There are lots of apps for your iPhone that make your life so much easier. They provide a ton of value, and you can’t live without them. There are others, however, that aren’t quite as indispensable. These are the top six useless apps that will do absolutely nothing but entertain you (slightly).
Bubble Wrap; Free
Do you love popping bubble wrap? Who doesn’t? Now with the Bubble Wrap app, you can do it anywhere, anytime on your iPhone. Pop sheets of bubble wrap that contain more than 2000 bubbles, and when you’re done you can do it all over again. There are even games to go along with it, such as Blitz Pop where you can see how many you can pop in one minute.
For just 99 cents, you can find out how compatible you really are with your crush, significant other, coworkers, or anyone at all. It’s quite a bargain. All you do is input your name and someone else’s name, and you’ll be given a percent score on how strong of a love connection you have. Obviously, it will help you make some of the most important decisions in your life. Don’t get married without consulting the Love-Meter first!
Ever think to yourself, “God, I wish I had a beer right now.” Well, you never have to wish again. With the iBeer app, you’ll have a virtual beer on your iPhone whenever you need it. It pours and foams just like a real brew. When you tilt your iPhone toward your mouth, it will look like it’s pouring right out so you can drink it. Find a friend with iBeer, and you can pour each other drinks phone to phone.
Virtual Zippo Lighter; Free
When you go to a concert nowadays, you often look out into the crowd and see hundreds of lit up iPhones being waved back and forth. Lighters used to be the standard, but iPhones have replaced our need for them just like they’ve taken the place of everything else in our lives. The Virtual Zippo Lighter helps you take concert-going back to its roots by giving you a virtual Zippo flame to use.
This app is a virtual zipper. Drag your finger down your iPhone screen to unzip a pair of pants and reveal what’s underneath. You can choose a pair of underwear from the preset options, or you can take any picture you’d like and place it behind the zipper. As you can imagine, this has a lot of entertaining possibilities. Use it to surprise your friends, or pass the time by doing what you’d probably like to be doing anyway – unzipping someone’s pants.
Ugly Meter; $0.99
If you’re self-conscious about your looks, or if you just don’t know how hot you are to other people, get this app. It will scan a picture of your face and measure your attributes to provide you with an ugly (or attractive) rating on a scale of 1 to 10. The results may give you a boost of confidence – or just the opposite. Use this app so you don’t go through life without knowing how attractive you really are.
