We’ve all been in those awkward situations where you’re trying to find a graceful way to make an exit.
Wouldn’t it be great to get a phone call right in the middle of that awkward situation so you could politely excuse yourself?
Well, there’s an app for that and it’s called Tickle. Tickle uses your phones accelerometer to detect touches or gestures that you pre-configure so you get a phone call just when you need it!
Once you have it installed, it sits in the background waiting for you to make the gesture that you need to escape and viola, you get a phone call.
The creators of the app claim that the app is so sensitive, it can detect the gesture even if your phone is in your shirt or pants pocket.
You can use subtle touches or wiggles to generate the rescue call as an excuse to excuse yourself!
Tickle is currently in private beta and will initially only be available for the iPhone, but if you think this app could be useful for you, you can get on the waiting list at http://UseTickle.com
