- Make sure you have the caller on speaker when you use Fake-An-Excuse from an iPhone -- otherwise the caller will not be able to hear the sounds clearly.

- Use the 'Configure Sound List' button to configure the excuse list. Items that have a checkmark in the configure sound screen will be displayed on the main picker wheel. Tap an item to check/uncheck it.

- If you have the Repeat switch on, the currently selected excuse will start when all sounds are finished. This means you can start playing the Elevator excuse sound with Repeat set to On, and then switch to the Loosing Signal excuse sound and it will play when the Elevator sound is completed, helping you pull of an even smoother escape.

- Commit fully to your excuse! If they say, "What?", or ask other questions, just hang up and attend to the 'pressing issue' at hand...

- Don't let your significant other see this application installed on your iPhone!
