Angry birds

Well, the most downloaded paid for app of 2010 has gone old skool. Yes, it’s an Angry Birds board game brought to you by Mattel…

The cards seem unduly complex.

The brutal simplicity of the swipe and smash iPhone app doesn’t quite come across here, but I’m sure legions of children (and kidults), will enjoy building and tearing down the monster holding structure…

Pikey? Why as the saying goes – there’s an app for that…

So shocked and appalled was I on the way to work this fine morning, I could have written to Anne Robinson.

I saw an ad on the tube this morning for wonga.com advertising short-term loans.

You know, the type a man in a dirty trench coat normally offers / sends his heavies to call in when you can’t afford to meet the repayments?

Well, it wasn’t so much the ad itself that bothered me. It was the fact that someone in the marketing department thought it’d be a good idea to have an i-phone app. I mean, WTF!?

Now, call me old-fashioned.

But for one thing, the targeting here. Well, it just seems a little off. Nay, a lot off.  I haven’t seen too many people on the bread line updating their status from TweetDeck, nor have I heard many adlanders in Charlotte St. say ‘Oooh, I’m a bit strapped this month Betty. Let me get some cash till pay-day before I get my next round in…’.

The world’s gone mad. Stark raving bonkers. How do they cash in when someone misses a payment. Virtual trench coat heavies???

Iain G. Morrison is a senior marketer in the British Tourism Industry. And would love to hear about stupid i-phone apps you have come across…
