Top 10: Useless iPhone Apps
Ever since the creation of the first ever iPhone back in 2007, the world has enjoyed access to not only one of the smartest smartphones ever built, but the mobile applications that come with it made available by Apple's big-hit success the Apple App Store. Since the App Store's release back in 2008, iPhone users have enjoyed access to Apps for, well.. Just about everything really, some useful, some entertaining and some just down-right useless.
10. Heat Pad Lite
An apparently "heat sensing" application which uses thermal imaging to display heat marks left on the iPhone's screen after you've touched it, whether or not that is actually true, it's still pretty cool!
9. Heat Sense
by Graham Dennis
Heat Sense, like Heat Pad Lite, mimics the heat given off from your fingers as you swipe across your device's screen allowing you to draw patterns in a variety of different colours and watch them disintegrate before your very eyes... Useful!
8. Coke Drink
Just in case you weren't already thirsty for a nice cool Coke Drink, this app'll make sure you are! Simply pop the top off the bottle, watch your virtual glass fill, tap to add some Ice and slurp!
7. Pocket Whip
by App City
One of the simplest apps on the list of Top 10 Useless iPhone Apps is the Pocket Whip, a.. Well pocket whip, essentially. Simply the flick the device, round, backwards and forwards for realistic whip sound effects!
6. Virtual Lighter
by iHandy Inc.
The iPhone and iPod Touch app 'Virtual Lighter' is exactly that, a virtual lighter, flick the device backwards or swipe to open the top, roll the wheel back to spark up and play with the virtual flame. The only time it is EVER acceptable to play with fire. ;-)
5. Talking Pierre
by Out Fit 7 ltd.
Following the tremendous success seen by app developer Out Fit 7 ltd.'s useless Talking Tom app, a whole range of talking animal apps were brought out, one of which was Talking Pierre the Parrot, talk to the Parrot and watch repeat what you say and talk back, just like a real Parrot.
Similar to Coca-Cola's Coke Drink app mentioned above, the iBeer app by Hottrix is an oldie but a goldie and one of the most downloaded useless apps on the App Store. Pour yourself and 'drink' a wide range of virtual drinks including Beer, Water, Hot Chocolate, Cola, Champagne, Coffee and more.
3. Talking Tom
by Out Fit 7 ltd.
Out Fit 7 ltd.'s Talking Tom, available on both the App Store and Android Market is another successful oldie, Talk and have anything you say repeated by a dodgy looking cat in a dingey looking alleyway, pet him, poke him or grab his tail. Can be funny, but mostly just dead annoying!
2. Shark Fingers!
Shark Fingers! is your virtual shark tank, filled with vicious, hungry sharks. Touch the device screen and watch the Sharks swarm to and attack your fingers leaving a lovely trail of blood behind, let them get you or tease them!
1. Gun Club 2
by The Binary Mill
Number 1 on this list of Top 10 Useless iPhone Apps is one for the gun fans, Gun Club 2 by The Binary Mill is your very own firearm stockpile. Gun Club 2 is a Gun simulator, choose your weapon, load it, cock it and fire away to your heart's content!
