The 13 best new software apps from Demo

Services designed to make your life easier


We've rounded up  the 13 hottest new products from this year's DEMO conference - known as the launchpad for emerging technology.

Waze

Waze combines the open-source editing capabilities of Wikipedia with the real-time immediacy of Twitter to provide users with fast-breaking updates on traffic conditions.

Essentially it works like this: if you're stuck in a traffic jam somewhere, you send an update explaining your location and the density of the current traffic.

This technique can also be used to flag areas that have speeding cameras or areas that are well-known police speed traps. This mobile app is available on Android phones, the iPhone, RIM devices and Windows Mobile devices.

Micello

We all love Google maps for helping us get from one place to another on the road. But what happens when we're inside a large building such as a stadium and we're looking for a particular restaurant or souvenir shop?

That's where Micello comes in. This application supports user-generated maps of large public places that will eventually help you find a public restroom no matter where you are.
