Blower iPhone App Blow Out Candles
Yes, there’s an iOS app that can actually blow out candles, and it’s not just a gimmick. Called Blower, this piece of software makes use of your iPhone / iPad / iPod speaker hardware to modulate the air around the grille. Simply put, when the speaker cone inside of an iPhone moves out, it pushes a little bit of air out.

Now when the speaker cone moves the other direction, it sucks the air back in. There are three different modes: BLOW (blows out candles and lighter flames), BEAT (flames dance to the music) and GUN (flames shiver). Users could also touch the blower rotor in-app to drive it around and see sparks.
