HOW IT WORKS 1. "Turn off" your phone (but not really) The prank is most effective if your audience believes your phone is turned off. To help convince your audience of this, the app displays a fake “power-off” screen. This screen looks like your iPhone’s real power-off screen, but when you “slide to power off”, instead of turning your phone off, it just turns your screen black, while the app continues to secretly run. 2. Shaking shows strange lights Once the screen appears to be turned off, demonstrate to your audience that something seems to be wrong with your phone because when you shake it, lights flicker faintly in the background. Let them try shaking it as well. 3. But if shaken too hard...it will break! Tell your audience that the harder they shake, the brighter the lights will get. Little do they know, the app is made so that if your phone is shaken hard enough, it will appear to break! Please keep in mind that the phone does not need to shake excessively hard to produce the “broken phone” animation. A normal increase in shaking should trigger the effect.
