If you're going to do something, do it properly. A fine creed, and just as applicable to playing the pink oboe as any other worthwhile hobby. Designed not only to tell you how well you are doing it and what effect it’s having, but also to encourage the development of your technique and make it a more pleasurable experience, this …

I beta tested the iPhone version, but I couldn't 'complete the game' with it. Apparently I was holding it wrong.

hmmm

This is exactly the sort of hands-on approach needed to finally settle that age-old question; just which nation is full of wankers ? Is there an iPhone version coming (as I would expect that the number of wankers would soar if so...) ?

Like the idea of the "encouraging" sounds.. but surely a picture would be more appropriate? You could have two, even - one of Halle Berry playing tennis perhaps for those racing towards the quick shufty, and another of Anne Widdecombe's ankle for those looking to extend their stamina... ?

Good to see it's free though, I wouldn't pay for such an app what with being so tight-fisted...

For a minute there...

I was going to congratulate you on the work that went into your April fool joke, but unless you've gone to the trouble of registering an app on the market *and* somehow getting backdated comments on it, the app is real! lmao!

I'm still not brave enough to download it though!

Reverse April Fool

I bet el reg has been <aholding on to this" story so that they can let it go on April 1st to provoke a flood of "Nice April Fools joke guys!" comments from the commentard brigade.

Worked a treat too going by my brief scan of the comments section.

Nicely played El Reg!

It should have been released on the iPhone, the potential market there is massive.

Joking apart

And there will be lots.

Inside this is a pretty clever bit of signal processing reading the accelerometers.

Got to know that with DSP you can make love (at least to yourself) and not war.

Well-crafted poisson article.

At first I misread "Need an ambiance to help you?" as "Need an ambulance to help you?". Unfortunately that may be true for some users.

Don't worry; this app will come pre-installed on the iPhone 5. Get your orders placed now!

If so it's quite elaborate as there are comments on https://market.android.com/details?id=me.mga.parquimetro from a few days ago

Obvious.

When the market tires of apps that make farting noises, this is the next thing to try.

It also perfectly suits the average iPhone fanboy too!

"playing the pink oboe"

Wrong euphemism I believe.

When playing the oboe you don't just have to put your hands on it, you also have to put one end in your mouth.

Which is sort of the point.

+1 for the fact that it's aimed at wankers and yet not being for the iPhone being a bit of a giveaway here....

Missing sales opportunity

Believability reduced by absence of accessory business model. Where is the special glove to hold your phone to maximize the sensitivity of the accelerometer?
