We probably remember the first time the App store appeared with some incredible apps for the iPhone. And the first thing we did with our iPhone is downloaded some of those apps. Sure, there were some of us trying some great things that still stand today. Though many of the most popular apps may seem silly today, they had once made our wildest fantasies come to life. Here is a list of the best apps that have lost popularity over time.
Enjoy beer on your iPhone. This hilarious visual of tipping the glass (iPhone) back and watching the liquid disappear is strikingly real. Thanks to the iPhone sensors and our spare time.
Lightsaber apps have been popular on the iPhone ever since the App store appeared. Lightsaber Unleashed was a free alternative to the essential app. Though the app lacks dueling mode it sports the same features as other Lightsaber apps. This app isn’t a true game, but as a novelty it can provide some fun moments for any true Star Wars fan.
Digital photography was never so amazing. Create and share beautiful photography with Hipstamatic. It uses the iPhone’s camera to allow the user to shoot square photographs, to which it applies a number of software filters to make the images look as though they were taken with an antique film camera.
4. Tap Tap Revenge
Tap Tap Revenge was the most addictive, adrenaline filled game on the App store.kThe original game, Tap Tap Revolution was one of the earliest titles for the iPhone. After the resignation of its CEO, Bart Decrem, Tapulous, original developer of the Tap Tap series announced on its Facebook page that “it no longer makes sense for us to maintain the Tap Tap franchise” due to the changing mobile and music markets”.
5. More Cowbell
More Cowbell lets you rock out to some cow bell action just like Will Ferrell in the memorable SNL skit. Built-in cowbellometer and online rankings let you see how you stack up with the rest of the people in your city.
6. Koi Pond
The developers describe their creation:
Imagine gazing into a pond of crystal clear water. Picture bright, playful koi swimming through its shallow depth. So close… Can you touch them?
You run your fingers across the cool surface of the pond. Water ripples away from your touch. The koi, disturbed, dart away. Only to quickly forget and swim close to you once more…”
Cinemagram was undoubtedly a simple app to create and share moving photos. Moving photos are half-photos, and a half video- Amaze your friends with this wonderful art. Cinemagram’s animated-GIF output isn’t so great: If you’re viewing them on anything bigger than a mobile device, they can look like a muddled mess. So even though Cinemagram is much more versatile than Vine in terms of features, Vine is the popular kid at the mobile-video-app party.
The updated graphics, perfect controls and Wi-Fi multi-player mode made this Super Monkey Ball one of the most additive and compelling games out there. The over-sensitivity was a problem that many players had complained about.
9. Bubble Wrap
If you enjoy popping bubbles, you owe it to yourself to get this app. There’s not too much that can be said about bubble wrap. At the end of the day, Bubble Wrap was a great way to kill some free time and even let off some steam. You may end up “breaking your mouse button” while it’s a bit addicting and starts off minimized.
