What Are The Most “Useless” iPhone Apps?

The iTunes App Store has millions of apps available. Most of them are beneficial and they make our lives easier in some way or other, but there are some that do not – they may just be there to entertain us.

Here are some of these apps.


Do you fancy a glass of beer but you don’t wish to get drunk?

If so, the iBeer app can come in handy. With this app, you can pour yourself a virtual glass of beer from the iPhone’s screen. You then put the glass to your mouth and the volume of “beer” will get less on the screen as you are “drinking” it.

In this way, you will be able to “drink” as much as you want, and still be able to drive you car straight after that – because you’ll never literally get drunk.

Apart from that, the iBeer app does not have much of a purpose, but it is still one of the more popular “useless” apps downloaded from the App Store.

talking_tomTalking Tom

Many of you must have heard of this app, as it is extremely popular all over the world.

This app can provide hours of mindless fun for an entire family, because there is a virtual-reality cat on the screen that will mimic everything that you say, no matter how profound or senseless your words are. At the same time, you can also “grab” Talking Tom’s tail on the screen and “pet” him or even “stroke” him, just like a real cat.

Perhaps this might be a good app for a family who wants a pet, but they are not able to commit the time and effort to looking after a real animal.

heat_senseHeat Sense

The sole purpose of this app is to show you the amount of heat that your fingers are giving off. What the reason for this is, I have absolutely no idea. But you are apparently suppose to draw patterns on your iPhone’s screen using a finger to generate your heat. Another grand feature of this app is that you have the ability to choose the colour of your heat drawings.

No doubt, this app will entertain you briefly if you are truly bored, but other than that, it does not seem to have a real purpose.


Gun Club 2

If you are a fan of weapons and ammunition, this is the perfect app for you. In this app, you can pick a gun of your choice, literally load it with bullets – and then fire it – without fear of hurting or injuring a single soul.

Perhaps such an app can be used to vent out


frustrations or to “shoot” someone whom you are particularly mad or irritated with.

Shark Fingers

If you are a sadistic person who wants to know what it “feels” like to be attacked by a shark, then this is the perfect app for you.

In this app, you touch the iPhone screen with your fingers and watch in awe as the sharks come for you and massacre your finger to pieces. Once they are done with their gruesome deed, you will see a trail of blood flowing down your iPhone screen.

This could be an app that you can use if you are particularly frustrated or angry with yourself – and what is more, it is definitely better than physically hurting yourself.
