Apps on your smart phone can be helpful tools to improve our everyday lives and a welcome respite from the tumultuous world we live in (not to mention making public transport less awkward, I mean who wanted to talk to that weird guy on the bus anyway right?).
However there are many apps that can ruin your life! We have concocted our own research here at Nova and wish to issue a public service announcement on the following apps which have the strong potential to leave your life in shambles.
This one has personally ruined Dylan Lewis' life. He originally got the app in order to raise and care for a virtual pet horse for his daughter. But now he has to continually feed it or pat it so it doesn't die or runaway or something and he keeps ranting about unicorns every time he opens his i-Pad. That is his horse at the very top. It is frightening to hear a grown man cry over a digital unicorn he can't afford.
This is a game where you have to use your finger as a sword to cut up falling fruit and avoid troublesome bombs that just keep appearing more and more and more until you are just viciously slashing your screen in a virtual fruit salad of juicy craziness and yelling and flailing your arms in desperation until a policeman asks you to stop.
Never under any circumstances get this app. Ever. The aim is to hold your finger on that button for as long as possible. This app will make you a social outcast, sneered at by everybody, especially if you are competitive. Look, just take our word for it ok.
Not only is Perfect Circle a great band with Maynard from Tool on vocal duties, but it is also this ridiculously frustrating app. The aim is to draw a circle on the screen with your finger. The app then does some calculations and gives you a score out of 1000 for how good of a circle you drew. You will be practicing drawing perfect circles in your sleep after using this for a week and you will eventually hate all circles that you see in real life, cause they are so round as round can be and yours will never live up to their perfection. Stupid circles!
I AM T-PAIN
No. No you are not. And nobody wants to hear you pretending to be an autotuned T-Pain. Please go away now and never talk to us again.
