I love the novelty of a good app. Be it functional or just entertaining, I've got time for it. However, now and then you come across apps which just make you wonder why?...
1. Beer opener
App store description: 'Experience the joy of opening a cold refreshing beer bottle without the inconvenience of actually consuming beer!'
- Some people might argue with the word choice 'inconvenience'!
2. Hold On!
App store description: 'Compete to see how long you can hold the button! The timer shows your progress down to the millisecond and stores your personal all-time record. Develop your perseverance and improve your concentration skills to make you more productive!'
- Certainly a novel way to improve these skills
3. UK Payphone
App Store Description: 'This application allows you to search for public payphones in the United Kingdom.'
- Perhaps I'm missing the point but you if have a phone in your hand...?
App store description: 'The first true office equipment simulator, SimStapler© brings all of the thrill and excitement of a “real” stapler right to the palm of your hand.'
- Who knew the humble stapler could be so thrilling!?
5. More Toast!
App store description: 'Make virtual toast, bagels, waffles, sandwiches and more, with nearly limitless toppings & customization.'
- …I’m still hungry!
