image for Hairy legs? There's an app for that
The iShave has an optional accessory costing fifteen hundred dollars

The latest applelet to take Apple's App Store by storm is iShave.

"This is a cunning device," said developer Harry Chin. "It uses the inbuilt vibrate function to rev the phone up to the maximum vibration it can. This lets the connector port act like a combination epilator and razor."

This new applelet takes advantage of the fact that a lot of people have previously complained that the connector port is a little sharp.

To make the iShave even more realistic, it comes with a repeating MP3 that makes it sound like an electric shaver.

"It's a little bit anachronistic," said Chin. "But we figured that as the camera makes a little shutter noise, like no real camera has made since 1978. Also our other app that makes the phone really hot, iBoil, makes a sound like a whistling kettle, we figured it made sense."

The new app can cause carpal tunnel syndrome in people who use it too much, so the designers have a built in cut out function.

"A lot of people are turning that feature off," said editor of App! Magazine, Mac Buck. "They're risking their hands to get a full shave. With the feature turned on, you can barely shave your upper lip or bikini line. So I guess it makes sense."

Not everybody is happy with the new applelet. "I'm not happy with the new applelet," said one unhappy user of the applelet. "I tried to wet shave with it, and my phone is ruined."
