SongPop iPhone app review

The SongPop iPhone App is a quiz oriented game and can be counted as another one on the assembly line. But No! This app is different in many ways. Though it is modeled on the Draw Something structure it uses authentic music that is licensed in place of complicated questions presented in text. SongPop iPhone App was released earlier on many platforms like Android and iOS and it was also an application for Facebook. Though it went unnoticed by many at the time of release it became the application of the moment with its clear inspiration.


The SongPop iPhone app features with 6 playlists containing hits ranging from Classic Rock to present day hits to play with. Everyone will find something for them, thousands of songs from golden oldies to modern hits, test your friend’s memory for music by posing quick challenges to them. Unearth more playlists containing more artists, more genre and unique collections of songs. A new chat system for chatting away while you play. Also it can be played online. Moreover it allows you to participate in tournaments.

Appearance and Layout

It’s a simple iPhone game and simpler than ‘Draw Something’.  The play format is that you challenge one of your friend or friends through email or Facebook logon through the application. You then select a genre of music that you would like the questions to be generated from. The songs can be diverse, from love songs to classics, to the present day Rap Music. You need to find the correct answer from multiple-choice option by carefully listening to the music that is played. The answers have to come rapidly and you get more points for that. You also need to get the right answers for all the five clips to get the points.  Then comes the turn of your opponent who play the same round as you and try overtaking your score.  It is a complete rocker and the action is fast paced and it hardly takes a minute or two each time.

The one who wins the initial round gets the point and also has the choice of alternating the category. The points scored will be more if you answer the quiz correctly and in pretty quick time. By amassing points you also have the choice of unlocking songs more specifically. As the server counts you know exactly how much time is left. The game is reset after every week.

The SongPop iPhone App has been presented in a way that it is very appealing to the younger generation. On the screen the competitor’s names are displayed on top like Jenny vs Yang and a photo of musical record in between. Then you have the visuals of the music genre in contention and the playlist with photos of each artiste clearly displayed on a lighter back ground. Picture of record is displayed with each track and it gives a musical feeling when you look at them.

SongPop app requires iOS 4.0 or later and it is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad.
