How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

Product Description
Paper Toss
Paper Toss
Easy to pick up and play.

Take your best shot! Flick a ball of paper into your trashcan target in this addictively-fun casual game. Paper Toss brings you the satisfaction of tossing a crumpled-up ball of paper into the trash, now possible on your Android device. Hone your paper-tossing skills across six different levels: office cubicles, bathrooms, and even an airport.

Intuitive flick controls help you guide each shot through varying windspeeds and distances to reach the target. Rack up points, then post your highscores online through the Papaya online leaderboards service.


In Paper Toss, the object of the game is to flick a crumpled-up ball of paper into a trashcan target. The game features six levels which all have different distances to the target--the further away the trashcan is, the harder it will be to hit.

Additionally, a fan is present in each level, blowing wind at varying speeds and changing locations with each toss. Learn to adjust your aim to compensate for windspeed, and guide each shot into the trashcan. Realistic and oddly satisfying, much like tossing a real ball of crumped paper into a trash can, Paper Toss will provide you with hours of casual fun.

Intuitive Controls

In Paper Toss, players use touchscreen controls to flick crumpled-up balls of paper into a trashcan for points. The controls are intuitive, and function as you would expect: place your finger behind the ball of paper on the touchpad, then change the angle you're pointing at to aim left or right. Once you have your shot lined up, flick your finger across the touchpad to send the ball of paper flying.

Different Environments

Play through six different realistic environments, each with matching sound effects and background noise: Easy, Medium, and Hard office levels, Airport, Basement, and Restroom. Each level has varied windspeeds and distances to the target, further adding to the challenge. You can even post your scores online to see how you stack up against the rest of the community.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't say enough good about this game! December 25, 2012

Who hasn't crumbled up paper and toss it in a nearby bin? Who hasn't imagined themselves making the winning shot?

This is one of the most unique games around.

Paper Toss is, I prefer, better played with a stylus.

This game is great for strengthening eye-hand coordination.

I love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Waste of Time December 1, 2011
Verified Purchase
What at first I thought was a silly way to waste time, turned into a great way to waste time. This simple app takes a small amount of skill, but once you master it, you find you try to tempt fate and see how many rim shots you can make.

The premise is simple, shoot a wad of paper at a trash can with the aid of a fan. You have to gage basic aerodynamics, but after that, you can challenge yourself to how many consistent baskets you can make.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a waste of time! Mission accomplished! April 4, 2011
Nice game to kill time with and there are many screens/basket distances to choose from. Be sure to shoot some way off to the right or left to hear what some bystanders yell at you. One thing to note is that the strength of your stroke does not matter, you are only determining the angle when you shoot. Entertaining enough for a download!

I love to play this game to pass time waiting on the phone, or in a doctor's office. I have great fun hitting the trash can, and time seems to fly by when I am playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Challenging & Fun! December 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
As far as apps go, this game is probably already considered a relic. It's been around a long time, but I still enjoy playing it from time to time, because it's easy to jump in and play a few rounds, without having to worry what level you're on. Basically, you're in an office setting, and there's a piece of crumpled up paper at the bottom of the screen, and a trash can closer to the top of the screen. It's either after hours, or everyone else is at lunch. And rather than working, your job is to fling that crumpled up piece of paper across the office and into the trash can. It gets interesting when the room fan starts bending the trajectory of the paper, when you try to fling it into the garbage can. This is one that you can pick up and play while waiting for your doctors appointment and not disturb anyone nearby. The sounds are very minimal, and it's a fun time waster, that I play from time to time. My best so far is only 20 in a row. It works well on both tablets and phones, and isn't a battery hog. Not as elaborate as others; but still good fun. And there's something to be said for simplicity.
