iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Alien Texting, an app by Alien Translator LLC, boasts of being the perfect solution for anyone who wants to keep his/her texts completely private. Specifically, the app converts messages from English to a secret alien code; this alien code can then only be translated by the intended recipient, thereby keeping the message safe from the unwanted eyes of prying third-parties.
Alien Texting is an app that allows users to send encoded messages to their friends, with the idea that doing so should keep these messages safely reserved for the eyes of the intended recipients only. Setting up an account on Alien Texting is fairly simple to do and can be done in a matter of mere seconds.
Once an account is created, users can then choose an alien avatar to represent their in-app “character.” Choosing a photo from your own camera roll is also an option.
Messaging fellow alien users is also pretty simple to do, and the “alien language” is truly gibberish to the untrained eye. Of course, users of this app don’t have to have the language memorized by any means themselves; the purpose of Alien Texting is to allow the app to translate the messages for you, whether you’re the recipient or the sender.
However, unlike traditional texting systems, Alien Texting users are also given “ranks” according to their participation in the app’s features. For example, getting friends to join and use Alien Texting is an easy way to increase your in-app ranking.
Appearance and Layout:
The graphics of Alien Texting definitely add to its overall appeal. The inclusion of personal avatars is a great touch, and the choice to keep the color scheme/format of the messaging system the same as that of traditional iMessages makes it easy to follow.
In fact, as a whole, the layout and navigation through the entire Alien Texting app is well done and completely logical.
Alien Texting currently costs $0.99 through the iTunes Store. For iOS users who are looking for a creative way to send “secret” messages to their friends, this app could easily be seen as a decent option; the graphics for Alien Texting are great, and the little details thoughtfully applied to the app definitely make it more fun than traditional messaging systems.
While this may not fit the bill for someone who simply wants a purely practical encrypted messaging app, if you’re looking for a more fun and creative way to do it Alien Texting is really the way to go. Overall, it simply depends on a user’s personal preferences.
Alien Texting iPhone app requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
