Quirky App Of The Day: Itchy TSA Search Is A Hair Raising Experience

June 29, 2013

Itchy TSA Search (Free) by is a disgusting and hair raising experience. The problem is that it’s not your hair that’s being affected. You’re a TSA agent, and you have to dig through the hair on a stranger’s back. I picked out a tick from my husband’s scalp out of a deep love for him. That’s the only reason why I would do it. I’ve picked out a couple of dozen pine needles that became embedded in his hair after he walked under a low-hanging branch. Once again, only love could make me do that. I can’t imagine doing something like that for a stranger.

As annoying as it is to go through airport security, you’ve got to admit that no one wants to be a TSA agent. No kid looks at them and thinks, “Yep. That’s what I want to be when I grow up.” There are a fair amount of distasteful tasks that these agents must perform.

In this game, the disgusting duty is to root through thick back hair to find whatever might be lurking there. So far, I’ve found popcorn, band aids, screws, and bugs. No wonder this guy set off the metal detector. He has enough hardware on his back to assemble a chair.

If you are having a hard time finding items, you can tap on the metal detector that says “Search.” It’ll point out some problem areas. However, I can assure you that I always could see things to dig out without any help.

As you move the hair around, coins with a TSA agent on them will pop up. As you collect these coins, you can unlock new, fascinating bugs to find. Actually, seeing these bugs crawling around under the hair just makes the app that much more disgusting.

So, why play it if it’s so gross? There are just some apps that you can’t ignore. You want to. You try to pretend that these apps don’t exist. Yet, your efforts are futile. You can’t get enough of this disgusting game because it makes you feel superior about your hygiene. Since misery loves company, I feel compelled to share my agony with all of you. Happy hunting!

Itchy TSA Search is a universal app, and it’s available in the App Store for FREE!
