The 10 most stupid iPhone apps

Pointless programs and dodgy downloads


The iPhone has plenty of powerful applications - and it also has things like Beer Opener, Passion, and Sexy Girl Talk. Here are our picks for the 10 most idiotic apps around.

5 runners-up

We couldn't possibly fit every dumb iPhone app into a single story, but five others stood out enough to deserve at least a quick mention:

1. SimStapler: Virtual stapling sensation, because the real office stapler gets too busy.

2. Hold On: See how long you can hold your finger on a button on the screen. A grueling challenge made for the same type of people who'd use FatBurner2k.

3. eShaver: Feeling a little scruffy at work? eShaver won't help with that, but it will make you look like a moron.

4. Proposal (Will You Marry Me?): A surefire way to get an immediate rejection.

5. Zips: Drag a virtual zip up and down to your heart's content. Enjoy it, as with this app in tow, you'll never be performing that action on another human.
