New iPhone App Releases Your Inner Zombie, Scans for Undead
August 5, 2010
(ChattahBox)—There’s nothing more enjoyable than a good apocalyptic zombie thriller. Zombies provide more bang for your entertainment buck than vampires and werewolves. Why? The zombie hordes are never-ending, driven by their blind insatiable hunger for human flesh and brains. To defeat them, survivors must band together. Killing zombies is as simple as blowing their heads off with a powerful shotgun. No arcane methods, such as a stake through the heart or silver bullets are needed. And there is always that poignant moment when a friend or family member becomes infected, and they plead to be put out of their misery before they start feasting on you.
Noted author and zombieologist Max Brooks, knows full well the power of a compelling zombie tale. He penned three of the best ones, “The Zombie Survival Guide,” “World War Z” and his latest, “The Zombie Survival Guide, Recorded Attacks.” Now, courtesy of Brooks and his publisher Random House, iPhone users can arm themselves with a Zombie Survival Guide Scanner app, to scan for infected flesh-eating neighbors. The cool app also zombifies any photo.
The zombie app is described on Apple’s iTunes site, as “The undead surround us. Infection rates are growing exponentially. How can you be sure who’s a zombie before they try to bite?” Good point.
Randon House offers more fun snark on Brook’s zombie app:
“We all know, the world we live in has become a scary place, and the global increase in zombie attacks is of major cause for alarm. Developed by bestselling author and noted zombieologist, Max Brooks, the Zombie Survival Guide Scanner iPhone App is the ideal zombie detector tool. Use your camera-enabled iPhone to scan friends and neighbors and determine their level of infection.”
“Don’t be foolish with your most precious asset — life. Hordes of zombies may be stalking you right now without you even knowing it. The Zombie Survival Guide Scanner iPhone App is your first line of defense in an undead world.”
Sounds like a tool you can’t live without.
