by Phil Hornshaw

First up today is flayvr, an app that automatically groups photos and videos shot together at the same place and time into albums that can be easily shared. Up next is Spot a Stroke F.A.S.T., an app that can help you identify a stroke victim in the crucial moments after a stroke takes place and get them help. Finally, Emilly in Darkness is a dark action-adventure game that feels a bit like The Legend of Zelda and takes place in a spooky black and white world.

flayvr: photo and video albums (Free)

What’s it about? Instantly create video and photo albums without doing any work, as you shoot them, with the help of flayvr.

What’s cool? Smartphones and other mobile devices have done a great job of making taking photos and videos extra convenient, but you still have to deal with all the organization after the fact. Grouping shots together, tagging them, naming them, pointing out where they happen – it can all be a big pain, especially when you want to share them with others. Flayvr takes the work out of grouping your images together by skipping that process, automatically grouping together shots and videos that were taken at the same time and in the same place into albums that are easily named and shared with others across social networks.

Who’s it for? If you spend a lot of time using your smartphone for video and photos, try flayvr to help keep organized.
