Halls EaterTo say this app is weird is an understatement. The Halls Eater app appears to be a promotional app for Halls, the popular cough drop sold by the British confectionery company Cadbury plc.

The app is available on the iPhone and iPad and contains four gorgeous virtual Japanese woman that.. Um.. feed you Halls. After picking a lovely lady to play with, the app has the user simulate a mouth with their fingers, grabbing the cough drop and biting down using a pinch gesture on the screen.

Users can also pass the halls to the ladies, touch her hands & lips and receive some sort of congratulatory audio responses although honestly, we’re not entirely sure what’s being said.

If you follow the directions successfully, it will also provide you with 16 special limited edition photos. And, considering the theme, we’re guessing the images would consist of more Japanese women.

We’ve seen some weird apps from Japan in the past but this app really takes the cake. The video below says it all.
