The best way to not get a DUI is to not drink and drive. But, sometimes you don't have one or you're not sure if you are safe to drive. That's where this app comes in. It uses a similar field sobriety test to those used by police. It calculates your ability to count backwards from 15 in a set amount of time. If you can do it, you're good to go. If you pause, take too long, skip numbers or give up, the app says you are not safe to get behind the wheel. Obviously, this app is not idiot proof and should be used for entertainment purposes only.

DietBetter.com and the companion app Diet Bet (iTunes) let you bet on yourself to lose weight!  The games are a $25 buy-in.  Your options are:  "Lose 4% in 4 Weeks" or "Lose 10% in 6 Months".  At the end of the game, the pot is split between those who hit their goal weight.  To keep it fair and for verification, you submit a full-body selfie and a picture of your weight on the scale...before and after.  *The pictures are submitted to a referee only and are not published.

Tied in with 911, this app helps first responders in cardiac emergency situations.  After the dispatchers sends an ambulance to the scene, an alert is sent to app users who are in the immediate area.  The hope is that someone 50 feet away could perform CPR and potentially save a life in the time it takes an ambulance to arrive.  *The alerts are only sent for victims in a public place like a park or a mall.  After downloading the app, select Cleveland EMS and Westshore Fire Departments in the settings.  Pulse Point currently works in the cities of Cleveland, Westlake, Bay Village, Rocky River, Fairview Park and North Ridgeville.  Free in GooglePlay and iTunes
