The cog at the centre of it all: a look at the Newshub app

Sometimes I wonder why we download mobile news apps and allow oft depressing and sensationalist headlines to be zapped to our phones to give us bursts of misery and existentialist angst throughout the day. But we’re suckers for it, we want to know what’s going on when it’s going on, and the major news outlets know this (they also know our phones are practically glued to our hands or pocket insides). Which is why MediaWorks has wasted no time in launching a dedicated Newshub app with all the bells and whistles, which, 18 hours after it launched became the most popular app downloaded from the App Store.

Some very particular phones for your very particular needs

In some ways, smartphones are a strange product. We all use them differently, and have different expectations as to their performance, yet most of us buy one of just a handful of models that all do pretty much exactly the same thing. But what if you want something different? What if you want something distinctly you? Well, here are some phones for particular people that fulfill a particular need.

Who you gonna call? Kiwi horror movie creates ghost spotting app

We're quite partial to the Monster Detector app here at StopPress, which lets kids (and maybe a few adults) rest easy after a quick scan of the bedroom. And to promote the Halloween launch of indie New Zealand film The Deadroom, Centron Pictures and Stun have employed some similar technology, creating a 'paranormal investigation' app that shows ghostly activity in your photos.

Postr teams up with Skinny Mobile, trades data and minutes for ad endurance

Opt-in ad serving platform Postr has teamed up Skinny Mobile to create a new android app called Skinny Collect, which allows Skinny customers to earn free data or minutes in return for allowing ads on their lock screen. It’s taken off pretty well and in the first fifteen minutes after launching it had a download per second. We spoke to Postr CEO Milan Reinartz to find out more on the new app and Postr's partnership with Skinny.

Hallertau's real-world hospitality

That shiny rectangle in your pocket is an amazing piece of technology. But there's a growing sense that we're becoming far too attached to our phones, to the point where we seem to be happy to sacrifice real human interaction for a poke, a scroll and a quick game of information pokies. And Hallertau Brewery in Riverhead has taken a stand against the use of these magical cubes of distraction at its establishment and is aiming to promote actual conversation.

First DJs, now listeners: under-the-radar Kiwi tech success story Serato aims for the masses with music app Pyro

For the last 16 years, Serato has been at the forefront of DJ culture and technology. Its ground breaking Pitch ‘n Time time-stretching algorithm and flagship audio mixing software product Serato DJ are industry standards. Kanye West rapped about them on one of his tracks. Eminem did the same. And now it's releasing its first mass-consumer app, Serato Pyro, a music player that beat-matches and mixes song playlists. Chief executive AJ Bertanshaw explains the company's evolution—and its Kiwi approach to marketing.

Holding a smile

Seeing someone smile at you is one of life's great pleasures. And those who can see take that completely for granted. But Listerine and JWT London wanted to find a way to give those who can't see warm fuzzies (and sell more mouthwash), so it created an app that plays a sound or vibrates when it detects a smile.

Will work for food

Humans regularly pay for having their photo taken (when it's horrible and it gets posted on social media, or when looking back and wondering why you ever thought that hairstyle was a good choice). But, following on from a tease at its I/0 event, Google decided to let people pay with a photo to promote the enhanced search functionality of its upgraded Photos app.

Parkable enters the space race, looks to solve a perennial urban problem

Since the heady days of 2013, when Uber and Airbnb started blossoming (or spreading like weeds) around the globe and raising millions of dollars in funding, ambitious app designers have been looking for problems that could be solved by combining smartphones and financial incentives. And a new app called Parkable hopes to match those with space to those with a car in need of some.
