There’s an untapped market for useful apps that don't exist, and on this list is basically an imaginary smartphone app wishlist. With all of the Android and iPhone apps out there these days, one might think we’ve reached full appacity. But for every step counter or news app, there should be something that helps you remember where you parked your car or an app that helps you figure out what people are talking about at parties. It’s not that hard, app scientists, so get on it! Check out these non-existent apps and then let us know about apps you wish existed.
It may not seem like it, but the things you wish there was an app for are deeply personal. If you spend a lot of time screwing around on your phone, you might want something that keeps you from procrastinating. Or if you’re constantly being followed by menacing owls you might want something that acts as an owl deterrent. Think about the kind of apps that would make your life easier and throw them on the list. Or if you’ve got your hands on app-making technology, you could start working on these and become the next Silicon Valley bajillionaire.Vote up the imaginary apps you wish you could download, and if there’s an app you wish existed, feel free to add it to the list.
