SpoofApp giving away 25 PINS with free minutes

198 Comments

SpoofApp is one of the more controversial apps going around today. The app lets users disguise their caller ID, change their voice and record their calls which can be played back, downloaded or shared with friends via social networks or email.

After 192 days, Apple rejected SpoofApp, citing:

“We’ve reviewed SpoofApp and determined that we cannot post this version of your iPhone application to the App Store at this time because it allows users to anonymously make calls and/or wrongly identifies the caller ID of the phone (known as Caller ID spoofing). We have chosen to not publish this type of application to the App Store.” – iPhone Developer Program

Well BlackBerry users don’t have to worry about Steve Jobs raining on their parade. SpoofApp is giving away 25 free PINS loaded with minutes to try out their service.

To win, all you have to do is comment. In light of SpoofApp not being available in the App Store, and being allowed to flourish in App World, tell us what advantages BlackBerry has over the iPhone.

UPDATE: Thanks for participating! The winners will be emailed with a pin.

Thank you everyone for your entries into the Slacker Radio Plus contest!  We here at BlackBerry Cool do have a sense of humor and Brian pulled the right string to make us laugh.  Yes it is dark and no you shouldn’t do this at home.

Here was the winning comment:

Some people are like slinkies…they are not really good for anything, but they sure bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs. I prefer some Slacker music while I watch it.

Congratulations Brian!
