OnlyFinals: iPhone Apps Written Review
We’ve been seeing about two thousand and two different Olympic applications hitting the App Store since the games started up a few days ago. However, most of them are overloaded with excess information and features that you don’t necessarily need. So what do you do when you want just a very simple app to remind you of the biggest events? For that, you need OnlyFinals by developer Fenna Westerdiep. The app makes it unbelievably simple to set up reminders for the events that you don’t want to miss, allowing you to catch every gold medal every time. For our full review in a flash, go ahead and just scroll on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
As stated, the idea behind OnlyFinals is rather blissfully simple. The app makes it incredibly fast and efficient to create real reminders for those big events that you absolutely cannot miss. Here’s what we mean:
Within the app, you’ll need to first select one of the many sports supported by OnlyFinals. These have all been arranged in a tidy icon wall, making the process rather simple. Select the one you’re interested in, and you’ll be then taken to a second icon wall with a series of events. Find the one you’re looking for, and then you’re all set to go! The app gives you an immediate look at when the final event will be, but it also logs that event away for a reminder the day of the event. In this way, you can get a feel for when you’ll need to be near a television, but at the same time, the app will do all the hard work for you. And if you’re a real sports fanatic, that’s quite the handy feature, we have to say!
Design and Interface
Granted that OnlyFinals is pretty simple but that hardly detracts from the fact that the app is so bloody easy to use! All of the features are available with only a few clicks or a few simple taps, which means you’ll never have to think too hard to get it to “just work.” Furthermore, the easy spinning wheel allows you to setup reminders for exactly when you want them without any hassle at all. All in all, OnlyFinals is a simple creation, but we can hardly think of a better way to arrange the stuff it offers. It’s a solid piece of work, lads!
Do you really want to miss the last footy match of the Olympics? Would you forgive yourself for not seeing Usain Bolt run again? If not, then go ahead and spend the dollar to buy OnlyFinals. It’s easily worth the money, and it will save you one heck of a lot of Olympic heartache later. With that in mind, OnlyFinals earns a solid rating from us, as well as our recommendation.
OnlyFinals requires iOS 5.0 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.
