iMaria, An iPhone App For Men Who Can Only Deal With Virtual Women

There are many sad, sad men on this planet, but the saddest of all can only have a girlfriend if she exists on their iPhone. The new iPhone app iMaria is a Croatian Playboy Playmate (naturally) with a “cute English accent.” Like the good little non-threatening virtual girlfriend that she is, iMaria wears low-cut outfits and asks if you’d like her to cook you something or go tan at the beach. All that is sad enough without the creep factor: the producer, Premika, advertises their app by trilling, “iMaria is a fun and interactive virtual girlfriend application that lets you be in control!”

Guys, if the only person who will let you be “in control” is a digital nudie model girlfriend you purchased for 99 cents on iTunes, maybe you need to think about that. [PremikaOnline.com] Keep reading »

Need Therapy? Consult Your Phone

Is that a therapist in your pocket or are you just really well-adjusted? You may be able to use that line very soon because mobile therapy apps are on the way. Just imagine—you might not have to pay $200 an hour to talk about your problems. You can just pop out your iPhone and a virtual therapist can offer you some perspective. Real therapists speculate that mobile mental health apps will be a great addition to ongoing in-person therapy, but not a total substitution. Some therapy apps are being designed to help patients track moods or even predict psychotic breaks. The exciting thing is that virtual therapy will be available 24/7 unlike even the best therapists. After the jump, three new mobile therapy apps that are in the works. All that will be missing is the couch. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: The iPhone Is Ruining My Long-Distance Relationship!

It didn’t start out this way, but I’m in a long-distance relationship. Having your boyfriend live 1,300 miles away isn’t ideal, but as far as problems in relationships go, things could be much worse: He could be in Australia or he could be into furry sex or I could have caught him cheating on me with various tattooed women after I won an Academy Award and adopted a baby.

So, this isn’t some sappy, romantic article on ways to “Survive Your Long-Distance Relationship.” Here’s the real problem: a third party has entered my relationship, causing fights, miscommunication and anxiety. She’s sleek, sexy and smooth. Her name is … the iPhone 3G. Keep reading »

Protesting Abortion Rights: There’s An App For That!

You have to hand it to the American Life League (an anti-abortion organization) for coming up with a clever way to draw attention to their cause: they thought up the dumbest name for an iPhone app, ever. The “Yo, Where’s The Shirt?” app is part of the group’s second annual Photo Scavenger Hunt. Smart phone-wielding abortion opponents can upload pictures of themselves wearing a T-shirt with a “pro-life” slogan (ALL sells ones that read “It’s OK To Be Pro-Life” or “Abortion Kills A Person”) to earn “points” for engaging in various activities.

Code Red! Your Girlfriend Has Her Period Right Now!

You turn on The Weather Channel for tornado warnings. You turn on the local radio for flood warnings. But what about those, um, natural disasters a little closer to home? Meet a new iPhone app — purportedly just for men — called Code Red: A Survival Guide To Her Monthly Cycle. Yes, boys, you can pay $1.99 to be alerted on your smart phone the exact days of the month your lady’s egg drops down her fallopian tubes. Keep reading »

Fake Karl Hates Your iPhone

As the fashion world becomes increasingly tech-happy what with all its live-streaming runway shows and new style apps, Karl Lagerfeld just can’t jump on board. Well, sort of. We’re talking about Fake Karl, who has a hilarious blog post up today sermonizing about the horrors of modern gadgets. Fake Karl talks about the only device he uses, an iPod, which somehow leads to a ramble about gardening:

“The only gadget I use is the iPod. I have hundreds of them- thousands. I’ve actually designed a special ipod wheelbarrow to wheel them around in. I go out into the garden and I wheel them around, pretending I’m doing some sort of garden-type work. Sometimes I even wear a safari hat, which is the most chic sort of gardening hat in the world. Of course, I don’t actually garden.”

Coming to a general conclusion about all technology in the world, Fake Karl says that it’s fine, as long as you don’t treat them like humans: Keep reading »

Got Acne? There’s An App For That

Are you a victim of cell phone zits? Now there’s a new iPhone application that can potentially combat this problem while you engage in the very same activity. Called AcneApp and developed by dermatologist Greg Pearson, the program emits red and blue nanometer lights, which are thought to help treat acne by destroying bacteria. Sound like some invention from a science-fiction comedy? Well, the $1.99 app hasn’t been thoroughly tested and even Pearson himself expresses doubt as to whether it works, explaining, “This would have to go through a lot more clinical study before I could quantify its efficacy.” In addition, dermatologists aren’t sure that this particular type of light therapy really works in treating pimples.

So what do you think? Is the AcneApp the stuff of futuristic fantasies or a potentially helpful skin treatment? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Got Acne? There’s An App For That (Almost)

In a time not very far away, your iPhone will be able to clear up your acne and help with wrinkles. Really. According to UK’s The Sun, Dr. Greg Pearson is developing an app that he claims will improve people’s skin by shining a special light on your face while you chat on the phone. The light is supposed to kill off bacteria and promote collagen growth. While it sounds like it could be a reasonable plan—derms have been using light technology for a while now to help acne plagued patients—I’ll believe it when I see it! [The Sun] Keep reading »

CameraBag App Turns Crappy iPhone Photos Into Works Of Art

This weekend I became a kick-ass photographer. Well, at least it looks like I did. I downloaded this super awesome app for my iPhone called CameraBag for $1.99 and it turns even the most dull iPhone photos into gallery-quality awesomeness (well, almost). Simply upload one of the images and then change the way it looks using different “lenses” and filters. I brightened and heightened the contrast on this photo of my dog Lucca looking miserable in the snow using the Colorcross filter. After the jump, check out a photo of the dinner that my BF and I prepared last night (butternut squash soup and seared scallops!) looking like it was ripped from the pages of Bon Appetit.

Cover Up iPhone App Will Disguise Your Embarrassing Bathroom Business


While I totally know that the idea behind this iPhone app is kind of sexist — “Eww, gross, who wants to hear a woman poop?!” — I also want it. I may be 30-years-old, but I still get a lil’ shy when doing a numero dos in a public restroom — or in my own bathroom when the new BF is over. The creators of the Cover Up app — buy it for 99 cents — could have toned down the overtly feminine design (it looks like a makeup compact!), but let’s face it — have you ever met a dude who was poo shy? The app sounds various “embarrassing noise” maskers, like a blow-dryer, shower, and hand-dryer, so no one suspects you’re doing anything but a quick tinkle. The app does not, however, mask any unpleasant odors. [Trendhunter] Keep reading »
