Coming to blows with the iPhone

Blower is a new app that uses a standard iPhone–no hardware add-ons required–to blow enough air to extinguish birthday candles. Obvious accessibility use: extinguishing birthday candles, for people with respiratory disabilities. Not-so-obvious use: inclusion in other apps to provide discrete signals to blind individuals, for example when a reminder pops up. (Discrete, that is, if the leaf-blower audio can be eliminated.)
