    I love it!

    Gone are the days of the emergency text to a friend for a rescue. :D

    Curious about the interface. What happens if I walk into something thats a suckfest. Is there a quick way to launch the app without people realizing my master plan?

    Also, what are the extra sounds?

    Its funny. Its not the price keeping me away, its the time it would take to install and perform my next backup!

    Looks like a cool app, should be funny. I just hope that this app isn't removed by Apple.

    That's actually very clever. Can you ONLY use the included ringtones, though? Or can you use your own too?

    I've used AT&Ts 'Instant Alibi™' a couple times. Works well enough and was free AFAIK.

    Wow, that really is awesome, thanks! Could think of sooo many situations in the past this would have come in handy. The only problem I can think of is that sometimes you don't know the exact time you're going to need it to ring...

    The wallpaper is included! It's part of the fake "I have a phonecall" screen that displays allong with answer and decline. You can only answer the fake call by the way!

    a reviewer on the app store said that the phone does not "light up" (screen doesn't turn on) when the fake call comes in.

    Is that true?

    That's true, confirmed on two iPhones. It just rings.

    Thank you. I may pass for now. Or not depends. I hope the API allows them to to it someday.

    I guess that could be confusing. If the phone locks while you wait for it, and you appear to unlock it just to get to the app to see the fake call, it might tip them off.

    Best thing to do is program the app to never dim, but to fake a black screen, and lock the touch screen until the timer goes off or you push home to get out of the app.

    There is a BUG in this app:

    I have confirmed it twice so far. Set the app to call in one minutes and sleep the phone. Out of four tries, it rang twice in two of the trials. The other two times it never rang. I woke up the phone and then the app continued it's countdown untill it rang. Not too good.
