    Hey guys,
    I'm the creator of Bacteria Bash.
    I'm developing an app, which has 5 different ways to "prank" people. I would like to know, what would you want to see in an app like that?

    I really would like to see a prank that's never been in any app before. Something different. I don't know. :p

    Well, it would be something do-able in an iPhone app! One example might be...Insult generator? :D

    Rick rolling would be cool. It's like you show something cool to your friends and then they get rick rolled.

    Isn't rick rolling like a sudden noise and a scary picture there or something? It isn't spam is it? Although that website did spam pop-ups when I tried to leave..

    Rick rolling was that music video thing. It isn't sudden noises or scary pictures. At least I don't think so. Search in google and you will find lots of results about rick rolling. :)

    I was thinking that trick where you get someone to stare at something very hard and a sudden scary picture appears and loud sound effect plays. Sorts of scares people, you know?

    Okay, rick rolling is when you go to a link expecting it to be something, but it's something else. I'm thinking of putting the sudden scary picture and sound effect thing. What do you guys think?

    You get your friend to stare at this dot, saying it's a magic trick or something, then you tap the screen, and a few seconds later, the picture appears and the sound effect plays! What do you guys think?

    Also, what about an insult generator? And the irritating things to do to people is generator. Like when you press a button one way appears.

    The best prank is when someone hands you their iPhone to prank you, and when the scary image flashes on the screen, you pretend to be scared and fling their phone into the nearest cement wall.

    People must be nuts to hand over an expensive device to another person with the intent of eliciting an involuntary fear response.

    :)

    rick rolling is not really effective on an idevice. i sent the link to my friend, but he viewed it on his ipod. all he had to do was click the home button...




    "Now formatting your ipod. Please Wait...."

    yeah, i was just going to suggest something that looked like a simple game or something cool to look at that requires the person to interact, and then some BSOD type screen comes up saying that "due to their user input error", the device has become broken and you need to send it in to apple for service or something
