The Last One Standing
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
The Last One Standing is an app by Barrow Close Technologies that provides iOS users with an easy way to conduct a “last man standing” competition with friends. Although it is designed with the English Premier League teams in mind, the app can be used for just about any similar team/sports-based competition.
Like its name indicates, The Last One Standing is an app designed to help consumers organize competitions with their friends more easily. This app is completely customizable, and although the sample competition option utilizes the English Premier League, users can set up the app so that any sports teams (or other similar competitions) can be the focus of a competition.
Setting player fees can also be done, and the app features an easy way to keep track of which players have actually paid their fees to the general winnings pool or not. Overall, The Last One Standing is a great app for anyone who regularly argues/debates with friends/colleagues about which team is most likely to win major league competitions. With The Last One Standing, people have to actually put their money with their mouth is.
Appearance and Layout:
The Last One Standing is an extremely cleanly laid out app. Bare minimal graphics are used throughout the app, and this clean, white layout makes it simple to keep track of a good deal of information while running (or playing in) any competition. At the same time, the graphics that are used are classily done and not overpowering at all; for instance, even the icon for the app is cleanly designed.
The Last One Standing is impressively easy to navigate, and first-time users should have absolutely no difficulty with figuring out how to set up competitions, including adding players and creating personalized rules. Tabs on the screens direct players to each set-up section in the app.
The Last One Standing currently costs just shy of $2 in the iTunes Store. As a whole, this app seems worthy of its fee, primarily due to the originality of the concept behind it. However, The Last One Standing is still definitely an app that may only really appeal to a very limited group of consumers, and the majority of iOS users probably will not have any reason to install it on their devices. At the same time, anyone who needs an app like this will not regret choosing to invest in it.
The Last One Standing iPhone app requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
