Freakdroid: Written iPhone App Review
Do you have a thing for robots? Do you consider yourself a movie buff and like to be challenged with film trivia? Freakdroid from developer Digital4You can take you up on that! It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and runs on iOS 4.3 or later.
The basic premise of Freakdroid centers around a goody robot who likes to keep users entertained with its sarcastic wit and daily movie trivia. Everything is integrated through Facebook and/or Twitter, so users need to be ready to login with their existing accounts or create one in order to make full use of this app. This means this app functions only when logged into the user’s social network account, and will not be useful if not. Users’ trivia scores can also be displayed on virtual leader boards.
Users will be prompted with function tutorials when they see and hand image pointing in the direction that they should tap on the screen of their device. An explanation will pop up that will provide further details on how to access specific functions. For example, by tapping the video projector, the user will be prompted to take part in a cinema quiz which has new and challenging questions added on a daily basis. If the user taps on the telephone image, they can send the robot individual messages. Tapping on the social network icons will assist in displaying the robots messages as well. Users also have access to view a digital comic featuring the robot himself.
Appearance and Layout:
The overall appearance of Freakdroid is clean and simplistic. Function navigation is easy as well, and the user can tap around on certain objects and either the object, once tapped, will serve a specific function, or it will just have an animation. For example, of tapping on the “Twitter” bird will direct you to Twitter, and tapping on the paint can floor will just cause it to spill paint on the floor, in which the robot will eventually clean up.
The overall sound effects are also great and give off a realistic impression of what it would sound like in the robot’s exact setting. Machines buzzing and the robot moving about the room are just some of the neat sounding effects.
For Freakdroid being offered for free is not a bad deal. It’s interesting, entertaining, and if the user is a fan of trivia, especially movie trivia, than this app is perfect for them! It is suitable for all audiences and can provide endless fun on a daily basis.
