New iPhone Apps: Lift, Gojee And More

Apple announced a new iPhone last week, but the apps of the week stop for nothing. Do you like cheap, healthy food? Elmo tickle you fancy? You've come to the right place.


Gojee: You have like six things in your pantry and you want to make dinner without going to the store. What do you do? Load up this app, enter those items, and it will give you suggestions on what to make. If you're planning ahead, it has heaps of other recipes for whatever it is you're craving. Free.


Fashion Kaleidoscope: Pretty much every day I'll see someone on the street with a pair of shoes or a top that I like. And instead of harassing that stranger on the street, I just wonder forever where they found that piece. This app tries to answer that burning question, pulling together a bunch of looks from blogs and fashion sites and telling you where to buy them for the least money. Free.


Healthy Recipes by Spark Recipes: Dollars to doughnuts you would almost always rather eat, well, a doughnut than nasty kale. But eating healthy doesn't have to be that bad, and with the aid of this app you can find hundreds of thousands of affordable recipes that are also good for you. Free.


Elmo Calls: Kids will literally do anything Elmo says. Seriously, there is research to back it up. If you ever have trouble getting your toddler to do things, just download this app where you can make and receive calls from Elmo, leave voicemails, and play and sing with the fuzzy red guy on FaceTime. Mum says go to bed. Hell no. But if Elmo says it, you'll instantly have a snoring three-year-old on your hands. $0.99.


Lift: The habits that are best for you are the ones that are hardest to keep, and every time you go to the dentist you have to lie that you actually floss daily. Lift wants to help you keep up with those things. Declare a habit you'd like to keep and you can track your progress and share it with your friends. Free.
