As featured on Comedy Central's popular television show The Stephen Colbert Report! (http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/262597/january-26-2010/tip-wag---creigh-deeds---scarebear-trail-companion)
This application is perfect for hikers, bikers, walkers, birdwatchers, and anyone who's trekking outdoors. Also perfect for spectators to use as a noisemaker at this year's winter olympics! It's the only application that replicates bear bells, which for years have been recommended by safety experts and widely used by experienced outdoorspeople. Once activated on your iPhone, ScareBear Trail Companion emits a steady audible warning to alert any creature (animal or human) in your immediate area or up the trail of your presence and to prevent them from being unnecessarily startled and angered. Choose from 3 sounds - bells, clapping, or rock-filled can.
Additionally, this application provides you with an air horn, recommended by safety experts as an effective means of scaring away any animal (for example, a bear, mountain lion, or coyote) in your path. This application (just like any real air horn, bear bells or any other preventative measure) is not a guaranteed means of scaring away animals, is to be used at your own risk and is no substitute for using your common sense in the outdoors, so be smart and safe!
What's New in Version 1.0.1
Minor Bug Fixes
This sort of works. I was out on a trail today on the back shoulder of Black Butte and was greeted by a beautiful momma bear. She reared up, so I geared up with my iPhone.
Momma bear immediately hit the ground running... Towards me. I stood my ground like all the survival guides tell you, blasting away on my iPhone. She lunged for the iPhone, taking my hand with her.
Granted, she left me alone once she had the iPhone in her jowls, but needless to say, I am feeling quite a bit less handy than before.
Make this work for 1 gen puhlease
Please make this work for the 1 gen itouch as us ghetto dwellers need to scare away the bill collectors!
Absolutely pointless for me but I downloaded it simply because it was on the colbert report.
