    We've all seen the incoming of the fart apps, some unusually violent games involving puppies and kittens and today there was a couple threads about apps that make boobs jiggle(one appropriately called iJiggle). This app, however, I really didn't see coming. Though, I have to admit, it made me laugh pretty hard.

    I won't say too much. You can make your own conclusions. Take a good look at the icon, though. I can't believe what I'm seeing.

    This is like the old iBrate from the old JB days isn't it?

    All it does is vibrate on command?

    Yes, the app store is 98.6% crap.

    But then again 80% of all statistics are made up.

    Hopefully with survival of the fittest, the crappy apps will die out and the good apps continue...

    Can't believe the amount of junk out in the App Store now, unreal.

    Not that I'm accusing NotYou of anything.. but I find it funny that people are complaining firstly that Apple are censoring fart apps, and then complaining that there's too many once Apple do let them through.

    These fill different market segments, and developers will make these apps as long as they sell.

    I didn't mean "trashy" like the app store is morally corrupt or anything. I just thought it seemed like the right word to use. Anything else sounded a little snooty.:p

    Some people like trashy. Makes no difference to me. The thread was just to point out my amazement towards Apple for releasing an app that turns the iPhone into a sex toy.

  14. Give it time.

    Yes, the majority of the App Store is trash, and the latest spate of apps that virtualize various bodily functions or zit picking or whatever are definitely licking the bottom of the barrel. But y'know what? Salacious and puerile apps and games have been around since the early 80s on just about every viable platform that could run them. Shall we talk about Mystique's games for the Atari 2600? And I know there were at least a couple of zit popping games for Atari computers back in the day.

    Right now it's just a fad and all the lowbrow devs are jumping on the bandwagon to fill the App Store with gross apps. Eventually it'll die off. At least until someone comes up with the next "great" gross-out app.

    I think that some kind of special latex protector will need to be developed before we ever see an iPhone sex toy app. I mean, to keep moisture out or whatever.

    Maybe also to prevent disease, if you plan on sharing?
     
  17. I rest my case. But at least he came up with a moderately clever use for the "i" branding.
