You know what’s very funny? Farting. Even funnier? Making it look like other people are farting. Naturally, this is the raison d’etre of the iFart, an app that comes with 30 different recorded fart noises that can be released on command, timed or sent to other users’ handsets. See below for the deployment of the iFart at a Medina, Ohio council meeting. Hilarity ensues.
The Fake Calls app might just be the most useful pranking app of all – want to get out of an awkward meeting or conversation? Have the Fake Calls app buzz you a line, allowing you to tactfully withdraw while you spend time with your iPhone and no one at the other end. The device will authentically ring and vibrate, posting pictures and text of your choice – so you just might have to take a ‘call’ from Steve Jobs!
A mainstay of pranking is simply to scare the bejeezus out of your companions. And what better way is there than to have a shrieking face suddenly appear out of the blue, screaming at them? Fear 2 appears to be an normal web browser but after a set interlude, the app will take over, switching the display to a demonic face and issuing a noise as loud as the iPhone can make. The makers do not accept any responsibility for dropped iPhones!
Eek, there’s a bug crawling around in your phone! Not really – but there is an app that will make you think there is, and if there’s one thing that’s sure to drive you over the edge, it’s the thought that your little darling has become infested! You can choose to have either Seymour the ladybug or Audrey the cockroach roaming around your menus and photographs – which might make you feel distinctly uncomfortable, even if you put them there!
As we all know, the iPhone has some pretty astonishing capabilities. One that not a lot of people know about is that it doubles up as an x-ray scanner – or maybe not. Rather than doing a Marie Curie and rapidly giving everyone cancer, this app actually just superimposes an x-ray image onto your hand. However, it does do a surprisingly good job of it (as can be seen below). Astonishingly convincing, we say!
