An app that brings to your smartphone a completely (not) interactive text-only story (or possibly ZX81 type graphics, only horizontal lines rendered very slowly).

In glorious monochrome it tells the classic tale of of how the Greco-Trojan war was inadvertently started with Helen selecting the wrong "Paris" on the navigation app of her tablet, while driving a chariot.

I'm not getting caught up in all that "Yeah, but did Homer actually write it?" bit, just because it doesn't mention doughnuts at any point is not incontrovertible proof one way or the other.

Suspect very, very early ver of Apple Maps.

       Coming next, iLied, in which the computer feeds you deliberate misinformation. Also iLeider, the classical snob's MP3 library app. And finally iLiner, a special adapter that plugs into your smartphone's data port and which has an algorithmically extruded mascara applicator.

       iLaid, an app to keep track of your amorous conquests. iLead, universal power supply. iLead, pencil core containing microcircuitry for some obscure geeky functionality. iLido, an ultrasonic cleaning tank for your smartphone. iLlness, a strange Welsh affliction from over-use of fashion electronica.

       The iiiiiMnotYourSteppingStone app, which would seem to be some kind of pre-nup boilerplate generator.

       i[Marked-for-deletion], a smartphone app that automatically detects stupid ideas and annihalates them. (Swiftly followed by a 50% reduction in internet traffic I suppose....)

       I think I'm still ahead on points, having got 4 i's in there.
not_morrison_rm, Apr 21 2013

       Ahh, by dint of using a sash clamp, I managed to get all four leading i's on a triple letter score square.   

       And mild re-edit of original idea.
