I’m not sure why, but we as a people seem to be obsessed with quotes — apparently, just can’t get enough of them. Maybe it’s because we consider them pearls of wisdom that inspire us, make us stop and ponder things awhile, teach us, help us make sense of life, give us direction, or just help us remember to laugh when life gets too serious (laughter is a good medicine, you know). Status Quotes (by Very Ape) is an iPhone app with numerous quotes, sayings, and lyrics covering a variety of themes by a wide-span of famous and not so famous people.
This easy-to-use Entertainment app has 15 different topic themes: Age, Beauty, Change, Death, Dreams, Emotions, Fear, Forgiveness, Friendship, Life, Love, Music, Peace, Wisdom, and Witty. If you don’t want to be limited to these theme types, you can expand to Random and Popular. The Random selection gives a collective mix of quote types across a hodgepodge of categories. The Popular selection shows you what is ranked as the “Top 20 Quotes” — although I’m not sure how they qualified to get into this position. But, if you find that the Popular quotes aren’t doing it for you, you can create a collection of your own favorites (from those listed within the app) by simply tapping the “thumbs up” to add it to Your Favourites as you’re perusing the various themes. Normally, all quotes are displayed on a simple, but attractive silver shield with a purple background, but when you favorite one, the shield and background turn gold in color indicating that you liked it. Right and left arrows let you move ahead or backwards through the quotes and you can like (add to Your Favourites) and dislike all the quotes, as well as share through Facebook, Twitter, SMS, or email. The developers have made it really easy to move around in this app, and also included a flip screen for icon information if you need it.
Since the quotes come from some of the greatest thought leaders, musicians, celebrities/character celebrities (like Kermit the Frog), and wise unknowns, there’s bound to be something in this app for just about everyone. Overall, it’s a pretty good quote app, but one thing that would make it even better would be if the developer had labeled each person being quoted, not just telling us their names, but also letting us know what they are known/famous for: are they musicians, artists, writers, politicians, philosophers, etc. There were several people within the app that I didn’t have a clue on who they are/were. However, I did find a few new favorites: “Like many women my age, I am 28 years old,” Mary Schmich; “Beauty is being in harmony with who you are,” Peter Nivio Zarlenga; “Change is inevitable – except from a vending machine,” Robert C. Gallagher; “Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.” Bill Gates (so true); “I was trying to daydream, but my mind kept wandering,” Steven Wright; and “I didn’t slap you….I just high–fived your face,” by Unknown Author. So, if you can’t get enough of quotes, sayings, and/or lyrics, you’ll want to check out this iPhone Entertainment app. For more iPhone app reviews. Mrs. Crazy Mike
