Would anyone please be kind enough to review this application which I just produced? You can check out more and interact with other users at www.imeterphone.com. You can see a video of the hilarious functionality as well. Thank you so much!:D

I got it because I have an 8 year old (and his daddy) that are easily amused.

Ok, it has serious potential....but is the slide meter supposed to be transparent? It isn't any fun if the prankee sees that I'm controlling a slide meter. It either has to be transparent (or even a small button that my thumb would cover), or make a quick settings option where I can go in beforehand and adjust my level of awesomeness or lameness.

Otherwise, this could be extremely fun.

You nailed the sounds, IMHO.

Thanks for checking it out Buddy, it means a lot to hear some external feedback. I would encourage you to please post any uses you find fun between you and your child. A lot of the posted uses so far have been pretty sexual or "immature". It would be nice to find fun uses from a child perspective.

i like the sound and flexibility of use but there could be some fun to be had with it as well as some graphical improvements. The website www.imeterphone.com has some pretty funny uses posted (whether they are true or not i cant tell) like gaydar

1. No link to the app in this post - FAIL
2. No link to the app from the linked site - FAIL
3. The meter reacts to a clearly visible slider - FAIL
4. "Needing a good icebreaker to talk to that hot girl at the end of the bar?" EPIC FAIL

I'm sorry but this app is just way too much of a gimmick and doesn't seem to be worth even the advertised 99c, how about using the meter functionality for something useful like a WiFi signal strength app (although the API may not allow that, can't recall for sure) or even doing something like make it use the tilt meter to control the level so it isn't so obvious.

Valid Points here, thanks:
1) http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=297145087&mt=8
2) Added in the About iMeter Section
3) Its very minimal when you place your thumb over it and move it around while pointing at friends. But valid for enhancement.
4. Trust me, this thing will get you laid

Your review -- FAIL

Maybe you could be a bit more obtuse about it. :rolleyes:
