I know a lot of you are sick of hearing about iPhone fart applications, but keep in mind that iFart Mobile is still the number one app in Apple’s App Store and is making its developers tens of thousands of dollars each day. Also keep in mind that fart apps are still showing up in the App Store in droves each day, and today brings perhaps the crudest one yet: Fart Machine.
I’ve spared you the full glory of the Fart Machine main screen by cropping the image on the right, but needless to say, if you click through to the app’s page, you’ll find some images that, while cartoons, are probably not safe for work.
But apparently Apple thought it was fine to include these in the App Store without its NC-17 warning, which now goes before other apps like the game Amateur Surgeon.
As for the app itself, Fart Machine is just like the dozens of other fart apps out there. Though it does promise on its App Store page:
With lots of realistic sounding farts and nice animations, this machine is state of the fart.
Good to see that these iPhone apps are now resorting to arguably indecent cartoon pictures — and that Apple is accepting them and putting them up without any warning. You stay classy, App Store.
