Part of the privilege of being a male is that we get to focus on really stupid stuff and take it seriously. I mean having that big an interesting in outdoor grilling and home improvement really isn’t that necessary but again, we are males so it’s allowed. Hell, women get to be interested in shopping so I think it all evens out.
And for those men out there who want to indulge in their “unnecessary” interests now you can do it even more with your iPhone. Amazingly there are some apps out there that will blow you away. Clearly you can look any of this stuff up on the internet or at a library but just in case you want it on your phones, here you go.
Check out six unnecessarily awesome iPhone apps for males after the jump….
