Songpop (iPhone App)
Advantages: fun, addictive, nice to play with family/friends
Since owning my Iphone for quite a while now, I've finally worked out how to download apps with the help of my granddaughter (much to her amusement). I found songpop when I was looking for music quizzes as I've always enjoyed listening to music so thought it would be fun to test my knowledge. I downloaded the app from the app store for free about three months ago and hadn't heard of it before then.
Simply put, the aim of the game is to guess songs. You can challenge other people by finding their username, finding friends on facebook or choosing random and playing another player who you dont' know. You can also recieve these challenges too.
There are various music genres to choose from inclusing Modern rap, Todays hits, classic rock and love songs. You only get a few to start with but can unlock more afterwards. You choose a genre then have to answer five questions as quick as you can. The questions vary, sometimes they're looking for song title and other times its the singer.
Once you send the challenge they play then send one back and the game keeps the score. If you win you recieve three coins, if you lose you recieve one. You can collect the coins and spend them on more song genres like Summer 2012, One hit wonders, Female singers and Movie soundtracks. The new genres cost over 140 coins each so you have to save for a while and it gives you an incentive to keep playing the game.
The quicker you answer the more points you score which is good if you both get them all correct as you still have a chance of winning. The song genres are really good and are quite accurate, my favourite is the 80's collection which is more my day. My grandaughter challenges me at Modern rap and Summer 2012 every time because she knows I won't beat her!
It is a fun game and is very easy to get to grips with. You can also play it on facebook now so if you don't have an iphone it works there too. It does freeze a little bit on my computer but I don't know if it's the app or my internet being a little bit too slow. The game is pretty basic with bright colours and simple black text so it's nice and easy to read.
I love that you can play the game with family or friends as it's more fun than just challenging a stranger. I do wish you could send a message with some challenges, especially when I get them all right so I could taunt my grandaughter! I think it is good that you can't though as it'd be a bit unsafe for younger users getting messages from strangers.
For a free game, it's definitely worth downloading as it is really addictive and quite good fun. It can get a bit frustrating when you keep losing but it makes you more determined to get better at it. Have a go!
Summary: A good fun game to play on the go
