Remember George Michael's Fakeblock App? Yeah, You Can Download It


Who doesn't love apps? They make our lives easier and there's one for every need. Recognize the tune, but can't name that catchy commercial jingle? There's an app for that. Having trouble deciding on a Thai place for dinner? There's an app for that. Desperate enough to finally end that bad relationship that you'd rather be charged $10 every time you try to text your ex? There's an app for that. Well, a fictional one at least.

TV has been jumping on the technological bandwagon when it comes to trendy programs for your smartphone, and now you can own some of the apps from your favorite TV shows.

In "Arrested Development," when George Michael heads off to college, he tells everyone he's working on the latest in anti-piracy software. In actuality, he's creating one of the dumbest apps known to mankind. Fakeblock let's you use your phone as a wooden block so you can drum out some major beats. The show created a real-life version of the musical app for your iPhone, allowing anyone to "rock out with their block out."

For five more apps straight from the small screen to your smartphone, head over to A.V. Club.
