AdGent lets you take pictures of things and rate them. Why? They don't say.

AdGent Digital is an iPhone app that allows you to rate things. You take a picture, apparently, and rate it in 140 characters. (Whatever happened to the days when a picture painted a thousand words?)

Anyway, in the spirit of things, I'm going to give this an instant rating. It sounds like a load of juvenile nonsense. I'll give it two. As in two months before they go bust.

But hang on, am I being fair?

Make up your own mind...

The global digital and social media technology company today announced the release of Rateable, an iPhone app that lets users rate and comment on whatever they like.

Rateable allows users to rate things - celebrities, hotels, restaurants, beer, cars, the latest news events, whatever and yes, NSFW stuff - using a 5 star system. Users take a picture of the object they are rating and can also comment in 140 characters. Rate, pictures and comments are then posted to Facebook and Twitter.

AdGent Digital Founder and CEO Cameron Yuill commented: "We built Rateable so we could quickly, easily and concisely express our opinion while we were feeling passionate about something.

You can take a picture and rate the meal you just ate, the show you just watched or if you are The Lonely Island and you "Just Had Sex" you can rate it and broadcast your feelings to the world."
