Faking Broken Phones
The Play Dead App Keeps Unwanted Hands Away from your Mobile

By: Matt Ho (Superstar) Jul 2, 11

Suppose you have a 4-year-old who can’t keep his hands off your smartphone and you’re sick of it—the Play Dead App will convince him that the mobile is incapable of providing him the joys of Angry Birds.

The idea of the Play Dead App for the iPhone is to have it pretend that the batteries are dying down fast. When you use it, it’ll show a blank screen with a loop of the shutdown screen. If you have a friend who has a tendency to drop things and likes to borrow your mobile often, activate the app and show her that your phone is ‘dying’ and she’ll refrain from using it. You’ll spare your smartphone from having additional scratches and the pains of telling off someone who should know how to handle someone’s belongings by now.
