The accelerometer within your device is useful in so many ways. One of them is to measure how far you can launch it into the air. That’s right, there’s an app for that, aptly entitled Send Me To Heaven (S.M.T.H.).
Pick a nick and walk through the tutorial. Step 1: throw your device in the air as high as you can and catch it. That’s it.
The accelerometer will measure exactly how high you dared to toss your device, and you’ll be invited to take a look at the leaderboards, both regional and international. You can even check against your Facebook friends, which I can see quickly devolving into systematic pandemonium.
You’ll have to tap through a couple “at my own risk” screens every time you make an attempt, just to remind yourself that you’re an absolute nitwit, one who’s about to take a flying leap at internet notoriety.
Has there ever been an app that more immediately released sweet, sweet adrenaline? Has reality ever been so augmented? Carrot Pop’s S.M.T.H. is nothing short of brilliant madness, a Pandora’s Box of an invitation.
