Fake Shower

The culmination of the app store ecosystem’s “an app for that” trend has been the creation of apps for the tiniest minutiae of life. This app is proposed to solve the problem of a noisy bathroom trip, in close quarters with someone you don’t want “privy” to your bathroom noises.

That alone isn’t enough to make this app weird. There are lots of apps that serve a niche purpose or social situation. Where this app gets tipped into weird territory is the “economy” tab, where you can track both the personal water savings, and the global water savings for which this app is responsible.

I found myself listening intently to the sound quality for some time before I realized that no matter how realistic the sound, nobody will actually be fooled by this app, because you will exit the bathroom dry and clothed. No matter, when it comes to fake shower sounds, whatever your reason, Fake Shower has you covered.
