I would be interested in a generic "slap" tool that could perform other actions. For example, slap the right side of the screen to launch some application, run a script, or whatever. This should be adaptable to that type of utility shouldn't it?

In addition to my previous post, I forgot to add that the drive failed because of the slapping motion not the software installed.

Sorry to the developer if that wasn't made clear!

Very good utilisation of the SMS feature, full stars for all features, but be careful!

I installed this a while back on my Macbook Pro, all was fine for 4 days, then the mac wouldn't boot up.

Took it to the local APple Centre, who told me after running their test etc, that the Hard Drive heads had crashed into the discs. They asked, "Had the laptop been jolted or dropped recently?"

Obviously I didn't tell them I had been slapping my Macbook Pro around, and luckily I now have a brand new Macbook Pro, thanks to AppleCare.

Might have just been my machine that was faulty, but take heed!
