'Firepower' iPhone App Lets You Vent Your Frustration

Do you ever have "one of those days?" You know, some jerk in an SUV cuts you off on the highway, or your co-worker's incessant chatter gets on your last nerve? For most of us, going postal just isn't an option, so we're left to stew with our frustrations. But now, a new iPhone app is giving you an outlet for all that built-up rage. According to Wired, 'Firepower' is like a real-life, first-person shooter. The app, which was developed by Magnificent Library, uses the iPhone's camera, and overlays a Gatling gun, target, and two "fire" buttons on the live view screen to make you feel like Duke Nukem (check out the video after the break). After paying $.99, just simply fire up the app, point, and shoot at whatever you'd like -- your desk, a boss, or, like the guy in the video below, your kids.

We don't want to stir the pot here, ourselves, but the idea behind 'Firepower,' not to mention its use of blood (albeit cartoony blood), will probably inspire some controversy. Then again, everyone knows that Internet addiction, not video games, breeds violence. [From: Wired]
