Washington: Paul, the psychic octopus who predicted World Cup matches with uncanny accuracy, is now an iPhone application.

The Brazilian software developer behind the program, uTouchLabs, describes it as a "fun way to randomly choose between two options."

"Cinema or theatre? Pizza or sushi? Skirt of dress? Marcia or Andrea? Ask the Octopus?" it says.

The user types in the options and a cartoon octopus chooses between them.

The program costs 99 cents to download from Apple`s iTunes.

Paul, an octopus at an aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany, earned worldwide attention during the World Cup with his predictions, which included Spain`s victory in the final against the Netherlands.
