If you’ve just spent up to £600 on a new Apple Watch you’d expected it to come singing and dancing and yes, even farting, right?
Well Apple doesn’t quite see it that way and have banned an ingenious app called Fart Watch from its app store, which just days after the Apple Watch’s launch boasts over 3,000 apps for the company’s first wearable.
Threats were made to ban any offensive apps submitted for the Apple Watch and it’s clear that Apple will follow through on its promise. Cult of Mac broke the news when it got wind of Apple’s outrageous policy on flatulence based apps and posted some of the terms that were quoted to the developers of Fart Watch regarding their britches breaching software:
2.11 – Apps that duplicate Apps already in the App Store may be rejected, particularly if there are many of them, such as fart, burp, flashlight, and Kama Sutra Apps
8.1 – Apps must comply with all terms and conditions explained in the Guidelines for Using Apple Trademarks and Copyrights and the Apple Trademark List
We noticed that your Apple Watch app is primarily a fart app. We do not accept fart apps on Apple Watch.
It’s a bum deal for the developers who pushed so hard to release the innovative Fart Watch which would allow the touchscreen of the Apple Watch to be used as a remote detonator for realistic bottom burps. These would be unleashed via a strategically placed iPhone which would play the high quality trump through its speakers – a magnificent use of both high end gadgets, we think you’ll agree.
After selling the Apple Watch in just six fashionable outlets worldwide on Friday its maker sadly doesn’t share our humour and we won’t be seeing (or hearing) that Fart Watch has been launched alongside the more sophisticated apps such as The Economist, NYTimes and British Airways on the App Store any time soon.
