DonTouch by Fabian Heuwieser

DonTouch by Fabian Heuwieser

DonTouch is a fun and useful app if you are like many people who don't like others touching your BlackBerry. You launch it via the icon and then you can choose when it should go active (either in 5 sec or 10 sec). After the elapsed time if anyone touches (clicks a button or picks it up) your device, it will play a loud alarm sound or what other sound you choose. Whether you use DonTouch as a prank or to deter those nosy co-workers from snooping while you're in a meeting, you will be pleased with how easy it is to set up and how effective it is. DonTouch is compatible with BlackBerry Storm and Torch devices and is on sale for just $.99 (regularly $2.99) with a free trial available.
