We have gotten word that the popular application maker, BigTinCan, plans to release an application for the BlackBerry Storm.  The app is called FaceOff, and is essentially a quick and easy way to switch back and forth between two sound profiles by using the Storm’s accelerometer.  When you place your device on a surface with the phone face up, the sound profile will be set to loud/normal (user defined).  If you place the device on a surface with the phone face down, the sound profile will be set to vibrate/silent (user defined).  The app itself is very intuitive and easy to use and could be a great tool for those of us who spend time in meetings or classroom settings on a regular basis.  The expected release date for FaceOff is mid-April, and it will be available in the BlackBerry AppWorld and Mobihand for $4.99.
