JiggleU: Shake your iPhone to Dial Numbers

Share:

The iPhone is a pretty damn good cellphone I might add. Actually, it’s more than a cellphone, it’s more like a small computer in your pocket. There are some features missing on the iPhone that a lot of people would hope for.

A few examples that come to mind are stereo bluetooth, the ability to customize sounds, and ability to make you fly. Since a lot of people talk on their cellphones while driving when they shouldn’t be, what’s one way to make it easier to dial, since there’s no voice activation dialing (who uses voice activation anyways)?

JiggleU is Here to the Rescue

The answer is in the following app, named JiggleU, available in the App Store. This is how the app works: you add up to seven of your favourite contacts and then to dial you shake your iPhone the respective number of times to dial. It’s a pretty cool concept and will work wonders when your hands are full and you can’t navigate to your favourites.

Here’s a video demonstration of the app and how it works:

JiggleU is available in the App Store for $2.99. It may be out of the 99 cent app price range for some, but it will come in handy for others. I did run into some problems with the app though. Adding contacts that were previously transferred to my iPhone via the SIM card won’t work. It will cause the app to crash. I did get in touch with Dennis, the developer of the app. He did confirm that the next update will fix this issue, so we might have to wait a while for perfect functionality. Another way around this is to just delete your contact and create a new one. Problem solved.

You can read more about JiggleU by clicking here and viewing it in the App Store. Add JiggleU to your dock and you’ll have the easiest way to dial your favourite numbers when your hands are full. Anyone out there using JiggleU? How’s it shakin’ for ya? 🙂

    I agree on the goofy app lol
    It could be fun if ur really drunk and forget a number (Like home or best friend, etc.) then all u do is read the blurry name and hopefully u shake it the right amount without going under or over and call someone else lol 😛
    Whats next…. *On knees begging for Stereo Bluetooth*

    Actually, I couldn’t disagree more. The iPhone is a pretty poor cellphone. Most of the features you look for in a real cell phone are not present like speed dialing (having to hit 2-3 buttons isn’t speedy), no voice dialing (a safety feature), crappy microphone audio that picks up everything around you, the speaker that can’t be used for handsfree cause it’s too weak, poor battery life, poor phone application interface, etc.

    Sure, if you buy a few apps here and there you can get some features normally found in many cellphones but why should you need to?

    If you want a phone, get a really cellphone. If you want a handheld high speed multimedia computer get an iPhone. I’ve owned cellphones even before the service was available (I was part of the first few hundred customers on the Cantel network) so I think I’m well placed to comment.

    So an app that allows you to shake your phone to dial a number…. cute, maybe even useful. But not useless it’s free.

    Cheers!!

  • Be careful with this app guys… I just read a surgeon general warning stating that if you shake your iPhone too many times it could cause blindness!!! 😀 LOL!!!
