I want to play a game…

File under: Wrong?, What could possibly go

Send Me To Heaven (or SMTH) is a novel app for your smartphone. It is, according to the developers:

In which:

Player throws his phone as high as he can. The higher the better. The phone registers the height and uploads result to leader boards. World Top 10, Week Top 10 and Day Top 10 lists are available.

But isn’t this all a bit risky? Well yes, but it’s ok – they’ve got that covered:

Hints: Be careful not to injure yourself or others. Be always aware that there is enough space above you and around you. Do some training to learn right skills to get best results.

Presumably “best results” means not breaking your phone or your fingers. Or both.

And it seems that this has happened with iPhone users, and that’s why Apple has pulled it from iStore, presumably under some sort of nanny state, user protection clause like their infamous:

Apps that include games of Russian roulette will be rejected.

Anyway, I couldn’t just post about this and not actually do it, so I actually did it.

Here are the (rather straightforward) instructions – remember: no rockets or parachutes, folks.

And, once I’d agreed to their disclaimer, I chucked, with dreams of appearing on CTIA’s radar screens… but this was the best that I could manage (safely) with my precious Xperia T:


So far, anyway…
