BeBabble

Description of App: 

BeBabble automatically produces entertaining three-work acronyms or "Buzz- Word" phrases. There are 100 choices for each of the three words which make for a total of one million possible three-word combinations. BeBabble provides "Dazzling Intoxicating Empowerment" to the average user who might otherwise be left to their own "Unsupportable Stupefying Stance" when participating in everyday conversation. Many of the phrases seem to embody wisdom while others are simply entertaining.

For example:

Bombastic Bubbling Encapsulation

Encrusted Mouthwatering Entrenchment

Pusillanimous Throbbing Monstrosity

Cataclysmic Infecting Satisfaction

Stupendous Grinding Enfoldment

You can decide if there is wisdom or simply entertainment in a particular buzz-word phrase.

You can choose how frequently new buzz-word combinations are generated in the automatic mode. The choices are: One second between rolls, five seconds between rolls, ten seconds between rolls, and fifteen seconds between rolls.

You can determine the action of the Roll'Em button. The choices are: 1) Randomly select the new buzz-word. 2) Go to the next buzz-word as if the picker was an odometer in an automobile, 3) Move all three pickers together in lock-step to the next selection. Sounds can be muted if desired. Settings will be shared with BeBabble on your other Apple devices if you enabled this feature on first installing (or re-installing).
