Dokobots or just Robots?

Dokobots, is a new iPhone app which starts off in a rather fascinating manner. The user is first introduced to the history of dokobots that are aliens in need of help from humans. They are inactive and need batteries to get charged. The app helps you make your dokobot active and green in color. You can give your dokobot a name and a function, choosing from options like “hopeless romantic.” The app gives you a virtual map of your actual location and shows you objects like robots and batteries that you can pick. The player is provided with the option to search for batteries and other dokobots in the area and then pull them closer through a magnet. The app appears to be rather interesting and gives you the chance to build a life for your dokobot, so much so it even give it the opportunity to take a vacation.

However, as independent as the dokobots appear to be, any player will realize in half an hour or less that there are too many boundaries for this seemingly independent dokobot as well. While you remain in the same location, you will remain pretty far from all batteries and other abandoned dokobots unless you physically move in the direction of the batteries. Trying to bring them closer through the magnets takes too much time and the wait feels rather tiresome after a while. Another disadvantage is that I may have more dokobots in my room but they will not be visible to each other. This app could have a lot more potential if the dokobots are given more features and given the ability to interact with each other. Giving dokobots names and jobs in words is not enough to personify them, hence more is required from this app to keep the interest.

A survey of Family Feud and Friends

 

 

Todays’ app review is centered on a Facebook app which has now found its way to iOS. “Family feud and friends” is a game appearing like a game show with 3 rounds of survey questions. The top answers are hidden and revealed as you begin to guess the correct ones. The answers are based on what a 100 average people have answered. At the beginning it allows you to spin the jackpot and win up to 9 coins so you can start playing. You get free coins on a daily basis and you can earn more coins by inviting friends to play with you. You also get the option to buy more coins with real money. While playing you can choose to connect through your Facebook account and play with you friends from there. You also have the option to play as a stranger with strangers.

The game requires only 2 coins to get started. This app has a fun TV show sense to it making you feel like you are playing for real money. You play against another player in the first three rounds. Points are doubled in Round 2 and tripled in Round 3. If you make it to the 3rd round you play “fast money,” and earn up 200 points. In this round you don’t have a competitor. The task is to answer five questions and give the most accurate answers as soon as possible. If you collect the most number of points in the given time you reach the next level.

While the app appears to be rather fascinating one might compare it to word games and muse if this might be adding to our knowledge. However, it actually doesn’t. There isn’t much the player learns from the app except what were the top 100 answers that majority of the people answered in surveys. The good thing is, you are gaining general knowledge end of the day and since it’s free it is always worth a try. Also, while typing the keywords the app lists down the closest possible answers you might be searching for. Hence, those poor at typing skills like me cannot give this as an excuse to justify a bad score.
