Basket Sniffer: Written iPhone App Review
Basket Sniffer is an application available for the iPhone and iPod Touch from Fingoware LLC. The point of Basket Sniffer is to play a hide-and-seek like game on your phone. The game works using bluetooth and is actually a lot of fun to play. The goal is for one person to hide their phone which is supposed to be the basket, and the other’s phone is supposed to be the bunny. Then the bunny is supposed to find the basket using a hot-cold game approach. The game has a lot of cool added features and is brilliantly designed for kids, so I would highly recommend checking it out!
The features of Basket Sniffer are basically what I outlined above. But there is also the added benefit of having multiple bunnies and search for the basket as a team. The app is really geared towards the Easter holiday and children in general. Basket Sniffer might just be the perfect way to brighten your kid’s day or create a fun game for a group of children.
The added bluetooth component is really cool too, and it’s incredibly powerful. It uses bluetooth 4.0 signal strength to measure the device’s distance to the basket. As you get closer the bunny starts to sniff and get excited. So the app has some really nice features that make it worth the download.
The design of Basket Sniffer is very good work. It’s themed for kids and has lot’s of cute and fuzzy images. It’s a great app for kids that has the potential to provide hours of fun. The backgrounds, images, and sounds all match the theme so this app is definitely kid appropriate. The interface is easy and clear to understand with only three buttons on the main screen. The first two buttons let you choose what you want to be, and the third button explains the rules if you get confused. The app is pretty self explanatory and simple so your kid shouldn’t get confused.
Overall the app has a lot of potential to be a hit. The use of bluetooth makes it incredibly powerful and the app has a very kid friendly design. As I said before, I would highly recommend it as it is a fun game that can be played for hours. Navigation throughout the app is clear and simple, just remember to turn on bluetooth and keep the volume on high while playing! In total, excellent app for kids. Fingoware has also made a demo video available on their site here.
