Found Hound: 

Have you ever lost something? Of course you have, we all have its New York for god sakes.¬† Found Hound is a service, along with an application that attempts to remedy this situation and streamline it for 2014.¬† If you’ve ever had to deal with the mta or NY taxi’s lost and found systems you know that there is room for improvement.¬† Utilizing a user network of thousands Found Hound has eyes on the ground in the form of you and me.¬† Essentially anybody with a smartphone (and a warm heart) who has the app can quickly pull up a message board or feed showing most recent claims of lost items nearest them.¬† For example if I was riding my bike and checked my watch at 96th street and at my destination of 110th discover my watch missing I would quickly pull the app up and enter to the best of my knowledge where there may be a watch.¬† This posts to a dynamic feed that can be viewed by anyone.¬† Once again another question arises one grounded heavily in moral values.¬† What’s stopping these people from stealing the item? Well, nothing is.¬† This works on an honor system, and look at it this way.¬† If you have no idea where your item is, isn’t is practically lost anyways?¬† Moving on, once the person locates the item can coordinate with the owner and subsequently drop it off at one of our hubs around the city.¬† We store these items with a name so we know who it belongs to.

Shoe Diva
Today it‚Äôs a pretty simple thing to go shoe shopping right from a mobile phone. However,¬†finding the exact same shoe, you saw you frenemy wearing, isn‚Äôt as simple. The marketplace¬†has quite a few shoe shopping applications, but none of them solve this problem that many an¬†avid shoe lover has faced. Shoe Diva is a woman‚Äôs shoe app geared towards the true heel¬†enthusiast. One of the best features of the app is the ability to identify a shoe, by simply taking a¬†picture of it. You may never ask your wife about ‚Äúa man on a horse‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúthe local library‚ÄĚ, but
‚ÄúHave you seen my favorite shirt?‚ÄĚ is pretty commonplace.
