iPhone app gives anyone a boob job

Breast augmentation is expensive and time-consuming — and can't even just be done to random strangers on the street. So what are you supposed to do if you really want to see how someone would look with a slightly larger chest? Reach for your iPhone, of course!

With an iPhone app appropriately named Boob Job you can give anyone a little lift and boost.

All you need to do is install the app — you can get it from the Apple App Store for a dollar — and find or take a photo of your lucky patient. Then you'll just swipe, drag, and pinch your fingers against your iPhone's screen a few times and — tada! — breast augmentation surgery complete.

I decided to try out the app on fellow blogger Whitson Gordon who — while clever and delightfully witty — isn't exactly in possession of breasts that would make Pamela Anderson envious. I snatched a photo off his Facebook page, opened it in the Boob Job app, dragged some circles onto his chest, and resized them appropriately. Then I tapped some vaguely marked buttons on the next screen to increase the selected parts and add a little highlight along the newly created curves.

You can see Whitson's pre-virtual-surgery and post-virtual-surgery photos above. The final result won't tempt any Victoria's Secret modeling scouts, but it makes for a great laugh.
