There are countless fantastic apps out there that every smartphone owner should download and enjoy. However, there are a few turkeys nestled on the shelves of the app stores – apps which either do very little or cost an absolute fortune to buy. Here we take a look at some of the most shocking examples.
For rubbish parents the world over, Cry Translator bills itself as being the ultimate tool in understanding what your baby wants. The app’s makers claim their creation can read a baby’s crying and understand exactly why the little one is upset. Of course, while you’re messing with your smartphone, your baby will still be bawling its eyes out.
For anyone who has never had the pleasure of urinating into a toilet while a bit worse for wear, this game allows you to do just that. The challenge is to get the stream into the bowl, and that’s all you have to do. Trust us, there are better games out there.
Hold the Button
You press your finger against the virtual button on your smartphone’s screen, and it tells you exactly how long you were in contact with it for. That’s all it does, and it really isn’t enough. This app is free, but still isn’t worth the download.
I’m Rich (White Diamond)
An Android-only offering, I’m Rich (White Diamond) is a daft way of telling anyone who glances at your phone that you have more money than sense. The app does absolutely nothing, aside from displaying a white diamond on your homescreen. The price? £80.
So here’s the idea – Water Globe puts an image of a snow globe on your screen, and you can move the flakes around by swiping your finger across it. Sounds pretty simple, and there are plenty of apps that do similarly pointless but entertaining things. Does anyone have any idea why this one costs £174.99?
Now you know exactly which apps not to get on your phone, take a look at our list of the essentials that every smartphone user should download.
