Christmas Fortune Cookies: Written Android App Review
Concept & Features:
Reviewed by Valerie Lauer
Forget about plain old Christmas cookies. Christmas Fortune Cookies are where it’s at. Gussied up versions of your favorite fortune cookies, normally obtained with take out Chinese food, grace this whimsical application that puts the ho-ho-ho in the holidays.
And just like those perennial take out favorites, these cookies come equipped with a variety of motivational and amusing fortunes. Some even come with lucky numbers, in case all you want for Christmas is to win the lottery.
Soothing background music is sure to smooth frayed nerves, and a randomized algorithm helps ensure you don’t get the same fortune repeatedly. Who couldn’t use a bit of good news this time of year? Personally, I find this app simple and amusing in the best way.
Layout & Design:
Christmas Fortune Cookies
The Christmas Fortune Cookies Android app sports six unique holiday cookie designs with sprinkles, snowflakes, and the colors of the season.
Using the app is also quite easy. Simply tap on your desired fortune cookie design. Tug the ends of the cookie in opposite directions to display your fortune, resting peacefully amidst the broken cookie halves. There’s even a satisfying crunch as the cookie comes apart. I can nearly taste the stale vanilla now.
While there’s nothing horribly moving about this app’s design, it does the trick and manages to be pleasant and interesting without overselling or bombarding you with pesky advertisements – always a plus!
I did find the pull apart interface a wee bit unresponsive at times. In my haste, I also occasionally closed the application while vigorously trying to pull the cookie bits apart (it’s not hard to accidentally hit the back or home button!). No worries, faithful readers, I didn’t poke my eye out.
And what, you ask, does this little piece of whimsical holiday glee cost? A mere $.99, my friends. That’s not half bad. If you’re looking for a laugh, or just a bit of extremely general advice and insight this holiday season, you could do much worse.
In other worse, this app’s an instant classic, like the roast duck in A Christmas Story, and you owe it to your own mental wellbeing to give it a shot.
