Yoda Bong Origami App

Yoda Bong Origami

The instructional app for how to fold your favorite Star Wars action figures, with bongs, out of paper.

We reviewed this a year ago when the app designers initially tried to release it for iPhone and iPod Touch. But the instructions were pretty hard to follow, given all the zooming in and out.

But this time around we’re looking at it on a preview version of the iPad. Both of us are agreed. Yoda Bong Origami is fantastic on a large screen. Almost feels made for this device. Really crisp. Instructions are easy to follow and the two we folded up – “Darth Bong” and “Queen Padmé of Nabong” – look pretty sweet. Unfortunately, you wont get the chance to fold your own because the app didn’t make it past App Store censors. Again…

Apparently you need permission from Lucasfilm, Fox Home Entertainment and a smarmy guy named “Stuart” at the Jim Henson Company before releasing an iPhone or iPad app using the Star Wars brand. That must not have seemed obvious to the designers until a 19-page cease-and-desist order arrived. Even the Yoda Bong Marketers Association threw its rasta hat into the ring.

The Secret Power App

The Secret Power App

Ah, the power of mysterious hand gestures! They are the ultimate way to get the upper hand in any conversation. By priming the pump with the perfect hand gesture you won’t need old fashion techniques like words and charisma to land that job you’ve always wanted or woo the lady you’ve been oogling at the office. The eyes may be the window to the soul but the hand is the gateway to satisfaction when it comes to meeting people for the first time.

To dominate any situation with the wave or your hand, it’s as simple as one, two, three:

1. Choose from our easy-to-use dropdown menu of various targets and situations that best match yours
2. Quickly practice the animated hand gestures that appear on your screen to maximize conversation dominance
3. Approach your mark and enjoy your new long term relationship, job, pay raise or cheap sex

It’s that easy!

Taco Flavored Kisses App

Taco-Flavored Kisses

Pure gold, señor. Pure gold. South Park-inspired talking hand app. On launch, you see a live video of a cartoon child’s hand with lipstick and eyelashes painted on it. But this is no ordinary hand, it is a hand bewitched by the six-time Razzie Award winning star of the cult classic Gigli, the multitalented superstar singer and actress J.Lo. Tickle her lips and she woos you with her sexy lopezy latina come-ons. Audio and video clips taken straight out of a torrented version of the celebrated South Park episode.
