Make a Wish with BirthdayCake2 for Windows Mobile
After you’ve had your share of the birthday wine, a task as seemingly innocuous as blowing out the candles on your cake can become a dangerous life-or-death feat complete with burning clothes and a ruined carpet. Thankfully, XDA member Jaxbot‘s BirthdayCake2 application for Windows Mobile removes the mess and the cake itself – allowing you to blow out virtual candles through the clever use of your phone’s microphone.
The small but fun application will let you calibrate the noise level at which the candles will be ‘blown out’, while also allowing you to program the phone to play a tune when they’re extinguished successfully. Personal messages can also be set to appear on the screen once it’s finished.
BirthdayCake2 is, as you probably guessed, version 2 of Jaxbot’s app. The newer version brings improved graphics and the reduction of bugs and is available in the application thread.

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
