Pull my finger! No, pull mine!
The two applications - "Pull My Finger" and the iFart - both offer users a variety of gassy noises that vary in length, sound and type. Users can press a button and hear anything from a short toot to a long, drawn-out fart.
Air-o-Matic, the company behind "Pull My Finger," asked Apple in January to pull iFart from shelves because it infringed on their copyright. Apple denied the motion and Air-o-Matic filed a silent but deadly motion to settle for $50,000. The company reportedly began planning to sue Infomedia, the company behind the iFart application.
Infomedia asked a Denver court to rule this week to declare that "Pull My Finger" is too common a phrase to be trademarked by Air-o-Matic or any other application creator, Fox News reports.
If Infomedia wins, both fart-simulators will be able to use the phrase.
There are more than 75 other flatulence-based applications for sale in the iPhone registry.
