iParty Crash app review: a social media app for partygoers

Reviews

Introduction

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to attend all the best parties, and hang out with the popular people, then iParty Crash may be just the app to help you scratch that itch. This app bills itself as a social media networking app, promotions app, and the place to go to find all the best parties. There are a lot of great social media apps in the App Store, but nothing quite like this. This app is definitely unique as it allows you to tap into all the parties and special events in your area. If you're willing to travel you can quickly find out about all the major happenings in every big city. This is a free app and it's compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Find the Best Parties

There are other social media apps that can point you in the direction of the biggest parties in town. Foursquare is a great app for helping you find what's going on around you and Facebook can also do the same thing, but these apps don't have the glitz and glamour of iParty Crash. This app isn't for finding the local parties – it’s about finding the biggest parties, the biggest gatherings, and the places to be. If you want to be able to say you were there when, then you'll want to check out this app because it is definitely a little different from the average social media app.

There is no doubt this is an app with a lot of potential, but unfortunately there are a few things that could use improvement. The developers don't provide the user with any kind of direction, they do send you an introductory email to explain a couple things but it's very limited. On the positive side it's not cluttered with a lot of ads or in app purchases, and the layout is pretty good, but it takes a while to figure out how things work because of the lack of direction provided. This app will require 21.2 MB of available space on your IOS device.

How it works

You can sign up either with your email or Facebook account, but when I tried to sign up with my Facebook account the app seemed to hang up. I did have better success signing up with my email. Once you've got that out of the way you can get on with using the app. Again, it would've been nice if there was a better explanation of how things work.

Essentially you'll find a navigation menu along the bottom of the screen you can use to toggle between different functions. There is a map grid you can use to search for parties, with a standard search function that can also be used to search for parties, an upload section that you can save your pictures to, a home button which will take you to the apps main media feed, and a profile option where you can adjust your own profile. Just like most other social media apps you can leave comments, add friends, and like the events that really stand out for you. The map grid is probably the best feature as it gives you a visual glimpse at the parties near you. Unfortunately most of the parties you'll find will be in major centers, so if you live in a small town you're probably out of luck unless you're willing to travel.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Helps you find all the best parties
  • Includes a map grid of parties
  • Includes familiar social media functions such as comments

Cons

  • No instructions
  • Most parties are only in major centers

Final Words

iParty crash is an app with a lot of potential. If you want to find out where all the biggest events near you are, this app is a great place to start. Unfortunately most of the major parties you'll find with this app are located in the biggest centers - this is not an app to help you find local social gatherings. Having said that, there are other apps you can use for that type of thing. This app is certainly worth a look.
