Covery – for facebook timeline covers
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
It’s amazing that Facebook has become such an integral part of our lives. That is to say, amazing and horrifying. We saw Zuckerberg become the world’s youngest billionaire, and since we’ve seen Facebook become a household name along with things like “television” and “water”. Now, everybody has a Facebook account. I’ve even seen cats with Facebook accounts. Yes, cats. I’m friends with several. Shout out to Henno.
Anyway, Facebook has practically become its own industry. Facebook apps, events, add-ons, apparel and even nail-polish have emerged as more and more products and brands are released to support the ubiquitous power that is Facebook. This is where Covery, from FiveToApp, comes in.
Here’s an app that saw Facebook’s ego-feeding brand and hopped aboard. To their credit, they’ve created a seamless app that will become a welcome addition to any Facebook fanatic’s repertoire.
This app is really designed for the accessory lovers and will definitely be a hit with that certain profile-priming crowd. The app allows you to scroll through backgrounds, fonts, textures and tons of themes to find the option that’s right for you.
The app itself is free, but comes with in-app purchases that can be used to purchase certain collections in bulk. Some of the more popular types include; ‘Frames’, ‘Flowers’, ‘Interactive’, ‘Patterns’, and ‘Textures’.
It’s the sheer variety that makes this app a pragmatic choice for those who use Facebook heavily. While there aren’t a whole lot of features to boast here, there is a great deal of aesthetic variety.
Concept and Functionality:
The functionality of this app is almost flawless. It’s smooth, glossy, brightly colored and fast. Using the app itself is a breeze and is definitely an enjoyable experience.
The concept isn’t earth shattering, but it doesn’t have to be. There is simplicity in this app that truly exploits a niche Facebook market. We can see the teenage demographic flocking to this app in no time.
This is a solid app and you can read more about it on its website or watch its YouTube tutorial. It won’t change your life, but we hope that the ‘Facebook Accessories’ void in your life wasn’t that large in the first place. The app is simple, provides variety, and will be a big hit with diehard Facebook fans. Some of the in app purchase prices seem a bit steep, especially considering this apps biggest rival is ‘Google Images’, but that won’t deter those looking for a healthy amount of glimmer and shine for their profile. Now let’s just hope that Facebook doesn’t change its template and overhaul the ‘Cover Photo’ option in the first place.
Covery requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPad. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
