Coming straight out of Apple Core Labs and into an App Store near you is the latest in applelet based keep fit: iThigh.
"I'm not a woman," said App World! editor Mac Buck. "I never have been. But I'm told that many woman detest cellulite. For years I thought cellulite was a low weight American mobile phone. Apparently not."
The iThigh app is strapped to a thigh using the Apple iPhone Thigh Strap (sold separately). The vibrate function is then used to massage away cellulite. The iPhone has to be put screen down on skin, otherwise the amoled screen cannot detect how well it's working, and increase or decease the vibrations appropriately.
"Apple Core have really thought this through," said Buck. "For most people, one iPhone is enough. For those lucky, lucky people - like me - who have two or more iPhones, they can do both legs at the same time."
Storming up the App Download Chart within days of it's release, it is suspected that many users are finding alternate uses for the app.
"A variable speed vibrate function that checks on how smooth the skin is underneath?" said Buck. "I can think of at least three other uses for that, which don't involve cellulite. I might download it now."
The applelet also runs on Apple's iPad (both the original and the iPad2), for ladies with larger thighs.
"My ex-wife could have done with the iPad2 version running on her backside," said Buck. "I might still be with Fraze if her ass didn't look like an orange peel."
