    Default Battery charges by shaking phone??

    I recently dl'd the app that allows you to charge your phone just by shaking it. I have an evo4g and i was wondering if anyone has any input whether this works or not? I got the app this morning and am waiting for the battery life to dip down to 15% till i try it. I figured once it gets that low it would be easier to determine if the app works or not. Any input?

    Yep, thats the one. How long did you have to shake it before you noticed a significant charge?

    I think it works with majority of the people.
    See the reviews in the attachement.

    I'm always skeptical about reviews on apps. I read into the solar panel charging app and the majority of the reviews ranted and raved about it. I read the full description and noticed the disclaimer about that app really not doing as described and that it was meant to be a practical joke. So I figured I'd come on here and see what people really think.

    I give it a one in a billion chance that this is not a joke (or worse)...

    I almost downloaded it, but all the permissions seemed excessive.

    On a similar note, I've discovered if I place my hand long enough on my coffee maker, I can brew coffee.

    Last week I was on a business trip and forgot to take the charger to me. This app saved me. Every morning I shook it until the battery got to 70% and was able to use the phone all day. Best app ever!

    This same dev just released a new app called "Emergency Toilet Paper". It really came in handy this afternoon.

    Wouldn't work with my phone. The screen is too smooth.

    OK, so how in the world could this work? What is acting as a generator?

    LOL!


    Tip: Never rush to download any APP "Updates", read the feedback for a few days so that you can see if other people are having issues with it and/or changes to permissions or other you may not want! Always use a Back Up APP!

    Okay I think it's okay to be rude,but if you didn't read the whole ******* review,its meant as a joke,you can not literally charge you phone by shaking it

    If the shaking-phone-to-charge app isn't called MasterCharger with a warning to switch hands periodically and a notification upon full charge that says 'Moneyshot!', I'm not buying it.

    Maybe in the tips section, it can tell you that cupping the bottom of the phone whilst shaking produces better results, too.
