So I know Apple has lowered its standards in terms of what can be allowed into the iPhone App Store with NC-17 games and fart apps galore, and I know those are selling like crazy, but this is getting ridiculous.
A new app released tonight called iAmAMan [iTunes] may have just lowered the bar even further. It keeps track of your girlfriend’s menstrual cycle — but that isn’t necessarily the bad part — it’s that it keeps track of menstrual cycles for the several girlfriends in your life.
I’m not sure where to begin, so let me just paste the information about the app below in its own words:
“I am a Man” will help you with your private life planning. You will know about your girlfriend’s period and her mood. You can plan your dates, evening and save some money.
But it’s not all!
You can add several girls. The program helps to avoid misunderstandings and preserve your relationship. Even if your girlfriend accidentally bumps into this application and makes you enter the password – she will be the only one to appear on the list, because “I am a Man” program implies personal passwords for each girl!
* Trace your girlfriend’s periods
* Set a master password for the whole program
* Set personal passwords for every girl
* Make calls by simply tapping on her name
But my favorite part may be the cunningness of the application. Each girl has a different password so if one hacks your iPhone, she won’t see another girl’s menstrual cycle is on your calendar.
I wouldn’t consider myself a prude, but who is this app targeted to, Wilt Chamberlain?
The app is $1.99 in the App Store [Link].
