Yes, I thought that was an odd combination too.
Fighter Pedia is a new iphone app made by TkXel – a relatively new company that Umair Javed is a part of. The app is an encyclopedia on all things related to fighter jet planes, providing detailed information, pictures and wallpapers of war planes over the decades.
To me it seems like an odd topic to build an app around, but then I have seen people who are passionate about those planes. For them, the detailed stats and wallpaper collection may be enough to draw them to the app.
Check out the video below for an overview of how this works.
After covering these recent iphone apps I cant help but wonder the same thing – there are so many useful apps that can be made on the iphone that I wonder why this talent isnt utilized for that. You can argue about there being good money in memes but there’s always a lot more money in something that’s consistently useful to a large set of people.
