  • Generic Company Place Holder Fake-A-Call

Ever wish you had a prearranged escape route for that awkward blind date, incredibly dull meeting, or overly loquacious friend? Enter free iPhone app Fake-A-Call. Launch it and push a button, and a timer counts down. When the timer runs out, the phone calls you with a ringtone, an authentic-looking call screen, and even a fake connect. Pretend someone is at the other end and get out of your bad situation with no hard feelings.

Fake-A-Call is configurable with a number of ring tones, as well as customizing the name of the fake caller and the wallpaper image associated with him or her. That way, the offending person can look over your shoulder and see exactly what you want them to see.

Frequent blind daters and those with friends who fit the description "best in small doses" will find a lot of use in Fake-A-Call.

Note: This link takes you to the vendor's site. From there, you can follow the link to the iTunes App Store, where you can download the latest version of the software.
