For life’s small problems
▪ RunPee pinpoints the ideal time to dash to the bathroom during just about any movie. You can watch for a particular cue or set your phone to vibrate at the right moment. While you’re in the loo, the app provides a synopsis of what you’re missing.
▪ Pzizz works like a charm on some people in its goal of bringing sleep on quickly for power naps. The trick? It “plays a sequence of whooshy wub-wub noises while a man gently intones platitudes.”
▪ Playground Buddy makes traveling with toddlers easier by maintaining maps of the playgrounds in cities throughout the world. Photos are often included.
▪ Drunk Dial No! should be on every phone, because it lets you decide before a night out which phone contacts you’ll be blocked from texting or calling until you’re likely to be more clearheaded. It’s “the perfect way to prevent rampant self-hatred in the morning.”
