Hoozin: Written iPhone App Review
Hoozin is a free group chat app available for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The goal of Hoozin is to connect you with your friends in a unique and sociable format. Hoozin offers sleek UI and a fun way to connect with friends. Hoozin even has a friends roulette where you can spin an arrow to pick someone to message. This app offers some cool features and has a great design. I’ll get more into both below.
Hoozin offers free texting, group chat, private messages, and profile pictures. While these features are available with your standard smartphone plan, Hoozin makes it free. As an added bonus, Hoozin also let’s you send picture messages with groups and friends. The app also has selected friends. Say you only want to be notified when that special someone sends you a message. The app let’s you select which friend’s messages gives you a notification. So when you get a message from that special someone, you will know about it.
As I mentioned above, Hoozin has group chat and profile pictures. The app is really geared towards the use of group chat with the roulette and contact connection. With this app, there’s no real need to search for friends as Hoozin will pull the names and numbers from your contact information. Boom! No time wasted entering contact information.
The application also has a interface and design that works well. The goal of the app is to offer group texting, and it is easy to tell that app is designed to do this well. Hoozin even let’s you choose a background for the group chat. After completing things like sharing Hoozin on Facebook, you can earn more backgrounds.
The overall level of design is glamorous but still simple enough to be very easy to use. Honestly, the invite game is also a ton of fun. You can spin the bottle to land on a random friend. After that, you send a message to that person. It’s actually quite fun to do. The game uses contact information and profile pictures when the bottle lands on a friend.
Overall Hoozin offers a powerful and free tool that should be utilized by anyone that wants free group or individual texting. With competitive features like picture messaging, mini-games, selective notifications, social networking support, private messages, etc., I think Hoozin is a good alternative to costly smartphone texting. The app’s interface is functional and get’s the job done while adding a little spice to messaging friends. The app even has iPhone 5 Support so it is probably worth checking out.
Hoozin is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
