Are you tired of getting stuck on a certain question? Well according to TechCrunch new app called ChoiceMap helps you overcome difficult problems by breaking them down step by step.
Making complicated decisions is an emotionally fraught process and (if you are like me) the whole thing can leave you feeling paralyzed. ChoiceMap is a new free iPhone app that helps you break down complex dilemmas into a list of priorities, rate them by how they will affect your life, and then uses an algorithm to score decisions. You can use it for everything from figuring out the future of your relationship to just deciding what to eat for dinner.
It might seem a bit strange to use your iPhone to make the kind of decisions you’d usually talk over with a friend or hash out in your head (or a journal), but there are already several apps out there intended to help you make sense of your feelings. For example, TechCrunch’s Sarah Perez recently profiled Feels, which she described as “the pro/con list for the smartphone, emoticon-favoring generation.”
Both apps can help turn a mass of frazzled thoughts into cool, rational decisions, but I don’t think the two necessarily need to be seen as competitors. We all process things in different ways. For some people, seeing the emoticons Feels produces is helpful. For others, the bar graphs and percentages ChoiceMap uses to rank and rate your options are the way to go. Of course, the numbers only mean what you want them to mean, but looking at them gave me a much-needed moment of clarity on some issues that have been causing me a lot of anxiety.

Jelly app is for taking a picture of anything and asking your friends on Facebook and twitter what it is exactly. For example, a picture of Mark Zuckerberg texting and driving on a $40,000 Black Volkswagen GTI went viral online a few days ago. I myself downloaded the new app on iTunes and I’m very impressed of how it is used. However, will it become the next billion dollar app like Twitter?
Here are three ideas that I came up with that will benefit the new app:
1.) Add your friends through contacts:
As of right now you can only receive conversations for those that have the Jelly App already on twitter and Facebook. My suggestion is to allow users to invite their friends through contacts that may not even have a Facebook or a twitter account, but has the Jelly app. Popular apps like Snapchat, allows its users to invite friends that already have the app through their contacts and you can invite those who don’t have the jelly app at all through via SMS.
2.) upload YouTube videos:
For users that have the Jelly app do you realize that you can also upload images from Google? Well what if the Jelly was capable of uploading YouTube clips to your account and ask questions based on the video you have chosen cool right? For example, you upload a YouTube short movie clip of The Great Gatsby and ask your friends how was the movie or who wants to see it with me.
3.) Promoting questions:
Promoting users messages would be similar to twitter, a billion dollar company that allows users to post their tweets on T.V. such as ESPN, CBS, NBC, and other popular media channels. This indeed, will to be the turning point to Jelly app if they decide to take that approach.
In a few year, their would be no surprise if the Jelly app becomes a billion dollar company soon.

With Twitter making headline news after its IPO. Co founder Biz stone creates a new app called Jelly.
What is Jelly you ask?
Jelly is a new way to search with pictures and people from your social networks. It’s also people helping each other, something that’s both meaningful and fun.
– Ask questions with images to deepen the context. Crop, re frame, zoom, and draw on your images to get more specific.
– Jelly works with your existing social networks. In addition to asking, you may find yourself answering questions as well.
– Questions can be forwarded outside the app so your friends who don’t have Jelly can still help. It feels good to help
Its a very fun app that will be available on iPhone and Android to get now!
