It’s cute but there’s this one thing
It’s really cute, I’ll give it that. I haven’t been able to get the full genie experience because I JUST got one of my friends to try it out (he’s downloading it as I type), but I will express that there is one thing that annoyed me while making my Genie. Their hairstyle don’t include dreadlocks. Yea, they’ve included curly hair women but with how often you see locs you’d think we would be included. Most other games that give you the option to build your character has locs as an option, so when I’m building a “clone” of myself I’d like it to represent me as much as possible and that’s something that they overlooked. It’d be nice if they could update the hairstyles to include everyone because when you even have the option to be bald, it seems like those of us with locs are the only ones that have been left out. Otherwise, it’s really 5 stars.
Fun animations - but you’ll need friends
Genie creates amazing, fun animations of your personal avatar (“Genie”) in wacky situations - perfect for Instagram, Snapchat, and group texts. Two downsides: 1. You can’t do anything with your avatar until it’s approved by them. Took like 3 weeks in my case. 2. Therefore, it’s hard to get your posse on this trend quickly. Clearly, the app is way more fun if you know people, because you can add their genies to your animations. The app provides a few celebs to use until you build your friend group, but it seems like the apps “exclusivity” is working against it going viral among us common folk. Still, super fun animations!
Makes reading the news fun!!
Genies is genius!! What a fun way to connect with friends, share news stories, and learn about what’s going on in the world. Stories are personalized to your interests so you’re guaranteed reading stuff that you care about. Although there isn’t a gender neutral option yet, characters can be personalized to a very impressive level, from 20+ face shapes to all sorts of clothing. Animations are funny, entertaining, and help people relate to each other more. The one thing I have an issue with is their approval process, which seems to be based on how much social media influence you have; if they made it more readily available to include everyone, I’m sure they’d find even greater success! Great team, great concept, great execution. I can’t wait to see how this app develops!
