You Shake iLaugh… well, I guess you know what this app does already! Shake it and an illustrated mouth will either laugh at you or with you, depending on how you choose to see it.
According to the iTunes App Store description, “the harder you shake it the harder it will laugh, until it reaches an uncontrollable eye-watering hysterical laugh!” Now I’m not calling Roman Reyhani a liar, but the distance between a mild chuckle and “eye-watering” laughter is pretty short, and I shook the crap out of my iPhone! The most I heard was some good, robust laughter but I wouldn’t rate it anywhere near “hysterical”.
You can choose between a laughing man or a laughing woman and both are kind of funny to listen to, but the truth is this app feels like a slightly fancier version of Wooo Button. The big difference is that Wooo Button is free and You Shake iLaugh costs a buck.
Laughter really can be contagious and if you’re always feeling like you need to choke the shit out of someone then maybe this app could serve as some cheap therapy. Otherwise, you might want to temper your expectations here and only spend the buck if you’re really in need of a quick chuckle. It’s definitely worth an actual laugh or two, but prepare for it to be short-lived.
