Apple computers hinted at the forthcoming release of their iSmell app for iPhone4 and iPad last week when they released the Eye-Eye iris scanner and provided more details this week.
Arthur Ramsbottom at the Apple Research Centre in Cleckheaton, Yorkshire told the press conference that the iSmell app will detect farts and identify who did them. Once activated the app will sound a tone if it detects the trace gases and then can be used as a locator to identify the culprit. The app will sound a louder and louder tone, the closer you get to the gas emitter.
The app is aimed primarily at women and Human Resource departments in large corporations, and will work in cars, elevators and trains.
Ramsbottom said "The app was originally called Big Jobs after the Apple founder Steve Jobs, but was changed after market research said this would be confused with the job site Monster.com"
