5 Terrible Apps (My opinion)
- Facebook Messenger
Facebook Messenger is an messaging app made for people who use Facebook on their devices which is really stupid because on the web version you can message freely without having to download this ridiculous app, When using this app it has many functionalities that only work with people who have downloaded the Facebook app which is create group calls as in audio or video calls, being able to send Emojis pictures, gifs. It will not work if someone has Facebook and not the app which is silly in my opinion. The Design of the app is a blue thunder bolt in a speech bubble is hidden message which tells us that it is a instant messenger app which is the only thing that makes sense when using this app.
Soundcloud is a ‘free’ music streaming app the reason why there is hyphens around free its because recently Soundcloud had an update where non members of the app isn’t allowed to listen to the full songs of official artists such as Rihanna, drake and Beyoncé this leaves you with underground songs, or rip offs from artist, also they have implemented advertisements in between songs which is pretty ridiculous. However you could start a career using this app by uploading your very own music or create compilations of songs or host a radio/podcast station. The design is cloud on a orange background which is pretty simple not too complicated.
- I am important
I am important is an app that makes you feel important this means that it allows you to create fake accounts and contacts to make you feel special no one should ever download this app it is sad and stupid, more importantly its a waste of your time.
- Send me to heaven
This app records how high you throw your phone up into the air, Which puts you onto the global records, this app is risky and stupid I mean if you have old phone you should try it pass time or if your rich just throw your phone and see what you get. their should be a iq requirement to see if your stupid to download this.
- Razor blade app
