Notable New Apps: ‘Five Guys Burgers & Fries’ and ‘Obscura’

by Marianne Schultz

The App Store doesn’t take a break on the weekends and there were a few notable apps that debuted over the past couple of days. First up is an app for the Five Guys Burgers & Fries chain. The company’s self-named app will locate the nearest restaurant for you and even let you place an order for pick-up once you create an account or log in with credentials for an existing account at the chain’s online order site.

I’ve never tried the burgers at Five Guys but I hear they’re pretty good. I’m already a rather avid fan of In-N-Out Burger’s offerings (who also has a free locator app, sans any ordering capabilities, though). If you’re not familiar with either restaurant, check out this article at A Hamburger Today for a pretty comprehensive comparison of the burgers from these two chains plus the Shake Shack.

Also debuting over the weekend was ‘Obscura, developed by Famous Interactive for La Fille D’O, the Belgian lingerie design company. ‘Obscura is a photography app that includes editing features specifically to obscure or hide portions of the captured image, the perfect tools to allow you to take a risqué photo and blur your face to hide your identity before sharing it with others. The app’s description talks about why La Fille D’O created it:

Belgian born lingerie brand La fille d’O is all about skin. The best way to talk about skin is to show it, but that is not alway easy. The boundaries of today’s chastity have never been so obscure. Therefore one is swiftly caught in the web of censorship, dictated by online community’s police. La fille d’O was tired of following those skinless rules. So Belgian based advertising agency Famous created ‘Obscura, macGyver’s paperclip to share your love for the beauty of skin. Go! Create your own doors of perception.

You can share pictures right from the app through Twitter, Tumblr, or Facebook or save them to the Photo Album on your iPhone and share them another way. While we neither encourage nor condone sexting, ‘Obscura at least gives you an easy way to do it and hide your true identity.
