Praise the App Gods. The incredible ass-kicking team behind Miss Representation has given us yet another gem. #NotBuyingIt is an app dedicated to calling out sexist representation, and celebrating media that empowers women and girls. *downloads immediately*
The app reads like an Instagram/Twitter hybrid. As you scroll through your #NotBuyingIt timeline, you read short posts from other righteous feminists calling out some horrible stuff, and you ... Read More

When I babysat my neighbors' kids, I thought it was pretty weird that their youngest daughter spent most of her playtime with the family iPad. Even more disturbing were the games she chose to play, which usually consisted of cartoon girls getting ready for their princess weddings, going to the salon to get their hair and nails done, or to the spa to pop pimples (cue gag). As if these weren't bad enough, a new gang of games has cropped up that take the body ... Read More

Long live the 90's craze! To complement that $60 flannel shirt you just bought from Urban Outfitters, why not dig even deeper into the age of Nirvana and scrunchies with the Tamagotchi App?!
You heard me right, people. Now you can care for your totally useless, pixilated virtual pets on your mobile device of choice. Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. (Love is fun everywhere, duh!) allows you to select from two modes: old school, and a newfangled, fancy-pants mode. Whoever would ... Read More

If you haven't heard of Tinder, a "dating" app for the iPhone, you are probably lying and swiping through your matches right now. It seems like everyone and their grandma (literally...Hi Rhonda, 64) is a part of this bizarre craze. And until recently, I had vowed to be a part of the 1% (mostly just consisting of the Amish) who abstained from checking out dudes on my iPhone.
It wasn't the prospect of "virtual" dating that spooked me. Rather, I firmly believe ... Read More

Experienced online daters know that it can be difficult to filter through the sea of people looking for love online; it often all seems weirdly clinical. A new app called Swoon hopes to provide us ladies with an e-solution to the sometimes-irritating world of online dating. Designed for ladies, by ladies, Swoon's trying to change the way we meet people online.
The app tracks your location using GPS and shows possible male or female matches in your area. Their ... Read More

From games that teach girls how to masturbate, to a period diary that chronicles your day-to-day mood, we love a weird app here at BUST, but this one takes the cake. Or, it WOULD take the cake as long as you're not afraid to be insulted by THE MOST KAWAII GUY IN YOUR SCHOOL OMIGOD LOL.
So there's this new app called Nenshou (FOR GIRLS) in development where a bunch of hot anime bros insult you into losing weight. What I'm getting from this is that it's like, ... Read More

Oh my grash, gals, I must be stuck in the dark ages. Sometimes I forget that they make an app for everything these days, but it never occurred to me that there are apps that would track your period. BUT THERE ARE. THERE TOTALLY ARE.
Truth be told, I'm on the pill, which is supposed to (keyword being "supposed") make it so I know exactly when I'll get it. And even when I wasn't on the pill, I was incredibly sloppy at tracking my period on my Bettie Page ... Read More

Postography has taken the charm of a postcard and combined it with the convenience of a smartphone to make a totally sustainable app to send messages to your friends and family.Here’s how it works: You ...

If you haven’t wanted to hear anything more about Chris Brown since he was convicted of felony assault back in 2009 for brutally beating his then-girlfriend Rihanna, you no longer have to! At least, not via the internet. No more headlines about Chris Brown inexplicably performing multiple times at awards shows, throwing a chair through a window, or getting a disgusting tattoo that looks a little too familiar.
AUX has come out with the aptly (or should we ... Read More

Some of my biggest Facebook pet peeves include, but are not limited to, the following: incessant complaining, unnecessary relationship updates (wait, aren't all relationships inherently complicated? Exactly why is yours so special and beyond my comprehending?), and minute-to-minute pregnancy progress reports. People who are a part of these annoying Facebook phenomena should be banned from the internet. Then again, I'm sure there are a few people on my friends list ... Read More
