Quirky App Of The Day: Electric Razor
Most of my job is fun and games. I'm one of the lucky people who loves what they do and is well compensated for it. However, not everything can be bright and smiling all the time. Every so often, I run into something that takes a little bit of my faith in humanity with it. This app has well-nigh ruined my day. Why? Well, it left me staring at a blank screen wondering how I would even begin trying to review an app that does nothing. Well, it does something; I mean, it's not like I'm staring at a blank screen. Electric Razor is as close to nothing as an app can get, though. Electric Razor simulates the sound of a car during a tornado with a squeaky pink flamingo lawn ornament in the front seat. Just kidding. No, it sounds like an electric razor. It also sounds like my first cell phone's vibration setting. There's not much else to it. Besides reporting that it terrified my children when they touched it, I don't have any more news for readers who are hoping that their iPhone will make one more electric device in their life obsolete. I do have to give props to the developers for at least making the app free. There are others like this one, this one, this one, and this one that expect users to pay for an app that doesn't do anything. I resist buying apps that are entertaining games for $0.99, let alone for an app that just makes a buzzing noise. If I was really needing to hear what a swarm of dying bees sounds like, I can always turn my phone onto vibrate, set it on my kitchen counter and call myself. Until my phone starts rendering my legs hairless, I'm calling shenanigans on these sorts of apps. Electric Razor is an iPhone app that is available in the App Store for the awesome price of FREE! However, a real razor will cost at least $50.
