There are applications for Android that at first glance may seem useless. In fact, its original purpose may just be to entertain. However, sometimes users may find them a different and more beneficial purpose than their initial conception. iScream or Make Me Scream is one of those applications. This is a project created a long time ago by the developer WormHole, which apparently does not do anything complex, but beyond its obvious name made to entertain, you can use it as an application that can warn you in case your cell phone falls out of your bag or pocket. In this way you would avoid losing it on the street or on the court where you played spontaneously..

The cell phone "screams" when it falls

As the name implies, this app makes the phone "scream" when it falls. Probably using the device's accelerometer to detect the fall or movement of the cell phone, it can simulate a scream when it hits the ground.

Obviously, the "scream" that the cell phone makes when falling is something that the developer has implemented. There are various screams available in the app, including the scream of a woman, a man, tarzan, homer, etc. However, if you want something more discreet you can record your own sound so that it is what it sounds when the phone or mobile falls. Unfortunately there is no option to choose a sound available in the device storage..

How does it work

Regarding how to use it, you just have to open the application and click on the «Start» button so that the app begins to monitor a possible fall and do its work.

The application will remain running in the background or when the screen turns off. Otherwise it wouldn't make much sense. However, you must make sure to deactivate the Android battery saver for this app, something that is usually in the System Settings section, "Battery" option. If you don't know how to do this on your phone, the dontkillmyapp.com website has instructions for each brand of device..

If the volume of the scream or sound is low, when you are choosing the scream you must increase the volume (with the physical volume button of the cell phone) just when it is heard. The application saves the volume level at that moment and keeps it for when it drops. If you don't do it right when you are testing the scream or sound (listening to it) the volume variation will have no effect.

Also note that if there are two immediate consecutive crashes, the app will only respond to the first crash. Obviously, be careful while testing this app. I recommend that you do it on a bed to avoid damaging your mobile.

Conclution

Although the application has not been updated since 2014, it has worked very well on my Huawei Y5 phone with Android 9. It is not complex at all, so, despite being discontinued, it should work well on any cell phone.
