Must-Use Apps & Gadgets of 2013

PHILADELPHIA -

How would you like to see as many movies in theaters as you want for about a dollar per day?

Well, it is possible.

Tech expert Stephanie Humphrey tells of a website that does just that, as well as some of the other hottest apps of 2013:

The site "moviepass.com" is called "Netflix for moviegoers." With this, you can pick where you want to go and pay a monthly subscription fee from $25 to $40 to see one movie per day.

According to the company Globaltrac, 26 million pieces of luggage get lost every year. Globaltrac has now designed a gadget called Trakdot, which uses GSM technology to locate your luggage, so you never lose track of it again.

The battery-powered device sits in your bag and will send you a text message to let you know where your luggage ended up.

The Foap app for iPhone gives you the chance to make money from the pictures you take every day. By uploading your photos to the Foap Market, you allow others to see and purchase your images. You can even make commission off of friends' photos that you have invited to the site.
