Apps with Ulterior Motives

This halloween season we're looking at apps with skeletons in their closet - thinly disguised moral motives hidden from view with a slight of marketing. Trick or treat!

Gran Text Auto

a free game for iOS

Here you're put in the passenger seat and tasked with replying to your savvy granny's texts one by one, letter for letter - emoji included!

If that weren't challenging enough, you also have to simultaneously steer granny clear of her fellow road-goers by tilting left or right as you type.

Barmy and hard-to-beat, there are ultimately no winners in this game - a smart and simple one-thumb fable about the dangers of texting at the wheel.

Take it for a test drive!

Tampon Run

a free game for iOS

Andy and Sophie, high school students in NYC, built Tampon Run as their final project on the Girls Who Code programme last summer.

Bored of social stigma surrounding menstruation, they decided to turn taboo on its head by teasing the violent video game market with a hero who beats up period-shaming villains with tampons.
 

Overnight they attracted blogosphere buzz, were soon summoned for a TEDx talk and recently won this year's Webby People's Voice Award.

What will they ever come up with next?
 
Give it a go!

Jump aboard!
