From Event-Based Rideshare Platforms to Color Blind Photo Editors

By: Jana Pijak - Aug 2, 2016
These August 2016 mobile apps range from event-based rideshare platforms -- like Flok's festival-focused service that connects drivers and passengers traveling to the same concert or sporting event -- to color bring photo editing tools like VSCO's collaborative app update with musician Ta-ku.

In addition to sophisticated photo editing tools and niche rideshare services, other standouts include specialized dating apps that are designed to appeal to those with varying interests. Rivalling the popularity of mainstream dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, examples like DatePlay and PokeMatch -- a romantic app for Pokemon Go fans -- target a demographic of young gamers who are looking to find love.

The month's other notable examples include feminist emoji platforms and anti-bullying apps that aim to crush stereotypes while encouraging equality and acceptance.
