Spuzzle(TM) Launches Free Summer iPhone App that Turns "Sharing" into a Game
July 26, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle NewsThe fun summer Spuzzle iPhone app makes it easy for players to pose a question, add photos and clues and select how they want their friends to answer it. Players can share their question by e-mail, on their Facebook wall or can tweet it.
We've all seen posts on Facebook walls that say things like "Enjoying the day playing volleyball at the park with friends" or "I'm off to the pool before heading to a concert this evening." It's great to be able to connect with friends online through social Web sites, e-mail and cell phones, but with Spuzzle(TM), people can create a Spuzzle and make a game of it – both for the person posting the comment and for the people reading it.
The Spuzzle iPhone app makes it easy for players to pose a question, add photos and clues and select how they want their friends to answer it. Players can share their question by e-mail, post it to their Facebook wall or tweet it on their Twitter page. Friends connected to the player will see the question and by using the photos and clues provided, try to answer it. As people answer the Spuzzle, the creator is notified on their phone about how their friends answered it.
As people are on vacation and enjoying outdoor activities, the Spuzzle iPhone app is available for free on the iTunes App Store under the Social Networking and Game categories. Visit www.spuzzle.com/app to access and download the app for free until August 18, 2010. Spuzzle fun is not limited to iPhone users; anyone can play for free from the Spuzzle Web site at www.spuzzle.com. Here, people can create a Spuzzle just like they would on their iPhone and share it the same ways.
Facebook and other social Web sites are realizing the need to find new ways to keep their audiences engaged with their online platforms, as seen in the popularity of applications like Mafia Wars and FarmVille. Spuzzle's goal is to provide people with a fun and interactive way to take a basic posting and turn it into a game. Social Web sites are recognizing that once the glow of connecting with friends is over, people can only share with their friends so many times that they are having a summer BBQ. Spuzzle is the next generation of apps that makes sharing information engaging and fun.
Too much fun to limit potential audiences, Spuzzle will soon offer its social questions app to companies as a new social media marketing strategy. Companies will create a Spuzzle that promotes and markets a product, service and/or their brand. Players of Spuzzle will be able to answer company questions and be rewarded for their efforts. Companies will also use Spuzzle as a game asking potential customers to figure out what they are selling instead of telling them – making it fun for the consumer and a new way for companies to breakthrough with their brand.
