Android Application of the week: SliceIt
SliceIt has a simple premise. Take the shape provided, and using a pencil – draw straight lines to cut into equally sized pieces. I found myself trying to remember old geometry rules of bisecting triangles with lines to make equal sized objects (yes, I find that fun!) it probably does not require as much analysis as I gave it though to still be fun.
As levels get more complicated, there are red “no draw” areas, and mirrors that reflect your lines. – adding to the challenge. Hundreds of levels.
Developers, as you know – the more ratings you get on the market – the higher your app appears in your categories. After about 15 levels, SliceIt gave me screen saying “5 star ratings speed development. Would you like to rate this application on the market?” A yes click opened up the market page where you leave a rating for SliceIt. I thought that was an elegant way to encourage users who might not normally leave feedback to do so.
