A number of iPhone apps have been created during the last few years; most of the apps are average, some are incredibly creative and fun, and there are others that are very useful. But then here are other rather ingenious apps that are not very useful or funny, but a little disturbing. This article lists some of the worst/zaniest iPhone apps around.
iPhone application development has attracted some of the best brains in IT, and there are a number of iPhone apps that perfectly harness the fantastic opportunity offered by the integration of internet and mobile telephony. But then there is the murky world of seriously weird or pure, barking mad iPhone apps that serve some obscure or incredible purpose. You look at the apps, see what they're offering, read again to make sure you've got the right end of the stick, and then you scratch your head in befuddlement.
The following list consists of apps that make one wonder about what the iPhone application development team, or the company that sanctioned the project, were thinking!
iCycle: You feel your girlfriend or your wife is acting a bit weird? Is she getting angry at little things and blowing everything out of proportion? Of course it's got nothing to do with your cigarettes burning holes in the carpet, nor does it have anything to with the fact that your room wrapper-strewn room looks like a post-modern art exhibition. It must be that time of the month. But don't worry, iCycle helps you track her periods, and now you know when to get out of her way.
Hold On: Unless this is a part of some secret government or alien experiment, it doesn't make any sense! It's quite simple: the one who hold on to the button on the screen for the longest time wins. You get a virtual truck if you win. You get the bragging rights too: “I held on the button for 7 hours while I was at work, it was such great fun!” Zero on entertainment, but perhaps it helps people with low determination who can't hold on to one thing for long, who knows?
Nicado: An iPhone app that would let you know the exact position of all your friends and contact would be a blessing, wouldn't it? It'd be like getting your hands on Harry Potter's Marauders Map! But don't get your hopes high, this app doesn't do anything like that. On the contrary, it tracks your location and lets the whole world know where you are. If you have strong narcissistic tendencies, it'd be a great app, but it's seems more like an app that helps stalkers and madmen to track you down!
eShaver: Path breaking iPhone application development lets Phone users shave using their iPhone! It doesn't actually, but it makes varied shaving noises while you rub your face with your iPhone. Seems useless, but I guess it's pretty handy when you are trying to grow a beard but can't get over your shaving addiction.
iVooDoo: This one is possible the creepiest app iPhone application development ever produced! Read what it says about itself: “iVoodoo is the answer to your magical and spiritual needs. In today's society it can be difficult to whip up a voodoo doll and stick it full of pins. Which is a pity because in our modern lives there are a lot of reasons to do just that. That's where iVoodoo comes in. Just launch the application and you'll be manifesting destinies in no time at all.” It's not funny: you can choose between different dolls and stick all kinds of pins in these dolls! Beware of anyone who has downloaded this app on their iPhone!
