Electronic Closet Opener

It may be a savvy advertising slogan, but there really is an iPhone app for just about everything. Whether you want to make surreptitious fart noises bellow from your pocket, play games with your greasy thumbs blocking the screen, or do things you'd do on a computer only at a fraction of the size and with twice the awkward fumbling, there's almost nothing you can't accomplish with Apple's amazing devices. Now, there's the Get Out GLBT app, which provides helpful resources for gay people who want to come out of the closet. No, it won't generate a hypnotic, sub-audible tone to lull your bigoted parents into a false sense of security. It's really just a glorified forum. Still, it's in your pocket at all times, which could come in handy. Or, if you've downloaded it to your iPad, it's in your lap. Which is really kind of a burden. More details here.
