Ratings and Reviews
In my opinion this is a great app!
In my opinion this is a great app! It never had a problem recognizing me smiling! Though I did see a couple problems.. First when my phone would move a little bit because my hand was tired of holding my phone up it would count as “smiling”. Second when I would take a breath (I am a mouth breather because of something to do with my nose all my life) anyway when I would take a good breath it would count as smiling!!! Like WHAT??? Other than that it is a great app!!! I will give this a four star because I see what they were going for and I love the idea!!
Great idea. Released too early.
Although the app is very interesting, I have to admit that I did have a bit of fun using this app, it was a pain to use. First you have to aim the camera at your face (this can be annoying holding up your phone to your face for a long period of time) and then it takes 10-15 minutes for it to finally work. You have to make sure that you’re in a well lit room (believe me I was in a bright room) and then you have to make sure that you weren’t smiling (pretty easy). However it takes quite a while to detect your mouth to see whether you are smiling or not which really pisses me off. Also even when the app works as intended as soon as the first video appears it automatically ends since I was smiling when I clearly wasn’t (so this needs to be worked on). For this reason I’m giving this app a three star rating (good idea, but released way too early in my opinion). Hopefully this is updated to make the overall experience better! 🙂👍🏿
Fun game, but...
While I do believe this is a nice game to challenge your friends, or simply your own sanity, there is some language which I believe is too vulgar for younger viewers, such as the b or even the f bomb. If the age rating was around 16 then this wouldn’t be as much of a problem, but game is said to be rated for ages 4 and up. My suggestion would be to either up the age rating, or add some kind of setting to restrict those videos with stronger language or visuals.
Another issue is that there were several occasions where videos would cut off halfway through, or not show up. On one occasion the screen was circling though several titles with only audio overlapping.
Eventually my face was cut off, and audio kept playing even when I tried to cover my face to trigger a game over. Please try to look into that as well.
