Phobias 500

COST: Free
DESCRIPTION: Entertainment, Native, Reference
..RELEASED: 8/27/09, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 3-1/2 Stars..

Phobias 500 is certainly an interesting app with a whole new set of terminology for me to learn. I can't think of any phobias which I have. I mean, I don't like reptiles, but I'm not phobic about them. However, I find it pretty interesting to see all the different phobias that do exist because it helps to understand certain people in a better way. Phobias 500 contains a selection of 500 phobias and definitions. There is one listed per page, and you only have to shake or tap your phone to move to the next page and phobia. You may also swipe left/right or up/down to move to previous and next phobias. You will be amazed at the amount of phobias you will find. The app is educational, but could be slightly more organized with alphabetical or type listings. I'm sure that will soon be remedied, however. In the meantime, you can impress your friends with your new found knowledge.

"What makes your heart pound, heart tremble and spine tingle with terror. Do you have autophobia (fear of being alone), mysophobia (fear of germs), or dentophobia (fear of dentists)? Up to 18% of Americans suffer from Phobias. A phobia is defined as an intense, irrational fear out of proportion to the danger and beyond voluntary control."
