The Onion, the entertainment company that provides satirical news coverage of real and fictional events, has released the Onion Magic Answer Ball app for the iPhone. As you’d expect from its name, the app answers your questions in typical snarky Onion fashion like a virtual Magic 8-Ball.
Truth. Philosophers, kings, and philosopher-kings have searched for it since the dawn of time. Now, the official iPhone Magic Answer Ball App by The Onion puts the truth in the palm of your hand. In a world dominated by superficiality and mediocrity, only The Onion can be trusted to tell you what lies ahead with scathing accuracy and cool indifference.
In addition to asking your own questions, you can see the Onion’s own Question of the Day for the current day and the last several days. The answers provided are not always kid-friendly and the app has an age rating of 12+ or higher despite the fact that it’s modeled after a toy targeted at children.
Onion Magic Answer Ball was released today and costs $.99, joining the organization’s official The Onion app (which is free and worthy of a download if you’re a fan of the publication) in the App Store.
