Why mess around with horoscopes when you can ask the all knowing Robodamus to look deep into your future! Robodamus – Robotic Fortune Teller is your pocket sized window into the future. This cute little app provides you with serious, humorous, and custom tailored predictions and advice. Anytime you’re looking to get a sneak peak into the future just tap Robodamus and he’ll consult his never been wrong crystal ball.
Ok, so maybe Robodamus really can’t predict the future, but if you use him right you can definitely get a kick out of convincing others that he does! Created by James Purdy, Robodamus is uniquely designed to provide 3 specific types of fortune: insults, philosophical, and one’s you make up yourself. Now, depending on your preference you can customize the probability that Robodamus will give a specific type. Using a simple slider you can adjust whether you want more, less, or none at all of particular types. So if you’d like more insults than serious, just slide the Humor slider over to the right and slide the Serious and Custom sliders to the left. You can slide any of them all the way to the left to completely exclude them. It’s as simple as that.
For myself, I prefer the serious ones. It gives me something to look forward to. However, if you’ve got some gullible friends then you will definitely want to beef up your custom ones. Adding a custom fortune is really easy. All you’ve got to do is type it in and save it. Robodamus then plucks from your customs at random. So, if you’re dating someone you really like just conjure up some romantic diddies and introduce your boo to the wonders of Robodamus!
Robodamus is the type of app that’s entertainment value relies solely on the creativity of it’s beholder. If you’re a bit of a prankster and really creative you’ll get a total kick out of it. You can get gullible people thinking that the app is genius and you can convince significant others that you guys are meant to be! But, if you’re as sharp as a butter knife and have the social skills of a gnat then you probably won’t enjoy this app as much. Just running it for standard fortunes has short lived entertainment value.
Overall the sounds and graphics the app provides are really sweet. If I could change anything about the app it’d be to make Robodamus talk. I feel like he should recite the fortunes verbally and maybe even laugh at you a little bit when you get an insulting fortune. Maybe even give a serious look or gasp if he reveals a not so good fortune. Currently he’s somewhat personality-less because aside from swinging into view and revolving his robotic hands he’s more or less a stiff. I’d also love to see Twitter and Facebook integrated so peoples fortunes can be posted for all their friends to see.
