    Consider this garbage but it's worth a shot.

    In another forum someone mentioned an idea for an app making fun of "I Am Rich". It would simply show a picture of a "hobo", and when you touch different parts of the screen, he will ask you different questions.

    I am prepared to make the app so as long as Apple accepts it, you should see "The Angey Hobo" in the iTunes App Store this September for the low price of $0.

    Honestly, with I Am Rich pulled from the store, I Am Poor wouldn't be funny. The humor came from the contrast, with no contrast, the humor is gone.

    hmm

    I don't know about that!

    I think this would be pretty funny - I would even pay 1 dollar if it was made well!

    I thought of this too, maybe a piece of Coal instead of a Red Diamond... :eek:

    How about a hobo, who has a lump of coal, and if he rubs it correctly a couple of times, it becomes a red diamond.

    Rubs some more and it becomes a blue diamond.

    That would be a fun, albeit, short game. A quick stress reliever.

    Insert some quip about "put this app under pressure for thousands of years and you'll have your very own iDiamond!!!" I just wish I had the programming know-how to spend time on such a worthless yet hilarious app.

    I am now in development of a new application with the exact same image and the exact same function (nothing) for only $999.98! I shall be rich!

    Details

    OK, well it looks like I'll be going through with making this app. So far all it will be is a picture of a hobo who gets angry at you when you bother him. Once my coding skills get better, I will improve it with multiple hobos - each with unique voices and styles. It will be free untill I release the update, which will bring the price up to just .99 cents. That isn't official yet but I thought I would give a heads up so you can download it free.

    I've started this off in Xcode, but I'm still looking for a picture of a hobo. If someone has a good picture I can use, credit will be given in the product description. I'm busy this month and am waiting on being accepted into the Dev program, so the "Untitled Angry Hobo App" will be on the AppStore this September.

    Can we please stop crowding the app store with useless junk?

    I'm afraid you're too late.

    Dude, I have 17 different flash lights and 13 tip calculators. :rolleyes:

    Good luck with this because two "fart machine" apps were denied today for being offensive.

    If they don't like farts, I'd bet hobos will be offensive. Still, its worth a shot.
