One of the great things about the iPhone (and the iPod Touch) is that there are so many ways you can use a smartphone now. With the thousands of applications available in the Apple iTunes store, there are so many ways to make your life easier right on your phone.
But some of these applications take ease to a new level of laziness. Here's five of them.
1. Blower: For those who are too lazy to clean up a bit of dust or to blow out his or her own birthday candles (Who passes up a free wish? A lazy person), there's actually an iPhone app to do this. Blower actually generates air and blows air from the speakers of your phone - because you can't actually do that by breathing in, puckering your lips and exhaling.
2. Remote: While it might being able to use your iPhone as a remote to your iTunes playlist might be useful for parties, I can definitely see a bunch of lazy people using the Remote app just because they don't feel like getting up off the couch to change the song or playlist.
3. Sound Grenade: Sometimes applications are a result of lazy creators. CrunchGear reported that this app was created within the span of an hour, and from someone who has met iPhone app developers, good applications take actual thought and work. With a touch of a button, Sound Grenade can create a mind-numbing noise to drive people away. You could also just yell at them.
4. Instrument-replicator apps: There are a ton of iPhone apps that resemble pianos, guitars, you name it. One popular one is Ocarina, which turns your iPhone into a flute, and you play it by blowing into the speaker, tilting the phone around and pressing dots around the touchscreen for notes. While these might be an asset those who actually play instruments and just want some extra practice on the road, this is no way to learn an instrument or assert that you actually know how to play one. Take some real lessons with a real instrument!
5. Pizza Hut: You can order a pizza and receive it without ever having to talk to anyone, pick up (a landline) phone or turn on your computer. It only requires a few taps of the index finger on a touchscreen and getting up to answer the door when the delivery person arrives - unless you can find someone to do that for you.
