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.

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!

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!

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. ;-)

Love it. Apple brags about how many apps it has. How many of them are actually useful though?

So what do you actually mean by useless? Just trying to figure out how, say a gun simulator is more useless than a virtual lighter?

To clarify, I'm not saying one is more useless than the other, these are just my favourite ones in order from my least favourite to most favourite. :-)
