Reviews

Introduction

When it comes to chatting with people nowadays most people rely in IM's, text messages, and emails but how about a more traditional way to form a message, one that seems a whole lot more intriguing. The Mystery Messages app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone gives you the chance to create some rather cool-looking messages that are handwritten. These aren't just ordinary looking messages though; these are ones that will strike a real chord with people.

Create Your Own Mysterious Notes

It's time to create some really cool mysterious notes that are a throw-back to a more traditional way of communicating. With the Mystery Messages app you'll be able to make a million different mystery messages and while you work classical music will play in the background making the experience all the more exciting. The app includes 15 photo scenarios that are meant to feel and look realistic. Keep in mind that only 12 of them are offered for free, the other ones require an in-app purchase. There is a 12-page wall calendar that you can print and three different stages to explore.

The app has a few in-app purchases available that range in price from $0.99 to $2.99. It is a new release so it doesn't yet have any updates or a customer rating. There are a number of customer comments already however and all of them are very positive. Players have described the game as awesome, superb, and super addictive.

A Creepy and Ominous Vibe

When you launch the Mystery Messages app the first thing that strikes you is that it’s got a really creepy and ominous vibe. You will be told to begin by making a ransom note and you are given a number of random words that have been clipped out of magazines. You don’t have to think of what the note should say, you just tap on the bottom left corner of the screen to view what you are trying to put together. Next you need to search for the words and you can find them in any order. You can move around the screen by swiping and you can pinch to zoom in and see the words more clearly.
