No doubt in response to the popular ‘iFart Mobile’ application, the folks at Shining Karma (powered by CXR) have developed their own take on the idea… and have called it ‘The Fartbox’. Lovely, just lovely.
The Fartbox does everything you’d expect. Select different icons to produce different farting noises… or punch up the ‘Fartopedia’ for information on the history of farting and more. The app even supports 5 languages, so this is a truly ‘worldwide’ app When I first noticed the different language support, I thought ‘Hmmmm, I wonder how they translated the farts into different languages?’ (bad joke).
At any rate, if nothing else The Fartbox is actually really polished and well done. You can pick it up for $1.99 in the App Store (iTunes Link Alert!). If you’d like to do a heads up ‘fart comparison’, you can always check out iFart Mobile for only $0.99 in the App Store (iTunes Link Alert).
Best of luck to Shining Karma and their efforts to take a piece of the ‘Fart App’ market away from ‘iFart’. (sigh).
