iPhone App of the Week – Mad Libs


Man do I remember these! Mad Libs were a favorite past time for us in the fifth grade. We would laugh hilariously as we dropped in ridiculous nouns, adjectives, verbs, etc. blindly into a short story and then read the account aloud. It was awesome. Now you can have that same fun right on your iPhone. If you are familiar with Mad Libs then using the app should be of no surprise to you. If you’ve never used Mad Libs they ask you for words based on their part of speech (noun, verb, adverb, etc.) then it takes those words and drops them into a story. the results are usually pretty funny. The app itself is free and the includes four Mad Libs to complete. To get more you can purchase them within the app. The free ones were able to make me chuckle (yeah, I’m 36 years old). Get it here from the iTunes store. To get a better idea check out the pictures below.
