Wait for it…
You are supposed to help your own little homeless fella live, like he’s some kind of 2010 Tamagotchi.
The reason why I ask if it’s real is that someone’s already done it as a spoof (a cursory check on t’internet would have found that out pretty quickly).
And the name: iHobo.
We don’t call homeless people ‘hobos’. That’s what they did in depression-era America.
Besides, even if we did, it’s a pejorative term, making this kind of like creating an iSpazz app where you can help a mentally handicapped person dribble his soup a bit less, then donate to Mencap.
(Thanks for the spot, A.)
UPDATE: it’s real, all right…
And it’s in the ‘entertainment’ category of the iTunes App store, not ‘education’.
