It's Friday at last. So to help you goof off and avoid work, we bring you a double dose of time vampire iPhone apps. First up, for the cat lovers out there who tragically don't have any cats, comes CatPaint, a $0.99 app that lets you add images of cats to pics that you've snapped with your iPhone. via MacWorld:

Davander Mobile has launched CatPaint, an app that lets you add cuteness—in feline form—to any photo on your iPhone or iPod touch. You grab a photo, choose a kitten, and then tap to place it anywhere within the image.

But the makers of the add-a-cat app must have realized that it's possible to get carried away by your enthusiasm in such a situation. CatPaint uses the iPhone's accelerometer as a delete function: Shake gently to remove the most recently added cat, or shake violently to purge all felines from the image. From one internet meme to an app that incorporates them all—teh internets. Brace yourself for a lolpocalypse, according to their description on YouTube:

THE MOST EXCITING IPHONE GAME EVER! Coming soon (already submitted to the App Store) to the iPhone or iPod Touch. A (cyber)space shooter of epic proportions. Collect lolcats, dodge popups, feed trolls, avoid viruses, break through firewalls. It's EPIC.
