Alright, an iPhone App that is definitly going te cause horror stories: Friend Book

… Is it me or is this idea just bad:

Here is an except about what Friend Book does:

The coolest feature without a doubt is the new “Handshake”: put two iPhones running Friend Book together, shake them up and down, and the personal contact information of the phones’ owners will be beamed through the net to the paired phones. Handshake doesn’t work through a device-to-device connection, but instead passes location data back to Tapulous’ servers – two shaking phones in the same location means it’s time to swap information.

Okay….. is it just me, or is this idea just bad? If I see to people shaking their phones together, I can shake mine too and see if I can’t leach of a few contacts. No to mention “Wii” syndrom where iPhones will be flying out of people’s hands. I’m sorry, but this “feature” seems just crazy to me.

  1. Looks like a severe case of “Look-What-I-Can-Do-itis”, iPhone style.
