traveling, and lets you know when friends are visiting nearby. Put simply, it's a smarter phone.
Instant gratification — that's what a big part of the mobile experience is all about. Instant access to the Internet. Instant access to your friends. Etc. Which is what makes 1-Hour Photo so novel. This free app lets you shoot photos as soon as you open it, but with one big caveat — you can't see the results for an hour, as the app forces you to stay in the moment and applies a smooth black and white film emulation. It might not make sense, but it's also free, so you have little excuse to not give it a try.
