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. [[xref:|SimStapler|SimStapler]]: [[xref:|Milton Waddams|Office Space]] would wet himself over this virtual stapling sensation.

2. [[xref:|Hold On|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. [[xref:|eShaver|eShaver]]: Feeling a little scruffy at work? eShaver won't help with that, but it will make you look like a moron.

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

5. [[xref:|Zips|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.
