If you’ve been yearning to play a prank on your friend who never misses doting on their iPhone publicly (which is likely to irritate you after a while if you don’t own one) then iPhoneception is the tool for the job. It’s a set of HTML5 web apps that fools the user into believing that it’s the iPhone homescreen. And when they try to open an app, the magic begins. They get greeted with all kinds of weird things like explosion of home apps, apps falling due to gravity, and so on. The perfect iPhone prank!
The way you put it on your friend’s iPhone is that you visit the iPhoneception site in the mobile browser of the phone when they are not around, add it to the home screen, load it and then lock the phone. Then wait for your friend to unlock the phone, start using it and enjoy the panic on their face.
- Prank tool that mimics iPhone’s homescreen.
- HTML5 based web app.
