Motivatii: iPhone Apps Written Review
In our line of work (we do a lot of stuff with web hosting, computers, etc.) one of the hardest parts about our job is actually obtaining motivation. Somedays we really struggle to get up and out of bed. However, with a new app by developer Auzom Apps called Motivatii, inspiration is much easier to get an hold on. The app supplies us with a steady stream of inspiring quotes, videos, and messages, all of which help us to get up and go, achieving more using nothing but our iPhone and our will power. If that sounds like something you might be interested in, head on down below the break to view our whole thought on Motivatii!
Concept and Functionality
The idea behind Motivatii is blessedly simple: How cool would it be if you could receive a daily message whose only purpose is to inspire you to do more with your life? Better yet, how much cooler would it be if you could get that message directly on your iPhone? In essence, this is what Motivatii does. The app serves as a gateway to the developer’s mammoth collection of motivational quotes, signs, posters, messages and even videos. By flicking from side to side within the app, you can take a long hard look at all of them. You can even set up a daily reminder so that you wake up to an inspiring quote. It’s great stuff, but it doesn’t stop there. The app also lets you share what you discover to Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. Obviously, this unlocks a whole new world of social networking possibilities, as well as the opportunity to lighten up your friends’ days, as well as your own. All in all, it’s good stuff!
Design and Interface
Overall, we would have to say that we’re pleased with Motivatii’s design. It’s smooth, beautiful, and for the most part works like a champ. We liked having the ability to save our favorite quotes and messages, specifically. However, we would have liked the be able to submit our own photos. We think there’s a deeper layer here where users themselves can begin to submit items, allowing for even more interaction and social opportunity. We like the handpicked nature of the app, but we’d love to be even more involved!
Price and Overall Value
For once, we’re also going to say that we would have liked the app to be free. We feel like a few tastefully placed adverts would have been a great way to take the price tag off this app, unlocking its market base even more. Not to say that Motivatii isn’t worth the dollar it costs: We just feel like this is a perfect opportunity for a freemium style app to explode onto the scene. All in all, though, Motivatii is truly inspiring, and we have no doubts that it will continue to flourish in the coming weeks.
Motivatii requires iOS 4.3 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.
