When an iPhone Falls, Does it Make a Sound?

Usually the only sound an iPhone makes when it plummets to the ground is a crack upon impact. Now thanks to the jailbreak tweak FreeFall the iPhone can scream in horror whenever it's dropped. In fact, the default sound effect triggered by the accelerometer is none other than the Wilhelm Scream.

FreeFall is available free from developer Steven Rolfe's repository at apt.steverolfe.com. Check here for instructions on how to add a new source to Cydia on a jailbroken device. Besides the screaming iPhone trick, FreeFall can also be used to play a custom sound.
