When you come across an app in the App Store that’s a little bit different from the standard fair it’s like a breath of fresh air. Pic It! Is that type of app. We all like to share our photos with friends and family but after a while it gets a little stale. The Pic It! app allows you to share your photos with friends and family and make a game of it in the process; it’s something a little different. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
We all love to share our pictures and the developers of Pic It! have come up with a unique way to do that. Instead of just sending your pictures to friends and family with this app you can make a fun game of it. Everybody loves a little trivia contest and with Pic It! you can create your own personal trivia contest; it’s fun and it’s addictive.
My main criticism of this app is that you have to use Facebook to distribute your picture trivia contests. Pic It! would be a whole lot better if you could use other methods to send your pictures such as Twitter or email. We don’t always want to share things with everybody on our friends list; sometimes it’s nice to have a private interaction with one friend at a time. There’s something to be said for the intimacy of one on one communication. This app will require 52.1 MB of free space on your iOS device.
How it Works
When you boot up the app you’ll be prompted to allow Pic It! to access your camera and your photos – you’ll have to accept this for the app to work. Once you’ve got that out of the way you can get started with creating your own personal trivia contest. You can either use an existing picture from your photo library to create your trivia contests or you can take a new picture within the app.
Once you’ve chosen the picture you want to use you’ll be able to create your picture trivia question in a matter of seconds and it’s quite an easy process. The app creates a split screen with your picture on top and the answer to your trivia question on the bottom. To add your question simply tap on the word hint that’s superimposed over your question and type your question then tap on the checkmark to save it. To include your answer tap on the word answer in the bottom box - when you’re satisfied save it and then tap on the green arrow to continue. The last step is to send it to your friends so that they can pay with you. They have to have the Pic It! app as well or they won’t be able to play. It’s a great way to spice things up.
You can only play Pic It! with your Facebook friends
If your friends don’t have the Pic It! app they can’t play the game
Pic It! is a fun new way to share your pictures with friends and family. The idea of turning your regular pictures into a trivia contest makes the process a lot more fun and it’s easy to use. It’s too bad you can only play the game through Facebook but it’s still a lot of fun.
