With the recent debut of its online App Store, Apple has opened the door to allow the iPhone to truly become an “everything-in-one” handheld device. With a few quick clicks you can check the weather in Berlin, watch highlights from the Giants-Patriots game from the night before and even get turn-by-turn directions to the new sushi place across town. But what about the person who wants to relive his or her childhood? Yes, there’s an application for that, too.
Coming soon from developer touchGrove is the LED Football App. For a single dollar you can transform your iPhone into the simplistic electronic football game that three decades ago provided parents a nifty way of keeping their kids occupied on long car trips.
What the game lacks in depth it more than makes up for in nostalgia. Plus, those who appreciate irony can enjoy turning one of the most technologically advanced handheld devices into one of the most primitive gadgets from days gone by.
