App Store Description

"Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far."
-West African Proverb

Having trouble keeping order in your meetings? Not receiving the proper level of respect from those around you? Then buy this app! Badger your peers into submission with the constant banging of a judge's gavel or several other thumping items. There's even a mode for thumping with a leather shoe. And if thumping a virtual shoe at someone doesn't get one's attention, you can always try a real shoe, but this app doesn't include a real shoe. You'll need to supply that yourself.

What this app does include are thirteen virtual items with realistic movement and sound effects: a gavel (in two different styles), a wooden mallet, a carpenter's hammer, a sledgehammer, a dead fish and more! The attention each item demands will vary depending on the anger in your swing.

Random events will occur for different objects. Some random events are much less frequent than others. Experiment to see which ones you can discover!

Please don't panic if something unexpected happens when you are banging away. None of the "damage" is permanent.

A video demonstration is available on The Gavel website link below.

For added fun, start playing some music on your iPhone or iPod and then launch this app. You can then add improvisational percussion to your favorite tunes. "That song doesn't need more cowbell, it needs more gavel!!!"
