Not unlike iThrown, the new iPhone app Home Run Derby makes me a little nervous.

With iThrown, you're always in danger of letting go of your phone and actually throwing it. With Home Run Derby you're supposed to swing your iPhone like a bat. The description also says, "The harder the swing, the further it'll fly!" :eek:

I'll give the app some credit though since you can hit home runs with a simple flick on the iPhone screen instead. And there's three different stadiums available.

Any game/app with "swing your arm with the iPhone" is no-go for me! In the high school I could throw a ball loooooong way....so...:laugh2:

I'm with you on this one. It is just plain silly to take a chance of ruining your phone for apps like these.
There are some apps that require you to shake the phone and I don't really like that too much although I have done it (some of the snow globe apps).

yeah, even apps like facebook that require a "shake" to update/refresh make me a little uncomfortable.

LOL ... agreed ... still waiting for the iSmash app - throw your iPhone against the wall, the harder the impact the higher the score ... seriously, a big PASS from us on these types of apps in general

I can see it now. A wrist loop for the iPhone with a warning label that states "caution failure to use re wrist loop could result in a Major hit to the pocketbook and a serious low amount of pride." kinds like the wii controlers LOL.
