The idea of shaking your phone to call your friends is a pretty strange idea. Unsurprising then that in this case it comes from one of the countries renowned for weird and wonderfully quirky ideas, South Korea.

But Shakeme is one of those apps whose use only becomes apparent once you start using it. While shaking-to-call doesn’t feel quite as intuitive as simply tapping on whoever it is you want to call, it definitely comes in handy in certain situations. For instance when it’s freezing cold and you don’t want to take your gloves off, just shake your phone instead.

The app lets you import your contacts from your main list. Once you have this set up, the app runs in the background. Give your phone a shake, and your contacts list appears. Hold your phone vertical to scroll down it, then make it horizontal again and give it another shake to stop on a contact and call them.

This may sound a bit complex, but it won’t take long for you to adapt to this quirky little means of calling people. It may not be the future, but there are definitely times when shaking-to-call trumps ordinary tapping. The presence of crucial options such as changing the shake and scroll sensitivities means that the app is tailored to your personal phone-shaking habits. A quirky and useful app.
