Play while your phone is IN YOUR POCKET!

See Pocket Tap in the iPhone App Store

No one will know. No other apps like it.

Are you ever bored waiting in line, sitting in class, at a wedding, etc.? You don't want to look like a goober playing on your phone, but there's nothing else to do. Now you can play Pocket Tap - and no one will even know you're playing!

HOW IT WORKS

Pocket Tap will buzz or pause a total of eight times. Tap the rhythm back anywhere on the screen.

Get it right and another pattern will begin. Get it wrong and you'll feel an immediate buzz. The game automatically starts over after a few seconds.

So say the phone buzzes 5 times, pauses 1 time, then buzzes 2 times. You should tap (at the same speed) 5 times, pause 1 time, then tap 2 times.

Play a few games while watching the screen. Once you get the hang of it, stick it in your pocket and get your game on!

TOUCH THE SCREEN!!!

Make sure you tap the screen directly with your finger - the iPhone cannot detect a tap through cloth. So put your hands in your pockets!

You can also choose 'black out mode' under settings. When the game starts the screen will turn black. This lets you hold the phone to your side while playing... no one will even know your phone is on!

POINTS

The harder the rhythm, the more points you get!

You can also get bonus points for choosing a 'failure sound' (under settings). Why get points for a sound? Because if your phone's in your pocket and it makes a frog sound when your game is over, people will look at you funny. And we think that's hilarious. Now that's what we call a game with consequences! (You don't get points if your sound is off)
