A Snowman Maker: Android Apps Written Review
Like building snowmen in real life? Want to have the option to build your own snowman no matter what the weather is like or what time of the year it is? Then the A Snowman Maker app from developer Detention Apps is just the app for you!
Begin designing your own individual and unique snowman topped with cool accessories and festive backdrops with A Snowman Maker. Start off by selecting one of four backgrounds: a snowy forest, the North Pole, snowcapped mountains, or a wintery village. Next chose the color of the snowman that you want. You can select traditional white, light green, snowy blue, holly red, or candlelight yellow. Tap on the screen where you want to put the main body of the snowman and go back to the color selections to place the rest of the smaller sized snowballs for the rest of the snowman. Then choose from an array of gear such as multiple colored variations of earmuffs, bows, snow boots, mittens, and even a Santa hat. Further accessorize your snowman with colored buttons, different sized carrot noses, and black coal for the eyes. Top everything off with some additional décor like candy, acorns, gifts, animals, stars, and even Santa himself along with his sleigh.
Once you’re done you have the option of emailing your creation, or taking a snapshot of it, or even using the “avalanche” function to delete the snowman if you don’t like the final outcome.
The general appearance of A Snowman Maker is average. Since this app has a simple concept, most users would probably be on the younger age side of the spectrum, so stellar graphics and additional animation may not be necessary to keep their interest going. However, during review of the app, occasional lag was noticeable, and item touch sensitivity and scrolling didn’t appear as smooth which might be considered frustrating to some users. App layout and navigation is simple and easy to figure out though, and any age user should have no problem figuring out what does what, and what goes where.
For costing 99 cents, the value of A Snowman Maker can be considered decent. Some people might not be as interesting in purchasing this app depending on what season of the year it is. However, no matter what, it is a fun and entertaining app, and younger users would find it neat to custom build and design their own snowman without ever worrying of it melting or disappearing (only if they delete it, of course).
