Take a selfie without hands? Connect with your favorite Chelsea footballers? Cope with an overflowing email inbox? Israeli app makers have you covered.

In honor of Israel Mobile Week – June 8-12, 2015 — ISRAEL21c brings you a dozen more made-in-Israel apps that could make your life healthier, more fun, and more efficient.

1. uHealth - is a focus- and attention-building iOS app from the folks at Umoove. It relies on made-in-Israel eye-tracking technology to guide children or adults through games designed to train them gradually to ignore distractions, focus and be more attentive. Points are earned as concentration improves and you advance to more challenging levels.

2. Safie - allows parents to keep track of, and automatically locate, their children through their phone. The app also notifies parents in case of emergency via a panic button. Each child can be tracked by as many as five adults, and the app can be installed on any smartphone (both parents and children need to install Safie for the app to be operative). Parents can receive updates on the whereabouts of their children every few minutes, every hour or once a day.

3. Fansino - an app to connect fans and performance artists, won App of the Year at the 2015 Mobile World Congress. Fansino enables artists to manage and connect with their fan base from one place, find out who’s listening, track streaming services and online presence, and keep tabs on social-media mentions. It allows fans to gain rank and get rewards, find other fans of the same artists, and follow favorites through one feed. Read More
