SLAP IT UP Platinum: Written iPhone App Review
Slap It Up Platinum is an application available for the iPhone and iPod touch. The point of Slap It Up is to create a connection with another person in which you “slap each other up” with your phones. It’s a really new concept, and one that could take off and there is some potential for it to be a hit.
The features of Slap It Up are decent. First, you can create your own individual slaps, and share them in a variety of ways. These ways include via iPhone, SMS Text, Email, Facebook, and Twitter. The app also has a variety of challenges which quiz you over sequences of slaps. So the app could also be viewed as a brain memory exercise game.
Slap It Up also has some other cool features such as the ability to network with other individuals. You can sort by newest, my friends, and highest rated. This gives you a bit of freedom when slapping it up. Slap It Up also has a number of different challenges which let you unlock trophies on the trophies page. These trophies are everything from Tarzan to Aim High. So the app has a lot of interesting features which boost the value of the app.
The design of Slap It Up is a lot better than the features. The designers did a great job making the UI easy to navigate. The app has a tab bar on the bottom of the screen for easy transition between pages. Slap It Up also has a blue color scheme the enlivens the app and makes it a little more fun to use. A good user interface is always important, and the app comes through with that. The only disappointment I have is that the app is not optimized for the iPhone 5. Hopefully the developers add iPhone 5 support because that is pretty much becoming the standard now with applications.
Overall the idea is really unique and hasn’t been done before. It has a lot of positive potential, and hopefully it does well in the app store. You will have to try it out for yourself to get a full impression. The features are impressive, and the design is well thought out. In total the app is decent or above-average.
SLAP IT UP Platinum is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
