App Your Fridge: iPhone App Magnets

A few years back, my wife and I bought our first house, and it didn’t come with any appliances with the exception of a stinky dishwasher and a crappy stove. As a result, we had to go out and buy everything new, which cost a pretty penny and ticked me off quite a bit. I didn’t care about most of the items – as long as they weren’t too expensive – but I did want a nice fridge. We ended up paying a good chunk of change for this gloss black Samsung model, with lots of cool cabinets and drawers. I was happy.

For months, we didn’t have anything on that obelisk, it just functioned. Then the magnets started creeping into place. First they were small yellow ones, then big ugly ones. Now I can barely see the damned fridge underneath all of the things stuck to it. Drives me nuts.

We have ugly magnets, not cool ones like these here. They’re the App Magnets, produced by Jailbreak Toys. Honestly, I don’t know how other to describe these, so let’s let Jailbreak do the hard work.

Whatever you want to do…  There’s an app for that.  That’s right.  Whether you want to buy movie tickets, read the news, write a review, pay a tip, catch a taxi, or even train your dog,  there’s an app for that.  But what if you want to hang a photo on the fridge?  Or leave a note on the microwave?  Or save that Chinese take-out menu in a place where you can’t lose it?  When it came to certain old-school tasks, the apps were coming up short.  A little reverse innovation was needed.  Well, good news, everyone… Now there’s an app for that, too.

Oh look, they used the “there’s an app for that” phrase. Twice. That’s not overused or anything. Regardless, these are pretty cool little things, and they’re not expensive either. Just $12.99 for the whole deal. Buy them now or risk having stupid magnets on your fancy fridge.
