    With so much puerile stuff like puke and fart noise apps continuing to sully the app store, maybe Apple should instigate a 'Bodily Function' category where all these apps get sorted (whether they like it or not)

    Then have a setting in iTunes where you can choose not to show this category

    I'm sure there'd be an outcry from the devs who worked on such rubbish - but the irony would be that the noise from said devs would be like a cacophony of pukes and farts!

    problem solved

    I agree that these sort of apps are total crap, but I just ignore them.

    Was that an intentional pun?

    good point/s

    Good point - I suppose it's a bit of a stretch - but we can allow wobbly bit apps in as, even if not a boddily function, they are a function of the body:D

    Well, they wouldn't put it under "Bodily Functions" I don't think lol BUT I would suggest that they create a more logical app sub catagory of "Gags/Humor". This would def weed out all of those apps from the other ones.

    I ignore them too
