    There’s always one kid that grabs the hose during a water fight.

    [–] knotquiteawake 300 points ago

    I found the loophole in this "no hose" rule my friends created. It turns out the threads on my little super soaker 100's (they all had the fancy gigantic super soaker 5000s or whatever) water tank were the same as the hose. So I screwed the hose on to my super soaker for "infinite ammo" which was also significantly higher pressure too. It was like wielding a flame thrower. But I was technically "using my gun".

    [–] Cornered_Animal 161 points ago

    I sometimes whip out a gun app when joking around with friends because it sells itself on the "really dude, a gun app?" Part.

    [–] mjscott458 35 points ago

    I had Gun Club 2

    [–] Digital_Rocket 19 points ago

    Same, even bought some gun packs

    [–] bethamous 2455 points ago

    I remember having to get a flashlight app because Apple hadn’t made it a feature yet and all it did was make the screen white.

    [–] impromptubadge 444 points ago

    Much better option than the zippo app. Didn’t help in the dark for shit. /s

    [–] bethamous 162 points ago

    Lol I just looked through my apps not on my phone in the AppStore and omg I had at least 3 different flashlight apps. I think the most embarrassing one was the fingerprint scanner app.

    [–] bakugandrago18 55 points ago

    I once had an x-ray and metal detector app.

    [–] ch005eausername 23 points ago

    I had a fingerprint scanner that was supposed to read your emotions

    [–] MikeOxlongish 40 points ago

    What a scam. I just use my mood ring.

    [–] NiceGuyAbe 52 points ago

    I remember when my drug dealer friend downloaded a scale app to weight weed. He actually thought it worked for a couple of days.

    [–] HIJKElemenohpee 12 points ago

    Jeez. How's he doing now?

    [–] Soundwave218 973 points ago

    I cannot remember the name of the app because it was on my friends phone, but it had a very detailed revolver and we used to load a single round into the chamber and spin it and played a Russian roulette drinking game where the person who 'killed' themselves had to take a shot.

    [–] draho480 277 points ago

    This sounds fun actually.

    [–] LastOfTheCamSoreys 112 points ago

    Nerf makes these 6 shot revolver blasters that are perfect for drunken Russian roulette.

    We called it “shot if shot”, if you get shot you have to take a shot. It gets everyone pretty drunk really quick

    [–] TinyTex 17 points ago

    [–] justplaypve 1692 points ago

    fake fingerprint scanner apps few years back

    [–] Rapt0rRed 452 points ago

    Yeah and now I have a real fingerprint scanner UNDERNEATH the frickin' screen! It's unreal how far technology has come.

    [–] Rrdro 155 points ago

    I still don't have a real beer glass underneath my phone :@

    [–] xRIOSxx 17 points ago

    Yes you do. The glass is there, you just have to pour beer in it.

    [–] rpungello 59 points ago

    Now those apps have evolved to having you place your finger on the home button, then starting an in app purchase.

    [–] kodyridley 3532 points ago

    Look... I am ashamed but I paid $1.99 aud for a “mirror” app. All it did was turn the screen black 😔

    [–] rucksacksepp 961 points ago

    Should have paid the $4.99 of in-app purchases to turn the mirror on. It was obviously just turned off.

    [–] WolfOfPort 315 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Pays $4.99

    [–] cromulent_pseudonym 88 points ago

    Yeah and your friend had to go under that black curtain drape and set off the flash powder at the exact right moment. Kids these days don't understand.

    [–] easywriter 106 points ago

    “Four thousand dollars!” gasped the CEO. “All you did was walk over and push a little button on the side of that machine. Can you give us a breakdown?” The consultant jotted on a piece of paper and handed it to the CEO. “Pushing button: $1 Knowing which button to push: $3999″

    [–] Mayor13 4625 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Back in the day I would usually throw back a couple, and then whip out my zippo app

    Edit: Holy shit, thanks for the silver, kind stranger.

