Does This Make My App Look Too Big?

app25_home_2_399w.jpg

Oh, there's an app for it alright. Why shouldn't plastic surgery have its own app? Developed by facial plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Denenberg, you can either look at hundreds of before and after shots, or take a pic of yourself and email the good doc for an evaluation over coffee. (Nip/Tuck/Latte?) Download it directly kids.

NUDE IT iPhone App Viral Even Comes With Real Fake OMG! Gasps

NUDE-IT.png

No, it does, really. (See below.) While not an actual working app, or is it? (*asked in super secret hushed tones*), the NUDE IT makes any scene nudetastic. Except, well, it's hard to tell if the hero in this one is saying OMG! because of the app's amazing see-through ability--or the subject he's looking at. Latter! Either way, lose the fake shock reactions (the shit will sell itself doncha know), and you still have a cool non-cgi viral, replete with tried and true old-school camera trickery that looks more amazing than it is. Or all you SUCKAZ can just check with creator That Bald Guy.

You Want to What on A Monday Morning?

hardees_parisian_pickup.jpg

Getting picked up by smarmy French guys with cheesy pick lines isn't exactly the thing one really wants to deal with on a Monday morning but, hey, like just about everything else these days, there's an app for that. And it's a branded app. Hence, we write about it to fulfill our duty to you loyal readers. Aren't we special?

So Hardee's - excuse us - Le Hardee's is out with Parisian Pick Up Tool, an app for "young hungry guys" which helps them pick up girls, insult their friends and, yes, ask for a discount at Hardee's...all in French.

Users can select their favorite French mouth image, select a message, and then hold the screen over their mouths to deliver it with a swarthy French accent or in perfect French with subtitles. The app also has coupon that can be used in-store.

We have LA's 72andSunday to thank for this Monday morning slap in the face.

Is That Blue Sky in the Background of This Prius Promotion?

toyota_prius_boston_free_wifi.jpg

See that? Blue sky. That's a rarity these days. Just thought we'd point that out as we share with you this promotion for from Toyota for its 3rd generation Prius. Not that anyone is sitting outside much these days given the incessant rain but a free solar-powered WiFi area was set up outside Boston's Prudential center.

From 8AM until 9PM, anyone can sit down, plug their laptop in and enjoy some free WiFi. Sadly, sunny weather is not guaranteed.

How to Get People to Stop Calling You

september_swedish.jpg

Sick of getting too many phone calls and texts? Yea, we aren't either but Samsung thinks it's a big enough problem to launch a "24-hour silent disco" dance competition during which people listen to their Beat DJ phones and hope no one calls them. If they do receive a call or text they are eliminated from the competition.

'Drinkspiration' iPhone App Gets Absolut's Fetch Back

drinkspiration.jpg

Oh we really, really like this. Absolut has launched Drinkspiration, an iPhone app which makes drink suggestions based on mood, location, time of day, weather, liquor type (yes, they don't just limit it to vodka), drink color, shape of glass, type of venue and a whole lot more. You'll never order the same boring drink again.

Every drink the app suggests comes with a recipe so if you want something a bit too exotic for your neighborhood bartender, you can tell her how to make it.
