Car Locator is a pretty simple application: Users save their location when they park their cars, and the app navigates them back to their cars later. The app was available in free and paid versions with varying feature sets. The paid version originally sold for $1.99, and the price was later increased to $3.99. Kim has done no marketing for the app, but it did win third place in Google'sAndroid Developer Challenge 2.

HootSuite’s mobile arsenal now includes a total of four apps — iPhone and Android apps in both full and free versions. You may recall that HootSuite’s iPhone appretails for $1.99 and is designed to appeal to business Twitter users with a robust functionality that includes unlimited account support and stats and analytics on shared media. Now version 1.2 supports Facebook integration and landscape view. There’s an even a free “Lite” version that maintains a majority of the functionality, but dumps the price tag and sacrifices the click-through date and unlimited account support feature in the process.
Video of the Week
The internet can be a cruel place. Certainly no place for a meek Muppet. Following their largely successful interpretation of "Bohemian Rhapsody," the Muppets Studio channel on Youtube has released another classic. This time around, perpetually victimized Beaker expresses himself in song ("Dust in the Wind" by Kansas) and is mocked by overlay annotations from snarky and downright mean internet users. In typical Beaker fashion, he freaks out and catches fire. Never change, Beaker, never change.
