Happy Birthday Show!: Written iPhone App Review
Happy Birthday Show!, has been released, from developer GenialApps. It’s a unique custom birthday song app for birthday celebrators all around the world, with professional singers and multiple social media sharing options!
Simply load up Happy Birthday Show! and you will be taken to a main screen. Here, you can type in a “To” and a “From”, and special birthday message. However, annoyingly, you can always enter one name for use once, in the free version, and will have to pay to enter any other names with the Full Version. Then, you can hear the customized song, with your friends or family’s name that you entered in it.
As stated by the developer, the song is sung by professional singers. From here, you can setup a neat countdown for the song to play, or even a funny fake call, where you can give the device to your friend, telling them someone is calling, and listen to it. Also, you can share the song as a virtual postcard, via email, Facebook, or Twitter and sent it online. Happy Birthday Show! also allows you to remember Facebook friend’s birthdays for use in the app.
You can choose from linked friends and contacts to send quickly as well. The app song feature is neat, but the limitations are pretty strict for free users, making it hard to share with more than one friend.
Graphics are clear, crisp and sharp on the iOS. There isn’t too many browser pages to flip through, but those that are there are pretty solid. The pages load quickly and the audio for the songs is excellent. I used “Tom” for the birthday name and the singer hit the name easily, without a hitch! It’s very easy to figure out the general layout of Happy Birthday Show! and the sharing system is simply one-touch, no problems. Sharps graphics and a smooth layout score points for Happy Birthday Show! for sure!
Singing apps on the iOS aren’t entirely unheard of, but the cheerful melodies of Happy Birthday Show! are hard to resist. It’s well done, but lacking in some parts. The most problematic part is the severe limitations for free users, something that is very irksome. Fortunately, the app is free, so you can try it out from the start and consider if you want the full version with more names to send to. Happy Birthday Show! is a unique celebratory app for the iOS, combing fun songs, slick graphics, but with as few detractors for those looking for a totally free app.
Happy Birthday Show! is available on iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, running iOS 4.3 or later. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
