Five ridiculous apps that people actually buy!

As you can imagine as a web development agency we get asked to create many types of rather strange apps but these really are pretty ridiculous, what’s more, they actually cost money!

Hair Clinic £2.44

That’s right at £2.44 the Hair Clinic app promises you a ‘way to a life of healthy and abundant hair.’ Bouffant claims, but it seems that the developers of this app felt they were clearly onto something with just three simple steps… Step 1. Clean pores by holding phone on your head for 3 minutes Step 2. Massage your head with your phone for 4 minutes Step 3. Promote hair growth by emitting radio frequencies to your head for another 3 minutes So there you have it, a 10-minute hair growth session all made possible through your phone and your head. Our thoughts? Strange.

Blower £0.69

Don’t you just hate blowing out those birthday candles, we get it, the effort to exhale can sometimes be that bit too much.

Don’t you just hate blowing out those birthday candles, we get it, the effort to exhale can sometimes be that bit too much. Well no need to fear, at only £0.69 this amazing app will actually blow the candles out for you to save you all that energy! Simply put the volume up on your phone, point at those pesky candles and pretend to exhale and there you go. And not forgetting the handy tip from the developers, don’t burn your phone, Blower has your lungs covered, and of course your laziness too.

Hang Time £0.69

However little the Hang Time app costs at £0.69, the fact that it even costs money is somewhat worrying to say the least. Here’s an app that actually encourages you to throw your expensive phone as high as you can and challenge others to do the same. The app then records how quickly your phone comes back down to earth or the floor. A scenario we imagine wasn’t quite thought through by the developers of this special number.

Lazy Husband £0.69

Yes that’s right, there is an app called the Lazy Husband that effectively aims to be your wingman, your bud, and your get out of jail card. With all the right words for the right moments to say to the wife, this app offers you answers to those awkward situations, e.g: do I look fat in this dress? In fact, you won’t even need to say anything, just prerecord your answers, point and play. Sincerity, pff what sincerity. Although the app is high on this list of the ridiculous, we have to give credit to its 12-year-old developer. Not bad.

Fatburner2k £0.69

Now this app deserves a JBi WOW even if only for the Fatburner2k claim, which we think will leave you equally flabbergasted. Here it is, ‘help your body consume fat molecules using disharmonic, molecule to molecule, physical oscillations.’ In other words, place your phone 6 inches above your belly button and the magical vibrations from your phone will give you the ultimate workout to transform your tyres into surfboards in no time. Your phone your gym.

There you have it, 5 absolutely bonkers apps that people have actually bought! Now the question for you is this which one is the most ridiculous?
