I’ve Got Your App Right Here!
There are close to a million apps available for your iPhone. I know because I did extensive research last night on the subject. Ok, I just GoodSearched it, but still I found a couple of sources that said the same thing and it was on the internet, so it must be true.
Nearly 1 million! That means if you spent just 15 seconds looking at each one of the available apps it would take you a very long time to look at all of them. Well over 5 minutes. Trust me. I have an applied math degree.
I’ve got Calorie Counter to keep track of all the calories I consume, but what I really need is Freeze Fatty! – an app that will sense when I was about to snarf a bag of fried perfection or a glob of sugary heaven and yell at me, “Drop that crap!” Hopefully, it will incorporate a shock feature for added aversion to the good stuff.
I’ve got Paper Toss to pretend to toss office supplies at an irritating, imaginary co-worker, but what I really need is RL Brick Toss – an app to download real bricks to toss at stupid drivers.
I’ve got Angry Birds to shoot birds at the pigs on my screens, but what I really need is Auto Snark – an app to shoot snappy come backs at the pigs in my life.
I have Period Tracker to remind me of the past and future dates of that special time, but what I really need is Time to Hide – an app that would warn my family when it’s time to disappear for a few days. After all, family members seem to get so unbelievably annoying for a few days every month!
I’ve got Run Keeper to keep track of the miles I log, but what I really need is Shoe Tracker to tell me where the heck my running shoes are. Hopefully, it will have an advanced feature for tracking headphones and water bottles, too.
I’ve got Words with Friends to play word games with my friends around the globe, but what I really need is Word I’m thinking Of – an app that tells me the word that’s on the tip of my tongue, so I spend less time looking like an illiterate, yammering fool. Or, Who’s that Friend? – an app that tells me the name that goes with the face when I see the guy I sat next to in a marketing meeting for 4 hours yesterday, but couldn’t identify when I bumped into him at the grocery store today.
I’ve got Fruit Ninja to hack up iFruit to my heart’s content, but what I really need is Goo Ninja - an app that sounds an alert when I am about to experience the joy of blindly sticking my hand into the fruit bin in search of a kiwi only to instead grasp futilely at a pile of green slime and puddled brown liquid.
I’ve got Google Earth to let me see anywhere from the far reaches of the galaxy to the depths of the ocean, but what I really need is Google Car –an app to tell me where the heck I parked my car at the mall. Hopefully, this will have an advanced feature to tell me which of our cars I’m looking for, too.
Hmmm. I wonder if I drove the van today.
Laugh Out Loud!
What app do you need in your life? Shoot me a comment with the details. I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.
