    Recently launched by the Agriculture Department, Ask Karen is a perfect example of how to make a fun application that provides a lot of great information. You can ask Karen, the friendly food safety icon expert, all sorts of questions such as “How long can food last in a power failure,” or “How can I tell if a restaurant has adequately cooked my fish?” or even “How can you tell which cantaloupes are fresh in the store?” and the app will return helpful information.

  7. My TSA Application

    Science.gov Application

    Billed as a tool to help kids with homework, it’s actually a surprisingly powerful search engine that checks science data from 12 federal agencies going back to 1990.

  13. WISER

    Not many apps can actually save a life, but the National Institutes of Health’s Wireless Information For Emergency Responders, or WISER, could do just that, and may have already done so since it was released last year.
