10 smartphone apps that should probably not exist
1. Will you marry me
If you want to propose to your loved one, you pick a romantic spot, buy a diamond ring, and do everything you can to make it a moment she will never forget. But a cheesy iPhone app to shoot the big question for you? Let's just say that chances are you will get dumped for being lame, so don't even think about it.
2. Game for Cats
For a cat, chasing a tennis ball or the dot from a laser pointer is just as fun as playing with your $500 iPad, so why bother? Besides, it is not worth testing whether the tablet's display is resistant to kitty claws.
3. Vuvuzela World Cup Horn Plus
Remember those annoying vuvuzelas from the 2010 World Cup? You can still buy one of these online for a few bucks. Unfortunately, someone decided to make a vuvuzela Android app that mimics the annoying sound... and priced it at $200. If you ever get this app, you don't deserve owning a smartphone.
4. I Am Rich LE
This is the "light" version of the infamous (and now pulled) I Am Rich iPhone app, which cost $999 albeit having no functionality at all. At $9.99, this one is a "steal", which you shouldn't try anyway. By the way, Android users can download the app for free and see what 8 people dropped a grand on.
This is an app that should theoretically help you get some rest at work, but in reality, it can get you fired. It simulates various sounds that you are likely to hear near an office desk. You can imagine how realistic they would sound through an iPhone loudspeaker.
6. Feed Your Dino
Clones of popular video games we have seen plenty of, but Feed Your Dino is among the most shameless ones ever. It is a carbon copy of Cut the Rope, with the poorer graphics being the only major difference. The game is currently nowhere to be found on the Google Play store, but don't even bother looking for it at other places.
7. Infamous Adolf Hitler Quotes
Seeking inspiration from one of the most well-known bad guys in recent history is probably not a good idea.
8. Shut Up! App
It is ironic how a developer known as "THINK Apps" could put together an app like this. An app that yells "Shut up!" for you, and does nothing more.
This is an app that can come in handy... in case you have several girlfriends that you want to "keep track of". Wrong on so many levels.
10. My Virtual Girlfriend
Guys who are interested in an app like this probably have no real girlfriend. Well, downloading it ensures they won't have one anytime soon, and who knows, they might marry a pillow one day.

i am rich is the most amazing one, I think.

It'll definitely be worth mentioning that even the app that iPhone owners had to pay a thousand bucks for can be found for free on Android. :D

If you would read the description of the app, then you would know that they do say, "By the way, Android users can download the app for free and see what 8 people dropped a grand on".

That's because they become bottom of the barrel apps.

I believe the iphone fart app should be mentioned.
