Similar to fart apps, there are a ton of Self-Help apps for the iPhone. Everything from quit smoking – to lose weight … From stop snoring – to improve self esteem and many more. Guess developers figured out it’s fairly easy to leverage a person’s shortcomings to make a buck … but we digress. Anyways, if you have a deficiency, the iPhone is your savior and can help fix it. And really, nothing is impossible to overcome with the iPhone – as we proved by our recent report – the iPhone can help prevent balding.

drunk444 So a nifty little self-help app caught our eye … myBadHabits from BeblowSquared. The purpose of myBadHabits is to visually monitor your progress at eliminating bad habits. The user enters their bad habit (or habits for the really jacked up) and every day, updates the app with their daily result. The app then displays a very nice progress chart tracking the number of days you are bad habit free. Especially motivating is the green and red status bars – if the user is “slipping”, a red status bar is displayed as a constant reminder that you are a loser.

Overall, a sound concept and we’ve seen it enough to become believers … the iPhone can help solve any problem life delivers. And it seems like the folks at BeblowSquared are believers as well … just look at these claims …

Whoa … time out … rewind … “Do you drink too much and wake up on your front lawn?” … huh? Ok – the iPhone may be able to prevent hair loss … but keeping it real … if you are in the habit of waking up on your front lawn after being completely obliterated from alcohol – well my friend, you have some serious issues that no iPhone will be able to fix. Better to save the buck ninety nine and put it towards checking yourself into the Betty Ford Clinic.

robbing11 Ok, next item … “Do you borrow money from your kids to support your gambling habit” … huh? We don’t care Apple approves … there will never be an app that will help you overcome your gambling addiction if it’s to the point where you are stealing from their kids. Try this … google “gambling addiction” and click on the first result entitled “Gamblers Anonymous” … the rest is up to you.

But here’s the kicker – so obviously myBadHabits attempts to help people kick whatever destructive habit they may have. Fair enough – props to BeblowSquared for the effort. But when you touch the Information button within the app, a screen appears of other apps available for purchase from BeblowSquared. And the first option for purchase, the myParlay app – an app that assists you in sports betting. Uh – ok … BeblowSquared might want to mix in a Beer Efficiency app which helps you get drunk as quickly as possible. LOL … indeed … myParlay and Beer Efficiency, the perfect complimentary apps to myBadHabits!
