“Because We Can…” Part 1

On June 27, 2008

Welcome to the first installment of "Because We Can…"

"Because We Can…" is all about those little apps that are entirely useless but are created…well… because we can…

No real function.

No real utility.

No real purpose other than those first few seconds where you think "Wow this is cool!" and then never use it again.

And the first "Because We Can…" goes to…


ObjectGraph’s Retro Phone Application for iPhone.

Do you miss it taking three minutes to dial a number?

Do you miss the joint pain that comes from trying to dial in for concert tickets over and over and over again?

Do you long for the day when the electronic voice says- "Please enter the first four letters of your party’s name and then hit pound" and you can’t because… there is no "#" button?

If you answered "Yes" to any of these then RetroPhone is for you!

Use it once and then never again because… there is a reason we moved on to touchtone phones!!

Sure the app is pretty much useless but, hey, it is cool to play with once.

"Why create such an app", you might ask– Because We Can!
