Late Mate Randomizes Your Clock So You’re Never Late

Late Mate is a funny app that aims to stop you from being late for appointments. The idea is very simple: people who are late generally like to set their clocks a few minutes fast in order to trick themselves into leaving a little bit earlier rather than later. This inevitably doesn’t work because they know their clocks are set ahead and end up leaving later anyways. Late Mate prevents you from doing this by randomizing the clock 0 to 10 minutes fast throughout the day. This way, you never know if your clock is perfectly accurate, or 10 minutes fast, meaning you’re either right on time or a little early.

Late Mate is a simple app that makes you wonder whether 10 minutes is at all important anyways. If you’re so concerned with arriving within 10 minutes of when you said you would be somewhere, than you should probably shouldn’t be playing with the settings on the clock.

What do you think of the concept behind this app?

Tungle is an easy way to book meetings with individuals and groups

tungle

Tungle is a great service that isn’t necessarily BlackBerry specific, but is of great use to the type of user who would own a BlackBerry.

Tungle is the easiest way to schedule meetings. The service was born out of the redundancy that occurs every time people send back-and-forth emails saying “what time is good for you?”

Until now, Tungle has been focused on one-on-one and small group meetings, which represent 95% of all meetings. Over the last 9 months, Tungle has been working on the best possible way to set up group meetings. You can now add or remove participants, change the times you’ve proposed, as well as the location and any of the meeting details.

The system of booking meetings is very much like booking between individuals. Users select blocks of time that they’re available, and Tungle schedules the meeting based on everyone’s availability.

Sign up for your free Tungle account and give it a try for yourself.

Are there any features you would like to see in the next version of Tungle? Let us know in the comments.
