A Little Intro … I am a long-time fan of KRAPPS, a regular reader, and very honored to be the first to share a ‘Getting My KRAPPS On’ piece over here. What does getting my KRAPPS on mean to me? It means taking a leaf from The Book Of KRAPPS, and sharing my thoughts on one of the less stellar inhabitants of the App Store. On an app that is feature-poor and proud of it, that doesn’t do push notifications, and that will NOT be showing up in an iPhone TV ad. So here we go …

Want to emulate the craptastic experience of using a (really) old school PC from the dog days of dial-up internet? Oh yes folks – there is an app for that, and it’s sure to be ever so well received by PC fans who already think Mac and iPhone owners are a bunch of
Snarky Snarkheads. It’s called PCSim and it’s a very funny little novelty app.

It doesn’t do a heck of a lot – just as the PCs it’s imitating didn’t when they were around. Here’s what it does do though:

vomit smiley, boy02 smiley, vomit smiley, puke smiley, sick smileyOffers ‘realistic’ sound effects – from a loud, chugging hard drive to fan noises and
          even a modem dialing and handshaking.

Dial Up

vomit smiley, boy02 smiley, vomit smiley, puke smiley, sick smileyGives you a dreadfully slow bootup process with some special startup messages in
          DOS along the way.

          the internet, or try to launch a Windows game.

So there you have it – it’s an ugly, noisy, old school Windows PC right there on your iPhone. Marvelous. They should chuck this into one of those ‘I’m a PC’ ads – have someone out looking for an ‘old school dialup internet PC’, tell them if they find it they can keep it. 🙂

And if you need to find it, HERE is where it is in the App Store, priced at $0.99.
