- Make sure you have the caller on speaker when you use Fake-An-Excuse from an iPhone -- otherwise the caller will not be able to hear the sounds clearly.

- Use the 'Configure Sound List' button to configure the excuse list. Items that have a checkmark in the configure sound screen will be displayed on the main picker wheel. Tap an item to check/uncheck it.

- If you have the Repeat switch on, the currently selected excuse will start when all sounds are finished. This means you can start playing the Elevator excuse sound with Repeat set to On, and then switch to the Loosing Signal excuse sound and it will play when the Elevator sound is completed, helping you pull of an even smoother escape.

- Commit fully to your excuse! If they say, "What?", or ask other questions, just hang up and attend to the 'pressing issue' at hand...

- Don't let your significant other see this application installed on your iPhone!

This app is decent but here's some sounds that are just plain stupid - "a hackers taking over this call" "feed your cat" "broke something" "bees are everywhere" and some more. These sounds are just pathetic and don't work. Now my favorite is the doorbell one because you can say stuff like "my friend just got here." Overall is a pretty cool app but you need to work on some stuff.



In order for this app to work, you have to have your phone on speaker while playing the background noise. It works that way on my iPhone. Not sure about other phones.



This app is awesome. My friend kept me on the phone for 2 hours 47 minutes once talking about random stuff.

You have saved my life. THANK YOU! 😍
