No matter how good an action movie is, horror is still the best genre to me. It’s just because when you’re out to see a horror movie in a cinema theatre, you just don’t know how big it can be because there is a lot of scope for creativity and there are no limits as long as you’re talking about fictional horror. Sometimes you don’t need any alien graphic images to create the terror; just a ghost like face with a yelling sound is enough. But it’s also true that these horror images can sometime lay down the concept of best comedy ideas known as Pranks. Yes, today we are in a mood of playing a prank and that’s why we made our way to ScareTimer. Let’s see if it stands to our expectations or not.


ScareTimer – Scare Prank  is the new Android app that has been developed by ScarePunch apps. The app is compatible with all the devices running Android 2.3 or later version of the OS. It is available in the Entertainment section in the App Store and has been very popular since its release. Since it’s an app dedicated to pranks, there must be something crazy about it that drives the user to use it more and more without being used to it very soon and I must say that it’s very much there.


The whole procedure to set up a prank is very simple. Just select a scary face out of the available options and set the delay time i.e. the time after which the ghost will knock at the door of your phone screen. That’s enough to take the hell out of your friend. But what’s more interesting is the fact that you can even record your friend’s reaction the moment he gets scared. Isn’t this amazing! Just turn on the camera while setting up the prank and you’re good to record the video. What’s more? You can even share your videos on Facebook, YouTube or instantly.I’m already laughing and getting excited reminding of all the times I made a fool of my friends.


I love the overall setup and the flexibility that the developer has offered. No more do you need to take any cautions while scaring your friend so that no small mistake may overtake the joy from you. There is very little scope of mistake as your friend is watching a video and suddenly a horror face comes up against his big eyes. It’s totally unexpected and under cover till the moment it is executed. The graphics of the app are good and I really liked the different animations. There are a total of 10 of them and they are really good in their business. The yelling sounds just take your breath away.


I really liked the app. It is available for just “free” in the App Store. Also, you can get additional 8 scary 3D animations for just $0.99. So, all you need to do is just go to the store and download the app. I don’t think it will take long for you to get a ‘shocking’ reaction from your friends.

Pros: amazing animations; perfect setup for a prank; instant sharing on Facebook and YouTube; free.

Cons: none.
