DON’T Buy This $200 App
– Welcome back to another episode of Don't Buy This. In the last video, I checked out a hundred dollar app which we can all agree wasn't the best choice ever. But in this series, I'm here to find out why some of these apps are 200, 300, 400. Why they're so expensive. So right now, I'm about to check out a 200 dollar app. Drop a like on this video if you guys want me to check out a 300 dollar one, keep the series going. We're about to check out a horn. It's called a vuvuzela. A vuvuzela? I don't even know. You guys know I would normally just go ahead and buy this app right off the bat, but there's actually two versions of this app.
There's a free version and then there's the plus version. So I got the free version right here, sittin' right next to that hundred dollar app. If you haven't seen that video, definitely watch it right after this and use the poll card, like right up there in the eye section, to vote if this app's worth it or not. We're gonna find out, every video, if the app's actually worth the price. So I got the free version here. It's the Vuvuzela, so just fired it on up. It's a horn. It's one of those horns you'd see at the FIFA World Cup, or soccer matches, or any sporting events. These things are loud and you definitely
Are gonna know the noise when you hear it. Hang on. (slow electronica music) This is the free version. So far, I'm kinda disappointed. You didn't subscribe to see an app not work or do anything. It's got an interesting screen. We got an iPhone 3G, with a soccer ball, blowin' the horn. I thought I read somewhere if you tap or (horn blows) shake it! (horn blows) Yes! So if you shake your phone. Come on. (horn blows quickly)
I'm real glad I didn't pay any money for this yet. Basically, when you shake it in either direction. (horn blows) Alright, I'm gonna close out of the app just so I can talk. I actually know what a vuvuzela sounds like, and that doesn't sound like it. It sounds like it was recorded from a TV, and then recorded from that TV watching the original soccer match, or football match, however you wanna pronounce it, and that's the noise you're hearing. This is the free version. I'm stoked that I didn't actually pay for this. Let me know in the comments if you think I'm about to make a great decision, or the worst decision ever.
Is it worth it, or won't it be worth it? We're about to find out. So I'm gonna go into the App Store now, search vuvuzela world cup horn plus. Okay? You see it's the exact same company, DLP Mobile. 200 bucks. We actually have two stars. How? That's awesome! Someone else bought this horn plus app, like your boy. Vuvuzela World Cup Horn Plus. I'm not the only one. There's three people that have bought it. I don't know if those people are crazier than me.
They probably are. Oh, we have two reviews. One review from 2012. "This app is crap. "For $200, it should come with a happy ending." You get to hear the horn! How much more of a happy ending does someone want? That's when your team's winning. (mimics horn blowing) (horn blowing) I'm gonna go ahead and purchase it now. Wait, it said it needed access to media files? Go back. Whoa, whoa, whoa. That's really sketchy.
When a horn app needs your photos and call information? I don't know if you guys have seen that meme with Elon Musk, in when a flashlight app wants to access your call info. That's how I feel right now. And I'm gonna make it happen. I'm gonna let this app do what it wants to me. Alright, I'm just gonna buy it. I don't even know what else to say. Device ID call… Okay, that sounds really sketchy. "Used one or more of files on the device, "such as images, videos, or audio." Why do you need that, Vuvuzela Horn Plus? You're a horn! Okay, we're gonna hit Accept.
Buy. Payment successful. We have just crossed over to the Dark Side. I've made the second largest mistake in this series. Make sure you get subscribed so you don't miss that next episode, it's only getting worse. I can't wait for a thousand dollar app, said no one ever. Vuvuzela Plus chillin' next to the original, free version of Vuvuzel, Vuvuzwe, Vuvuzela! I don't even know how to say. I'm saying Venezuela. That's a country, this is a horn. No! Alright, let's hop on into a 200 dollar app. It's the exact same screen as the free version.
Did I get duped? Yeah, you kinda knew what you were goin' into and it accesses your call info. (claps) Nice one, Keaton! Alright, for $200, maybe if I just tap it, it'll work this time? No. (horn blows quickly) I had to shake it there. (horn blows) That's about, I'd say, seven seconds worth of vuvuzela. That's no different than the free version. I'm gonna show ya. $200 version.
I coulda used this money for like an Amazon Echo. Looks like this. Free version? Looks exactly the same. There's no difference, I got screwed. So we're back in the App Store right now and I'm just looking. The free version has a higher rating than the paid version. Usually that's not how things go down. I guess a lot of people are being honest. We've got two screenshots here. "Enjoy the thrill of FIFA World Cup with this great app." I would say I've been enjoying the thrill. Alright, now I'm gonna go back to the paid version and see what the difference is.
I gotta find out what the difference is. "The most popular unofficial vuvuzela "FIFA 2010 World Cup horn. "Shake your phone and your horn begins to blast." No banner ads! I think that's the only perk. I paid $200 to have an ad-free version of a horn that sounds like it was recorded in a bee's nest. What? I'm looking in here now, I don't even see ads on the free version. I think I got scammed. The only thing we can do now is leave a review on the paid version. There was one other guy, he's no longer the only one.
I'm gonna join him. I'm gonna give it five stars. Submit. Does this app have audio feeds? I wanna say yes. It wants my call history. Not specifically my audio feeds, but, it's just sketchy and I'm not allowing anyone else to get this. Does this app have eSports news? No, it wants to. Does this app have brackets? No, it doesn't have braces, come on. – Stop it. – Tell me what you think. Alright, would've liked
A trumpet better, and more sketchiness. Come on, Google. More sketchiness. Perfect! I just submitted it! There you go, go check out my review just to see that this video is legit and let me know in the comments if you guys think the vuvuzela app is better than the last app. I think it is, we got a little more bells and whistles. That's pretty much it for this video. Shout out to Parv and Carter for being this video's notification shout-out. If you guys want one,
Turn 'em on and let me know in the comments. Subscribe if you're new and Tweet me at @techsmartt if you guys find any other weird, expensive apps, or just let me know in the comments and I'll see you later. Peace. (mimics horn blowing) All the people in Nordstrom's have instructed me not to go near the Tom Ford sunglasses, the Saint Laurents, I don't know who Linda is, but just stay away.
