4 Irresponsible Smart Phone Apps

Written by Liam Grant. Posted in Gadgets

Technology is an amazing thing that can make us more efficient and our lives easier. Over the last few years, smartphones have become a must-have for many people. Their fancy apps help ups advance as a society, but sometimes they can go horribly wrong. These are some of the most irresponsible smart phone apps ever made: [Not a valid template] Popular Translator Gives Wrong Information Word Lens has been advertised as the translation software of the future. According to the demo video, the app is a translation miracle: you simply have to focus the smartphone’s camera on something written in a foreign language and the app will instantly translate it. This way tourists will be able to have a rudimentary understanding on a foreign language while abroad. However, the app has many problems, ranging from misinforming you on traffic laws to comical broken English translations. Moreover, the authors admit that they didn’t consult someone fluent in Spanish when they created the app. Word Lens translates individual words instead of phrases and can misinform you about medicine labels, safely regulation and what you’re eating while on vacation. Cry Translator Helps you Comfort Baby Becoming a parent is not easy, and many parents would be grateful for an app that helps them understand why their baby is crying. Cry Translator is an app that after analyzing 10 short seconds of crying it can tell parents what the baby needs – by guessing. Trusting your baby’s life with a phone app seems a little bit irresponsible, but if the leader of this technology, Dr. Antonio Portugal Ramirez says it is accurate, who are we to disagree? Moreover, users reported that recording the same cry twice results in different results, or that the app encourages parent to overfeed babies. Electronic Key App Opening doors is very difficult, as you must find the key in your pocket and insert it into a tiny hole. However, KISI plans to change all that and make your life easier via smartphone technology. The company’s digital key uses an electronic interface between the door that keep your home safe and your phone. For example, if you are away and someone wants to enter your apartment, you can activate the app and open the door. Opening the door without actually seeing who is in front of it can be very irresponsible, and losing your phone can mean losing your furniture. Apps like these only serve to complicate our lives instead of doing the opposite, so we have to know how to avoid them.

Skin Cancer App A cancer diagnosis is like winning the disease lottery, so bodily growths easily make people freak out. In order to help people address their fears about skin cancer in the middle of the night, developers created apps that diagnose skin cancer. All you have to is photograph the growth and compare it to actual cancer. Free versions such as UMSkinCheck can analyze your exterior and use a visual algorithm to provide an automatic assessment. Apparently the apps can identify cancer across 188 images of lesions. The worse app has a success rate of 6.8 percent, making it the most irresponsible in the family. The best app with 98.1 percent accuracy cheated by sending images to certified dermatologists. Even if these apps seem like a quick solution, they can’t replace doctors.
