iPhone Apps Of The Week: Lift, Gojee, and More

By Leslie Horn on at

I don't know if you guys heard, but Apple announced a new iPhone this week. But the apps of the week stop for nothing. Like cheap healthy food? Like fashion? 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 of what to make. And if you're planning ahead, it has tons 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 in the middle of the sidewalk, 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 donuts you'd almost always rather eat, well, a donut 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. Mom says go to bed. Hell no. But if Elmo says it, you'll instantly have a snoring three-year-old on your hands. £0.69


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
