Sneaky app makes your iPhone 'play dead'

Play Deada

By Rosa Golijan

There are times when you just plain don't want someone to borrow your phone. Maybe it's because he's got greasy hands, maybe it's because she'll try to snoop through messages, or maybe it's because you hate it when other people touch your beloved gadget.a

No matter what your reason, an app called Play Dead will give you a simple way to avoid handing over your iPhone — by making it look like it's dying.a

All you have to do is download and open the free app and suddenly your iPhone's display will show nothing but that pesky shutdown screen which appears briefly before an iPhone with a dying battery turns off. "Sorry," you'll be able to mutter as you gesture to your iPhone, "looks like my battery's as empty as my soul."a

Of course, as soon as the annoying gadget-borrower backs off, you can simply tap the home button and go back to enjoying a game of Angry Birds — until you really do drain your battery.a
