Funny Road Trip: iPhone App Written Review
We’re going to paint a picture for your now, and if you’ve ever had children in your life, then it’s likely going to sound very familiar: Long road trip, nothing to do, whiny children, and endless, endless bickering. It’s an unfortunate crossroads between your children’s attention spans and the open road, and if you don’t have Funny Road Trip by developer Sugar and Ketchup on hand to deal with the situation, things can get a bit testy. Thankfully, you do have the app installed, and even if you don’t, you can still read through our full review below to figure out exactly why you should have it. So without further ado, let’s jump into things!
Concept and Functionality
In our eyes, Funny Road Trip is an absolutely brilliant application, and because of one reason and one reason only: It helps us to entertain our children while we’re on really long road trips, and in a way that’s both educational and fun for everyone. Here’s the basic premise:
Your child boots up on the app on your iPhone and selects one of the four included hitchhikers. These are characters that come from different parts of the world, and speak in a unique way. The character will introduce itself in its professionally acted voice, and will then proceed to give your child activities to do. This might be something like, “Count five black cars, then say hopscotch!” but each character comes with 50 of these to entertain your child with. In other words, the app gives your child a friend to enjoy the trip with, some items to keep them busy, and even a few words in a different language to educate them. If that doesn’t make the parenting bones in your body absolutely tingle, then we’re willing to bet you don’t even know where your kids are right now.
Design and Graphics
However, the absolute best thing about Funny Road Trip is its look. The app comes with a lot of hand made graphics that simply look superb. The characters are lively and, as mentioned, come with some very professional acting. This means you’ll get a lot of endearing content within the app, all of which is aimed at keeping your child’s attention off the road trip itself. We have no doubts that the app can do this easily and with efficiency, which means it’s an unbelievable package for the road weary parent.
Best of all, as the app costs only two bucks in the App Store, we can find no reason in the world not to give it a go. It’s a tremendous value for the money, and between you and us, we’d pay a whole lot more to keep the kids quiet. So if you’re looking for just such a utility, look no further and start downloading Funny Road Trip now!
Funny Road Trip requires iOS 3.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
