10 Off-the-wall iPhone Apps

Jared is cute. Jared is yellow. Jared is also is a lousy singer. What's more, Jared's mouth does not appear to have any relationship with the sounds (calling it music would be generous) he's emitting. Launch the app and Jared begins to "sing." A Guatemalan folk song, no less. Try as he might, singing is clearly not Jared's strong suit. He will sing for as long as you let him, which in most cases is unlikely to be very long at all.

Despite his nearly complete lack of talent, the fact that Jared presses on, putting whatever small amount of skill he posses into the song, is endearing. You may find yourself listening time and time again. On the other hand, you may not.
