App Review: Hot Radar


A fun and cheesy app to break the ice in social situations

Hot Radar is the first of kind. An Ice Breaker app.
Its purpose is to get the attention of someone you want to talk to but might be too shy to approach, by making a fast pinging noise as you get closer to your “target”.

First things first, this is a jokey app it doesn’t actually do anything proper. However what it does do is present you with a radar type screen showing a major blip of the gender of your choice, now what your meant to do with this is find your intended person of interest then slowly tilt the device toward them as you walk closer, hopefully breaking the ice and/or making a fool of you which might not be such a bad thing.

Other than that there’s not much more to the application, There’s a “Beer Goggles” mode which seems to randomly change the ping icon between standard gender icon and the hot good looking one which I fail to see the point of probably because I’m not that in to the drinking culture.

All that aside it’s hard to fault the application, it does what it does well and is fun and just cheesy enough to actually work.

Feature Request

A little more sophistication in the hotness locator, say giving you a room layout and you mark the target then start the radar sequence?

Price $0.99

The Good

  • It’s cheap and fun
  • It’s cheesy
  • Potentially useful…

The Not So Good

  • …only if your brave enough and like a laugh like that
  • It’s cheesy (yes I know I’ve said it already)
