My buddy Solver and I made an app. Okay, so that’s not quite true. I had a crazy idea for an app, and Solver did all the actual work to make it real.
We called it “Trumped Up Headlines,” and it’s a random, crazy-ass headline generator that produces results not unlike what you see on those Fake News websites conservatives go nuts for.
If you’re bored, and looking for a fun way to pass some time, grab the app from here
Don’t worry – it’s free, and not loaded with spam or other crap like that. Just a fun little thing we wanted to share.
Oh…and the headline above is true, btw.
We tried to put this on the Google Play store, and Google banned the app. Their stated reason, and I quote, was because it violates the sensitive events policy.
So we did some investigating, and here’s what Google’s Sensitive Events policy has to say:
We don’t allow apps that lack reasonable sensitivity towards or capitalize on a natural disaster, atrocity, conflict, death, or other tragic event.
Yes, you read that correctly. Per Google, Trump’s election qualifies as a tragic event.
Anyway, here’s the app. Enjoy. 🙂
