Tampa, FL - Deep in the oceans depth the shark hunts, swimming, searching, seeking. A person slides their finger into the water and… It Attacks. The water vibrates, blood explodes, and then it's over. Welcome the the world of Finger Shark.

A software development company is currently topping charts with their Finger Shark application for the iPhone. Written by Ercan Hocalar, a twenty year old from Tampa, FL, this app was the #1 free app and maintained the #1 in the entertainment section of iTunes for several days.
