  4. 4. PocketHeat99 centsThis app was originally marketed as away to warm your hands during thewinter month by making your iPhoneoverheat by over-clocking the CPU andaccelerometer.For some reason, people pointed outthat wasn’t a super idea. Now, for 99cents it only simulates a heater – no heatis given off.Luckily, I still have a BlackBerry to warmmy hands.

But if you want helpwatermelon shopping, there’s alwaysthe Melon Meter.Turn on the $1.99 app and hold it nextto the melon as you give the fruit a tap.Based on the sounds, you’ll be toldwhether it’s ready to eat or not.After all, melons don’t grow on trees.Do they?
