If you created your own App, what would it be?
I asked for the name of your App, a description of what it does and your inspiration.
This week, I’m sharing two responses right here – and there’s still time for you to throw your App ideas into the ring, too – just continue reading to find out how to do that.
Okay! Here we go:
Ann Quasman’s App (Ann is the host of WomanTalk Live which airs on WCBM Talkradio 680 in Baltimore)
App Name: The Get Your Ass in Bed App
Description: This App ensures you go to bed at a reasonable hour.
How it works: The App gives you a pulsating electric shock through your phone until, well, you go to bed. Side note: I threw out the idea that the App could shut your phone off, lock it and not turn it back on again until it’s been off for the requisite number of sleep hours, but Ann was having none of that. She felt the electrocution aspect sent a stronger message.
Inspiration: Needing, desperately, to go to bed.
The next contributor shared her idea, but didn’t give the details so I’m filling it in a bit just because I think it’s really interesting.
Carole Cohen McCracken’s App
App Name: The Happ App (no name was given – so, Carole, if you have one, please share!)
Description: This App measures your level of happiness.
How it works: (again, no details were given, so this is my version of Carole’s idea) The App reads your vital statistics, body chemistry and also other current data about where you are, the audio or visuals around you, your answers to a few questions, as well as your answers to questions about what makes you happy that you answered when you first set up the App, to gauge your level of joy, contentment and excitement. It combines these three metrics to come up with your overall Happiness Quotient for the day. I love Carole’s idea and was thinking that if everyone had this App, we could get a nationwide or global Happiness Quotient for the day, and also see which geographic regions have the happiest people at any given moment.
