Protect Your Device or Prank Friends With Jolt: Prank and Alarm

Have you ever wanted to play practical jokes on your friends and/or get back at the punks who mess around on your phone without permission? If so, XDA forum member roseblue has created the perfect application for you with Jolt: Prank and Alarm.

With this simple application; you can set a motion-sensitive alarm that goes off with various user-selectable sounds such as a siren, car alarm, or burp. Naturally, this application allows you to adjust the accelerometer sensitivity to prevent inadvertent confusion. Additionally, this application even allows you to set a delay between the disturbance and when the alarm goes off. In the words of the developer:

 Jolt is a small and simple ad-supported application that can be used either

  1. for making practical jokes to your friends or
  2. getting you alarmed when somebody messes with your phone

Features:

  • Many sounds to choose from (siren, car alarm, scream, farts, burp and more)
  • Choose any sound from sd card (requires a 3rd party file manager like ASTRO, OI File Manager, ES File Explorer etc)
  • Adjust the sensitivity of the motion detector
  • Choose the delay between movement and sound
  • Vibrating during playback
  • It can detect motion even when device is in stand-by mode

To get in on the pranks, make sure to continue on to the application thread. Don’t feel bad; your friends deserve it.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
