Wow, amazing find Hondamaker.

At first it wasn't spinning for me, but then I raised the volume and it worked perfectly.

I got this App. I was all happy to try it out, but I have nothing shiny, slick and smooth to put the iPhone on. There are no shiny glass surfaces in my life, anywhere. I'll have to go to a grandma's house, they've always got a shiny and slick surface or two.

I should've known better. I had no businesss buying this App without a shiny, slick surface in my house.

rom x I've got vinyl movie posters on my wall that don't need a frame. I do have a drawing of a cat in a sink on my wall that I can try it on. I think that has glass on it.

Thanks rom x. I didn't even think of that. I'll try it tonight!

YAY! No impromptu grandma visits for me. "Hey, watcha doin on that table?! Don't break my table or I'll get the strap!" Yes, they think they still have the strength to whoop you!

rom x - U have a point. She would have to get a briefing before I began just so my iPhone 5 wouldn't get clobbered. LOL! No, she'd be interested. She loves the iPad so this would probably amuse her.

I saw this app and wrote an article about it actually, cant post the article but its amazing how they can calibrate the frequencies to cause the 5 to rotate at such a constant speed.

Apparently it works best for the iPhone 5 due to its lightweight design but it works with the 4/4S also just not as well.

Do you think there was hard-core math and physics involved in doing this trick with the motor vibrations, or just a lucky coincidence that a fairly common vibration pattern causes the phone to rotate?

Fun, but definitely a gimmick.
Yep, definitely not worth the effort in removing the phone from a heavy-duty case (like the Otterbox Defender), then getting it back in there. I can stand in one place and rotate fairly well using my own feet, and I would have the added benefit of being able to record sound. But nonetheless, I had to buy this app immediately after I read about it.

I have read that performing this stunt repeatedly could result in scuff marks. This alone should be a deterrent to running the app...

rumor has that trojan the company that makes the "trojan intimate massager" has now filed a law suit and claims that this new app voilates there patient. for the type of frequency used in the vibration.

I think it was probably coincidental that they noticed a certain vibration pattern caused the phone to rotate in one direction. So they packaged it up with video and cashed in on all the people who are willing to part with a buck to see their phone spin around in a circle.
