Has anyone else downloaded this free application for the iphone? It's supposed to be raising awareness about homeless people, but I think it's pretty awful. Yeah you can donate on it, but it's a steroetype of a guy in a hoodie who, if you don't pay him enough attention, then goes off and buys drugs.
I actually have a bit of a life also, so missed about 9 of the alerts it sent me to 'help him', but the captions seemed really rude saying 'He needed money to get into a hostel. A dealer gave him some drugs to block out the cold instead. Where were you?', and I also gave him a sandwich and he refused it saying he wasn't hungry and threw it away! Made me not want to bother helping at all.
Bad times. Thoughts for people who bothered with it also?

Lol yeah it is a bit rubbish. My hobo was awesome though, he didn't take drugs he just always stuck his thumb up at me
Didn't make me want to help homeless people though, plus if you wanted to "donate" some of the money went to the app developers.
