Farting iPhones
You've just shelled out a couple hundred bucks for a new iPhone, and now you're paying outrageous monthly service charges in addition to that. So what can you do to show off your new status symbol? How about make it fart?

DoApp has introduced a whoopie cushion app for the iPhone:

This app includes 10 varieties of gas sounds. The user will be able to choose the right length and power to make the proper sound effect for the moment. In order to use this application, a user has to touch the iPhone once or swipe his finger across the screen.

But isn't the point of the prank to make it sound like someone else just farted? If you install this on your iPhone and play it during a meeting, everyone's going to be looking at you.

Two things:

1: I just went through the App Store for iPod Touch applications and I didn't see this thing in there (no, I wasn't looking for it, it's a coincidence that I was just there.)

2: I can't believe they didn't name it iFart.

You mean farting doesn't come standard with the new iPhone?
No wonder consumers are dissatisfied.

You could make farting noises for free. And with a bonus odor included.
