What's New- Added compatibility with the No Ad Tracking functionality to improve privacy
- A bug while sending a report on iOS6 has been fixed
- The graphics has been optimized for the new iPhone 5
App DescriptionKeep mosquitoes away! This app plays an ultrasound (that can't be heard by the human ear) that simulates the sexual recall of the male mosquito, causing repulsion to the already fertilized female mosquitoes, the only which are able to bite.
• Social Reports
Take advantage of the power of the user community allied against mosquitoes! It's possible to report and share the presence of mosquitoes in your position, and also view on a map the users feedbacks and anticipate the moves of mosquitoes, avoiding them!
A special red light will light up when mosquitoes have been reported in your area.
• Audio Background
This is the first mosquitoes repellent application that takes advantage of audio background functionality. The ultrasound keeps playing even when you close the application. You can go on using your iPhone without losing mosquitoes repellent effectiveness.
• High Resolution Graphic
The graphic is optimized for the High Res Retina Display. It looks real and engaging, both to see and to keep as utility on your iPhone or iPad.
• Green and Non-toxic!
Keep mosquitoes away naturally, avoiding to breathe toxic gas and without environment pollution.
• Universal App
Runs on iPhone, iPod and also on iPad! Two apps in one.
You don't have to spend money thank's to the iAd support!
Turn up the volume to the highest level for a more effective sound. It can be done even inside the application itself!
Q.: Is the application working when I read ON or OFF on the button?
A.: The application is not working when you can read the red word "OFF" on the button and it's working when you can read the green word "ON" on the button.
Q.: Why i'm hearing an hiss? / Why I don't hear nothing?
A.: The app plays an high frequency sound. Some people under 30 years old can hear the sound, while over a certain age (variable from person to person) the ear lose the ability to hear high frequency sounds.
Q.: Mosquitoes don't have ears, how do they hear sounds??
A.: Insects don't have ears, but on feelers, that are the mosquitoes aural organs, there are about 15.000 sensorial receptors, structured so to create an "active ear" in which natural vibrations are generated so to amplify the incoming sounds. [Source: Le Scienze on-line]
Q.: Are you telling me that the iPhone loudspeaker can play ultrasounds?
A.: Actually the frequency used in NoMoreMosquitoes is slightly under the ultrasounds threshold frequency. But it's very close to the limit that can be heard by the human ear (20 kHz), so for the sake of simplicity we called it "ultrasound", because a lot of people can't hear it.
Q.: Does this app really works as mosquitoes repellent?
A.: Our application is based on the same principle used by several electronic devices sold throughout the world.
As above indicated the assumption on which the app is based is scientific even if there are conflicting opinions on the effectiveness, something that can be easily demonstrated by published articles about it and by the many various users comments.
We do not want to argue that the ultrasounds certainly work as a repellent, just there is not even certain proof of the opposite.
