Kids Say the Darndest Things. Quoties is an app for parents to help remember all the crazy things that kids say.

Quoties allows you to save a quote quickly and easily right on your phone. Its easy to have multiple children and make sure quotes are attributed to the right child. Searching is easy with full quote text support. You can easily sort them by date and filter by child.

Quoties also supports native sharing functionality making it super easy to share with all your favorite social apps from Twitter to iMessage.


Octopodium is a Github stats app that surfaces all sorts of cool metadata on Github.

Octopodium will show top users for each language based on stars. You can easily filter by country or city as well to get a local look. Its quite fun to check out your own city to see who’s the top. You can also use Octopodium to see trending repositories filtered by language and timeframe. Octopodium also makes it easy to search developers to see details about them such as repos, languages, stars, etc.

Perhaps coolest of all, Octopodium is an open source app. So you can take a peek to see how its built and help improve it on its official repository.

It’s not a popularity contest or even a favorite picking contest — I just try to share a snapshot of the community through your submissions. Please take a moment and try these other fantastic apps from readers like you.
