Does anyone have any clue if there is a purpose to this application? I cannot for the life of me figure out what the heck this app is for.

Are you kidding? Magenta *rocks*. Definitely the first real 3rd party 'Productivity' application.

I was actually just kidding, I don't think it does anything. But the fact that it is out there and listed under 'Productivity' on Installer.app amuses me endlessly. (-;

I'm clueless myself :confused:

The about this application button made me laugh the first time.
The FIRST time.

As to why I came back for a second, third, and fourth time I'll never know.

I think i get it, maybe the dev meant it to be a woopie cushion thing... Technically if you put it on someones chair it will vibrate and they'll get up all stunned and then it laughs or something along those lines. Ofcourse letting your phone get sit on is not a very good idea when it costs 500 (now 400) bucks :p . But I believe that could be a use... :laugh2:

EDIT: Scratch that, forgot screen needs static from fingers to work. Good concept though :)

i found out its pupose on modmyiPhone

"A proof-of-concept app which explores vibrate and sound on touch as well as a few other nifty tricks. Not much use for ya, but good stuff for use in future apps."

Yeah, these "tech demos" need to be removed from the community source listing.

I mean what the heck is DOOM still doing there? It just shows 2 screens, never any gameplay, so for all I know it could just be a program showing screenshots on a timer in a loop.

Magenta and Doom should definitely be removed.
