From ATM-Replacing Apps to Afterlife Selfie Platforms

 - Apr 2, 2017
These April 2017 mobile apps range from shared video viewing platforms to afterlife selfie apps that are centered around a bizarre yet intriguing business model. ELROIS Inc's 'With Me' app is one of the month's most notable and controversial, digitally recreating users' deceased relatives, friends or even celebrities who have passed away. The platform works by creating an AI avatar of the deceased person in question and lets users chat or take photos with the virtual person.

The month's most memorable lifestyle apps target niche interests and include vegan dating apps that connect like-minded singles along with user-scoring dating platforms that score male users according to authenticity and a "genuine personality" factor.

App-connected baby monitors, fitness communication apps and GPS adventure games round off this list of April 2017 mobile apps and target tech fans of different age ranges.
