Hard to complain if it's free but...

:
I wouldn't pay for the full version of this app. Obviously, unless there is a large supply of mysteries, the app will get old very quickly as there is no replayability.

Also, the writing is definitely lacking. I understand the stories are meant to be simple and easy to process, but that doesn't mean they have to sound amateurish. One of my biggest pet peeves, starting two closely placed sentences with the same temporal phrase, occured in one story ("By now..." was the offending phrase). This made it seem very childlike (think of a grade-schooler writing "And then.." over and over).

Additionally, there may be a technical issue with the clues, as they didn't work as they were portrayed in the tutorial. If you look at the clues before solving, it doesn't just direct you to the applicable sentence, it gives the full explanation, and there are no buttons at the bottom to switch from clue to explanation (or vice versa). Lastly, the scroll wheel selector for the solve option would be much better if it did not spin endlessly, repeating the names. With such short stories, the names tend to run together, and as you are trying to place characters with names to formulate your guess, it gets a tad confusing.

Overall, I think this is a good concept that was just poorly executed. I only tried the free version, so I don't know how many total stories are/will be available, and I don't know whether there are different writers for these other stories. However the level of quality represented by this version certainly does not indicate any reason for me to purchase a full version.

Clue On The Go

I purchased the full version as it's a great way to pass time! I used it while waiting on the Dentist and on my rides to work. Solved a few puzzles. Love this stuff! The stories are very well done, and hard to solve. Much better than the old paper version of this! Great job!
