Shake’n’Wake Mod for HD2
Posted October 10, 2010 at 12:00 pm by Ben Elliott
Although it was created some time ago, XDA member zzattack has created an interesting modification for the HTC HD2, which is worth bringing to the surface.
The Shake’n’Wake application does exactly what it says on the tin. Rather than relying on pressing the power button to wake your HD2 from standby, the app instead lets you do so with a quick shake, making full use of the phone’s accelerometer.
While being an interesting tool, Shake’n’Wake has some practical uses too. The app was originally conceived as a fellow member was looking for a way to wake the device in some way other than by pressing the power button, which had been somehow broken. In addition, some users have expressed fear of breaking the buttons by obsessively hammering them to check for new texts – thankfully, by using this app, only your wrist is in danger of being broken.
Proceed to the application thread for more information and the .cab.
