Arrow New Application: DonTouch

Please Login to Remove!

Hey folks,
here I bring you a new application for the Storm and Storm2: DonTouch it is called and it prevents other users from touching your device.

What is DonTouch?
It's an app that keeps others from touching or using your precious device.

How do I use this app?

You launch it via the icon and then you can choose when it should go active (either in 5 sec or 10 sec). After the elapsed time if anyone touches (clicks a button or picks it up) your device, it will play a loud alarm sound or what other sound you choose.

How does this app work?
It uses the accelerometer in the BlackBerry Storm and Storm2 to notice the event of someone touching it. When it detects it, it plays the sound.

When should I use this app?
You should use this app when you e.g. leave your BlackBerry on your desk in the office and don't like it when random people pick it up. Watch their face how scared and embarassed they look when they suddenly get barked at from your device. You can also use it in the family for some fun .

Get it here
at the Software Store.
And watch the video here on YouTube.

There is a free trial available! Make sure to post your stories here!

Vibration and Ringtone at the same time? Finally!

This sounds like a fun app, users might want to have a heart defribulator in hand!

Does it include insurance against startled people dropping or throwing your precious BB? Yikes!

Is there any other kind of defibrillator???

This would be a neat toy, but I can't imagine any serious application... unless the BB owner was up to no good.
