It's time for everybody's favorite game show! No, it is not "Wheel of Fortune." No, not "Jeopardy." No! It is not "Family Feud."
Let me rephrase it for you once again. It's time for that wacky, wild game show that most have never heard of! It's "App or No App!" I will be your obnoxious host.
Here's how we play. I name an app that may or may not be real. If you think it is real, no matter where you are, scream out, "App!" If you think I made it up, you scream out, "No App!"
Are we ready? Are we excited? OK! Let's begin.
Today we are again focusing on smartphone apps. Surely you have heard the witty saying, "I've got an app for that!" Sadly, most of the time it's true, because there is truly an app for everything.
First up on "App or No App" is Annoy a Teen! This app allows you to play a high-frequency tone that can only be heard by younger generations. Wacky good fun for us old-timers.
Does this sound like a real app to you or did I just make it up? Yell it out! App or no app?
OK, stop yelling. It's real. Sadly, it only annoys teens and doesn't make them clean up after themselves or stop smarting off. Ah, but give those wacky techies time. I'm sure they'll invent an app like that. For my sake, hopefully it will be soon.
Are next app is iLickit. This app invites you to clean up a picture of a plate of food by licking your phone. Is this real? Yell it out! App or no app?

A little over a decade ago, federal prosecutors used keystroke logging software to steal the encryption password of an alleged New Jersey mobster, Nicodemo Scarfo Jr., so they could get evidence from his computer to be used at his trial.
