Clever Lotto: Written iPhone App Review
Here at the iPhone App Review, we are always talking about the potential of the iPhone and its applications to change the way you do business and go about your life. Today, we have a rather brilliant example of this thanks to Clever Lotto by developer Formigas. The app offers users a convenient, safe and effective way to track their Power Ball and Mega Millions results from their iPhone, and in such a way that greatly improves the experience of betting on the lottery. For our full review, you don’t need to gamble, though: Just slide on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
The idea behind Clever Lotto looks something like this. First of all, the app does act as an information booth for both the Power Ball and the Mega Millions jackpots within the United States. It will give you day-by-day results and combination statistics for just about any variation you can think of. In fact, this alone would make it a useful resource. If you’re curious to know what combinations are winning and exactly how much, it could not be simpler thanks to Clever Lotto.
However, we have a feeling most people will find more use with the Clever Lotto results and statistics panels. This portion of the app allows you to add tickets that you’ve purchased, and then away it goes! It will automatically tell you the results of your bets, including how much you’ve earned, how much you’ve lost and which combinations scored. For those who are familiar with just how hectic it is to keep up with your lottery tickets, especially if you buy loads of them, this will immediately seem like a useful way to go. And it is. So much so that the app will even suggest your next ticket to you using a random number generator.
Graphics and Design
Overall, we haven’t got much to complain about within the design of the Clever Lotto interface. It’s a good looking experience with heavy tabbed navigation and simple controls. We loved the statistics interface which uses multiple colors to ensure you can easily and effectively sort out your wins and losses. All in all, it’s not the most gorgeous application we have ever seen, but you’ll hardly notice the interface for the results—as it should be!
Clever Lotto also costs a dollar in the App Store, which may strike some users as a tad high priced for an app about gambling. That being said, you’ll not find any adverts here, and with such an high-quality interface and such an effective method of sorting out your lottery tickets, Clever Lotto is easily worth its price of entry. The app is a deliciously simplistic way to keep on top of your gambling, and to ensure you get your just desserts. And for that, we will happily give Clever Lotto our gold-stamped recommendation.
Clever Lotto 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.
