Making an iOS app about Steve Jobs? Think different, Apple says

Philip Michaels | March 20, 2014
Apple reportedly won't OK Steve Jobs-themed offerings for its App Store, and the mobile world is a gloomier place because of that

Keynote: Steve Jobs Edition: This mobile add-on to Apple's presentation software comes preloaded with templates of Steve Jobs's most famous presentations so that you can either replicate his spellbinding style--"Everyone, on any slide where it says 'New iPhone,' just pretend that it reads 'Mid-Year Sales Campaign' instead"--or steal all of his ideas for your own. This app would be extremely popular among Samsung executives.

What Would Steve Wear: Don't waste valuable time each morning stressing over how to dress. Just launch this app, and within seconds, it will plot out your wardrobe for you. ("Black shirt. Jeans. Again.")

How to Tim Cook Everything: The well-received cookbook app gets an Apple-sized twist, as Steve Jobs's successor promises you a delicious meal sometime in the next 12 to 18 months. Sadly, the app is notoriously tight-lipped about what ingredients you'll need until right before dinner.

Flappy Steve: Well, it seems like the popular thing to do these days. Plus in this version, you yell at the pipes to get out of your way. And they'll listen, if they know what's good for 'em.
