Baby Shaker

Here was an app designed to offend just about everyone except wanton sadists! The app presented you with a poorly-drawn picture of a baby crying its little eyes out. In order to stop the baby's wailing, you simply had to shake your phone until large red X's appeared over its eyes. This description simply doesn't do the app's offensiveness justice when you compare it to how developer Sikalosoft pitched it: "Babies are everywhere you don't want them to be! They're always distracting you from preparing for that big presentation at work with their incessant crying. Before Baby Shaker there was nothing you could do about it." So apparently the application was targeted toward workaholic corporate sociopaths who hate children. Not exactly the world's most loveable demographic.
