New App Encourages Phone Throwing

No not for Naomi Campbells in training—you throw it up in the air, not at someone. Norwegian developer CarrotPop has developed “Send Me to Heaven,” which encourages users to toss their phone as high as possible to obtain points. The app, which is only available on Android phones, uses the phone’s accelerometers to measure the distance the phone traveled. Don’t think there isn’t any glory in this game—if you throw your phone high enough, your score could make it onto the worldwide leader board.
