This is one of those frightening stories that makes you wonder about the state of the world we live in. ComScore presented recently at the Mobile Games Forum in London, and within that presentation was the news that iPint (which is a beer/glass simulator for the iPhone, by Carling) is the most downloaded app in the UK!
Um hang on, rewind, start again?! The app, that people value the most for the iPhone (in the UK at least) is not a game (as such), it’s a simulator … of beer drinking!!?
As I said, one of those instances where you really have to wonder about what exactly the iPhone-owning populace in the UK were/are thinking – maybe it was the fact that you can drink 8 virtual pints without getting drunk (probably), or maybe they were just really enjoying the iPhone accelerometer – who knows, it’s a mystery.
If anyone can shed some light on this, please feel free to leave a comment 🙂
