Perhaps not as whack as the Wart Healer app we recently featured (now banned by Apple) which specializes in removing warts via a mental healer in Germany … Less Cigarette still rates pretty high on the Sack Of Suck scale.
The premise of Less Cigarette is pretty straightforward … launch app – place a cigarette on the iPhone for 30 seconds – smoke cigarette – it tastes like shit – and as a result, quit smoking.
The voodoo behind Less Cigarette changing the flavor of your cigarette is based on some Eastern philosophy. We have no clue what it means or how to describe it, so just read the app’s ridonkulous description …
Less Cigarettes is designed based on the Eastern philosophy on compatibility and incompatibility of the Five Elements Theory. Another theory that forms the basis of Less Cigarette is the theory describing that the inherent vibration and frequency of each color affect people, animal, plant and objects.
The wavelength of the color that is incompatible with cigarettes works to emphasize the unpleasant taste of the cigarette, making it easier for you to stay away from smoking.
So what happens during those magical 30 seconds when the cigarette is on your iPhone with Less Cigarette running? The screen turns a multitude of colors … and it’s the wavelength of these colors that changes the cigarette’s flavor to ass. Sure it works … Apple tests every app for proper functionality prior to approval.
Look … maybe Eastern philosophers are onto something, but living in the United States, we’ve been programmed to believe there are only three certain things in life … death, taxes and double tap to kill a zombie. Yeah, shun the non-believer … but wavelengths making things taste like crap just doesn’t cut it with us … although the irony is that it did make Less Cigarettes KRAPPS.
