'World Cup Calendar Blocker' Carves Out Time to Watch Games

The World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the solar system, and 'World Cup Calendar Blocker' helps fans to appreciate as many matches as possible. The cheeky application automatically inserts fake events into users calendars during World Cup games, giving them an excuse to catch the action.

Since the World Cup only comes around once every four years, one might expect to be forgiven for skipping prior engagements to see their squad. Non-fans don't always share that sentiment, though, so World Cup Calendar Blocker gives a (dishonest) alternative. The app automatically fills in Google Calendars with events like "Help Dave With Bake Sale" and "Fundraiser for Stray Cats", precluding bosses or spouses from getting in the way of match day.
