She’s a wizard when it comes to wireless– Cellular Chloe is here to share the latest and greatest wireless wonders!

It’s hot outside but Cellular Chloe has some COOL new apps to share.  Check out the latest apps she’s showcasing, which are available now!

1. Instructables

It’s instructions on how to build, pretty much anything!  Want to know how to build a mirror ball helmet?  Or a solar charger for your cell phone?  This is the app for you!!  You can revive an old GI Joe walkie talkie using your Bluetooth headset… this app is perfect for the unique DIY-er who’s looking for something past the boring old “how to make a birdhouse.”  Best of all, Instructables is FREE for Android or Apple!

2. Metal Detector

GPS uses the Earth’s magnetic fields to measure things, and this app taps into that to turn your phone into a working metal detector!  If you lose your keys in the couch, you can use your phone to detect them.

3. Melon Meter

Use your phone’s microphone to find out if fruit is ripe or not.  Just tap on the fruit with your phone, and it will sense how ripe it is.  You might get some stares in the grocery store, but it’s totally worth it to find that perfect produce!

4. Last Message

If your phone’s going down and the battery is about to run out, this app will Tweet, text, Facebook or email the person you’re talking to to let them know your battery is going dead.  It’s a nice way to stay courteous and technologically savvy.

5. Heart Rate

The heart rate monitor– put your finger against the camera lens and it will check your heart rate for you.  How cool is that!
