I've been playing around with 2 new apps recently. The first is Yahoo's new browser "Axis" which displays the results as tiles instead of a page of links. I actually really like it and am quite impressed. I haven't used a yahoo browser in over a decade, the the tile search method really translates well to the mobile platform. Plus, it feels more interactive too. The page load times were sometimes faster than Safari as well.
The second app is Sidecar.me, which I found to a little buggy. However, I think the future of phone calls are where this app is headed. It's like Skype on steroids. From the phone call you can video chat, send pictures, contact info, and location data. There is huge potential for this type of interactive calling. If I want to take a picture of something and call someone to discuss it, I can just use the app, instead of taking a picture and texting it to them. It crashed a few times on me during calls when video chatting. I was using it over wifi at home. But, it's useful to check out and play around with it.
