Next Sentence app review: create your own fun stories



There are solo-type games and there are ones that are meant to be enjoyed as a group and in a social atmosphere. We've got one that is perfect to play with friends and others around the world. The Next Sentence app can be played on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and gives you a chance to create unique and often hilarious stories all your own. The way this game works is that each person takes a turn completing a sentence. By the time you're done you've got something crazy, ridiculous, and a whole lot of fun.

Get Creative and Social

I love games that feel different and this is the case with this one. You get a real sense of fun, challenge, and just a fun vibe all around. You are given a title for a story and anywhere from a couple of words to a full sentence from the player who has played before you. Now it's up to you to add your words/one sentence to keep the story going and determine what it's about. What’s really fun is as the game progresses you end up using your imagination more and more trying to guess the twists and turns that may have happened in the plot. You can add a sentence that is funny, romantic, suspenseful, silly, scary, or whatever you feel like.

This app has recently been updated so users no longer have to worry about it freezing and/or crashing, as this was happening from time to time. The app has a very strong 4.5 out of five stars from users who can't get enough of the addictive and fun gameplay.

Game Features to Touch Upon

There are a number of game features to touch upon here such as the fact that you can play with your friends or people from anywhere in the world. If you choose to play with a group of friends you can use the Pass & Play mode so everyone can play on just one device. You simply take your turn and pass the device on to the next person. When you're playing in this game mode you can set up some customization options before you start to decide how much time each person gets for their turn, how many turns in total the story should have, and how many words a sentence can have. When you finish you can email the story to yourself.

If you'd rather play online you'll be able to invite friends through Facebook or you can play in a public room.
