I was inspired by the raw emotionality of Edvard Munch's "The Scream", and sought to capture that with a functional contemporary twist.

What it does

The app will scream if it is dropped, or thrown in the air.

How I built it

We built it with Swift, youtube tutorials, many dropped phones, and looove.

Challenges I ran into

The accelerometer is extremely rudimentary in the iPhone; we had difficulty having detecting when the phone was being thrown up, versus when it was descending.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

It worked!

What I learned

The iPhone accelerometer

What's next for Screaming Phone

If the impact on the iPhone is hard enough, it will bleed.
