ThrowMeApp is a camera app which will magically turn your Android phone into something useful. The idea is that you keep your precious iPhone safe in your pocket and then toss your Android phone into the air as high as it will go.
The app then takes over, firing the shutter automatically and snapping an aerial shot of you. neat, right?
Ironically, the only phones you’ll want to use for this trick are the cheap Android handsets with shitty cameras. Still, a bad photo is better than no photo, I guess.
To use ThrowMeApp, toss the camera high. The app uses the camera’s accelerometers to try to find the apex of its flight, and to make sure that the lens is facing down. It then snaps the pic, and it’s over to you. Now all you need to do is catch it. Or just let it smash on the asphalt parking lot and hope that the microSD card inside survives.
The app is of course free, as Android owners don;t want to pay for anything — and why would they? Their phones were free after all.
