The International Telecommunications Union claims that 6.1 trillion SMS and text messages will be sent this year. Instead of merely allowing your carrier to make a profit off your texting habits, you could try using an app like GOGII textPlus. With both a paid and ad-supported free version, the application works for iOS and Android smartphone users. The company recently added a people search and users can now opt out of sharing.

Honey, It's Me Virtual Girlfriend

honeyitsme.jpg

Developer Nabix has created an app known as 'Honey, It's Me,' a virtual girlfriend. A Korean model posed for it and dictated over a hundred voice messages such as "good morning" and "time to wake up" to send out to your iPhone. Leader of the Nabix team Kim Yoon-Kak says that it was meant to "console the lonely." Considering that it averaged about 80,000 downloads per day before they started charging $1.99, that's a boatload of lonely. Only in Korean for now, the company has future plans for English, Chinese and Japanese versions.
