And I Thought We Had a Problem with Imitators

There are seven apps – today – in the iTunes app store with a name containing “iFart”.

I’m just amazed.

    You know, it seems odd that you can have multiple apps in the app store with the same name. Yesterday, I discovered that there are three “Units” applications. Someone said, “Get Units, it’s great!’ (No, that’s not a plug; that’s literally what they said) and so I got it.

    I said, this is… not really great, it’s kind of just a list of stuff in a generic table.

    Turns out I had ‘the other Units’.

    At last count 33 “body function” applications have been added to the store since the Pull By Finger ban was lifted.

    The thing I found amazing was that iFart Mobile hit #1 in the iTunes Paid Apps Top 10 list. It overtook SimCity for iPhone to do so (quite a feat IMHO). Its developer published day-by-day unit sales stats. It sold 5497 units on Saturday, Dec. 20, at 99 cents each (minus Apple’s 30% take).

    Good question, Chris. I’d just read the blog post of the author, wanted to see what they wrote for a description. I didn’t realize it was on the top page of the App Store, so just did a search as what I thought was the quickest way to find it.

    One of the reasons I haven’t moved to the iPhone yet is because of the slim pickins of quality apps in the app store — compared to what I have been able to get for my WM5/6 device. Pretty much every category that I am interested in, WM5/6 offers much better solutions.

    But, no good Fart software for the WM5/6.
