Everyone loves a good game of charades, and there is loads of content in this app to keep you amused for hours. I should point out, however, that there have been some complaints about the tilt function not working so you might want to consider this before downloading this app.

Share Your Charades Online

Flipside Charades is supposed to work on the basis of tilting your iOS device when someone guesses correctly or incorrectly but I’m not sure how consistently this will work with different models so bear this in mind before making your final decision to download it.

One thing I do really like about this app though is that you can record your antics by using your device’s built-in camera, and these videos can then be shared with your friends and family online; this is sure to make for some hilarity!
