We found BeamIt, Inside, makeup Genius, Outsider & Wikipedia for Android, The Weather Channel's new app for runners and the latest version of Inside's news app.


Cooliris launched BeamIt, a new photo-messaging app, this week. The app allows users to quickly send hundreds of photos at once at full resolution to as many people as they want. While the messages don't "disappear," users can “unsend” a message at any time to delete it forever. BeamIt also automatically backs up all of a user's images, and has an offline mode that saves messages for later when he or she gets back online. BeamIt is available for iOS.

MakeUp Genius

L’Oreal’s Makeup Genius is essentially a virtual mirror that lets users “try out” different makeup looks and styles without ever having to touching their face. Users must scan their face with their device’s front-facing camera, and then choose the products they want to try on — either by selecting them individually based on category, or by trying a preset “look.” As users choose products, Makeup Genius overlays them onto their face. Users can then add or remove items until they achieve the look they want. The app is available for iOS.

The latest app from The Weather Channel, OutSider is a run-tracking app that incorporates the company’s extensive weather data to monitor conditions, such as air quality, humidity, wind and temperature to tell users when running conditions are ideal. OutSider has the same beautiful design as The Weather Channel’s flagship forecasting app, and can also integrate data from a user's heart-rate monitor or the iPhone 5s’ M7 coprocessor to beef up his or her stats. OutSider is available for iOS.
