IPhone Apps : Twelve of the worst ever

Here is a list of twelve iPhone apps that you really want to avoid. There are thousands of really useful apps out there, but there is an equal amount of rubbish as well to clog up your iPhone too. Here is a round up of the worst offenders:

IFlush Toilet :

There are numerous apps out there which emulate sounds of various body functions, but if you really must have this sort of thing on your phone, this is one of the worst and best flushed immediately!

Christmas Tree Maker :

Why would you want to spend time decorating a virtual tree on your phone? As apps go, this is one of the worsted designed out there, and should be used as an example of how not to make an iPhone app.

Traffic Light Changer - Make it Green :

Apart from the simple fact it doesn’t work, it is also extremely dangerous to drive and mess with any mobile at the same time. In many countries its also illegal to use your phone while driving. If you keep getting lots of red lights, it’s life way of telling you to slow down a bit.

3D Heater :

They don’t come much dafter than this app. It’s just a 3D picture of a wood burning stove, which is meant to warm your hands. As you might of guessed, it doesn’t work. Rubbing your hands together briskly is an easier option.

Night Vision :

Do you serious think there could be an app that would turn your iPhone into a cool night vision device? Again, it doesn’t work, and is complete waste of time and space. You would probably get better results form eating more carrots.

Finger Sprint :

This meant to be a game where you use your two fingers on the screen as pair of legs to see how fast you can go. Apart from it makes your fingers really sore, its total pointless.

Mirror Mirror :

Again another one of the many daft apps that is meant to turn your iPhone into a useful mirror. Why not just turn on your phone’s camera, and have a look at face if you must, or simply just look in a real mirror.

Fake Conversations :

This app has a series of fake calls than you can use as an excuse to get out of various situations such as work, a bad date or school for example. In theory, its a good idea, but very poorly executed, and not really much use outside the USA, due to the American accents.

Drunk Snipper :

Another iPhone toilet app, this time to help train your man to aim straight into the bowl. Luckily, its totally free as its a complete waste of time, and again needs to be flushed. Potential for dropping your iPhone into the toilet for real if you are not careful. Try sitting down next time if your aim is a little of target.

Irritation :

The title of the this app sums it up nicely. It's a collection of animal noises that is meant to irritate adults. Some of the noises are laughable, and don’t even sound like the animals that the are meant to be. It’s irritating alright, more to the phone owner than people that you are trying to irritate.

Shaver :

This app has to got to be in the top three of totally useless iPhone apps ever. What does it do? Simply buzzes like an electric razor. That’s it. Totally pointless to the extreme.

Alpha Male Hand book :

Is it meant to be self help or a just a joke? It has a twin too, the Beta Male hand book. Both are just rubbish and not even worth the effort of downloading on to your phone. You cannot even class them as funny.

Well, that's it. There are many hundreds more of really useless apps out there and probably many more to come. Please feel to try a few, and leave a comment on how you got on. The only good thing is that they are all free to download from iTunes, and can be easily deleted off your phone with a couple quick swipes of the hand.

      LOL, pretty funny list you have here. I would never pay or even download any of these Apps. These are the apps that should not be allowed in the App Store, but sadly they still do.
