I love it when an application comes along that is not only fun to play around with but also useful in addition to being absolutely free. This combination can’t go wrong and this is certainly proven true with MotionX-Dice. Taking a look at practical application, let us imagine that you are discussing what type of restaurant you and your companion may be in the mood for. Do you want Mexican, Italian, Chinese, salad, sushi, or hamburgers? With a flick of the wrist the dice can decide your fate.
The application utilizes the built-in accelerometer that is standard on any iPhone or iPod Touch to detect shaking and uses it as a trigger to roll the dice. The sounds are well done and the physics engine is impressive.
Perhaps the most impressive and undeniably awesome part of this particular app is the variety of dice to choose from. Dice themed to determine the fate of chance between Letterman and Leno are just one of the many textures available for you to pick from before you give the device a little shake. Table textures are also plentiful and equally interesting. This gem is free and it packs a serious punch in terms of overall character. I could see this app making a lot of money if it ever carries a price tag as its value is clearly apparent from the first flick of the wrist.
