One of iPhones most popular apps is iDrag Paper, which allows the user to unrol] a roll of toilet paper on their iPhone screen. Both cats and small children enjoy this activity in real life, but I don't think many of them have iPhones. A friend of mine tried to convince her young granddaughter that unrolling a picture of toilet paper on her phone would be just as fun as unrolling the real deal. The child was unconvinced and I don't think cats would fall for it either. The Android phone has the Weight Loss Coach app which assigns simple daily tasks to help you create a healthier lifestyle, then tracks how well you're doing right up until the moment you get annoyed with it and toss your Android into the dumpster behind the donut shop. iPhone's HangTime app measures how long you and your device take to go up and come back down. This can be useful information if you're a high jumper or a pole vaulter. But apparently there are those who, rather than putting their phone in their pocket while they jump, throw it directly into the air. That seems like cheating to me. Also stupid. And unless you're a really good catcher, it could make all your other apps useless.
