    would it be possible to create some sort of app that allows you to use your phone as a scale (for weight)?

    There was an app that claimed to do that. I found it when I first got my Hero. It never worked though, so I uninstalled it.

    The Hero's homescreen "flip clock" already has the ability to function as a bathroom scale. Just place your phone on your bathroom floor (making sure that the flip clock screen is showing, of course), and stand on the phone. Voila, built-in bathroom scale! :)

    Try it, it works! :rolleyes:

    Mine just made a crunching noise. I have not been able to turn it back on to see if it was accurate in determing my weight. On a side note, I was able to easliy remove the dust from under the screen through the large holes in the broken shards of glass. Bonus! Thanks for this tip. This forum is the greatest.

    P.S. Is there an App to make the Hero take my temperature???

    The flip clock can also function as a digital rectal thermometer. Of course, no one except you can "make" the Hero do anything, including take your temperature. ;)
