Over 100,000 apps on iTunes for the iPhone
Can you believe that we now have over 100,000 apps for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch? Some may argue that many of those apps offer no significant functionality or purpose. They're useless. They're only there for fun.
Speaking of useless apps, one of my favorite apps is the Star Wars lightsaber app (Lightsaber Unleashed). Totally useless, right? Not if you're trying to entertain some young kids. You can also get some exercise by swinging your arms while you hold the iPhone or iPod touch in your hand. So, it's not entirely useless. I'm not a Jedi yet, but I'm working on it (don't tell my kids).
Speaking of lightsabers, I actually have a few of these at home (real ones) but I don't let my kids get near them.
What are some of your favorite useless apps?
