iPhone and iPad Application: Volt - $0.99 US - Score: 2 IV's
What is Volt?
Volt is an application that unleashes 3D lightning from your fingertips on your iPhone and/or iPad. Volts are electrifying, highly customizable and perfect for practical jokes and funky wallpapers. You can also duel with Jedi Force Lightning. This app is ranked #1 in the Entertainment category in over 12 countries with over half a million downloads! The app store
also claims Volt is great for stress relief if someone is bothering you - simply add a photo and electrocute them for instant satisfaction. Talk about cool!
What do you like about it?
It's a fun little app. The lots of flexibility with color and sounds! Best of all it keeps little kids and babies really entertained! This app mimics the electrostatic balls at museums and science fairs minus the hair standing straight up on your head part. Get ready for a realistic electrifying sound, vibrating and energized colored bolts as you touch the screen. One of the best features is you can choose a pic from your photo library and add some electrifying spunk. It's also fun to prank people - make sure you turn the vibrate on as it's more realistic!
What did you not like?
Not loud enough and it would be great if it doubled as a taser! In all seriousness this is a gimmick app so don't expect to stay interested for too long. You can't save an image as your in-app background either, it will revert to the default view each time you start the app. You can't share pictures directly to social networking sites either - that would be cool.
