Ugly Meter App For iPhone Dishes Out Bad News

Feeling pretty?  Download the 99 cent app for iPhone and confirm what you already suspect.

That your face scares little kids and your chances of getting a pay raise based on looks are the same and shooting a polar bear and a regular bear on the same day.

The Ugly Meter app, developed by two Arizona ugly guys, scans and rates facial features according to set criteria.  Examples include the size of the nose, the distance between the eyes, the height of the forehead, the weakness or strength of the chin.

Rubbing salt in the wound, one of the developers says, "How you do your hair and whether you have a beard or not, those things don't matter...this is facial structure, so, unfortunately, there's nothing you can do about it.  You are what you are."

Critics are condemning the work as a way to stigmatize and demean people.  We have to presume those critics tried the app and didn't like their scores.  

The developers say it's all in good fun - you know the idea of destroying someone's self-esteem is a hoot, folks..

All in all, this thing can't be worse than the DNA test that predicts how long you will live, or what fatal diseases you will develop.  So heck, lets all get stigmatized for a buck. Anyone got anything better to do?
