Weird apps have not been a topic of conversation for me. But recently, I came upon an article that listed a few. I decided to explore further and found some really weird ones, useless ones, and some made me laugh. Here are a few.
Human to Cat Translator. You simply press the record button and say what you want to have translated in “cat talk” and it meows the message to your cat. I’m not so sure about this, as most of the cats I know are going to ignore what they don’t want to hear whether it’s translated or not.
Demotivational Pics. Here’s an app that makes a bad day worse and reminds you just how crappy things can be. Everyone needs this, don’t you think? And it’s free, so not so crappy.
Places I’ve Pooped. The name says all there is to know. You mark your territory, literally and digitally, with this map of places you’ve done your business.
Bubble Wrap App. If you can’t help but pop the plastic bubbles used for insulation, this app is for you. There’s no a game, as far as I can tell, you just decide on the size of plastic bubble wrap and start popping.
Ghost Radar. Ghost hunters need to download this app to wire in sensors for vibrations, electromagnetic fields, and sounds. It analyzes the readings, and boasts its superiority to traditional paranormal equipment. There’s a voice that speaks the words on the display. There’s an upgrade version, and the reviews are all mini-paranormal stories and experiences.
Quiet Candle Makes your phone cast a gentle glow on the display screen. It has six types of candles to choose from and you blow on your phone to extinguish the flame.
App, as you know, is an abbreviation for application. Here is Techterms.com’s definition. “An application, or application program, is a software program that runs on your computer. Web browsers, e-mail programs, word processors, games, and utilities are all applications. The word “application” is used because each program has a specific application for the user (however useless it might be – my addition). In contrast, system software consists of programs that run in the background, enabling applications to run. While system software is automatically installed with the operating system, you can choose which applications you want to install and run on your computer.” Apps built for mobile platforms are called mobile apps.
I have some ideas for apps, too, which range around communication. I’m usually a good listener, but I’m also interested in what’s being implied, as well as said. And on the flip-side, I wonder if someone has heard what I was really trying to express. I have often explained things I thought were clearly stated, only to have them misunderstood. Many times, I’m taken aback when the conversation is examined more fully. “That’s what you heard?,” I often say to myself. And of course, there is the self-communication factor to consider.
Imagine using these apps.
Implication app. This app would translate what was truly being communicated. It would include the core objective, and all the colors and complexities that might be connected – a full spectrum of data. This could range from past influences, and possible expectations. Of course, it would be clearly charted and graphed to make it easy to understand. In keeping with current trends, further data could be purchased with a pro-subscription, which would include a feature for self-implication. You wouldn’t want to be without this.
Omission app. This app would register what was purposely not included in a conversation. You have to be really engaged in a conversation to make sure not to miss the omissions. With this app you would not have to worry about missing anything, just push the recorder and you could virtually or literally stop listening, unless you wanted to add (or omit) something to the conversation.
Depth-perception app. This app would allow you to view a situation or an event with a deeper understanding. It would include a history, and detail the emotional, mental, and cultural aspects that led to the event. The event would be placed in a time and space coordinate. Of course, the details wouldn’t be written out in a string of words (it might take volumes), the data would upload to your thinking patterns – a kind of thought sensory sync.
Subjective Self app. This app would bring to life your personal perspectives and inner conversations on the display screen. It would identify your perspective uninfluenced by others. In total sync with your imagination, these would be brought to life in images, sounds, colors, however diminished, highlighted, exaggerated, characterized, symbolized, colored, or crafted your personal perspective leans. The expanded version (in-app purchase) has a feature to connect to your contacts, politics, health, social media, business, sports, and other categories you might register.
I bet we have the equivalent system software running behind the scenes of ourselves, but that's a topic for another post.
I'm a little app happy, and having some fun. Join me.
BTW, the Implication app would find the phrase “join me,” at the end of each SELF Search, implies that I would like to hear your ideas and comments, and would like you to LIKE and SHARE this site.
