There are things in life that you simply do not discuss in public. Ever hear of the saying …
3 things you do not talk about at work – Religion, Sex or Politics. (I guess Fight Club could be a fourth) It’s true. These subjects are to delicate for general public consumption – much better to keep these matters private and only share them with family and close friends.

Same holds true with the iPhone … some apps, no matter how tempting, should not be installed. Take for example the six apps below – which of the following locator apps do not belong on your iPhone?

GynoQuiz

exactly … the FIND A GYNECOLOGIST app … wth?!?! Maybe we are just skewed by our male perspective … but seriously …

obgyn-kenobi Do the ladies really need to locate a gynecologist at a moments notice? – And if you do need a gynecologist at any given moment, don’t you have some serious health issues and better off staying near you primary physician? – And wouldn’t the ladies prefer a gynecologist they are familiar with than some random obgyn? – And gynecological matters, aren’t they a bit too personal to be front and center on your iPhone?

So many questions are swirling through our male minds. We would love to pick the brains of the developers at iHealth Ventures who released this gem. I mean we can understand the Locate My Parked Car app or the Find A Pizza app … but Find A Gynecologist …
whoa, iHealth Ventures … too much information bro!

    Even if you did need a gynecologist while you were walking or driving around with your iPhone, and managed to find one nearby, the next appointment they could give you would probably be a month away. (There's a shortage of gynecologists in many areas.) Doesn't look like you can tell if each MD is a provider for your health insurance (assuming you have any), either. Nah. This is not an iPhone task.

    Personally, I don't need ANY of those apps. I don't drive so that leaves out two. I avoid McD like the plague. Don't think I'd look for an apt this way, either, but I'm not looking anyway. And Starbucks? Heck, just look around you.

    And what's with these single-item finders anyway? What's wrong with apps like WhereTo? and AroundMe that find MANY KINDS of places? Looks like a way for developers to make 99 cents PER ITEM, PLUS clutter up your available app spaces. I don't mind paying $ for apps, but a buck per item can get steep pretty fast. I mind the clutter a lot more.

    Youve probably already figured out what a criminal lawyer is. The criminal lawyer is someone who specializes in criminal trials. They are not someone who takes care of tax law or represents corporations when people decide to sue them. This is something that is completely different. You will not see a tax attorney representing someone who has been accused of murder.

    Excellent insights Susan … thank you! Indeed, when you couple in the insurance and scheduling considerations – this app makes no sense even more.

    We are working on an upcoming article to discuss clutter in the App Store … some devs are really taking advantage of the system. Sad.

    The clutter in the App Store is one thing (and you know my recommendation, only partly a joke – new category, named KRAPPS), and it ought to be addressed SOON. I like what they've done with the reviews & ratings A LOT; now time to reorganize the virtual shelves. I don't know if they really need new categories, but maybe some sub-categories, as the Games category already has.

    (I also don't like the method for dating new apps or updates so you can't find them easily, which I know is troubling for developers, but also for customers (so WHY do they do that?) but that's why I follow the @148apps offshoots on Twitter that list them as they are released.)

    But what I meant by clutter, above, was the multiplicity of apps on the iPhone screen. Single-item finder apps (obviously) take up one app slot each, which I'd rather give to something more useful, since I have 9 full screens — plus, then you have to hunt for the single one you want at the moment. The multi-finder apps at least consolidate many into one. Or, as danvicente points out, just Google-map the darned thing yourself. (Seems to me there are some pros to using the finders… links to reviews? Can't remember right now.)

    One more point and I promise I'll stop… for now… Wherever all these apps (and Google Maps) are getting their data, some of it is outdated, _mis-filed,” or just silly, so NONE of it should be relied on to be accurate. I think I looked up something like “burger” under food apps in a multi-finder, and discovered that in the medical office building across the street from me, there was some kind of burger joint. Only because there was a Dr. Burger or something like that. If I was in an areas I didn't know, and I'd looked ONLY at the addresses, I would have been unpleasantly surprised. And that's only one of MANY wrong-match examples. Here's a mis-filed example: There's a Starbucks adjacent to the hospital cafeteria at the med school where I work. Google Maps (and the finder apps) list it at the university-owned hotel a full block away. There is NO Starbucks there. My register slip from the hospital Starbucks has the hotel's name on it; maybe the hotel manages it? Go figure. So this isn't Google Map's (or the apps') fault. But it sure isn't going to get me into Starbucks if I'm wandering around on the street looking for one. (Which I know negates the original comment I made, yeah, yeah, and I will actually stop now.)
