Ugly Meter Game for Smartphones Rates Unattractiveness With Zippy

For only $0.99 spent at the Apple store, the purchase of the Ugly Meter app will tell you straight up how attractive you are -- and the results aren’t always pretty.

The smartphone game rates users based on an uploaded picture and gives them a number out of 100 on the ‘ugly’ scale. As if finding out that an inanimate object using a completely flawed rating system finds you completely unappealing isn’t enough, there are also some harsh comments that accompany the score. One of the zing-worthy, tear-inducing disses is ‘you’re so ugly, you could make a glass eye cry.’ Ouch.

Although the game has been out for some time, it is only now getting a flux of downloads after receiving the newly upgraded comment feature and shout-outs on several popular radio shows.
