MyCampusTutors provides a fully interactive online tutoring solution, built by moms for moms! They take pride in delivering traditional tutoring with innovative and cost-effective online learning. Their goal is to improve confidence resulting in better grades and an overall better school experience. What I really like about their solution is that sessions can be recorded and played back at a later date. You can’t do that with your traditional, old school tutors.
ServaBid is an innovative way to get things done in virtually any area. Consumers can create video “Tasks” describing what they want done, and service providers bid on completing these tasks directly through the app. Consumers receive multiple competing bids, while service providers grow their business using a mobile device. Have you ever wondered how you are going to describe the job you need done, such as “organize my garage.” The thing I like about ServaBid is that you can just video all the junk in your garage to give the bidder a better idea of what you need done.
Weaver is a simple yet beautifully illustrative way for you to express yourself, aided by the creators who inspire you. Discover new artists, have stickers match the words you type, and share your visual stories with your friends over Twitter and Facebook. No amount of description here can match the demo you will see of the Weaver application. I found it incredibly compelling, and when I saw a demo, I had a feeling that I was taking a look at “the next big thing.”
