For all of the social media that we engage in daily, there is very little that tailors directly to families while allowing the privacy we need in a potentially dangerous online environment.  Along with the dangers that can come with browsing the Internet, it can be challenging to keep family coordinated and emotionally connected.  Squarehub is an app that, in its developers’ words, is the private social network designed exclusively for your family. The development of technology brings with it unique new problems as well as solutions, and Squarehub looks to solve these problems.  While social media offers us myriad new ways to branch out and connect to people we may not otherwise meet, the lack of privacy can become increasingly worrisome.

Ravenna is Admissions Made Fast and Simple

As one of the most important elements of working toward improving our future, some organizations are putting a great deal of effort into implementing technological advancements in education.  While technology has improved the admissions process by making it faster, easier and more efficient to conduct online, we have taken very few steps beyond the basics.  Ravenna’s developers claim that their app is transforming K-12 admissions for private schools by implementing a fully paperless process for every step from the very first inquiry to the final decision.   Parents looking for private, higher quality schooling for their children and administrators of these schools often face the most difficulty in the process.  This is due to higher standards and the submission of many more applications than a school is able to accept.  A great deal of review also needs to go into every one.  Ravenna looks to address this issue in a number of ways in order to improve the admissions process altogether.

Gibberin Optimizes Spoken Messaging

While one of the most applied uses of technology involves how we communicate, we can still make many more applications to increase the overall efficiency of its application.  Gibberin’s designers created it based on the principle that communicating vocally is faster, easier and more accurate than using the text-based services that are so common.  They believe, in their words, that it is time to shift away from existing text based messaging back to our natural form of communication, our voice.  Gibberin delivers your message in its original spoken form without involving the process of transcribing text.  Recipients of your messages hear the emotion, inflection, pace and other natural queues that are important to meaningful communication and do not carry over in text.

Parkio Makes Parking Intelligent

As far as we have come technologically, there are some aspects of everyday life in which we could still put the progress we have made to more thorough use.  One of these is public parking, particularly as it relates to those who operate civic or workplace parking facilities. Parkio’s developers saw a need to apply better solutions to maximizing parking space while allowing more income for those who own and control it, creating their app to fix a few difficulties that technology could serve to improve. Firstly, space is a valuable resource because of its scarcity, particularly in certain urban areas, and few organizations get any real value from owning and operating this space.  Secondly, many companies, especially retailers, are spending large sums of money for parking, increasing the costs of the goods they sell in order to make up for it.  Finally, transportation initiatives being implemented focus on moving vehicles rather than making the best use out of the limited space available.
