Just one year after making worldwide news as the iTunes AppStore’s #1 best-selling application, iFart Mobile continues to dominate the news and blogosphere as the most-often referred to application in the world. The novelty application that has brought laughter to millions of people in sixty countries is celebrating by offering a free update and Christmas Fart Pack to all iFart owners.
The Christmas Fart Pack is available in the iFart Store, featured in the latest free update to iFart Mobile. This special holiday pack contains ten new festive flatulations including Jingle Smells, Blitzen’s Bomber, Snow Melter, Not So Silent Night and six more.
“iFart continues to appear in mainstream media, be used by celebrities and is referenced as the de facto novelty app for the iPhone,” said InfoMedia, Inc. CEO Joel Comm. Comm continued, “From Lance Armstrong and Robin Williams to The New York Times and The Daily Show, iFart has become a cultural phenomenon that continues to provide laughs to iPhone and iPod owners around the world. We say ‘thank you’ to our customers by providing this special holiday gift with the latest update”
iFart made headlines around the world last Christmas when Joel Comm made sales figures public on his blog at www.JoelComm.com. NBC, TechCrunch, Venture Beat, The Today Show, CNN Money, Mashable, The Washington Post and Wired Magazine were among the dozens of media outlets, tech sites and blogs that featured the app, touting the fact that iFart sold nearly 40,000 copies on Christmas Day 2008.
Featuring a number of hilarious original fart sounds and original features such as security fart, sneak attack, record-a-fart and fart-a-friend, iFart continues to lead the way of over 200 copycat applications in the iTunes AppStore. The newest feature included in the latest update is Fart Buddies, which allows iFart owners to send fart sounds to their friend’s iPhone whenever they desire.
[UPDATE – Our Movie Fart Pack has now been approved!]
iFart is a big fan of the iTunes store for obvious reasons.
iFart continues to be a big seller and our fans are rabid for our product. Let’s face it. iFart is responsible for millions of laughs all over the world!
So we’ve been hard at work on implementation of some great new content. In fact, we have created three unique fart packs containing original farts all themed for each pack.
We were disappointed to receive this email from Apple’s app reviewers this week…
Thank you for submitting iFart Mobile – #1 Fart Machine UPDATED! 2.20 and its associated In App Purchases to the App Store. We’ve reviewed iFart Mobile – #1 Fart Machine UPDATED! 2.20 and its associated In App Purchases and determined that we cannot post this version of your iPhone application to the App Store because it contains content that ridicules public figures and is in violation of Section 3.3.14 from the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement which states:
“Applications may be rejected if they contain content or materials of any kind (text, graphics, images, photographs, sounds, etc.) that in Apple’s reasonable judgement may be found objectionable, for example, materials that may be considered obscene, pornographic, or defamatory.”
If you believe that you can make the necessary changes so that iFart Mobile – #1 Fart Machine UPDATED! 2.20 does not violate the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement, we encourage you to do so and resubmit it for review.
iPhone Developer Program
We’re having to rename our fart packs so that they don’t parody or spoof any celebrities, bands or movie titles.
So for the fart names that will never see the light of day, we thought we’d share them with you as we think they are pretty funny.
The Rock Band Fart Pack contained:
The Movie Fart Pack contained:
And The Celebrity Fart Pack contained:
We don’t believe Apple is singling us out as they appear to be applying these same policies to other apps as well.
It’s just a shame that this kind of parody humor is not allowed in the app store.
To our fans we say… don’t fret! The same brand new original farts will be available in a fart pack with more “terms & conditionfied” names.
