Before I ever knew that there was an app for it, I would use my iPhone as a flashlight. It just seemed so natural with that large illuminated surface. It would light up dark areas quite well. I even tried to use it as a mirror, but that didn’t work out so well. And yes, there are apps for that. But they don’t work out so well either.



So I wondered, what are some other off-the-wall or ingenious uses for this wondrous device?

Here are some apps I found developed for the iPhone/iPod touch that leave you chuckling with laughter, scratching your head, or bunching your eyebrows together in dismay.


HangTime measures how long your iPhone is in free fall during the time you throw it up in the air. Yes, that’s right, treat that $$$ pricey device you purchased, as a ball. Throw it in the air and hopefully you'll catch it as it comes down, otherwise…



While this app seems to no longer be available in the App Store, it was too crazy not to give it a mention. Too crazy.


This iPhone app is filled with sounds that annoy people.

Sounds like, Nails on a Blackboard, Baby crying, Slurping, Hiccups, Car Horn, all designed to play a prank and annoy people.

What this app may need today is a button for the user to make a quick dial of 911 when someone gets a bit too annoyed by all of these annoying sounds.




Hold On!

Now you really have no life if you download this app and play with it.

Hold on! is a counter for you to see how long you can hold down on the 'button' before you let go.

Really now, who are you competing with here?

Unsolicited advice here, be a participant in your own life, leave this one alone.

Need I say more?

Everything you wanted to know about Poo but were afraid to ask and much more. 🙂



And while not an actual app to download, since I have your attention, this is quite fascinating technology used with the iPhone.

    I still have fun occasionally with VooDude.
    Some programmers have way too much fun.

    You know, VooDude is a favorite and I might have purchased it, but instead I can image the ‘antagonizer’s’ face on a tennis ball while I’m whaling away at it. 🙂

    After this one, I now know that we may have somethings in common. Not things to be proud of … but things in common.

    Anyone else …. the Poo thing. You …. I have to say that I am very surprised at your breath of Apps. …… Hmmm?

  4. Chita says:

    Now Cal,
    Things in common. Don’t be silly!
    These are not apps that I have, just apps I’ve found to be worthy of the article title. And there are many. Stay tuned for Part 2. 🙂
