Bizarre Apps That Are Helpful To Some

Bizarre App #8: Nothing

Nothing
Nothing

This is one of the weirdest apps. As the name suggests, the app does absolutely nothing. When you launch the app, you see a blank grey screen with Nothing written in the centre. There are no buttons, no menus, and no way to interact with the app either. You might have found apps which behave differently from what’s in their description on the store but not this one. Kudos to the developers for achieving that feat, the app as described does absolutely nothing. No idea, what this is made for.

Bizarre App #7: iShaver Pro

You might have found a million different usages of your smartphone but did you know you could also shave using your phone? Didn’t think so. iShaver Pro lets you do just that, well, virtually at least. When you launch the app, you will see an electric razor in all its glory. To start shaving, just hold on to the button and virtual hair will start falling. The app even lets you choose the colour and the length of your hair. You can also enable vibration to really get the feel of shaving. The app also has a Pro pack which lets you unlock different razors.

Bizarre App #6: Milk The Cow

Now that you all have shaved and cleaned up, it’s time to get your hands dirty. Milk The Cow lets you, well, milk the cow. If you ever had milked a cow on your bucket list, now is the time to cross it off. To tell you the truth, I was a little grossed out by the app but who knows you might enjoy it. Download the app and fill the bucket with milk in the shortest time possible. Achieve high scores and feature on the leaderboard to compete with others.

Bizarre App #5: Binky

Binky is a social media app which removes the social element from the app. You get everything else, there’s an endless stream of random stuff you can scroll through. You can like and comment on the things you like. You can even perform the left and the right swipe made popular by the Tinder app. The app lets you rebink posts which are similar to the retweet function on Twitter. But, everything you do is pointless, nothing is happening here. Your likes, your web inks, and your swipes are visible to no one. The app just uses them to give you a feel of using yet another social media app. If you want to be active on social media without being social, use Binky.

Bizarre App #4: Weird Guys

Weird Guys
Weird Guys

Weird Guys is honestly a pretty weird game guys and it features a bunch of different weird guys. I know that line might have looked weird, but I can’t really help it while talking about this game, it’s just that weird. The game’s premise is that weird guys are attracted by flowers and in order to attract weird guys there’s a flower dangling on a platform in the middle of the screen. The flower attracts weird guys and you have to tap on them to prevent them from getting the flower. You can upgrade the flower, create new flowers and raise it a little higher, all of which will attract different weird guys that you can collect. All the weird guys have weird descriptions that you can read from with your collection. Weird Guys is a fun time-pass game that you can enjoy whenever you’ve some free time and don’t have anything to do. Don’t expect the game to have a better objective, because it doesn’t. It’s weird like that.

Bizarre App #3: Game for Cats

Game for Cats
Game for Cats

Everyone who owns a feline can get a kick out of this outrageously simple game. As the name implies, this app wasn’t designed to entertain humans. It was made for cats who are jaded by traditional entertainment. The game has multiple settings that pit the feline against lasers and escaping mice. While this may seem like overkill to some, it has accrued a cult following. This game is so popular that it’s been featured in ABC News, New York Times, LA Times, Gizmodo & Wired.Co.UK.

On top of winning over the masses, players have even gone as far as recommending devices for cats. According to them, the most cat-friendly device is the iPad3. The jury may be out on the best technology for cats, but you can’t ignore this delightfully odd app!

Bizarre App #2: Haircaster

Any woman knows that a lot of factors go into having a good hair day. This knowledge wasn’t lost on the developers of this app, since they dedicated an entire project to identifying factors. What they came up with is the ultimate guide for someone who’s trying to avoid frizzy hair.

From weather to humidity levels, nothing is left unchecked by this app. They have a number of warnings that range from “Stay Home” to “Frizz Alert”. All these settings are based on the local weather and accompanied by styling tips to help users maintain straight hair. It’s a bizarre battle to fight, but some people are definitely grateful for this app.

Bizarre App #1: Places I’ve Pooped

 Places I’ve Pooped
Places I’ve Pooped

Out of all the lists people create, this is easily one of the most bizarre themes. The app does exactly what it proclaims in the title, tracking poop. It allows users to drop a pin on the map to highlight bathrooms that they have bombarded. For world travellers, it provides an interesting presentation of where they’ve left their mark. For the normal person, this app will become overwhelmingly repetitive. This odd choice of a theme has allowed this app to easily top our list!
