Good vs Bad: Written iPhone App Review
Tired of the same old review and rating apps on the iTunes market? Then take a look at Good vs Bad, the “experience” app that helps you and your friends share the best activities and location for fun wherever you live. Produced by Liilak Oy, Good vs Bad is available for free on iTunes.
From the start, you will need to login with an active Facebook account, then set your location (automatic or via Location Services). From there, it’s a wide world of easy establishment and activity reviews with Good vs Bad. This is because at its core, Good vs Bad is a review app. Simply locate the place or activity you want to review and give it a Good or Bad rating (using a search function or the handy integrated Google Maps browser). Then, if you want to, you can add a brief note on your experience. It’s that simple and that is what I love about Good vs Bad. The rest of the app is designed around helping you locate and share your places that you review. Good vs Bad uses the Foursquare application and Facebook to allow you to easily let your friends know where the best entertainment and dining is to be found. There’s even a scheduling function where you can share with your friends your plans and help facilitate meetups at local hot spots, plus a Bucketlist option for things to do in the future.
Appearance and Layout:
I really can’t complain about the layout in Good vs Bad. It’s polished, with slick buttons and graphics throughout. I like how the app pulled up images of various establishments, even those not reviewed. There is a nice little tutorial that guides you through the basic functions at fire login. Furthermore, the multitude of options available to the user (from Bucket List to Good/Bad ratings) really helped make the app feel quite customizable. I also like the simplicity of the review system and how easy it was to visually locate the Good/Bad score for each establishment. You’ll need to spend a few moments playing around with Good vs Bad to get the hang of it, but it’s pretty intuitive, even for first time users.
Review and rating apps and websites are all the rage these days. While names like Yelp often dominate the market, astute users recognize the value of other programs and apps. The Good vs Bad app is one such example of a well-designed, social network-powered review application for the iOS. It’s certainly one that is hard to dislike with its array of features and superb layout. The Facebook login is required and may annoy some users, but overall isn’t really too much of an issue. I enjoyed being able to quickly provide feedback for various establishments in my area, all with the simple click of a button. Then, the app did the rest of the work-sharing it with my Facebook friends. Good vs Bad has made the review process painless and fun, all with just a few taps on the iOS.
Good vs Bad iPhone app requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review. The iPhone app reviews rating:
