**************************

Buzzbuka allows you and a friend to exchange secret messages without anyone around you even noticing!
** Trick your friends
** Have fun in classes or meetings
** Do a perfect magic trick
** Coordinate with your wingman in a bar
** Discreet communication with your significant other
** Use your imagination

How does it work?
*** Communicate with a friend by simply pressing the volume buttons on the side of one iPhone to make the other iPhone vibrate.
*** Both iPhones seem "off" and can stay in their respective pockets.
*** Come up with your own simple code (single vibration, double vibration) or use Morse-code.

Features:
-Use the volume buttons to communicate covertly, with the iPhone in your pocket.
-Log of sent and received messages.
-If you use morse code, messages get automatically translated in the logs.
-Works through either WiFi or 3G/EDGE.
-Automatically reconnects if you get disconnected (eg poor cellular reception).
-The speed of Morse code input/vibration can be changed to accommodate novices as well as pros!

Usage notes:
-Both you and your friend must have Buzzbuka installed and running.
-Until your friend connects, your messages are played back on your own iPhone. This mode allows you to practice.
