The 'See How High You Can Throw Your Phone' App

Array
Gear  |  Phone


'Send Me To Heaven' is a real Android app (rejected by Apple for “encouraging behavior that could result in damage to the user’s device”) that measures how high you throw your phone in the air.
"S.M.T.H. (Send Me To Heaven) is a sport game. Player throws his phone as high as he can. The higher, the better. The phone registers the height and uploads result to leader boards. World Top 10, Week Top 10 and Day Top 10 lists are available.
Hints: Be careful not to injure yourself or others. Be always aware that there is enough space above you and around you. Do some training to learn right skills to get best results. Switch on GPS on your phone and allow the App to use location to be able to take part in local competitions.
Known issues: Game works only on ARMv7 phones. Some phones show wrong results (usually 0 meters) when they rotate."
It is a free game that measures the altitude of your device as it soars (hopefully) gracefully through the air. Catching it isn't a requirement!

Gear  |  Phone
Google also announced the next version of their mobile OS, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, which comes with a range of new features. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean now has Bluetooth Smart support (a.k.a. Bluetooth Low-Energy), and the latest 3D graphics in the form of OpenGL ES 3.0.
"Lightweight and portable, tablets are perfect for sharing with others. Last October we added support for multiple users. Each person has a separate space and can freely customize the tablet experience, from lockscreen to wallpaper, apps and folders.  In Android 4.3, we’re introducing restricted profiles, which let you manage per-user access to apps and content. Restricted profiles can be used in any number of situations. For example, restricted profiles enable parental controls, so certain family members are prevented from accessing mature content. Alternately, retail stores can use tablets as kiosks that show product information, or shops can use tablets as point of sale systems, all while limiting access to apps." [ link ]
