Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on December 15th, 2010

If you are lonely, the ”Honey, it’s me!” app will help ease your pain. It was developed for the iPhone by Nabix and is for lonely South Korean men looking for love or something creepy. They used a cute 22 year old Korean model, Mina, for this ‘video-call’ application that has her saying all kinds of things that real women won’t say to you, while talking into the camera.

She will wish you good night or tell you to eat breakfast among other things, helping single guys feel like they have a woman in their life. She’s basically a virtual girlfriend. The app is free and the developers even plan to launch English, Chinese and Japanese versions of the app.
