New iPhone App Makes Everyone Jump At The Same Time

New iPhone App Makes Everyone Jump At The Same Time

Download the Moon Jump iPhone app and join the rest of the world in jumping together enough times to reach the moon.

Anna Brillon

Commissioned by Japan’s Kodansha Limited, one of the largest publishers of Manga comics, the new Moon Jump iPhone app┬áinvites all users to jump simultaneously. When an iPhone user downloads the app from iTunes, the app sends a text message telling the user to jump. At that exact moment, everybody else who has the Moon Jump app will also be told to jump. In a short span of time, the app will collect and calculate the total distances of all the jumps made. The goal here is to make everyone jump so high that all the added distances will reach from the earth to the moon. When that happens, app users will receive a prize. This app was part of Kodansha’s promotion for its new series of comics entitled ‘Space Brothers,’ which is about two boys with a childhood dream of becoming astronauts.
