Do you often find yourself trapped in awkward situations? Do you wish that you could summon an instant escape from encounters which drag on too long?

We feel your struggle and so do the creators of this new app, “Tickle.”

The software they have designed recognizes low key signals, which you send by tapping or stroking your phone in an unobtrusive manner.

The app detects the subtle gesture and generates a fake phone call to your phone. This allows for a desecrate escape route from awkward situations at any point.

Unfortunately, the real “Tickle” is just a glorified poke app. This idea seems so much better.
