3 Cool New Apps For Your Home Screen

Do you refresh your home screen apps? What about folders on the home screen? I don't use folders anymore, that's the digital equivalent of the junk drawer in the kitchen. But I do like to keep things fresh. 

 
My home screen has a few new additions to most used: (And they all have the same theme, location based & contextual aggregation) 
  • Grokr: This is a great solution for pulling in those pieces of content that are relevant to you and also leverages location based info to help provide weather and traffic data. The headlines, trending info and personal trending topics are all pulled in from your connected social accounts. Don't like what you see, change your preferences on your other social networks. I'm seeing content for movies, apps and headlines from my key sources, pulled together elegantly into one spot. And yes, standard social sharing features apply to the content consumed. 
  • Spun: Same deal as above, but focused on content and news targeted around specific locations. (NYC, LA, San Fran, DC, Chicago, Portland, Austin, Boston, Seattle & Philly - for now) Access location specific content in different categories: Top Stories, Arts & Entertainment, Food & Drink & Lifestyle - its like having each cities top newspaper sections in your hand. Plus, it has what is probably the most unique and coolest user interface you've seen yet. It makes full use of the swipe, tap and pull down gestures yet. (And even neat sound effects too)  You'll find yourself exploring new categories in different cities simply due to the UI
  • Prismatic: This is my new favorite. Simple aggregation going on here. Select your top categories for context and let it pull in what you want, plus it has plenty of recommended category and topic suggestions based on your preferences. And again, killer gesture based controls to save, star and share the content.
What on your home screen for the new year? Got anything cool to share as well?
