Sonic Lighter for politics

Smule has released a special edition of its lighter app for the iPhone and iPod touch, Sonic Lighter 1.2, that can be registered as Sonic Red or Sonic Blue to show user support for either side of the presidential campaign. Users can view which flame is stronger in different parts of the world, with the ability to pinpoint the flames to a city or road. The app interacts with other "combustible applications" on the iPhone including Sonic Boom.

The app features several functions that emulate a real lighter, including the ability to blow the flame out with the user's breath, or tilt the flame sideways to virtually burn the side of the device. The flame can be pinched to change its size, or adjusted to a blow torch flame that can "ignite" other phones. The location data can be accessed by tapping on the globe. Sonic Lighter 1.2 is available from iTunes for $1.
