Ugly Meter Threatening to Dethrone Angry Birds Space as Top Selling App

The not-so-friendly iPhone app Ugly Meter has climbed its way to the top of the app charts recently. It's unknown why the face rating app is so popular, but it's currently listed as the third best selling app after Angry Birds Space and Flick Home Run in the iTunes App Store.

iPhone Applications

The application scans a persons face before dishing out a 1 to 10 "ugly" rating along with nasty comments like: "Wow you're ugly, is your doctor a vet?". The Daily Mail tested the app's ugly rating ability by using celebrities like Cheryl Cole and Angelina Jolie. Cole scored a 4.2 while Jolie scored a 2.0 along with the positive comment: "You're so hot you make the sun jealous." However, David Cameron (7.0) scored slightly better than Brad Pitt (8.0).

Report: iPhone 5 to be Longer and Thinner With New Dock Connector and No Teardrop Design

iLounge's Jeremy Horwitz has learned new details about Apple's next generation iPhone. Horwitz claims that Apple is ditching the rumored “teardrop-shaped iPhone 5” for a longer and thinner glass-bodied design. According to Horwitz, the new iPhone will be made partially from Gorilla Glass 2, and feature a flat, not curved, metal panel on the rear of the phone.

Next Generation iPhone 2012

The iPhone 5 (or iPhone 6) will be longer and thinner than the iPhone 4 and 4S measuring at 125mm by 58.5mm by 7.4mm - that's 10mm longer and 2mm thinner than the current models.

"The change in height will include a lengthening of the prior 3.5” screen to roughly 4” on the diagonal. As the new iPhone won’t widen, this appears to confirm that Apple will change the new iPhone’s aspect ratio for the first time since the original iPhone was introduced in 2007, adding additional pixels to the top and bottom of the screen. A change of this sort took place between the fourth and fifth generations of the iPod nano, but didn’t impact any third-party software."
