We were set out to research 5 apps based on 1 person, I chose to use Pewdiepie as my person.
App 1 – Pewdiepie Soundboard
Very simple interface, with different coloured Pewdiepie logo with text on each button, it is a very functional app, really fun as well if you are a fan of Pewdiepie.
App 2 – Run Pewdiepie!
The interface is very neat but it does not match the game as the game is a 8 bit game, and the interface is much higher than 8 bit, the sounds match the game as it is the character and his tone fits in perfectly with the style of the game, overall it is a very addictive game.
App 3 – Flap PooDPie
The UI uses too many colours, it makes it difficult to spot the play button, also the graphics at the bottom of the game is unnecessary, distracting and irrelevant as you can already see the big ‘Bro fists’ which everyone knows him by. This is the same as Flappy Bird just not as neat.
App 4 – PewDiePie (unofficial)
Simple app with a simple interface, for fans to keep updated with latest news and updates; twitter, new video upload, facebook ect. Categories on the left and content on the right with thumbnails. Has everything a PewDiePie fan needs.
App 5 – PewDiePie Fans
Youtube for PewDiePie fans but… you can only watch the last 25 latest videos uploaded, which is not that bad but audience will want more, I would prefer to just go to Pewdiepies YouTube channel.
My app idea was to make an app for Pewdiepie, as he is one of my favourite YouTubers.
my idea was to create a quiz game about Pewdiepie, everything is annotated on the images below.
A quiz is one of the most suitable apps for a person who does gaming videos, it reflects his career and interests.
In AppFurnace, Scan the code below:
I downloaded Pewdiepie’s logo and edited it, it went from a bro fist with 3 fingers to 4 fingers, this was done by selecting the lasso tool and drawing around the fist to create a selection, then I would resize it so it fits in the P and draw the pinky finger with the pen tool; draw the finger, make the path a selection and fill it with the colour of the first (using picker), then finally in a new layer placed behind the logo, fill the gaps made from moving the bro fist.
All images I used were PNG because I needed the transparency, also most were edited and filtered with the cutout filter in artistic section. All colour’s used were of the same shade, mainly blues with a bit of red and cream.
Once you answer all questions, you get a score page with a character that you match with and the amount of answers you got correct. We had to keep some things out such as the drag and drop functions, we did not have enough time or knew how to code it in.
The target audience is 13-30 year olds, both male and female fans who are also gamers but not necessarily, Pewdiepie has a wide audience, his videos are very entertaining and humorous, that is also why he has so many subscribers.
