It’s pretty incredible how creative developers took the hype to their advantage and jump onto the bandwagon to came up with a series of apps to welcome the British’s current third in the line of succession, Prince George of Cambridge. Who says only the news reporter can join in the fun? App developers show us what fun really is.
UsingMac snoops around and manages to find some quirky iOS apps that made perks up in the midst of repeated news stories flashing across all possible media. As we congratulate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in our hearts, let’s do a quick revisit before the hype of the Royal Baby goes down.
As you turn on the app, you will be greeted with soothing welcoming music and an appearance that is generally consistently designed. However, the free version comes with ads that come in the way while you are doing the photo booth. You may get quite irritated and opt for the paid upgrade instead.
You can buy more characters including Prince Harry and Prince Charles, or purchase accessories such as the crown and jewels, that speaks of royalty. These will add interesting elements to your resulting photos. Each in app purchase cost of USD0.99. Or you can opt to purchase all in-app purchase at a cost of USD2.99.
We have tried with our photos but unfortunately it didn’t look very successful.
We were not quite sure what to expect when we downloaded this app. It’s actually a magazine stand on out iOS device. The app is generally stylish looking and it’s easy to browse and read content. However, most of the content needs to be paid for.
What a refreshing way of promoting a service! Beneath its appearance that speaks only of Royal Baby, it is actually a marketing initiative by Future Folio, a publishing platform that distributes content over new media.
A simple slot machine game whereby you can place your bet and start spinning. Needless to say the items appearing on the slot machine are all about the London. Likewise, this is free app that comes with in-app purchases.
We wished the images could have looked better in quality and higher in resolution. The audio sounds make the game slightly more exciting.
Even though the title says “Will & Kate”, you will see none of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son, Prince George’s faces here. Likewise, this is also an app that promotes a service or product, in this case, this app sells eBooks content.
Much to our delight, this is actually such a lovely illustrated ebook, filled with pleasant pastel colors. Kids will love the visuals, audios and a storyteller. Parents can choose to read with their kids and have storyteller do the work. The rest of the ebooks in this app follow the same style of illustration and mood for story reading.
Now that the title of the Royal baby is out, this app seems a little irrelevant now. Before Prince George was finally announced, many people were guessing and speculating all possible names. Most placed the best guesses on traditional names such as Alexander and George.
In this simple app, you can select the gender and suggest a name for the little Royal Highness. In the name of fun, find out how many people voted for a certain name that you have chosen too.
