This app is optimized for iPhone 5, and runs on iOS 5.0 or later.


Think of an on the go game app that allows you to brush up your music and lyrical skills and challenge your friends to see who is more knowledgeable in music. Or what about a game that will also showcase your song and artist trivia talent? That is what the Name That Jam! App is all about. You can select songs and artists and have your friends and family guess what it is and even see who knows more about music. Want to get nitty gritty? You can even poke fun at your opponents’ musical tastes, but beware, because what comes around goes around! The only downside is that in order to use the Name That Jam! app, users will need to have a Facebook account to login to prior to accessing the functions of the app so if you don’t have one, you are out of luck.

Appearance and Layout:

The neat thing about the Name That Jam! app is that it is iPad user friendly in the sense that from the beginning you are able to magnify the view twice the size to have optimal viewing on your iPad screen. You can do this by simply tapping on the “2x” icon on the bottom left hand corner of your screen. The overall black background and bold blue foreground color scheme plays well with the competition – you can be either the silent victor or the big talker winner. Navigation is a cinch, and layout is really simple to view and find your way around.


Since the Name That Jam! app is offered for free, you really can’t beat a deal like that. It is an entertaining game revolving around a universal theme that any user would recognize and enjoy – music. Users of ages and backgrounds will not only have fun playing this challenge, but they can expand their musical knowledge by learning about new songs and artists that they may have never know before.

Please note that the developer will soon be releasing a newer version where users can earn coins by playing and using them to obtain hints on various songs or artists. Users will have the option to purchase more coins via an in-app purchase.

 Name That Jam! app requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
