Ugly as Sin: New Phone App Will Tell You If You're Ugly or Not

A handy cruel (and pointless) new iPhone app promises to be brutally honest and tell you what your good friends and family will never tell you...whether you are ugly or not!

The Ugly Meter App  has been on the market for a while now, but suddenly it promises to knock the über-popular "Angry Birds" from its long-standing perch as the most popular phone app internationally. It's already been the Number One most purchased app in China for the past few weeks and is Number Two on the list in the United States.

The application came under fire last year by anti-bullying advocates who feared that school students would use the feature to ridicule and degrade fellow students. The application allows users to take an image of their face, and then scans it for symmetry, contours, and other elements to determine how good (or bad) looking a person according to a specific set of beauty-determining criteria. Ratings are handed out on a scale of 1-10, and include some not-so-nice quips about a person's looks the lower on the scale they rate.

The app exploded in popularity after shock-jock and America's Got Talent judge Howard Stern featured it on his highly-rated Sirius XM radio show. The app designers, Dapper Gentleman, are currently bringing in the dough, as Ugly Meter has been downloaded more than five million times. 

"I made the cover of Vogue, so bugger off bloody, Ugly Meter! You're just plain cruel!"
