Twist Your Tongue: Written iPhone App Review
Do you like tongue twisters, or play on words? Do vocabulary and the English language fascinate you? Then Twist Your Tongue from developer Sound Apps Berlin is just the perfect app for you! It is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), and iPad, and runs on iOS 5.0 or later.
When the user initially loads Twist Your Tongue, they are prompted with three different main features: “List”, “Random”, and “Create”. The “List” feature showcases numerous tongue twisters categorized alphabetically and with main subject titles. By selecting any of the titles, the user will then have the option to play the tongue twister at a slow pace or fast pace setting. The “Random” feature allows the user to view different tongue twisters (selected at random by default) along with readable text and listen to audio playback. On a continuous roll, a subject title will appear with the actual tongue twister displayed in text on the bottom of it on the screen. While the text appears on the screen, the audio reading of the tongue twister will begin. The “Create” feature allows the user to make their own tongue twister and share it with their friends. There is also a “Record” feature which allows the user to record a specific tongue twister and compare it with the default app reader.
Appearance and Layout:
The overall appearance of Twist Your Tongue is simple and no-distracting. With a green and grayscale color theme and plain text, the user should have no problem viewing the app and its wordings. App navigation and layout is easy to figure out and work around. The user can basically tap on any of the features and get a gist of what to do and the app’s main purpose. No directions or instructions are needed since the app’s basics functions are pretty self-explanatory.
For Twist Your Tongue costing 99 cents is a fair price. Since this is more of a linguistics related app, it doesn’t gear toward a wide, general audience and the age level is also narrowed down. It is a fun and entertaining app, and should have a good appeal at this price. For those who are interested in words, vocabulary, and the English language as a whole, this app might be considered worthwhile and a time passer for them.