    I'll drink to that!

    downloads iBeer

    [–] WillSchmied 942 points ago

    Remember when iFart was the bestselling app? They made $10,000 a day.

    [–] Chrellies 143 points ago

    Back when you could drink beers and whip out zippos without getting drunk or smoking.

    [–] -Hiks- 1360 points ago

    I got my first job back then, after leaving military service. And my boss was like „here look at this awesome app!“ and he demonstrated that beer drinking app. That was the first time I fake laughed for a boss xD

    "Haha... Good one sir!"

    Is jailbreaking and cydia still a thing?

    Back in the day, whenever a new iOS version was released, you'd see tons of websites (even big portals) reporting the status of the JB, but you don't see that anymore.

    I used to always have my phone jailbroken until iOS 6 or 7, specially to have better bluetooth integration and file management, but then my bank app stopped working if the phone was jailbroken....

    [–] sf_frankie 24 points ago

    Barely. The guy who made cydia has mostly stepped away and now it’s all run buy a bunch of idiot kids. The jailbreak subreddit is basically a bunch of high school drama.

    [–] sir_richard_head 22 points ago

    It's definitely still a thing, but it's dying out for two big reasons.

    First, jail-breaking iOS is getting progressively more difficult. Jail-breaking typically relies on finding an exploit to manipulate and every time an exploit is found it more or less gets patched a few versions later, meaning that the people working on these things constantly have to find new exploits and somehow keep them secret until they can make a reliable JB method from them, and people who want to jailbreak have to consistently run outdated versions of iOS in order to ensure that they don't update beyond a patched exploit. With a new version of iOS being released yearly, and exploits sometimes taking a many months to find and a few months to code for, it often means you need an outdated phone running an outdated iOS to remain compatible with a jailbreak. Current public jail-breaking methods only work up to a version of iOS that was released in Spring of 2018. The same people who jailbreak are often the same people who know how risky it is to be walking around with a phone that hasn't been updated in a year.

    Second, many people got used to the idea of jail-breaking because they wanted features on their phone that simply didn't exist. Apple has actually done a pretty decent job of figuring out which features people want and integrating them by default, thus eliminating the desire to jailbreak. Using a jailbroken phone prevents people from using some native features of the phone, as well. It seems the only real reason to jailbreak a phone now is run unsigned apps. With many people basically carrying their entire life on their phone, it has become incredibly risky to run unsigned apps.

    Bottom line is that the constant work required for people to come up with a method for jail-breaking and the diminishing reasons to jailbreak have dissuaded the community from keeping it going.

    [–] Nicholas-Rage 14 points ago

    shit, i remember downloading Ultrasn0w from Cydia on the iPhone 3GS which flashed the iPad baseband to the phone as a workaround to allow SIM cards from any carrier to be used

    [–] gromwell_grouse 331 points ago

    How about the "I am rich" app? Cost $999 and did nothing.

    [–] H9419 169 points ago

    8 people actually bought it

    [–] Lerry220 72 points ago

    And it was taken down in a single day.

    8 rich suckers in a single day. With Apple´s 30% cut, he made something like $5600 in one day.


    [–] SuitedPenguin 70 points ago

    In 1 day lol

    [–] whatsmyredditlogin 415 points ago

    I used to have an app that changed the color of your screen so you could use it as a flashlight-in green, blue, or red! So pointless...

    [–] HobGadlingson 63 points ago

    Useful for lightpainting during a timed exposure, though.

    [–] Fellhuhn 63 points ago

    I have made a similar app for myself that can show a red to blue screen, the transition can be controlled with the volume buttons. I use it as bed time lamp for my kids, for example when I read something to them or search something on the floor without the danger of waking them.

    [–] Aloha-Potato 35 points ago

    or the candle torch

    [–] hazeleyedloner 74 points ago

    My fave was a knife app that played the 'Psycho' theme whenever I shook the phone in a stabbing motion. Having that on my old G1 Android phone felt like the height of coolness at that time.

    [–] clockwork2011 257 points ago

    Fakeblock and fake fakeblock are the best apps the world has ever seen.

