Over New Year’s weekend a bunch of heavy app users I was with sat down to list apps they found interesting / useful this past year. Here’s my list:

  1. f.lux – will save your eyes and help you sleep better. My top app of the year
  2. Moves – slick new step counter that tracks how much you move
  3. Lockitron – iPhone-controlled doorlock
  4. Areaware alarm clock – app+stand that turns your iPhone into an alarm clock that isn’t too bright at night
  5. AR Drone 2.0 – app+drone, fly a programmable quadcopter from your phone (so fun I co-organized a quadcopter programming contest)
  6. Carat – monitors your iPhone battery usage & resource consumption
  7. Findery – stories like nowhere else about familiar & strange places
  8. GmailMeter – analytics on your Gmail use
  9. Postmates – get anything delivered to you in San Francisco in under 1h
  10. 1Password – manage all your passwords securely in one place
  11. Fing – scans all IP addresses on your network
  12. Dropcam – app+camera, simple home security camera
  13. Me Today – private photo sharing for families & close friends (built by our team, email me for a beta invite)
