This game will test how well you really know your friends and family and you can earn free prizes perfect for this post-Ramadan celebration. Best of all, the Carrefour WHOlah iPhone app is completely free. Find out how you can get in on the game in our iPhone app review of Carrefour WHOlah.
At its heart the Carrefour WHOlah iPhone app is a matching and memory game. The app integrates with Facebook, then challenges you to identify which friend’s default Facebook picture is displayed. You earn points as you correctly identify friends within the time allotted.
Considering the popularity of Facebook and the propensity for folks to post the strangest photos as their default, the game is actually quite challenging.
Each picture you see appears with three possible correct guesses of names from your friends list. Tap on the correct name on the first try to earn the most points. You can still continue guessing, but the point amount goes down.
And what is all this matching fun for? To earn points and free stuff of course. As the app says, “crispy towers of happiness await you.” Read more about the app’s award system after the break.
Malaysia’s Carrefour stores are participating in a prize award system for folks who play the Carrefour WHOlah iPhone app from August 19 to September 19, 2011.
Vendors will not be handing out little green packets of money, but these prizes are still pretty awesome. Prizes include free Coke products, crisps and more.
As you reach high scores the app will tell you exactly what prize you have unlocked. Then simply take your iPhone to a participating Carrefour market to redeem your prize with any purchase.
It’s always nice to be awarded for your game play skills. There are the usual terms and conditions. These are included in the app. But it’s much more fun to just be excited that playing a free app can earn you goodies.
Layout & Design:
Simple, clear graphics make navigating and playing the Carrefour WHOlah iPhone app simple. There are no fussy cartoonish graphics or overly complicated interfaces. Simply tap to identify the person, and let the app do the rest.
Free is the name of the game with the Carrefour WHOlah iPhone app. The app is free and the prizes are free. Some prizes do require a purchase to redeem, or even a purchase with a Visa. So while the concept is great, red tape really brings the Carrefour WHOlah iPhone app down in my opinion.
Once the festive period of Hari Raya 2011 is past the Carrefour WHOlah iPhone app and its matching game will still function, but the awards come to an end. Even without the prizes this app is still interesting and unique for users worldwide. Get it.
Carrefour WHOlah iPhone app requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
