Arrow [APP][1.6+/2+/3+] Jolt: Prank and Alarm

Hello,

Jolt is a small and simple ad-supported application that can be used either
  1. for making practical jokes to your friends or
  2. getting you alarmed when somebody messes with your phone
Jolt uses the accelerometer of your phone to detect motion and plays an alarm , a funny sound or a custom sound instantly or after a sort delay

Features
✓ Many sounds to choose from (siren, car alarm, scream, farts, burp and more)
✓ Choose any sound from sd card (requires a 3rd party file manager like ASTRO, OI File Manager, ES File Explorer etc)
✓ Adjust the sensitivity of the motion detector
✓ Choose the delay between movement and sound
✓ Vibrating during playback
✓ It can detect motion even when device is in stand-by mode
✓ Option to pause during incoming calls
Download
(Sorry but I am not allowed to post direct links)
Feel free to report any bugs or requests here.

Hello all,

I am trying to figure out 3 comments in market stating that Jolt is not working in sleep mode. So if anyone wants to help please just post here or pm me your device, rom and whether jolt is working or not in sleep / standby mode. If it is not working a logcat copy would be very helpful.

So far I have tested it and it is working for sure on the following devices:
Desire (stock rom, oxygen, devnul), Desire S, Wildfire, SE x10 Mini, Galaxy Tab

Three comments in market suggest that it might not work in sleep mode on:
Evo 4G (CM7), Atrix 4G and ZTE Blade.

Thanks,
George

PS. Version 1.3.5 is coming soon with new feature of choosing arming delay.

Thumbs up New Version is out:

I have just uploaded a new version to the market:

The main new features are:
  • New option to pause alarm during incoming calls
  • Option to work in sleep mode removed as this now always on
  • New slider to select activation delay
  • Better support for some devices that had problem working in sleep mode
  • Added a simple activation countdown

Most phones should now work in sleep / standby mode. Unfortunetely a few will still turn off accelerometer when the screen goes off. Please report to me your device and android verion if you have such a phone.

Thanks for your support,
George
