"An innovative idea that is executed very well... Buzzbuka is an innovative and polished application that deserves all the praise it can get." review

"I just wanted to let you know that it's refreshing to see such a well designed app. This is a really cool idea and stands out from all the garbage in the app store." ---MacRumors forums


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.

-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.