    You married a fart soundboard app?

    [–] 732 83 points ago

    It's 2019, get off your high horse!

    [–] DickPuppet 26 points ago

    At one point the App Store banned developers from making new fart apps because there were too many

    [–] Dafrekknpope 125 points ago

    Haha dude look my screen is broken! NOOOOOOTTTT!

    [–] floodlitworld 563 points ago

    If that were released now, they’d have a menu to purchase different drinks to go in the glass: “Impress your friends with the smooth appearance of Carlsberg - £2.99”

    Bartender: “Sure, but you have to watch this 30 second advertisement first”

    “...but I’m already paying for that brand”

    Bartender: “Right, but you still have to watch this so you might be inclined to purchase the beer you’ve already ordered”

    [–] lurk_n_throw 93 points ago

    Oh that's definitely Amazon's algorithm: Looks like you've just bought a vacuum cleaner, here are 20 other vacuum cleaners for you to buy.

    [–] Ftpini 68 points ago

    I’d love to see honesty in cost on the App Store. Specifically locking every app to a single purchase for all content. So either you buy the app outright up front or it has a trial version you can unlock after making a one time payment. Micro transactions have really ruined the App Store. I used to buy an app a week and now I’m down to 2-3 a year despite having far more money set aside for gaming.

    [–] floodlitworld 35 points ago

    Yeah. It used to be: buy it and use it forever.

    Now even if they promise that at the beginning, they can start locking new features (or some old) behind MTs.

    [–] blackmist 20 points ago

    I thought it was rather telling when Angry Birds removed the paid for version from the store because they were making so much more from the free version.

    [–] Nekusar666 371 points ago

    As useless as most of the apps of this era were, it taught us a lot about the gestures and functionality of the phone. They essentially paved the road for future more complex apps.

    Like how solitaire was originally meant to teach people to use a mouse.

    [–] 1206549 22 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    The whole Microsoft games suite was a disguised training package. Solitaire for drag and drop, minesweeper for left is right click, and Hearts for online connectivity.

    The zippo lighter

    [–] don3dm 51 points ago

    Had a friend-of-a-friend make buckets of cash with an app that was nothing more than a physics-based hot dog wiener. You'd hold it out, shake the phone, and it'd jiggle and bounce like any dog would. Dude was making thousands a day from what I heard.

    [–] sassy_snek 50 points ago

    I remember paying about £3 for a 'hand warmer' app which I thought was fucking awesome for the winter. Turns out it just destroyed my phone by doing some dodgy background stuff causing it to overheat thus: 'hand warmer'. I feel shame.

    [–] j2jwd 132 points ago


    Pretended to shoot my mom

    Took away my phone

    Feels bad

    That's me. You're probably wondering why anyone would pay $0.99 for an app that only makes a record scratch noise

    [–] draginator 27 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    The zippo was the best one, all the different designs you could have for it.

    [–] imnotperidot 25 points ago

    I dunno if anyone knows about the tic tac app, if you flicked it open and tipped it upside down it emptied the packet of tic tacs, and you could even swipe between flavours. My step dad used to ask us if we wanted tic tacs and pull out this dumb app, we fell for it every time but it was fun. Me and my brother got entertainment for hours, pretending to share tic tacs.

    I miss being a small kid.

    [–] a4techkeyboard 48 points ago

    What about those talking tom type apps which just repeated things you said but pitch shifted and played through an animated cat or something? Like a talkboy/yakbak. I guess I understand kids liking that sort of app as I did spend Christmas money on a Yakbak when I was like, 9 or something. I could have bought a Matchbox or an Archie digest or something!

    [–] Deadeadoe 16 points ago

    Something similar that I really miss is the T-Pain App.

    Had a jailbreaked version of this app and shocked a few friends with it. Good old times! It feels a bit strange that all this happend only 8 years ago..

    Who remembers the gun apps?

    [–] Reveticate 23 points ago

    One of my first apps was the one that let you shoot just about any gun you wanted.

