iFile: Written iPhone App Review
Competition Box is an iOS app developed by a group under the same name as the app. Featuring brightly colored boxes that can be opened for potential prize gain, this fun app can provide hours of entertainment. While some of the boxes have prizes that can be redeemed for free credits, others may contain £5,000 or more.
In Competition Box users are presented with hundreds of brightly colored boxes that can be “opened” to reveal multiple-choice style trivia questions. If a player answers the question correctly within 30 seconds, then he/she wins whatever prize that particular box contained. Such prizes range from absolutely nothing to free credits to £5,000; judging by this prize range, playing Competition Box can certainly be viewed as a potential gamble for many players. The questions in this fun app are just as diverse as the prizes, testing players on their knowledge of everything from the happenings in popular books to the colors of nations’ flags.
Competition Box can be played through creating an account that is connected to either a user’s Facebook or email account. The only frustrating issue that I personally had with Competition Box was with creating an account initially; the first several attempts I made to “login with Facebook” failed each time, with an error report stating that an internal issue with Competition Box was causing the problem.
Competition Box features fun, bright colors in a simple, easy-to-navigate layout. Playing this game really requires no former knowledge of the app, although understanding how to purchase and redeem credits may be considered to be a bit more complicated for some users. The general app itself seemed to operate fairly smoothly for the most part; however, I felt that the lag time in between opening a box, answering the question, and discovering the prize was a bit longer than ideal.
Competition Box can be played for free, but users of the free version cannot ever cash in on their prize gains. Players of the non-free version of this app, however, can actually redeem their prizes (should they win any). This way, Competition Box can be enjoyed by players who simply love trivia games as well as by those who enjoy the risk associated with gambling games. However, for either purpose, Competition Box should prove to be an enjoyable game to play.
Competition Box app requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review. The iPhone app reviews rating: [Rating: 5/5]
