    Apple: ‘We do not accept fart apps on the Apple Watch’

    Apple doesn’t want fart apps on the Apple Watch. Who knew? Photo: Fart Watch

    Those of you who were hoping the Apple Watch would usher in a new era of flatulence apps, prepare to be disappointed: Apple has already rejected the first app that serves no purpose other than to allow people to make fart sounds from their wrist.

    Back in March, we reported on Fart Watch, the first Apple Watch fart app. Like a glorified whoopee cushion, the idea was that you put your iPhone underneath someone’s seat cushion, then used your Apple Watch as a remote to let a fart rip by pushing a big blinking “Fart” button on your wrist.

    “Sadly,” it appears that Fart Watch, and by extension other farting apps, are not welcome on the App Store. The developer of Fart Watch reached out to us to let us know that Apple had rejected his app, for the following reasons:

    2.11 – Apps that duplicate Apps already in the App Store may be rejected, particularly if there are many of them, such as fart, burp, flashlight, and Kama Sutra Apps

    8.1 – Apps must comply with all terms and conditions explained in the Guidelines for Using Apple Trademarks and Copyrights and the Apple Trademark List

    2.11 Details

    We noticed that your Apple Watch app is primarily a fart app. We do not accept fart apps on Apple Watch.

    Not that the world needs another farting app, but it’s surprising to see Apple taking such a strong stance on the matter when there are so many fart apps on the iPhone. Then again, it’s hard to sell something like the Apple Watch as a luxe fashion accessory when celebrities like Pharrel and Beyoncé are using their Apple Watches to fart on command.

    In the meantime, the developer of Fart Watch says he is already planning another Apple Watch business: WatchPops, a type of bling for your Apple Watch strap. You can sign up to be notified when it launches here.

    Steve Jobs himself banned fart apps 10 years ago. "We have over 250,000 apps in the App Store. We don't need any more Fart apps. If your app doesn't do something useful or provide some form of lasting entertainment, it may not be accepted."
  4. I guess I won't be getting the watch since I can't get fart apps. What a deal breaker.
