Google released Androidify at the Mobile World Congress 2011, which places Andy the mascot for Android, center stage. Androidify is as the name suggests allows users to Andy-up! and create their own Andy like avatar which they can then use for their Facebook profile picture. Lets have a closer look at Google’s latest app.
Functions & Design
When jumping into the app users will start off with the normal Andy in all his greatness, and from there users can shrink him, stretch him, change his colour and give him clothes. Modifying Andy is made so easy by simply tapping the part of his body you want to change and making the appropriate gestures to shrink or stretch a particular body part.
By tapping the coat hanger foun at the bottom of the screen the user can change their avatars get-up, choosing from a large wardrobe of different clothing items. There are also a number of accessories available such as jewelry, hats, watches, glasses and beards. With a little creativity you will be surprised with what you will be able to come up with.
Once completed users can save their avatars and store them for later use. They can be sent by email, to other apps or shared with friends via Facebook. In addition for those who feel they lack creativity, there is a randomize button which randomly generates a finished avatar which they can then use.
This app holds with the standard of apps Google normally brings to the table for Android. Androidify is very intuitive to use and has enough different customization options so that nearly everyone can have their own individual avatar. We here have alreay created a few avatars of our own and will probably create a few more in the future, it’s just a great little app, fun for all ages. We tested Androidify in version 1.0.4
