Anyone who’s been stuck in an awkward moment has probably wished there was some sort of magic trick to get you out, and now there is with the new Tickle app. The Tickle app allows you to use your smartphone as an escape method from an awkward moment by simply "tickling" your device.
The Tickle app detects subtle gestures such as tickling, flicking and caressing using the accelerometer and reacts to them by immediately staging a fake phone call. No one is going to think you’re rude for exiting a conversation because your mother is calling. In fact, the person you’re trying to escape may even think, "Aw, what a sweetie, nothing gets in the way of him answering his mothers phone calls" -- mission accomplished.
With the Tickle App you’ll never be stuck in an awkward moment again -- at least not without a graceful escape plan.
