    CharlieA-It`s also pretty legitimately innovative, since it was one of the very first full touch screen phones, and because of it`s multi-touch interface and use of the accelerometer.

    Also, no other phone matches it in sheer number of third party applications, or ease of installation/purchase/use of the applications.

    Just statin` the facts.

    well jared, if you want to state the facts, know that the iPhone WASN`T the first full touch screen phone, that is a common misconception. it was more like the 2nd or 3rd.

    secondly, plenty of phones have a butt-load of 3rd party apps, especially blackberries.

    finally, the ease of installation is the same on most any phone. my instinct is "Accept/deny" I accept and its installed. "Would you like to run the application" "Run/Continue what I was doing"

    you are clearly just a fanboi who is blind to other phones. even my apple obsessed family has accepted that there are plenty of phones out there comparable and better in some aspects. iPhone is terrible at its primary function, a phone.

    as far as this being the FIRST pointless app? there have been plenty more pointless ones, including the one posted here the other day, "iBoobs" or bewbs...

    Jared while I am not an apple fanboy like yourself I do have to say I agree with most of what you said. But as far as third party apps, the Blackberry has a much greater number and a majority of them are free, since RIM does not act like an overlord over their product.

    to the poster below me, I`m going to have to agree with you. While BlackBerry is a name brand, they don`t show off as much as Apple does. Which is why I`m proud to say I`m a satisfied BlackBerry curve owner.

    So, after the wonders of iPint enabling you to pretend to have beer, and iFart meaning you can pretend to fart (can also be used like a whoopee cushion. `Coz, er, they`re not old...), you can now pretend to have condensation. Errm, why?

    Still, if it`s free then I`ll try it once on my iTouch II, because it`s well made. Then never again, probably.

    Pointless though it may be, that`s actually really neat. It even has water droplets and all that.

    It would take a LOT of hard work to make something that realistic.

    And think about it this way: if the person who made this can make THIS now, imagine what he/she`ll be able to do after some practice.

    And karynLyn, I`ve used an iPod touc hand it`s a HUGE gimmick. A PSP can call real phones (get a camera addon + skype, pay $3 a month to get unlimited US + Canada calls), run WAY better games, store music and videos etc and it costs $160 (+ 2x16GB memory sticks = $260), access the Internet via a wireless connection, take pictures with said camera addon, and much more.

    You don`t get a touchscreen, but if you REALLY want an iPod touch because of that, you are beyond help.
    And don`t forget, Apple isn`t the only f**king company making touchscreen phones with applications.
