Selw Baladna App: Egypt in Soundbites

A ingenious and hilarious new Egyptian app lets you play the most infamous soundbites by Egyptian celebrities, politicians and more, at the touch of a screen.

Simple as it may be, this new Egyptian app is pure genius. It comes to NO one’s surprise that the post-revolution Egypt scene is littered with public figures that say the most absurd phrases. Thanks to Selw Baladna, these precious soundbites are just a touch of a screen away.

Who can forget "Shut Ub Your Mouse," the phrase that rocked the White House? Who can ignore the wise words and philosophical questions of TV host Tawfik Okasha; “does the presidential candidate know how to stuff a duck?" Or the expressive squeals and grunts of lawyer and chairman of Zamalek Club Mortada Mansour? All these infamous statments and sounds are part of this ingenious and addictive app that we've been interrupting conversations with all day. According to app creator Ahmed Nawar, you can "forget your crappy imitations of ‘omaaaal’ or ‘leeeh’ while hanging out with your friends. Listen to the real deal on the spot without Internet or searching!"

Click here to download it for iOS and here for Android, and get pressing on these talking heads for hilarity to ensue...
