SlapShot: Straight out of Ottawa, SlapShot allows the user to customize the front of a hockey puck with their favorite team’s logo (top right corner), hashtag (bottom right corner), food ( lower left corner) and player number (upper left corner). You can then “shoot” the puck at up to five friends per day, who can choose to send it back (swipe up), pass it to someone else (swipe down), block the shot (swipe left) or let the shooter know they’ve “scored” (swipe right). In a development no one could have predicted, the platform is quickly becoming more popular with singles than hockey fans.
sputter: It’s like Twitter, but for people who are angry about certain things. (Faced with a potential lawsuit from Twitter for intellectual property infringement.)
YouSnooze: It’s like Twitch, but with videos of people watching C-SPAN.
Hats off to my wife and kids, who spotted quite a few before me.
