Much to the delight or disappointment of AppCravers everywhere the stink attack competition has begun. As if beer battles weren’t bad enough, two new "potty apps," iFart Mobile and Pull My Finger, are quickly rising to the top of the App Store charts. In fact, searching the word "fart" in the App Store brings up 30 applications for iPhone and iPod touch that have some variation on the smelly theme.
iFart offers more than 20 unique fart sounds from heavy hitting to wet. They include fun names like Squirt, Jack the Ripper, Bubbler, Kazoo, Howard The Duck and Sick Dog. Each includes its very own unique fart sound. iFart comes complete with a sneak attack feature that allows you to set timer in the app to play anyone of your favorites. iFart also includes a security feature where the app can be set up to make a fart sound if someone moves your handset even if its locked.
Pull My Finger comes complete with 18 different fart sounds and cartoon characters. Choose from BigFoot to Bully and Santa to the Pop Singer. Each fart will not only have your phone vibrating and whizzing with unique sounds. Pull My Finger comes with a random mode for unexpected farts and a chorus mode that plays an endless loop of sound.
Visually both apps have great graphics and nice visual interfaces. They are simple clean and colorful. Pull My Finger’s cartoon personalities attached to sound give it a little something extra but not much. The security feature of iFart is kind of clever and the timer could be fun once or twice but this is where the fun ends. Neither app has sounds that are very authentic. And there’s only so much farting that can be entertaining to anyone. Both apps are pretty stable and loaded pretty quickly.
In this competition iFart wins because of its security feature, and timer. Pull My Finger promises a timer function in an update and motion activated sounds are on the way too.
These apps are undeniably underwhelming for the average adult but are sure to captivate the hearts and wallets of teen aged boys across the country. They are currently on sale in the App Store for just 99 cents.
