[prMac.com] Minneapolis, Minnesota - Incoming text messages are not always as they appear. It may pay to verify that the text message that your coworker just received from the boss is truly from your boss before you start scrubbing the toilets on its order. A new iPhone application, Fake-A-Message 2.0 now allows users to set up fake text messages which they will later receive.
The fake text message is summoned at the press of a button or at a pre determined time. One can even reply to the text message and fake scripted responses will keep the conversation going. Identical to a typical iPhone incoming text or multimedia message, the fake messages will even fool fellow iPhone owners.
"Fake-A-Message allows you to fake multimedia messages as well as program elaborate replies for fake conversations" said developer Ed Williams. "Other fake texting applications only allow simple notifications."
Users of Fake-A-Message are finding numerous ways to put the app to good use. Some use it for entertainment, shocking friends with salacious pictures from former Congressmen or shamed athletes. Others use of the 'Random Excuse' button to generate an urgent text summons to facilitate a an early exit from an unwanted situation. Regardless of how you use Fake-A-Message, it is clearly a handy utility to have.
