From iFart to iSperm: Apple Apps Go Highbrow

isperm1.jpgIt wasn’t mentioned in Mac’s official software update, but iPhone (and iPod Touch) users can now download one of the most…titillating applications yet: iSperm.

To play, you tap, shake, and tease the phone to guide an individual sperm down a “fallopian tube” in the race to fertilize an egg. The Mobigem game, now available for $0.99 on iTunes, is designed to demonstrate the stiff competition a sperm faces when it is released into the race for fertilization.

Strange, perhaps—though the title of most promiscuous iPhone app should probably be saved for its use as a personalized sex toy.
