4 Completely Pointless iPhone Apps

Many of us love nothing more than to while the hours away with the latest mobile apps. There are so many great apps out there to choose from, with developers now able to produce high quality games and utility apps.

Not only a form of entertainment, some mobile apps are designed to make your life easier. Apps are constantly evolving and the developers are always coming up with brilliant new ideas.

However, some of apps out there have left us pretty baffled. What’s the point in them? Is there a point? Was there supposed to be a point? Have we missed the point? In fact, they are just downright pointless.

We’ve taken it upon ourselves to name and shame the main offenders. 


This totally pointless app has been around for some time. We’re not sure if it’s some kind of joke or the developers genuinely thought that someone out there might find it useful.

Back in the days of the iPhone 3 and the 3GS, we didn’t have the luxury of a real life LED to light up our lives, we simply had to use the light from the screen to find our lost possessions in the hours of darkness.

But developer Marco Jacovone thought it would be a great idea to develop an app that could control the brightness of your blanks screen and claim that it’s a torch. Totally pointless!


Have you ever wished that you could simulate drinking a beer with your iPhone? Well, you’re in luck! iBeer turns your iPhone into a virtual pint of beer that sloshes around and foams up as you tilt your phone.

Totally pointless!

Big Red Button

Now, this one’s pretty hard to describe. Actually, no it’s not. It’s a big red button and you’re not allowed to press it. DO NOT PRESS THE BIG RED BUTTON! Alright, press it and see what happens.

Totally pointless!

Split the Bill

We all know the turmoil that ensues at the end of a meal when it comes to splitting the bill. God forbid that we’ll have to do some arithmetic. Even if you’re not very good with numbers, the chances are that your phone has a calculator. If it doesn’t, then something’s wrong.

Anyway, now you’ll never have to worry about splitting the bill. Enter the amount of the bill and how many people ate, and ALACABAM! The amount each person pays is displayed on your phone.

Totally Pointless!

Come on developers, keep the genius ideas flowing and keep the rubbish one to yourselves.
