November 30, 2012 - Written By Tom Dawson

Let’s be honest here, a lot of what we do with our smartphones, really isn’t that smart and if we can – we like to mess around with them for hours on end. Whether or not you’re into reading on your phone, or gaming, or browsing the web – whatever it might be you also want to have fun with your phone. One of the best ways to do this is some fun kind of app that can help you have a laugh. Today, we have an app that should bring a smile to your face and others – Fun Steps. Today we’re reviewing the Cartoon version of the app. Read on to find out why it’s so much fun.

Description: Often when you’re looking to play a prank or just have some fun, it’s hard to get all the equipment you need. But, if you’re a good actor, with Fun Steps all you need is yourself and your phone. The app will let you create sounds through the movement of your legs – once your phone is in your pocket – giving you the option to play around with whatever sounds you want. Headlining sound from the carton version: farts. Now I have your attention, read on!

How it Works: Fun Steps is a really simple to get started with and all you have to is to go ahead and download the app from the Play Store and then go ahead and launch it.

To pick which sound you want to make with the app, just cycle through the available sounds in the menu and then hit start:

It’s the sensitivity and delay that will determine how quickly the noises come and how long after you’ve moved your leg the noise will sound. Once you select all the settings you want and hit start, you’ll be given a count down to how long you have until you need to put it into your pocket:

Luckily the app will run through with you how to do this through the following screen:

Opinion: Fun Steps is basically, a whole lot of fun. There’s little more to say about it than that – it’s plain old fun! It’s also one of those wonderful apps that is what you make of it, if you and your friends are funny and active than you’re all going to get a kick out of this. The ability to change the delay and sensitivity can really help you pull off what you were going for.
