Avoid sticky situations by selling old mobile
7 September 2010 — 4:02 PM
People who frequently find themselves in awkward social situations, such as bad dates and boring birthday parties, may be wise to sell their old mobile and invest in a Nokia device.
This is because the Finnish brand has launched a pair of apps that may help people in such positions, explains Ian, author of the Nokia Conversations blog.
Of most interest to those looking to make a quick getaway is sure to be Desguiator, which allows users to set their mobile to ring after a certain signal.
Subtle movements such as tapping the handset are enough to trigger the usual call tone and, with a bit of creative thinking, owners can make their excuses and leave.
The writer goes on to note a more fun – and less sinister – app entitled Happy Birthday is also now available to those with compatible Nokia phones.
It allows people to enter the birthdays of their friends and family and, on those dates, a virtual cake can be presented complete with candles to blow out.
Nokia recently released the 5250, which may be a model just right for trying out the apps.
