I'm pretty easily amused. I find joy in the little things. So, I fully expected to like Rubberduck. I mean, it wasn't gonna make the top 10 most useful apps list, but surely it's good for a few laughs. Right?
WRONG. Even at the low, low price of just 99 cents I feel robbed. The graphic is a pixelated badly drawn duck shape. Somehow I assumed the screenshot was a joke. It's not. And, that's the only graphic. It doesn't bob or float or animate in any way.
Some might argue that looks aren't everything the true test of a duck is it's squeak. Rubberduck fails here too. It's sound — something akin to an over-chewed dog toy gasping it's last breath — is actually just a little bit sad.
The app store is full of reviews claiming that Rubberduck has the power to bring about world peace. Don't believe the hype. Rubber Ducky lovers deserve better!
