Ever find yourself in one of those situations you don’t really want to be in? You know, a bad date, a work meeting or whatever. Sometimes maybe you just want an excuse to take the rest of the day off of the job. Well, there’s an app for that. Actually, there are several apps for that. Whether you need to fake a phone call or fake a text message, someone out there has made it.
Let’s take a look at what’s available for those bad situations you just need to get yourself out of with a convenient phone call.
Fake Conversation is one of our favorite apps of this kind. It lets you set up a fake call, just like most of the other apps on this list, but it has the added feature of speaking to you in order to give you a script. For instance, the phone may say, “Yes, this is his roommate,” at which point you repeat that line, then “Is he okay?” and so on. It sets it up so your timing and delivery are more spot-on than if you were just talking to yourself pretending to be concerned with no voice on the other end.
This one can be used for fun, or to really trick someone into thinking you have something important to do. You simply set up a fake SMS conversation and a time. You can set up the person “sending” the text, and at exactly what time you will receive it. You can set up a small script and a duration between messages. We had the conversation below with Steve Jobs about the iPhone 5.
Fake Calls is another great app that provides…well, fake calls. It’s 99 cents, but it has great features that make it more than worth the price. As with the other applications, you can set up the name and number, you can select a wallpaper, or set it to vibrate. It also has a cool feature in which you will receice multiple calls for declining, great for if you want to make it seem urgent.
This is another one that gives you a script to work with. The interesting feature in this app? it lets you make fake FaceTime calls. We’re not sure a fake FaceTime call will get you out of a bad situation, but the rest of the features are nice, and the fun of faking a FaceTime call can’t be overlooked.
There You Have It …
There you have it: apps that will get you out of a bad situation. Always remember to load up with one of these apps just in case you find yourself in a situation that you want to get out of. Rather than having to come up with some excuse, you can fake an important call, and get yourself outta there.
