There are well over 500,000 apps to choose from: some are amazing, some stink. And some of them are so downright dumb that their real value comes from the joy of laughing at their stupidity. With so many apps on the market, we are making a call: what is the DUMBEST APP EVER?
I Am Rich: When this app first came out, it cost $999 and it did little more than display the words "I am rich" and a red gem on the phone's screen. Apparently, eight people shelled out a grand each and downloaded it before Apple shut it down. Now you can get a free replica of the classic app from the Google Play store.
Hangtime: When you throw your phone in the air, it measures how much "hang time" you get. Even better, it used to share your results with others competing for the most hang time ever!! Um, throw your phone in the air?? To be fair, the description now advises you NOT to throw the phone in the air, just to keep it in your pocket as you jump. So maybe this one isn't so much about dumb apps as dumb users.
