Tricorder: An iPhone simulation of a Star Trek device
Purpose: Tricorder has successfully conquered the creation of an entirely purposeless iPhone web app. Let me put it this way – when I tried all the options in the program I felt as if there was something I was missing – I was confused. So I reloaded the Web App and tried it all again. Epp, I was right from the beginning – this Web App serves no purpose what so ever.
What it does: This "web app" is supposed to represent a Star Trek device called the "Tricorder". For most of you that don’t know what this is – I’m right there with ya. But all you Star Trek nerds out there – we both know that you’ve already known about this app for a long time, and have showed it to your friends at Star Trek parties many a time already. Without any logic, structure, or meaning, this web app simply shows various graphics depending on what button you click.
Furthermore, every 3 minutes there is a pop up of some Star Trek jargon only a true nerd would understand.
The Verdict: Horrible – unless of course you’re a Star Trek geek of the highest caliber.
What Says The…
Geek: Do I even have to say anything?
Soccer Mom: Thank god my kids play soccer and aren’t sitting home trying to emulate Tricorders on their iPhones.
