Yesterday, we discussed the second part of our tech giants coming to the west series with Huawei. What people may not know, however, is that Huawei owns a company by the name of HiSilicon.

Annoy your Friends with Wrukwiacz
Improving our devices for the sake and future of humanity is one aspect of development here in XDA. The other aspect, is to have some fun with them. XDA member AndrewSpec has written an app that resembles an older app of the same kind known as SMS Nuke. The main function of this app is simply to automatically send SMS messages to whoever you want to annoy. As an added feature (and the main difference with SMS Nuke), this app can also fake call people as well. It simply makes a call, and as soon as the person (victim) answers, the phone call gets disconnected and it gets redialed. Annoying… isn’t it?
SMS Nuke is a great program but it has one disadvantage – you cannot make a fake call to someone. I don’t know how it’s called in English, but in Poland we call it ‘strzałka’ and it means that we do a call and before a person answers it we hang up so the other cellphone only rings It’s very annoying and can make people mad :] So I wrote this small app to send multiple sms and repeat calls.
The name doesn’t mean anything but it polish we have a dirty word and the name is this word but with two letters changed by place.
You can get more information in the application thread.
