In Pictures: 15 of the App Store's most bizarre offerings

Exactly why do we need an app for that?

Fake Friends Ever wonder if your friends are as loyal as they seem? Fake Friends ($1) is here to set things straight. Use this camera app to take a picture of a friend or group of friends, and then look at the image to see who has your back and who will throw you under the bus. The imposter friends will have a large 'FAKE!' scribbled across their forehead. How the app determines who’s real and who isn’t, we may never know. Though the app description pings its detections as “fairly accurate,” a warning proclaims that the app is actually “for entertainment only and does not represent a real detector of friendship.” Maybe your iPhone is really the fake friend here.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
