The 10 most idiotic iPhone apps

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: Milton Waddams would wet himself over this virtual stapling sensation.

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 zipper-fly 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.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
