Shake Banner

By Ringmaster Mobile

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Do you need to send a message across the room at a party? Or get the band's attention at a concert? Trying to hail a taxi? Or disrupt a boring meeting?

Then you need Shake Banner! Mac|Life calls it "novel," "simple-minded amusement" and "a fun and offbeat way to get your message across." Shake Banner has made it to the top 100 utilities in 24 countries, including #4 in Taiwan and #16 in France!

Shake Banner from Ringmaster Mobile uses the accelerometer and a quirk of human vision to create the illusion of whole words floating in midair. Scrolling banner apps work letter by letter, but Shake Banner shows whole words so you get your message across faster. Plus, it's easy to use and fun!



❖ It's faster than scrolling—single words read instantly, and four lines take just two seconds

❖ Moving screen gives you a taller and wider canvas for your message

❖ Shaking motion attracts attention

❖ Choose among thousands of colors with just one touch

❖ Just shake it to start showing your message—no extra taps

❖ Shows all Unicode characters for all languages, not just ASCII

❖ Remembers last message, even when you quit

❖ Full support for bi-directional text

❖ Built-in tips to help you practice making great-looking messages

iPad owners: Because you need to shake your device quickly with one hand to get the cool floating word effect, Shake Banner is not recommended for iPad.




❖ Lively animated backgrounds

❖ Color fades and random color changes

❖ Font choices

❖ One-touch access to message history

❖ Ads are disabled

Customer Reviews

Nice idea, but needs work

We remember the LED toys that work on this principal, but this App is not well designed for that goal. Firstly for this to work right it needs better gyroscope tracking (the App GYROPAINT uses superior gyro-tracking as a quick example). Secondly this App fails to BUFFER THE TEXT as an image (instead it generates the text as the gyro moves for very poor results). Thirdly this App fails to use the gyro to recognize rotation which then should be used to rotate the generated photo image (if the App were programmed correctly) to match the orientation of the iDevice to display the text in a level horizon.

Supper cool

This app is so much fun to play with and so helpful. Especially when its dark outside. This app is so fun and i love the colors. :)
