Let it Rip with iBee Farting

BlackBerry Fart Apps: If you watched College Humor's hilarious Cell Phone Reunion movie we posted to the blogs last night you might come away thinking that BlackBerry smartphones can't fart. That's not the case!! BlackBerry Fart apps are starting to stink up the CrackBerry App Store at an alarming rate. First, it was the Fart Machine - very basic, but it got the gas out for $2.99. Then came PhoneyFart, which for $1 less comes with a free trial of 20 minutes or 20 farts (brilliant). Then a free fart app popped up in the forums, Cippi the Farting Chipmunk. Cipi's not a built-for-BlackBerry app (ported over), so it kind of really stinks (doesn't use up the screen, navigation is a bit wonky and doesn't seem to run on the Storm) but the price is right for bargain farters who don't mind that this one may be requiring a wipe.

iBee Farting: That brings us to the next contender in the evolving battle for BlackBerry Fart App supremecy, iBee Farting. I haven't farted around with iBee Farting too much yet, but if you plan on having a fart app face off (a$$ off?!) with your iPhone-owning, fart-app loving friends, from my first impressions this is probably the BlackBerry fart app you'll want to go with.

iBee Farting features include:

  • Record your own sounds (farts / burps / other bodily noises), be creative! (not available on the Storm).
  • Adjustable Time Delay (5 to 30 seconds)
  • Random Fun Facts about Farts!
  • Preloaded with over 10+ farts and burps sounds
  • Shake and Fart (BlackBerry Storm only) - You can shake your BlackBerry Storm to make it fart!
  • Free 20 minute trial

iBee Farting is available for the Bold, Curve 8900 and Storm and sells for $1.99. I installed it on both my Bold and Storm. The built-in farts are pretty good (there's a couple of burps too), and on the non-Storm versions there is a fart recorder within the app so you can record and playback your own toots. Due to a known bug on OS4.7.0.75 on Storm's OS, you need to actually have OS4.7.0.99 installed for it to play sounds properly (see product page for details). A free trial is available, so you give that a go before you buy.

I think next week I'm going to put together a video shoot out of all the BlackBerry fart apps going butt to butt. I'm guessing there'll be a couple more out by then too! In the meantime, give them a go and post your feedback in the comments!
