With World Cup, Vuvuzela Apps Flood App Stores
Both the App Store and the Android Market are overflowing with vuvuzela apps. One of them, Vuvuzela 2010, has been downloaded more than 750,000 times. It is currently the most popular free app in the Entertainment category. Another, Virtual Vuvuzela, is the seventh most popular free sports app. However, they're not all that highly rated, 2.5 stars for the former and 1.5 stars for the latter.
Part of the problem might be that it's hard to get enough "oomph" from the speaker on an iPhone or Android device. A comment on one Android app, World Cup Virtual Vuvuzela, gave it 4 stars, but said, "Wish it could be louder and more annoying."
