I don't think it's a joke.

While I don't believe in this - there are many that unfortunately use their phone on Shabbos and while they probably wouldn't use this - this could potentially help them cut down on some of their Chillul Shabbos.

The slope is so slippery that I'm sure many would get severely injured on the way down.

Again - I'm not saying that I think this is a good idea - I am simply saying that I don't think that the creator is joking.

The fact that the link to the play store and the apple store don't work doesn't show anything since the app isn't 'scheduled' to be out until Feb. The only 'fishy' things are the lack of a kickstarter site and misspelling a word on the site (Please visit our Kickstarter campagin and get the Shabbos App early and for less.)



Noticed a few other misspellings when I was reading.

What he didn't address is the fact that a circuit isn't only made or broken when you plug it in or out, millions of circuits are made and broken every time you do anything on your phone...

Well the most fishy thing for me now is:

Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain shabbosapp.com by aspmx.l.google.com. [2a00:1450:4010:c04::1a].

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
