It’s political season, all right.
A time for platforms and debates. For talking points and press conferences. And also, it appears, for a bit of cleverness.
Developer Julio Castillo will probably poll well enough to make into the next debate (either party!) now that news of his “Trump Trump” app has hit the press.
Earlier, Castillo had launched “K Blocker,” a content-blocking extension for iOS 9 that turns away all Kardashian-related content.
“On the heels of the glorious extension’s release, Castillo has gifted us with another gem — the ‘Trump Trump’ extension which offers iOS 9 users the opportunity to enjoy a Donald Trump-free Internet experience,” reports Forbes.
Castillo is a co-founder of furtiv Ltd. an independent app development company. Fortunately for the appmeisters at furtiv, they won’t have to live with the consequences of the next presidential election: its headquarters is in Helsinki, Finland.
“After I made a Kardashian blocker for iOS … I was flooded with requests for a Trump blocker,” Castillo told Forbes. “I don’t know if we are heading towards a future where we’ll be able to block everything that we don’t like, but here’s my small contribution to dystopia.”
Ah, political season — a time for dystopia, too. And also, it seems, for dumping The Donald.
