iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Looking for a bit of goofy and harmless fun for your kids that they can joke with you and your family members about? Then the Family Talk app from developer Apptizer is just the app you are looking for! It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
With the Family Talk app , you will first start off taking a picture of your desired subject’s face. Once you get the picture you to think you can work with (you also have the ability to retake the photo per your liking), then you will be prompted to place specific markers across the picture’s mouth area to ensure proper mouth movement.
From there you can select the character body frame that you want to place the face picture on to. You can choose from character body frames such as a dad, a mom, or a kid, and even revert back to a different body type if you want to.
For the next step, you will need to allow the app to access your device’s built in microphone, which you can adjust in the general settings icon of your device. This will have the character you just created repeat and move its mouth per every word you speak.
Please note if you want to access additional actions functions such as eating, dancing, or passing games, you will have to make additional in app purchases, so the app’s features are limited. Also, instructions can be disabled from being shown every single time by tapping on the “Do Not Show” icon box.
Appearance and Layout:
The overall appearance of the Family Talk app is very simple, but would be sufficient for younger users to stay interested. Images and graphics are more on the flat side, with bold bright background and character colors to keep things going.
The app’s functions are easy to use, with the help of some basic instructions, while the overall layout is easy to navigate around and even go back through.
Although the Family Talk app is initially offered for free, the features you get to work with are very limited. The only one offered for free up front is the talking function, but any other action features requires an additional in app purchase of 99 cents.
Now, to some that might seem like little money, but it does quickly add up since the charge is per each individual action wanted.
(Correction: The $0.99 payment unlocks the entire app, not just one action)
It is a fun and silly app that is worth trying out for some minor kicks and giggles and maybe more than that for young kids.
Family Talk app is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
