Default Cool Ziggy Lights on handlink app for iphone!

Has anyone else seen the Ziggy Lights-on application for the iphone?
It turns your iphone screen into a replica of Al's handlink,it flashes and beeps when you touch it and even squawks when you hit the side with your hand!
Its not as good as having a real Quantum Leap handlink,but still pretty cool,and a bargain to download at 99cents!

I just can't afford one, and I'm not going to try to, due to my job situation.

Did you read the disclaimer at the end of the product description?

This application will not turn you into a hologram, you will not be able to walk through solid objects while using it. You have been warned.

No reason to get an iphone now, lol

lol, that's funny!

Anyone know if any Verizon phones can get a similar application? Everytime something cool comes out, it's always from the other company.

Now I actually find myself wishing that I had an iPhone! It's a shame I don't talk to people enough to need one, or even a phone plan in general (I have a TracFone, on which I talk an average of 5-10 minutes a month).

I've thought about "naming" my PDA Ziggy. Not very original though!

Sorry, you're right, Jassian. Handy is a german word. So I hope it will be available for other mobile phones sometimes, too.

I've heard the German teacher use the word "Handy" in class, but she never said what it was, so I thought it could have been a cognate for "handy" in the English sense. Thanks for clearing that up, Jassian.

No probs. i never quite found out while they marketed them as handy's if they wanted to use and english word, why not mobile? Oh well. It gives people something to chat about

Edit: perhaps Handy is easier to say for a german: "Haendi" while mobile is "Mohubahil" (with un sounded h-es)

I only knew what "Handy" meant last year when I was watching the show "QI".

I wish I would have read the disclaimer before trying to walk through the vault door at the bank!

Right now the app is only available for the iphone as far as I know,but I am sure it eventually will find its way onto other phones.

That would be a great story to read in the newspaper.

"Man who thinks he's a hologram from 1999 tries to walk through bank vault!"

I only learnt that non-Germans didn't know what it meant after I left the country .

Well I guess you can get away with a lot if you explained you thought you were a hologram
You may have to dodge the guys in white holding the straight jacket though. Except, if they're holograms.. then you can walk straight through... hmmm Maybe not worth investigating until further notice.
