I mean...I don't mean to be mean but is this seriously an app or is this some kind of joke. The pictures look pretty cool but ROFLZ plugging the oil spill? I think a better idea would be to make something much moe interesting than this related to the same topic then sell it for 1.99 and say that your giving 1$ from every purchase to help clean up the oil. You can donate it to some of those companies cleaning it up.

Does the dev think this situation is a laughing matter, or are they trying to create controversy for free promotion? Or both?


Either way, this is sad and pathetic.

I agree. This isn't supposed to be funny. And he said "BP Oil spill is your opportunity to participate in water pollution elimination without much effort."

Pollution elimination takes actual work, not tapping on an ipod because it tells you to or else "more otters will die."

I suppose thatís a kind of fun idea to make this app helping the ocean ehehehe. Thatís good that at least someone is concerned about the causes of awful oil spill. Good way to draw the attention of people to the really existing big problem of the recent time when the bp oil spill occurred. Hope anyone will really donate to that as Iíve done.

I'm guessing it gets pulled. If this is the devs. attempt at being funny they did a terrible job.

Downloading now. Love timely political/newsworthy apps. I think this is poking more fun at the ineptness of BP and others than it is at the gravity of the situation.
