iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Ok, so you’ve tried OKCupid, Tinder, Match.com, JDate and um, real life. No luck? Well, it might be time to try Charade Date, from DNA Mobile, LLC, a new turn-based dating app that’s poised to revolutionize the world of dating, not just through iOS, but through digital communication in general. If you haven’t heard of this app, this is your heads up. Virtual dating just got a whole let less lazy and a whole lot more crazy.
The features of this app are relatively straightforward, yet groundbreaking at the same time. The app as a whole is somewhere between Chatroulette (yes, you remember that eight minute fad) and a typical dating site. Like typical dating websites, the user sets up a profile that reflects their unique personality and begins to browse other users based on location and criteria.
The user then is able to request games from players and receive requests according to their preferences.
Here’s where the fun kicks in; the users once commenced have a selection of over 500 charade motifs to act out in an eight second video. That’s right, you’re actually interacting with the other person, moving you immediately way above and beyond the whole, “Hey, What’s up” stage.
For someone looking to clue into the others personality or looking for more pizazz than your typical dating app, well, Charade Date has the recipe.
Concept and Functionality:
While this app is still growing into its full potential through a growing user base, the overall concept is stellar. The functionality can only improve through time, updates and an expanded pool of users, so we’re quite optimistic about this one.
The app really gains points though, for its creativity. We’ve seen too many apps kick around old ideas in hopes of a breakthrough. While some games catch fire, and Instagram hits a billion-dollar valuation, about thirty million other apps fall by the wayside. But we’re highly optimistic about this app.
With the right demographics using it, this could really catch on. And for the Facetime generation that demands more, well, Facetime, Charade Date could really catch on fast.
We’re not saying that this app is perfect, but it’s damn near close. It would definitely be a perfect app if you could find Mr./Miss. Right the first time you log-in, but hell, then they could charge $10,000 per-download.
Really, we give this app a top rating because it goes above and beyond. It takes what could be a pedantic idea, and morphs it into something fun, youthful, unique and even sexy.
Overall, Charade Date has created something useful and new with this app. And in the niche market of lust and love, they’re bound to get a full queue of vibrant users in no time. So what are you waiting for? Your dream spouse could be just an eight-second-charade video away. Actually though.
Charade Date requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
