WEIRD SCIENCE: TOP 5 STRANGE IPHONE APPLICATIONS
As of August ’08, over 60 million iPhone applications have been downloaded translating to over $360 million in new revenue for Apple if sales continue at the current pace. With all these iphone deals and new applications, it’s no surprise to encounter the unthinkable within the frenzy. Below is a list of our Daily Marauder Top 5 Strangest Applications.
Love beer? Love popping bubble-wrap? I’m guessing a couple things about you. You live in a fraternity house. . .and you will love this app. The frat dudes’ ultimate dream: a cooler full of beer that never runs out. Simple? Perhaps. But what else are you supposed to do in college?
#4: Hold on!
This is for those of you who are dealing with such immense boredom that you would hold down the ‘hold’ button on your iPhone for as long as humanly possible. Actually, now that I think of it, this would have helped me get through endless Sundays as a child.
Want to annoy your cube-mate even more than the time you did this to his cube (see below)?
Well, there’s an iPhone application for you!! This app throws out a number of incredibly frustrating noises to annoy all of those around you. Some sample sounds include:
- Baby crying
I’m thinking of taking this to the movie theatre and eliciting a bed of sounds during critical moments in the movie. Ohhhhhh yeeah baby.
#2: Lady Biz
Just for the ladies boys! For all the men out there, it will probably come as a complete surprise that, unless it happened within the past week, we don’t really know the date of our last period. Without fail, the gynecologist will ask the question leading to an embarrassing pause where we try to hearken back to earlier times and answer the ‘when’ and ‘the how long’. This app hopes to solve this and other ‘lady business’ problems. I’d be cool with it if it weren’t for the $14.99 price tag. I mean, seriously? I’ll learn to journal or something. . .
Don’t have space in your pocket for a real voodoo doll to torture your boss for making you work weekends? Eureka!!! There’s a solution for you. With iVoodoo, you can save up to 3 voodoo dolls, applying a photo from your photo library to represent the person you are applying pain and/or pleasure to. Creepy? Hell yes.
