Prank apps are a dime a dozen in the app store and PhotoDrop is just adding itself to the never-ending list of applications that have a unique idea but absolutely no use outside of that idea. The goal of Photo Drop is to give iPhone and iPod Touch users the chance to fool their friends by making photos fall apart and react to tilting the device.
The app works particularly well on a screenshot of the springboard or the home screen of the iPhone. Enabling it, users can hand the phone to a friend and the second they go to use it, the icons will fall from their place and begin moving around. This is pretty convincing and makes for a nice gag, but the app has no use outside of this little trick. It allows users to add their own photos to mess around with, but I still have not found a reason why I would want to do that. It still moves the pieces as if they were icons and makes for a really cheesy looking physics app. Using them on a screenshot of the home screen will make for a realistic tragedy on your phone but anything else is just pointless.
There is no way to reset the application either and anytime the user wants to reset the photo they have to exit the app and then go back in and pick the photo again. The app then tries to market itself as a game of some sort by having users try to get the pieces back into their designated spots, but this is just not entertaining enough. Unless you have the need for the most mind numbing entertainment ever conceived by man or a simple trick to fool your friends once, I suggest passing on this application. The fact that it costs money only made it easier for me to decide not to keep this one around.
