12 Offbeat iPhone Apps
When Apple opened up the iPhone to third-party applications in 2007, it didn’t take long for the bizarre ideas to start coming in. Apple has banned certain apps out of competitive interests, and others for reasons of value, relevance and taste. Remember the $999.99 app called “I Am Rich” that simply displayed a shiny red gem on the screen? It reportedly had eight buyers before getting shut down. But for the most part, an unbridled spirit of creativity is encouraged out there in the third-party development world, and that inevitably results in products that fall outside of the mainstream of business usage, although there are some funny ones with actual utility. Ultimately, the following apps speak to the unsinkable spirit of invention – not to mention our obsession with pop culture and love of fun. We found the following offbeat apps through websites including Geeksugar.com and Weirdworm.com. Fortunately, none of them will set you back $1,000.
