We all know that Apple is notorious for having very strict rules as to what can be considered an app worthy of being in their store.. However, a number have slipped through the censors, or are otherwise just so weird that having them on your mobile is a sure sign that you have some odd hobbies!
First off, a virtual girlfriend.. While this one is for Korean iPhone users, its still a bit odd.
For millennia, people have been looking for love in all the wrong places. Now, they need to look no further than the iPhone App Store.
Savvy South Korean programmers have released an iPhone app that gives lonesome cell phone owners regular messages from a digital girlfriend named Mina.
The “Honey It’s Me!” app sells for $1.99 and offers Korean-speaking men four daily video calls from a winsome 20-something model who has recorded 100 messages, including “Are you still sleeping? Time for breakfast!” and “Good night, sweet dreams”
Explaining why he created the device, Kim Yoon-Kak, head of Nabix, said: “I’ve developed this application to console people for their loneliness.”Mina represents a new step in virtual girlfriends, but she’s hardly man’s first attempt at crafting a digital paramour.

One of the stranger apps is iDrunkTxt – an app that appears to be intent on making it easier to send text messages when you’re out and about, and… slightly intoxicated (or more than that). This app chooses someone for you to talk to, because, yanno, scrolling through and choosing a name is too much work. Or maybe you want to randomly hit on your boss by mistake! (Link)
