Why? It's not like I haven't got enough to do, electronically. I blog. I read blog posts, check emails, comment on blog posts and try to reply to people who comment on mine, list stuff to sell on ebay, use Facebook and Twitter and now they want me to buy an iphone and apps? When am I supposed to eat, drink, cook, clean, wash, look after my children? How could I possibly live without the following apps?
Old MacDonald by Duck Duck Goose
Keep your toddler entertained for hours with Old MacDonald. Explore 35 brilliantly illustrated and fully interactive landscapes. Listen to the classic tune in five languages. Even record your own duet.
What ever happened to singing to your child? You hardly need an app to sing "Old MacDonald", do you?
Impress your friends — and yourself — by completing 100 consecutive push-ups. The six-week training program in Hundred PushUps helps men and women of all fitness levels build the strength and stamina it takes to drop down and give ’em 100.
What? I can't start training to do 100 push-ups by myself, I need an application to tell me to do it? (Well, I'm not going to start training to 100 push-ups but an application isn't going to motivate me to do it!)
Hello! Like I need to know what I'm going to look like when I'm old? I'm already there. I need to just be happy with the way I look for now and not worry about what I'm going to look like in the future. What a waste of time.
I could go on forever. I won't even mention the games. I'm not into electronic games of any kind. I just can't stand them. As I'm typing this my husband is getting crankier and crankier at trying to shoot bunny rabbits with a bow and arrow on his iphone. I can't see the sense in it. I really can't.
I'll just keep my Nokia thanks. You can have the iphone and the apps. I don't have enough time as it is and certainly don't need any more 'time wasters'. Although, I probably will get left behind as far as mobile phone technology goes. How on earth will I ever get by? If someone creates an app that will clean my house, cook my food, wash my clothes, give me a pedicure and take the kids to school, I'll think about it.
