Tap Tap Revenge 3 is one of those classic applications for the iPhone & iPod Touch which everyone knows about. The Tap Tap Revenge series, from now on referred by me as TTR, has been around the Apple App Store for quite some time now. TTR3 was released to the App Store somewhere in the fall of 2009, with great expectations. It did serve for some drama & was definitely “the” application to have at the time. Unfortunately, the application lost it’s popular reputation very quick, as TTR3 had, & still has, things that the users don’t like.
In my opinion TTR3 has a very poor UI (User Interface). The developers didn’t seem to care about the UI too much, but more about the new features. It seemed like they were too excited about placing the new features, than creating a good & pleasant-to-use interface.
The application itself. also runs very slowly. It responds extremely slowly, especially while launching the app. TTR3 should also include a better variety of song genres, at the moment it’s mostly Metal & Pop. I understand that the developers want to earn revenue off of users purchasing their favorite songs, but they should at least give a small taste to what users can possible buy. Another great feature that the game has, is that you are able to play against other users that are in a certain distance to your location (People near you). But unfortunately, this never works. I’ve tried to find people that are in a close area to mine, but it always fails.
With that being said, I think that TTR3 is a good application for music-lovers, but lacking a pleasant UI. If you would like to give TTR3 a good try, you may download it here. Thankfully it’s free! 🙂
