We Were Wrong – We Are Sorry

Here at KRAPPS, we are far from perfect. We screw up – we make mistakes. But we have integrity. We can look ourselves in the mirror and say … You KRAPPS Are A Dumb Ass! Rather than sit around and blow sunshine up each other’s asses, we can admit it when we are wrong.

sorry2 Three weeks ago we wrote an article Hooking Up With The Gerbil. We came down pretty hard on an iPhone developer group called Arctic Gerbil. We called them out for spamming the App Store with SIX HUNDRED EIGHTY NINE (689) apps. We laughed at the Arctic Gerbil and compared them to some loser dude who hits on every chick he meets, hoping one  would finally say “yes” to his advances.

Well guess what … we were wrong for picking on the Arctic Gerbil. Our attack was brash, stupid and totally uncalled for. So we admit it … and we apologize:

Dear Arctic Gerbil … Our Bad – We Are Sorry!

arcticgerbillogojpg Seriously, think about it. Let’s say you were a gerbil and you lived in the Arctic … life would kind of suck. It’s not like you could golf or skateboard … you’d freeze to death. It’s not like you could catch a movie or a play … there ain’t shit to do in the Arctic. So really you are relegated to indoor activities like sitting on the couch, drinking beer, picking your nose and watching TV. Good times in the Arctic!

But at least the Arctic Gerbil is productive … they are all about iPhone love … reproducing like rabbits in heat. Wham – Bam … a hundred apps. Boink – Boink … another three hundred apps. And with a total of SIX HUNDRED EIGHTY NINE apps – that Arctic  GerbilKiss22 Gerbil is one horny bastard.

So today we peeked back into the Arctic Gerbil’s love nest … just to see if they still had the iPhone love. WOW – we were not disappointed! There’s been a whole lotta loving going on – to the tune of over 477 apps in just three weeks … bringing Arctic Gerbil’s total love count to 
ONE THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED SIXTY SIX (1,166) apps!!

From what we can tell, their current love child is the iNewsPro application. There are TWO HUNDRED EIGHTY of these bad boys in the App Store. Just think of any city and chances are the Arctic Gerbil spawned it. iNewsPro Enid … Houma … Natchez … Toccoa … Visalia … Elmira … Danville … Kokomo … Yuba City … plus 271 more.

iNewsPro22

But don’t be a hater! Remember, we were wrong for bashing the Arctic Gerbil. We should all be so lucky to have such love in our life … especially the 280 love child iNewsPro apps. And Apple … please, no need to “fix” the Gerbil … after all, what the world needs now is more love in the App Store.

    Why not just have 1 app, where you can set the city?

    I, for one, applaud your humility and ability to admit when you are wrong.

    Thank you!

    The key for us was to think like a gerbil living in the arctic … once we put ourselves into their shoes, it became very clear why these gerbils are reproducing at such a drastic rate. It's like what else is there to do in the arctic but to screw around.

    ONE app with a ton of cities? Now what fun would that be?

    True … a normal developer would go this route … but this is an ARCTIC GERBIL … obviously effected by the extreme weather conditions … the brain is fried, hence the near 300 iNewsPro apps.

    Kinda like the people who make a bazillion apps for finding businesses & other places — a separate one for each kind of place. So you can clutter up your precious 9 screens with app for finding hair stylists, one for finding a gynecologist (remember that one? I'm sure you do), one for finding a psychiatrist (I kid you not), one for finding a chiropractor, one for… you name it. Whose bright idea was THIS? Hmm… Maybe someone who thought 99 cents multiplied by 148 multiplied by the number of iPhones in the world sounded like a whole lotta money?

    Well hopefully when I release some of my apps, you can think in the mind set of a “chicken” in a “studio” 😉

    They are now heavily pushing the Arctic Gerbil brand and include it in
    every app description. Barely a day passes by without a bunch of new
    Arctic Gerbil crap appearing in the App Store.

    Oh, that was sarcasm … we are not wrong, Arctic Gerbil still sucks
    and keep flooding the App Store with their spam. We are a very
    sarcastic bunch here at KRAPPS … we even have a t-shirt that says
    “Hooray For Sarcasm” 🙂
