new mobile `sport game' app - dubbed `Send Me to Heaven' - brings `disruptive' technology to the fore; encouraging the users to hurl their handsets as high into the air as they possibly can, for the purpose of "fun."
The simple concept of the `Send Me to Heaven' app is that the elevation of a person's throw of a handset in the air is measured by the software of the smartmobe's accelerometer. The game app has a global leader board to persuade users to achieve the Olympian aims of hurling the handset the fastest, the highest, and the strongest.
Carrot Pop, the creators of the `Send Me to Heaven' app are encouraging participants to ensure that the GPS functionality on their handsets is turned `On' when they hurl their device in the air. The app's creators also said that, after some time, they intend organizing "national and even city challenges" involving smartphone throws.
However, given the `disruptive' technology behind the `Send Me to Heaven' app, the Apple App Store has banned the app on the grounds that it "encourages behaviour that could result in damage to the user's device." But the app is still available for free on the Google Play store.
Users who download the `Send Me to Heaven' app have to first give their consent to a disclaimer confirming that they are playing the game at "entirely their own risk."
