FREE APPS of the MONTH

APPS TO PRANK YOUR FRIENDS WITH

April is the month of fun, frolic and pranks, and a few apps in your phone can pack in a lot of thrills

DUDE, YOUR CAR!
Platform: iOS
Description: This is perfect for that one friend who is obsessed with their ride. Take a picture of their car/bike/scooter and add some photo effects – scratches, dents, broken glass, etc – and send the edited image to your friend. Watch sparks fly.

 

 

 

 

 

HORROR CAMERA
Platform: Android, iOS
Description: Make every picture you take seem like you took it in a haunted area. Gather your friends and family for a group image, snap a picture through these apps and add ghost-like wispy additions to the capture. Cue horror.

 

 

 

 

 

ULTRA VOICE CHANGER
Platform: Android, iOS
Description: For the old-school prankster who still loves prank calls, this app will come in handy. Record your voice, turn it robotic or ‘possessed’ or anything else you’d like, and send the recording to an unwitting friend.

 

 

 

 

 

SOUND PRANK/PRANK*
Platform: Android/iOS
Description: Play a random sound through one of these apps (crickets chirping or a baby crying), hide your phone from plain sight, and enjoy watching your friends in the room hunt nook and cranny for the source of the noise.

 

 

 

 

 

IDIOT TEST/SCARYCAM
Platform: Android/iOS
Description: This app starts up as a typical quiz app. Pass on your phone to a friend to answer some simple questions. And then randomly, in the middle of the quiz, when a scary face pops up on the screen, your friend will jump out of their skin. ScaryCAM provides the additional feature of recording your friend’s priceless reaction.
