Cody finally likes the iPhone - especially on a night out

It's been a problem faced by youth across the world since the invention of under-age drinking laws: how to get served alcohol when under the legal age. For iPhone users who know what they're doing, this will no longer be a problem.

"I've managed to get hold of iD-Me," said Cody Buck, daughter of App World! editor, Mac Buck. "It's a great applelet, but I had to get it from the Dark App Store, as Apple refuse to host it."

According to Cody, the applelet has already got her into several clubs.

"My dad would freak," she said. "But I don't care. I'm have a good time. The app's dead easy to use. You take a picture of yourself, and choose which kind of ID you want. I've got a driver's licence, a student card and a FBI badge."

The iPhone 5's screen is the correct size for most identity cards, and with the screen being edge to edge, and very thin, it makes an ideal substitute.

"It's brilliant really," said Cody. "I tell the door staff that it like keep it in a protective case. They're stupid enough to believe it."

The high resolution screen makes the finished fake ID look very real, replicating even watermarks that withstand close scruitny. With ID cards from around the world replicated, including British Identity cards, the applelet has rapidly become one of the fastest illegal downloads on the iPhone, prompting Apple to try and block it.

"It's typical Apple," said Cody. "The moment I find an app that actually makes an iPhone worth having and Apple try and stop me having it. I blame my dad."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
