    Do you want to grab a cup of coffee at work, but you don't want your boss to bother you because of it? This app might be a solution to your problem. Install Fake Update and start it whenever you want to leave your desk for a quick break. Your absence will not be suspicious and you will be able to enjoy your coffee break without stress. You can choose the duration of the updating simulation.

    This app is perfect for open space working environment, banks or any kind of public job. For example, if you are annoyed by a crazy customer, just show him the screen and say - you see, there is nothing I can do :)

    We all need a break from time to time. People are sometimes even more productive when they have a coffee break. Of course, don't use this app too often :)

    Updating screen will soon be adapted for Windows 10 as well.

    Haha, nice can you add a Infinite loop which only ends when a certain key combo (user customizable) is pressed?

    Would be the perfect April Fools Joke

    I was actually thinking of creating an "uninstalling windows and deleting all data" screen, I'll add it in the next version :)

    You can't just go around showing fake Windows Updates to little kids, Shawn.

    Here, I added a prank "uninstall Windows and delete all data" page. Also, mouse cursor is invisible and users can add a "magic word" to stop the simulation. I already freaked out my colleague at work :)

    It is a desktop app not a WP app, but having a WP app like it would be neat.

    The spinning gears and the "reset phone and erase data" to fool a friend. I was thinking about creating this screen:
    reset-windows-phone.png

    but no matter what you click, it will start fake reset phone screen :)

    Well, on Windows 10 (still on build 9926), I can move the cursor to the top and close it.
