Why? I don't understand it. I do not get this trend at all! LOL I feel like this is someone's way of hopping on a trend and earning from it. I mean, look at them downloads too! And it gets good reviews!? I am not going to put this on my phone.
...I will probably try it later just to see how stupid it is for myself!
I tried it myself just to see what it does. I find it oddly satisfying. Does it serve any real purpose? No, but it is fun to mess around with when you are sitting around waiting for something or someone.
This is not something I would waste my time on. I don't even think the real ones are anything worth even talking about. I don't get the trend and view it as a waste of money. Plus with the malware issues going on, I would not go downloading any old app either.
davechaos I was going to mention this as well. With all the malware crap going around, is it really worth risking your privacy and information for a silly app that has no legitimate value?
davechaos This is also true. It can be an easy way to end up with malware on your device. I can bet that 50+ and under 18 users are the most vulnerable because they simply don't know better.
I was playing with one of these apps on my phone and I know it is dumb, but I quite like it. I just mess around with it when I am stuck in traffic. I made sure the one I DL'd was clean as well.
I didn't even know such a thing was made but I guess I am glad. lol
Like others have said above, I think it is pointless and not worth the risk with all the malware threats going around right now.
Seems silly to me. I wont lie and say I didn't almost download it just to see why it had good reviews but I am proud to say I did not in fact do it. lol I do have 3 spinners myself and enjoy them so I see not point in using a fake one on my phone.
I downloaded one of them just because my mother wanted to see what I was talking about. She ended up wanting it on her phone. I am not even sure why. lol
LOL Had no idea this was even a thing! I am going to have to see what they look like for myself.
My niece had one of these on her phone. She is 14. I asked her why and she basically said she don't know it is just cool to have. So I think that is why people are downloading these. Cause it is a trend. Nothing more.
Stupid trend but a fantastic idea. Think of all the ad revenue one of these apps could bring in from people accidentally clicking the ads while spinning their fake spinners. lol
I wish I knew how to make apps, I would make one for sure.
I'm just not getting the whole fad I suppose, lol.
