In the midst of winter it can be a total drag to even think about leaving the house. But whether you’re looking for romance based on your appreciation for Macs, or joining a social network full of people with whom to grab a meal, a few of this week’s top apps might just give you the initiative you need to bundle up and have some fun on the town. And if not, there are a few apps for the hermit in all of us, too.

Cupidtino (Free)

If you’ve ever thought you weren’t finding the right love connection because you don’t share an appreciation for the same operating system as your mate, Cupidtino offers up a unique solution. It’ll help you find your next partner based on their Mac fandom. Users create profiles like any other dating website and look for their next great love with the catch being that all of the users on the app are die-hard Mac fans. You may argue about what to eat for dinner, but you’ll never argue about your favorite OS.

Pin Drop (Free)

Pin Drop is an app for the forgetful person in all of us. The app lets you drop pins all over a map to help you remember whatever you like. If you want to note the location of a hotel, restaurant or parking space you can drop a pin down and label the spot so you’ll know how to get back to it later. Users of Pin Drop can also share the pins they’ve dropped with others, creating a social system of location sharing that might help you discover your next favorite spot.

Shazam Player (Free)

Shazam has upgraded in a big way with Shazam Player. No longer content to just tell you what song you’re listening to, Shazam Player now offers up tour dates for your favorite bands, links to YouTube videos of songs you’re listening to and streaming lyrics for over 30,000 songs and counting. Users can also purchase songs from the iTunes store right from the app. iTunes playlists are also fully accessible right from the Shazam Player app, and users can create new playlists within the app as well.

Aurasma Lite (Free)

Imagine holding your iPhone in front of a movie poster and watching a trailer for that film pop up instantly to watch; or checking out a magazine article about a car, pointing your iPhone at the article and seeing a video of the car driving. That’s Aurasma Lite in a nutshell. Essentially, the app bridges different forms of media together using elements of augmented reality. Users can also create personalized channels to show some of their favorite media to their friends.

Grubwithus (Free)

If you’re a busy guy or gal on-the-go in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, D.C., Boston or Seattle but you still like to grab a nice sit-down meal from time to time, Grubwithus is a prime way to avoid dining out alone. Grubwithus is a social network for people who want to find other foodies with whom to eat. Users can reserve meals, browse profiles to see who they might like to eat with, and even chat before and after meals with the people that they meet.
