The Apps created for use on the iPhone and iPod Touch number into the thousands many, many times over. 

Apps vary in range from being ingenious and falling into the "Can't live without it" category to being utterly ridiculous and falling into the "You've got to be kidding me" category. 
Here is Part 2 of my continuing list of Apps that shock or amaze as I make my way through the App Store.

iSteam

iSteam

With iSteam:

  • Blow in your mic to haze the screen. (iPod users need external mic)
  • Use your fingers to write messages and draw just like you would on your mirror after a hot bath. 
  • Shake your iPhone to clear the screen and start over.
  • Watch the droplets form and leave their mark thanks to our unique SteamX physics.
  • Finger squeaking sounds included.
  • Choose which of your favorite images you want to “steam.”

  • Phyllis Evans

    Why does iDumb appeal to my inner 12 year old? Thanks, Chita. I needed that.

  • Chita

    Phyl,
    With this, you (regressed 12 year-old) won’t be sent to your room without supper, after you do the deed. 🙂

  • Lu Bota

    Chita, I have a son in the ‘movie industry’….cinematographer,actually…he made the comment that teaching me Photoshop (at his level) would be just too difficult. That has been ‘bugging’ me! I am not a professional photographer, but I do like to ‘photoshop’ the odd image. Could you teach me in a few easy lessons…that I am not the slouch he thinks I am….and what would your fee be? I know I can ‘follow instructions’ from the manual but, being lead by the hand by a pro would be much more fun!

  • Chita

    Lu,
    That just gives us an incentive and a goal. 🙂
    I’ll send you an email off-line.

  • Calvin

    It really amazes me of what you can find with your finger.

  • Chita

    What’s more amazing is what you can do with them! 😉
    You can count on them, pick up stuff with them, just endless possibilities.
