An idea for a new app

Shazam is an app I use a lot — you hold your phone up to a music source and it will listen and tell you what the song is.

How about a Shazam-like app for odors? This article got me thinking that it would be great for finding out what that delicious food smell is coming from your neighbor’s window, or the type of coffee being brewed, or the name of the perfume worn by the woman next to you on the train.

This Language Names Odors As Precisely As English Speakers Name Color

Okay, maybe the Odor App idea is a little silly. But being able to describe colors and odors and music or sound is a great way to use “like” –> it looks like, it smells like, it sounds like …

Try using “like” in this way in your portfolio today.
