Ironic Apps

Jul 26, 2010

Irony is not necessarily bad, in fact it can be funny. Here are a few apps that I find ironic.

Text’nDrive – Speech To Text Hands Free Message Reader

How about an app called DRIVING-that’s all you should be doing when you’re on the road.
This app reads your emails to you. I think it’s a great idea, but I don’t think people should be doing anything else but driving when they’re “driving.” Driving is a verb. That means you are performing an action and should not be doing anything else. I guess my main problem with this app is the title.


What Women Want

I don’t know what I want, so how could anyone else?
A simple and humorous multiple choice quiz app that tests your knowledge of what women want. Some of the questions are insightful. “If you’ve agreed to call your girlfriend at a certain time, when do you call?”
1. call her later, don’t look desperate
2. call her when you said you would
3. it doesn’t matter
I’ll give you a tip, the wrong answer is #3.



I’m not really sure how I feel about this app. It’s well designed, thought out, and thorough. It walks you through tasks like changing a baby’s diaper and the hints are given by a neighbor. Just follow what she does in a timely fashion and your baby will be happy. If not, time runs out and your baby cries. Maybe I just didn’t like the music or having to do what my neighbor does to be successful at this game. I can imagine kids liking it, but the last lesson I want to teach them is to do what the neighbors are doing. Maybe it’s because I live in Los Angeles? Hmmmm.

Indiana Winery Guide

How long has it been since you’ve been to a wine tasting in Indiana? Actually, how long has it been since you’ve been to Indiana?
I didn’t know Traminette was a white wine made by a grape bred to survive the difficult climate in Indiana. I didn’t know Indiana even had wineries. I don’t think I’ll be going to Indiana any time soon, but you never know . . . . Maybe we should all start going on vacation there. I hear they have firefly’s and apparently some pretty good wine.
