Entertainment Apps are some of my favorite ones to test and use in my personal life. When I received the review request for Distant Shore I went to the App Store to see more about this app. After reading the description I was immediately intrigued but was alittle confused to as if this is a entertainment App or social networking game app but none the less I was ready to download it and sync it to my 3G.
After syncing I started the app to notice the sounds and scenes of the beach, In the upper left corner tap the little “i” to see options, News, Help and About features. In the lower left corner is a bag icon tap this is to see messages you have picked up along the beach and bottles you have earned to create new messages to launch in to the Ocean. In order to find message that others have thrown in the ocean and have washed up on your beach you will need to walk around on the beach by tapping your finger in the direction you want to walk looking for messages in bottles and collecting Sea Shells after you have collected 5 you get a bottle to create a new message and launch it in the sea to read messages tap on one of the letter in your bag you wish to read, to compose new messages tap on a bottle and the keyboard will popup type in what you want and tap Launch.
Although I really enjoy this so called entertainment app I consider a more of a social networking game I wasn’t impressed graphics they where just ok for my. The whole concept behind this app is cool it has given me some ideas for a business app I have been thinking of developing. The idea of typing a message and throwing it in the ocean to wash up on another person using this app’s beach whom you may or may not know is brilliant, Thumbs Up on this app with the add game like features of walking around picking up messages and collecting shells make it more interesting.
At $0.99 this is well worth buying, among entertainment app this is one to get. I predict this app will be in the top 50 if not 100 paid apps for along time to come and I’m looking forward to updates & others apps this developer may releases in the future.
