    Default Review: Lie Detector (crApp)

    The Lie Detector App claims that it can detect when a person is lying, 100% of the time I was unsuccessful in getting the app to work. When you open the app it tells you to input a few things about the person that is being questioned. And in the last blank, you enter the question you want to see if the person is lying about.

    Once you hit “Save,” the app will ask the person that they should be truthful about, as it is supposed to calibrate the application for the one final question being asked.

    I must say I do like the graphics in the application, and the sound meter seems to move adequately when speaking into the mic. However, every time I told the truth, I got this screen:

    …and every time I was lying, I got:

    Needless to say I haven’t got this app to work at all. I tried it on a friend and it worked 1 in 5 tries…after all I would have expected more…it’s a 50/50 chance…

    I give it 1 star for graphics.

    For $2.99 this is CrApp


    -Doesn’t work

    Now we're REALLY getting ambitious here.

    Thanks for the review. Awesome concept but the execution sounds less than stellar. Too bad; an app. like this could have come in handy with some ex's...

    Default Why would anyone want to even bother?

    Even without reading the review, this so-called app has no chance to be even entertaining unless a 7-year old gets ahold of his dad's iPhone and gives it a try. Surely the developer can come up with something either more useful or entertaining....

    Default Acme Lie Detector for fun

    The better app is the joke detector, Acme lie detector. It looks pretty cool, real enough to fool the gullible and the best part is you can dpredetermine the outcome on the fly. Just tilt the iphone a bit in the direction of the true or false result and you get "your" answer.

    The button for your thumb looks good and changes to a thumb print when you touch it, then the needle begins to swing back and forth a few times "hunting" the result. It then locks on true or false on the meter and the red or green light comes "on" and a audio sound signifies the result (they remind me of a game show sounds)

    closest thing to a screen I found

    So many apps so little time....
