Babies In Utero Can Pick Own Names with Kick to Pick App

Kick to Pick

You know that all-too-familiar tagline from the iPhone commercials, “There’s an app for that”? Well, believe it or not, there is now an app for your unborn child! To pick his or her own name in utero! 

The Kick to Pick app, recently released on iTunes, is surely a novelty, but could still be a silly way to let the little nugget have a say in which name she/he eventually is anointed with. The way the app works is as follows: 

Pick a gender for a list of names --> When you detect movement, lie down and put the phone on your belly --> The app randomly cycles through thousands of baby names as it’s monitoring movement --> A good kick will cause the app to stop on a name --> Your unborn child has spoken, so to speak, and chosen a name.  

This is more a game app than anything, but could be a fun activity for a baby shower or for parents-to-be who just want to have some fun. And hey, if you’re down to the last couple weeks of pregnancy and can’t decide between two names, then maybe you should leave the final decision up to your baby…and a really good kick.


Kick to Pick is available on iTunes for $0.99 and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (iOS 4.3 or greater).
