Just when I thought I had seen everything in the tech sphere, the Universe goes and surprises me again. Usually iPhone applications can be categorized as the good, the bad and the completely useless and range from the sublime to the surreal.
Today we are going to cover some of the most bizarre apps out there, that will make you tread the iTunes Store carefully, the next time you decide to do some app shopping.
You though your days of playing doctor are long gone? Well think again. The iStethoscope Pro app
turns the iPhone into a stethoscope by allowing you to listen to that
heartbeat of yours. It works as diagnostic tool by making use of the
earphones and a microphone. Of course this is only for recreational use
since listening to heartbeats is so much fun! Price – $0.99
The iLickit iPhone App makes
me question the progress of humanity. This app wants you to achieve
size zero as it encourages you to lick the screen whenever it flashes a
sumptuous meal. Not my idea of dieting. Price – $1.99.
Its not only you that blows hot or blows cold! Now with the Blower app, you can actually make your iPhone blow air through the speakers. Now why would someone voluntary subject his or her iPhone speakers to such gimmicky fun is a whole other question. Price $0.99.
The Stethoscope Pro app may still have some merit however I can‚Äôt believe that someone actually came up with the Cry Translator iPhone app. The app claims to interpret a baby‚Äôs cry and lets you know if the baby is stressed, hungry, sleepy, bored and annoyed. Welcome to 21st century parenting folks. Price – $9.99
The Heart Monitor is another way to check that beating heart of yours and see if you are dead or alive. To test this baby out, you need earphones with a built in microphone. This one isn‚Äôt that bad as it can be a nifty tool when you are exercising. Price – $2.99
The Puff app helps you channel the inner pervert in you. If you dream of lifting skirts of hot Asian girls but are afraid of being smacked (rightfully so), then live vicariously through the Puff app. The idea is to lift the girl‚Äôs skirt and see her indignation. Price $0.99.
Do you suffer from an inferiority complex? Then you should probably stay away from the Fit or Fugly app. The app judges how sexy or ugly your mug is by analyzing your picture. It also uses Fibonacci‚Äôs golden ratio to scientifically call you ugly! Let us know if you make the cut. Price $0.99.
The Rihanna Kitchen Scale isn‚Äôt an application but we still want to feature it. The scale comes equipped with an iPod Dock so you can weigh all sorts of vegetables while blasting Pink Floyd (or whatever you fancy). Nice idea but somehow it makes the iPhone a lot less cooler.
These are just some the crazy iPhone apps out there. Do let us know if you tried any of the app on this list or have more crazy apps for us.
