New App Claims It Can Cure Your Fear Of Spiders

The makers of Fear of Spiders Phobia Treatment claim the new app will eradicate your spider phobia, using "NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), visualization, and mind mapping methods." Essentially, the app lets you choose scary photos of spiders, then stare at them until you aren't afraid anymore. At $2.99, the app is way cheaper than therapy, but more expensive than looking up photos of spiders on the internet, which might have the same effect. The company, Self Study Apps, also offers apps for getting rid of your fear of flying and dentists. They do not have any apps to deal with fears of rare diseases, used towels, or the mail, though, so they are useless to me.
