S.M.T.H. - Apps on Google Play

NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN! YOU MUST BE OLDER THAN 18 YEARS TO DOWNLOAD THIS GAME! DON´T PLAY IF YOU ARE A SISSY! S.M.T.H. (Send Me To Heaven) is a sports game. The player throws his phone as high as he can. The higher, the better. The phone registers the height and uploads result to leader boards. World Top 10, Week Top 10, Day Top 10, Local Top 10 (national) and Facebook Friends lists are available. SAFETY FIRST The game can be dangerous. Be careful not to injure yourself or others. Be always aware that there is enough space above you and around you. WARNING Throwing a smartphone high into the air may result in both damages to the smartphone, property and/or personal injury. The author and distributor of S.M.T.H. is not liable for any damages or injuries arising out of playing the S.M.T.H. game. HINTS Avoid rotations in the air. Rotating phones can give wrong results. Every phone is different, so it needs a different treatment. Start to throw your phone gently about 20 cm, find the way which works for you and increase the height gradually. Developing skills is part of the game! Q&A: Q: I want to change my nickname. How? A: Uninstall S.M.T.H. App and install it again. You will be asked to pick your name again. Q: Results are not precise. Why? A: The app measures the distance from hand to the highest point achieved - not from the ground! Also, if the phone rotates in the air results are not accurate. Q: How can somebody toss the phone over 40 meters? A: I received some photographs. I don't want to publish them as I wouldn't recommend to anyone to try that. It's not a safe practice. Q: I keep getting results 0 meters even if I toss my phone high. Why? A: Evey type of phone behaves differently as sensors are differently implemented. In most cases, the problem is caused by rotations in the air. Be sure that S.M.T.H. is the only App running on your phone. Place your phone on your palm, screen up. SLOWLY move your hand down. STOP for a moment. SMOOTHLY throw your phone up in the air about 50 cm from your hand, avoiding any rotation. Let it land on your palm, the screen still UP. Increase the height gradually. Learn proper skills. Master your tool. Become a champion! Post photos and videos of your attempts: Does your bro want it on iOS? He can buy it here: Copyright © 2012 - 2019 Petr Svarovsky
