Being of a practical nature, I’m always on the hunt for applications that are useful for everyday life — and I’ve found one in this iOS Universal Entertainment app called Chatoms. Chatoms provides interesting little conversational starters revolving around 7 different topic categories to stimulate and get some real conversations rolling off your tongue. Not only is it a tool that may make you feel more confident about starting a conversation with people you’ve recently met, it’s also a great way to spend time conversing with family and friends.
The topic categories are: Normal, Fun, Philosophy, Out There, Love, Naughty, and Personal. I found the user interface in this iPhone app to be pleasantly easy (“stupid” simple) and clean looking. To access the different categories, just tap the “+” sign in the upper right corner and you’ll have the option to narrow or expand your topic categories by turning each category on or off. Obviously, not all categories are appropriate for all occasions and some categories have more or less conversation starters than others.
Just for fun, I’ll give you a peek at an example from each category. Normal: “Have you been to any concerts lately?” Fun: “If snow could fall in any flavor, what flavor would you choose?” Philosophy: “Would you give up junk food to live 10 years longer?” Out There: “If you could live on any TV channel, what would it be?” Love: “When and with whom was your first kiss?” Naughty: “What seemingly normal thing turns you on?” (there are some pretty suggestive queries here — definitely not for kids) Personal: “What are some of your long-term life goals?”
After looking at a lot of conversation starters across the 7 categories, I thought there was a lot of practical, fun, and interesting ideas to talk about and to ponder with others. One thing that I did notice was that even when I set the category selection for only 1 topic, it still allowed other categories to display after my selected topic selection finished — and then continued on with random categories. This iPhone app would be better if it stayed on topic and then gave you the option to switch to another topic.
Honestly, I wouldn’t feel comfortable passing the iPhone around to kids without a lock or password on some of the other category topics (mostly Naughty due to the suggestive and risqué content) — so, Parents, keep that in mind. Personally, I like the app and feel it’s useful for a lot of situations like: conversing with acquaintances, promoting family conversations at the dinner table or in the car, some fun laughs with your closest friends, as well as some intimate or racy date conversations with your significant other. Never a dull conversation now with this interesting and useful iPhone app — and it’s only $0.99 — so, who is up for some dazzling conversation? Check out all our iPhone app reviews. Mrs. Crazy Mike
