More Toast/Pizza/Cupcakes..

I still fail to understand how these apps do so well..I mean sure its a novel idea, but I can't believe how many people buy/enjoy them. Its beyond me.

I hate how the Top 50 in the App Store is cluttered with useless apps like More Toast/Pizza/Cupcakes.

I know..I just don't understand it..I've looked at the screenshots..I've read reviews..I've tried my best to understand what the appeal is. I haven't made any progress. Lol

Is it women buying these things? Anyone here actually play one of them? Maybe it's kids. So many apps are in the top 50 because of the overwhelming child demographic for iPod Touch users. I wish the App Store had a top 50 for iPhones and a separate top 50 for iPod Touch. I think we would see a tremendous amount of differences.

I know for a fact my little brother wouldn't find putting topping on toast very riveting.

Wow, some more stereotyping would be appreciated.

Those apps are awesome. Well I only have More Toast though. I thought they were stupid at first too but one obscure virtual food app went free a while ago and it got me absolutely hooked. Don't knock it til you try it! Then again, I am a girl...

Not stereotypes in this case, facts. At least when it comes to the youth demographic. - These numbers come from Ad Mob's demographic research.

94% of iPhone owners are over the age of 18 and an astounding 74% of them are over the age of 25. On the other hand, the iPod Touch user base is nearly HALF (47%) composed of 13-17 year olds. Only 31% of its users are over the age of 25.

Not gonna lie, I own and enjoy more toast. It is really good for what it is, there is a ton of customization (like 15 things to toast, multiple toasters, multiple plates, etc) and like 50+ topping
