article imageScentee: New smartphone app sprays scent alerts for FB 'Likes'

If sight and sound aren't enough, a new app that sprays different scents has been developed for those bored with using smartphone apps for just looking at images or listening to sounds.
The Japanese Times have uploaded a video showing a new scent spraying app, Scentee, calling itself a scent attachment for smartphones. Koki Tsubouchi, CEO from the Japanese company Scentee inc., explains that this new app can also be used as just an air-freshener set to spray scent periodically or used as a 'like' alert on Facebook.
Tsubouchi claims Scentee is the world's first product that alerts someone by scent when they receive likes on Facebook and users can send individual smells instead of or with images to friends. Some of the individual scents available are lavender, coffee, mint, rose, curry and cinnamon.
The company's plan is for Scentee to be compatible not only with Facebook but with Twitter, emails and phone calls. And, if interested - Scentee is available on Amazon along with Scentee's previous app, 'Hana Yakiniku' that lets you “taste with your nose.”
The 'Hana Yakiniku' food scent app is said to improve meals and help dieting by releasing delicious aromas of short ribs, beef tongue and buttered potatoes when you’re eating. Scentee claim that the food scents enhance the flavour of any bland food making those who can't afford expensive food items and those dieting feel more satisfied with what they are eating.
