With over 65,000 apps now in the App Store for iPhone users, some are great, many not, and more than a few are just plain dumb. The real dumbest? FatBurner2k:
…it can “help your body consume fat molecules using disharmonic, molecule to molecule, physical oscillations.” Translation: It vibrates on your tummy.
Useful, not dumb is iNap@Work:
This app promises to generate random office sounds—mouse clicks, keyboard taps, pencil sharpeners, coughs, and rustling paper—to give power-nappers some cover. Little sliders are supposed to control your “productivity” level and the frequency of each sound.
The award for exploitation of the most desperate of people should go to Hair Clinic: For Man or Woman:
Promises to give you “healthy and abundant” hair by generating “various types of inaudible high and low frequencies to promote blood circulation around hair roots and under the head skin.”
The spirit of capitalism is alive and well in the App Store.
