Very amusing fake application

I’ve used this application to make a point on a few occasions, including to several years ago when I proved to my 8 year-old daughter that I could detect how many cookies she ate. Two problems exist with its use on OS15: (1) Emergency function no longer launches count animation and (2) there is no sound and nothing to adjust under Settings.

Still the Best and Most Fun!

I have used this app for years, have had great fun with it, and thoroughly enjoyed it! I have spoofed people, played games with it, and just plain relaxed with it. The setup is colorful, active, realistic, and has a variety of functions. There are no sound issues. Just remember to turn off your silence setting on your phone or other device and make sure that the sound icon on the app is green. If it is red, just touch the setting to change it. While it is always possible to add real-life functions to the buttons, the virtual functions are quite entertaining. I have spoofed a fair number of people with this app and enjoyed quite a number of laughs. This app is great, entertaining, fun, and very well done. Great thanks to the developer for designing and maintaining it!


Fun tricorder app

It has one bug that kept me from giving it 5 stars. The emergency data upload button no longer shows the upload video/animation. Otherwise everything else works.
