App of the Month
I'm not really sure I have one for this month either. Of course, it is free - and that might be too high of a price.
Alfred Kinsey did most of his work at Indiana University and this app - the Kinsey Reporter - is an IU application.
I'm mot sure what I thought it was going to be. I assumed it was going to tell me where on the scale I landed (a big old 6!), but that is not what it does at all.
Notice it is the Reporter, not Report.
They want app users to report their sexual encounters or those around us.
Granted it's not necessarily 'sex' per se, but things about flirting, fetishes, etc. Each category has different data elements they want you to capture and submit.
The way I see it, IU wants us all to be their unpaid work-study students.
I'd give a better overview of it but............the website kind of is extremely slow to respond and after getting the app up and running ONCE - it bombs out since.
Maybe it's being overused. Maybe IU is an embarrassment to the Big 10 in more ways than football.
You get what you pay for. I won't be keeping the app, but I figured I'd see what it is about. Or was about.
