Love checking your phone but nobody's emailing you because they're busy checking their own phone? Enter Phone Checker Pro. This addictive game replicates the experience of checking your phone with notifications based on your actual contact list! The best part?

You've just put on one shoe and now need to put on the other…well, you get it (check that phone).
