Honey, It's Me Virtual Girlfriend

honeyitsme.jpg

Developer Nabix has created an app known as 'Honey, It's Me,' a virtual girlfriend. A Korean model posed for it and dictated over a hundred voice messages such as "good morning" and "time to wake up" to send out to your iPhone. Leader of the Nabix team Kim Yoon-Kak says that it was meant to "console the lonely." Considering that it averaged about 80,000 downloads per day before they started charging $1.99, that's a boatload of lonely. Only in Korean for now, the company has future plans for English, Chinese and Japanese versions.