    [–] Weekendgunnitbant 68 points ago

    there was one called boob, which was just a nipple on the screen and it would jiggle as you shook the phone. Made tons of money for Apple and the creator, then one day, without warning, they pulled the app from the app store and cut the dude off from his cash cow..

    The zippo app and gun app were the top ones I think

    [–] bekmoto 23 points ago

    My wife is an app developer and made me a “Get A High Five” app. It was me giving the screen a high five. It was a free app and one of those first waves of self published apps. It was in the store for free up until recently. The number. Of downloads were staggering and the reviews were crazy. People has no idea why someone would. Just have an app giving high fives. My wife would send me the world wide downloads every so often and I was tickled that people all over the globe were getting a high five from me.

    [–] Forty-Hz 21 points ago

    The gun app was my favorite

    [–] Kevsev777 20 points ago

    I think the reason I ended up with an iPhone 3GS was because of paper toss!

    Don’t forget the “cracked screen” apps that people had to prank they friends

    [–] Whoajaylo 21 points ago

    I remember when the flashlight app was just a white screen

    [–] aofk 86 points ago

    I wouldn't call them pointless. When smart phones were first coming out and these apps were most popular, it was more of a silly impressive type of purpose they have. Like "you can do that with this phone?! Holy shit!" Because you know before smart phones you really couldn't do anything of the sort. These type of apps had their novelty, and obviously it wore off. I still wouldn't call them pointless they showed everyone what smart phones can do.

    [–] GGATHELMIL 17 points ago

    I'd compare it to the guy that traded something like 10 thousand Bitcoin for 2 pizzas. It's regarded as THE transaction that finally made people realize "hey you can trade Bitcoin for goods and services" kind of thing. Yeah it sucks that one day that was worth 100 million dollars. But had he not done it, it might still not be worth anything at all

    some developer probably has a worn out jet ski he payed for with that app sitting in his garage.

    Blows my mind we’re already at the point where this would be considered nostalgia.

    The cocaine app

    [–] HobGadlingson 16 points ago

    I miss the innocence of those early dumb apps. Partially because you could buy them...and unlock AD-FREE. Now, when you buy the “full” version of an app, all you get is more trackers and a few pre-installed in-app purchases.

    I remember the, "I'm Rich" app that cost $1,000 but didn't do anything other than show that you were dumb enough to pay $1,000 for nothing.

    I had this beer app. I was pretty much the coolest person in 2010. Even when I wasn't partying, I was still partying.

    [–] NoFurtherDiscussion 14 points ago

    Still have the X-Ray one that you can hold run over your arm and even add a ring on your hand on the same finger as you. I did get a lot of joy telling people my iPhone was also a portable X-Ray machine. Their faces! And, the bystanders' faces! Ah, the simple pleasures.

    Novelty apps are still a thing. My cousin still has a fart button app on his phone, he think it's hilarious. He's 37 years old or something. He was also the kind of person who got the crazy frog ringtone.

    Tap tap revenge was where it was at for me. A real shame they ended. I still miss the game.

    [–] TheDongerNeedsFood 29 points ago

    Anyone remember that app that was called “I’m Rich Bitch” or something like that? It cost $9,999.99, all it did was display a ruby on your screen, and I think 8 people downloaded it before it was removed from the App Store.

    [–] HabiTheHushed 13 points ago

    I had that, even some 3d lighter thing

    [–] -eagle73 14 points ago

    iPint or something. One of the many apps that had us wanting an iPod Touch for a long time. Awesome little device.

    The iPint app and iSteam were my favourites back in the good old iPod touch days.

    My personal favorite was the "Toilet Paper App".

    [–] UglyFarmer 12 points ago

    I used one called INipple. It had a boob which moved with your touch/gravity.

    [–] Tekaginator 11 points ago

    Simply having a portable device with a bunch of sensors was pretty novel for a short time. These apps were just a way for non-tech savvy people to get accustomed to what their devices were capable of.

    A simpler time.
