U-G-L-Y, you ain’t got no alibi.  You ugly.  Your momma say you ugly.  If you’re iPhone sang that little ditty after the ugly meter app analyzed your facial structure we’d really know that science is just a few short days away from colonizing Mars.  As it stands, we have to settle for catch phrases based on how hot this app thinks your picture is.  We’re still awaiting official word, but we now believe the iPhone covers every single possible human social interaction.  Next to the no drunk dialing app, this has to be the most practical bar/party app ever invented. In a nutshell, you take a picture of someone’s face with your iPhone.  The app scans it, and spits out an ugliness score.  The higher the score you get, the uglier you are.  The app harkens back to the old hotornot.com website where people could upload their photos to a website and random strangers from around the world could rate their hotness on a scale of 1-10.   My friends and I would try and catch each other in the worst possible shape and take pictures and submit them to that website.  HotorNot.com was immensely popular in its day, and it seems that people still love seeing how hot a random person or machine thinks they are.  The ugly meter is currently in the top 10 of apps downloaded from the Apple app store. Next up will be a phone accessory that does your hair and makeup for you so you can score better on the ugly meter.  Or perhaps someone will come up with a phone case with a built in fan so your hair will be blowing in the wind for your headshot. For those on Android devices, you will be stuck trying to decide if you really are attractive or if your grandma is just saying that because you’re related.
