Whatever you do, don’t download this app

Worst iPhone Apps

If there’s one app in Apple’s iOS App Store that might be called the worst, most evil, horrifyingly sinister app on the planet, it might be Baldify. The app itself is well-made and the quickness with which it applies its wonderfully complex photo effects is downright impressive, but this dastardly app will sap the spirit of even the most confident young men (and women) out there. What does it do? It makes you bald.

Free in the App Store for a limited time, Baldify for the iPhone and iPad gives users a glimpse of their sad, bald future.

Simply snap a selfie, drag the eye and ear indicators to their proper places on the screen, and the app will show you what you look like bald. It matches your skin tone when rendering your bald dome, so it looks frighteningly realistic. Users can also add aging effects to make the results even more terrifying. And worst of all, the resulting image is animated so your new bald self is as lifelike as can be.

On a personal note, I’d like to apologize to my wife in advance for what lies ahead.

Baldify is free in the App Store right now, and it can be downloaded by following the link below in the source section.
