    Wow.

    Just goes to show you that many people who own ipod touchs or iphones are immature.

    I seem to be a minority.

    How is buying a cheap .99 cent app for humorous and entertainment purposes being "immature"? get off your high horse. i personally haven't purchased the program but to imply anyone who has bought it as being immature simply shows who the immature one really is.

    ^ I just have to join in. Calling someone "immature" because they called thousands of people "immature" is also "immature". And now I'm "immature" for calling you "immature" for calling him/her "immature"...
    I looked at the video on youtube and I gotta tell ya, it grossed me out. I just don't see the fun in this. The fact that it also offers a "recorder" option makes me wanna vomit...

    Despite my thinking that these sorts of apps are worthless and nobody should spend time on them, I can't help but think that the dev of this app has done a good job of cashing in on a hopefully brief app store phenomenon.

    But I just hope we can move on from here.

    Oh thats too depressing, and I thought iPod Touch/iPhone users had some intelligence, rather than buying into these pathetic gimmicks. Come on, who bought it here and contributed to that thing?

    That's pretty damn funny

    But not quite as funny as the people who have posted here and left their sense of humor behind ;)

    I don't see a point of using that either. Unless you're going to make prank at someone's birthday.

    I love having some stupid fun with my friends and this app allowed me to pull some pranks on them during class ;)
    Wanna call me immature? No problem there. I like being a little immature/childish sometimes. Makes life a whole lot better than it would be if I took everything so seriously.

    I dont quite understand what the appeal of these apps is... and it is justified in calling the people who buy these kinds of apps immature. Really, who would drop money on a program that immitates farting noises? Kids are the first demographic that come to mind (immature by defininition). Adults who still think farting noises are funny are, IMHO, just as immature as the kids.

    While I applaud the success of the application, it is disheartening in the sense that it sets an example to all developers not to put any effort into their projects, and instead focus on gimmicks that can be coded in a week or less.

    From the business perspective, why would you pay the wages of a 5-10 person team for 3-9 months if the best return of investment comes from apps that are made with the least possible effort (1 guy for ~1 week) as long as they involve this kind of universally appealing content.
