App of the Week: Akinator

Akinator is a great application that can read your mind and tell you who you are thinking about just by answering a couple of questions.

This app allows you to think of a fictional or non-fictional character and the guru guesses your character based on questions he asks throughout the game.

Akinator is available for a free download on the Android market, but $1.99 for iPhones in the app store.

“I downloaded the app a couple of days ago and my roommates and I play on it every night. It’s so cool,” Stephanie Dubel, junior exercise science major, said.

It was voted the No. 1 app in Japan, France and Russia. In the U.S., the application is rated with four out of five stars in the iTunes store. You can also change the atmosphere of the game’s background.

The application is available for computers, with the same setup as the mobile devices.

You can share your experience and give feedback to fellow users on Facebook and Twitter.

After downloading the app,  the genie asks you a series of introductary question, including the gender and if they’re a famous person through either movies or television.

Throughout the game, the application starts to ask more in-depth questions such as “is your character the author of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’” or “is your character the designer of clothes?”

From there, the genie guesses your intended person and you sit in amazement. If the genie guesses the incorrect answer, you are allowed to put the name of the character you were thinking of into the applications database.

The Akinator application is a great app because it is simple and easy to use, but also provides hours of entertainment for your friends and family alike.
