Not bad but falling behind
Kyle Kane write:
This was the first idea generator app I used. It has the nicest UI but it could really use a way to save my database to google docs or some similar site ( even wifi to desktop would be great.) I had a crash and had to restore my phone and lost all my inputted words, a real pain.
This app also has some annoying bugs. When you rotate the screen everything gets offset and if you rotate it again it just keeps offsetting further until the whole thing is totally off the screen. Also it needs a better input setup, the add button is a bit too small and it usually takes several tries to hit it for me.
Word Twiddle is a little bit more developed as of now and allows me to save the ideas to a library where I can review them. I like this interface more but end up using the other app more often now.
For it's current price, $5, this app needs more work. I got it at $.99 and I really don't think it's worth more than that in it's current state. Asking $4.99 seems like a flossing to me. One last note, the developers haven't done much in terms of updates for this app so my hopes of it improving are pretty small.
NOT worth $4.99 - VERY SMALL database
Maj. Minnow write:
A simple--and potentially interesting--App that would be worth 99 cents--But not $4.99. Pre-programmed database is far too small [e.g. I got "doubles" on my third, fourth, and sixth tries]. Yes, you can add new words to your database, but spending your time and imagination doing that defeats half the point of this App. A clever concept, but not worth the price of admission in its current state.
Once you start entering your own word lists, it's pretty fantastic
I don't usually find myself stumped for an idea, but this app is helping me create surprisingly enjoyable combinations. I did end up removing most of the original words the app comes with and entering my own-- for those who complain about having to do so, I'll say only that a smidgen of creativity is pretty par for the course. I'm pretty satisfied with the 'noun-verb-noun' formula, personally, but the ability to edit is what makes this app so excellent. The interface is simple, intuitive, and there's absolutely no lag when I want to flip through the 'lock' buttons-- deciding which words to keep for the next combination.
My only request regarding future updates is to have the option to scroll through words manually, in addition to the 'randomize' button.
All in all, a fantastic app for those with a little imagination. Thank you!
