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 good today!!

I still use this app all these years later! It’s an amazing app and the only thing it needs is a phone case that looks like a “Quadcorder” back! All the sounds are perfect and the different functions use the actual sensors in the phone to give you somewhat relevant values. Worth every penny!


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.
