Remember that infamous iPhone app Wobble which became an instant hit on the iPhone? hdWobble brings what Wobble brought to iPhone – “Bouncy bouncy fun ;)”
The great folks over at XDA Developers never seem to dissapoint us or do they? GravityBalls is yet another free accelerometer-based game which utilizes G-Sensor to control the game. With the movement of your hand (left/right tilting) you control the paddle that explodes the balls. Tilting up and down changes the gravitational force applied to the balls. This way you can accelerate them, slow them down or even make them fly to heaven again.
5. Klaxon (Alarm Clock)
Klaxon is a free simple to use alarm clock with added support for utilizing G-sensor in Windows Mobile phones. What makes this application special is its ability to enable users to interact with the application, through motion or light. Users are given the options to shake the phone, flip it over or turn it towards light to snooze or turn off the alarm.
Here is an example: If you set up a wake up alarm for 9:00 AM. Just flip over the phone to snooze it for 10 minutes or shake the phone to turn off the alarm completely.
