uShutup is an app for the iPhone that is meant to give you an excuse to get off the phone. The concepts is interesting, but are the sounds realistic enough for this app to actually work?
There are eight different sound options around the wheel that are meant to give you that excuse you’re looking for to get off the phone. Each one has three different options to select from if you highlight them and press sound options in the top right. These variations will allow you to mix things up and hopefully find a sound that’s a little bit more fitting for the situation you’re in.
To use this app, you need to turn your phone on speakerphone mode, exit the phone call, and use the app to play a sound. Also, make sure your phone isn’t on silent or they won’t be able to hear the sound coming from the speaker. Once you’ve got it all set up, you should be good to go to play a sound.
There are a few issues with this app. First, the sounds for some of them cut off way too short, so you’re forced to listen to them in loop. This can definitely break the illusion that they’re real. Second, the sounds don’t sound that great quality and may be easy for someone to see through. If there was an option to record your own and add it to the wheel that would be great, but unfortunately there isn’t. Interesting concept, but we doubt it would fool most people.
