The husband of one of my dear friends (who I also consider a dear friend) had the app Action Movie FX on his iPhone and took great delight in blowing his wife and me up all weekend while I was staying at their house.

The app is easy enough for anyone to use. First, you need to record at least five seconds of video on your iPhone. Next, you decide if you want the object to be blown up, smashed by a car, or demolished by a rock. Once you have completed your action movie, you can watch over and over again and giggle like a little schoolgirl at the site of someone you know getting blown away. It’s a fun app that is entertaining for everyone. And free. And probably good therapy.
