Blow "View Haloo!" and let the chase begin!
But do any of these 'apps' manage to get anywhere near the 126dB sound-pressure-level of a genuine Vuvu?

With the World Cup now underway, iPhone owners can download a plethora of apps that can turn their Jobsian handhelds into simulacra of that ear-splittingly infuriating noisemaker, the vuvuzela. Should you choose the convenience of a pocketable vuvuzela rather than branding yourself as an obnoxious doofus by carrying the actual …
My son had the app on his phone on Saturday evening. Shaking the phone up and down causes the phone to sound like a bee fart.

One of my neighbour's kids has a real one. I want to wrap it round his neck. In a kind and neighbourly fashion you understand.
I just bought a real vuvuzela at Lidl for one pound 99 pence. Might not be entirely authentic, as it is just two feet long (60cm) assembled. It comes apart in two pieces that screw together. It is VERY LOUD. I can't see paying anything for an electronic simulation played on a mobile phone. There is no way that could emulate the essential feature, VOLUME.
That said, the people who are buying the simulations have previously bought an iphone, so symbol over substance will satisfy.
