A South Korean company is selling an iPhone app that pretends to be the user’s girlfriend. For the equivalent of $1.99 US, it sends four video calls a day to say girlfriendy things to lonely guys without time to date (or success in dating). It doesn’t say if it includes things like “are you going to spend all day Sunday watching football with the guys again?”
The company claims it sold 80,000 in a single day. I would prefer, for the sake of South Korean men, not to believe that.
And yes, an English-language version is in the works.
