    VentureBeat did the math and on Christmas Day 2008, developer Joel Comm of InfoMedia sold 38,927 copies of his flatulent iPhone app, iFart Mobile, netting a total of $27,249 in net income. One man made nearly $30,000 selling a $0.99 application for a $200 phone, that does nothing more than make a farting sound when you push its screen. The American dream had come true.

    Once word broke of his incredible, logic-defying success, everyone and their mother wanted in on the action and suddenly, a diahorrea of apps spewed forth upon Apple's iTunes Store. The Unofficial Apple Weblog decided to put the stinkers to the test and rounded up a collection of 31 of these applications, which believe it or not, doesn't even amount to the real number of fart apps currently available within the iTunes Store.

    Keep it classy, iPhone users!

    More power to the guy for raking in the dough.

    It's a shame that the 30+ other copycat developers couldn't come up with their own ideas.

    Typical for the entertainment biz these days though. Look at the the remake and adaptation films being released...

    Sadly, Apple rejected my iOrgasm app. It had 25 different orgasm sounds.










    I would have been rich.

    I agree. There are many other sounds that would be amusing to have on an iPhone besides flatulence.

    I don't see the appeal. I wouldn't want my phone screaming in pleasure any more than I'd want it passing gas. I'm sure it would have sold well though.

    Ah, see, you should've called it ...

    "25 Sexy Farts"

    or

    "The When Harry Met Sally Movie Scene Emulator"

    Either one would probably slip right past the kids who are vetting the apps.

    Go to the laptop section of the forum and click "New Thread" at the top of the thread list, AFTER searching of course. That search button is in the top right area of the page.
