If you sometimes find yourself in awkward situations that you would like too be able to leave without a fuss, a new smartphone application called Tickle might be able to help you make a clean exit.
The unique Tickle app has been specifically created to get out of awkward situations and uses your smartphones accelerometer. Once activated by touching your phone in an awkward manner, the Tickle application will generate a phantom phone call. Check out the video after the jump to see it in action and learn more.
“Tickle needs no UI. It’s always on — always ready to help you escape an awkward encounter. It’s the simplest app you’ll ever install. Tickle can accurately sense awkward motions or gestures of your device. After a brief calibration, Tickle is ready to call you when prompted.
Over time, Tickle learns to predict when and around who, awkward situations are most likely to arise. It adjusts to fit your needs.”
For more information on the new Tickle App and how it can help you make a clean exit when required jump over to the official Tickle App website for details.
Update: “Tickle” is the latest spoof video from Alex Cornell, co-founder of Firespotter Labs, who had previously entertained us with a parody app called Jotly, which took the tech industry to task for its mobile, local, social (SoLoMo!) app obsessions back in 2011.
