The perfect app for vampires

The Transylvania branch of the National Health Service has just launched a free app for iOS and Android devices that lets vampires target willing victims easier than ever before without all that late-night stalking and morphing into bats malarkey.

The app lets victims donors search for a blood donor sessions and once they have found a convenient session can secure an appointment with the undead through the National Contact Centre. Once they’ve been relieved of their proverbial armful they can share their bloody activities on Facebook and Twitter.

Route guidance is provided through Google maps although for iPhone5 users, on reflection (if you still have one), you may want to get hold of an old-fashioned “A-to-Z” just in case you end up in some strange castle confronted by a talk, dark stranger with a widow’s peak and an endless supply of tooth whitener.

Give Blood.
