[Review] iPoo

If you’re looking for the perfect app to use while you are in the bathroom, you’ll be relieved to hear about this gem. The 99 cent app was conceived by CeilingHouse and functions as a social network for poo-ers worldwide, and includes enough features to keep you on the edge of your seat.

It’s very simple to create an account; all you have to do is edit your Poofile with your desired username.
