WTF App Of The Week

SoundFi

At first, SoundFi sounds like an interesting idea, with the way it can provide a premium and personalized 3D headphone experience in a movie theater. You can even listen to a film in a different language if you wish, but then you have to figure a bunch of people will most likely open this app during a show to screw around with its settings. As it stands, more than enough people refuse to put their phone away in a theatre once a show starts, and this app will surely make the situation worse. But hey, at least the movie will sound great as you annoy the people sitting around you.
