image for Apple launches iPhone app for lie detection
Knit an iPad today

Apple (NYSE:APPL) has revealed that it has been working on an app for the iPhone 4 and iPad which will detect lies and lying called the iLie.

The app will allow the user to connect the iPhone 4 or iPad to a telephone or to a microphone and the signal will be analysed. The app uses complex algorithms to detect faint fluctations, similar to stammers, in voice speech patterns and then will indicate if the subject is telling the truth or not.

Willy Fib, head of personnel at London Underground said this will be a boon to identify whether tube train drivers are throwing a sickie.

Apple's CEO Steve "Big" Jobs said that so far he has fired 74 R&D engineers for telling him lies about product development timescales.
