SnapDance, developed by Neos Corporation, is a creative way to turn photos of yourself and your friends into something completely different and unique. If you’re a fan of breakdancing, this is definitely an app for you.
Concept and Functionality:
I love to see brand-new ideas for apps, as originality is something that tends to be disregarded nowadays. With so many apps in the App Store, it’s incredibly difficult to come up with a unique idea. SnapDance is just that, and it’s definitely something I’ve never come across. The idea of the app is simple – take photos and turn yourself into a virtual breakdancer.
How is this done? You’ll need four photos of yourself and/or your friends. This includes front and back photos of your head and body. You can do this for plenty of friends, as well, as SnapDance includes plenty of slots for custom dancers. As you’re taking photos, you can freely resize and adjust so that everything matches with the outline on the screen.
Once your photos are all set, SnapDance automatically creates a custom dancer. After you’ve selected your dance crew, tapping the “Let’s Dance” button starts the show. The whole process shouldn’t take too long from start to finish, but once you have everything set up, you’re treated to a really cool show. Remember to turn the volume up, too!
One of my favorite features SnapDance offers is the ability to easily switch between dancers on the coordinate screen. This is a fun way to quickly switch things up on the fly and get everyone in on the fun. A feature that would allow you to create and save custom groups would be a pretty cool addition to the app.
SnapDance, though it’s well-designed and pretty easy to use, is missing features that I think would make it an even better app. For example, different dance routines and songs would be an incredible addition to SnapDance. For an even more customized experience, perhaps users could build their own routines using a combination of dance moves.
Also, the ability to record routines would be amazing, as there’s really no way to do this given the limitations of the iPhone. Even 10 second clips would be a great way to show off your virtual dance moves to your friends.
SnapDance is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. There is also an Android version available.
Overall, if you’re looking for something creative and new to try, SnapDance is definitely worth checking out (especially if you’re a fan of breakdancing). It’s a terrific value and has tons of potential.
SnapDance requires iOS 7.0 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.
