I’m sure you would agree with me that in most small Christmas party you’ve attended, or even teambuilding sessions, there’s always a Pinoy Henyo activity. Why not? It’s fun, every Pinoy knows it and it’s easy to set up.
Well Pinoy Henyo which is brought to us by kaizenbrew arrived in the Android Market so you don’t have to prepare your cardboard/paper answers. The app is quite simple in nature programming-wise but it would be a lot of help in organizing your next Pinoy Henyo party.
Pinoy Henyo can be played in 4 modes. First is guess the word in under 2 minutes. Or guess as many as you can in 2 minutes or 3 minutes. Finally, the app allows you to enter your own words to create your dictionary if you’re working on a theme or just want to add specific words. If you leave it to the app, some words are quite challenging (larynx anyone?) and is a mixture of Filipino and English terms. What’s missing is you can’t use your dictionary and randomize the order or play as much as you can in a given time.
The word and timer will appear in big bold letters and will scroll sideways so you can view long words. I guess you need a phone with a big screen so that the audience won’t have to squint to see the word. It would also be nice if the scrolling is smooth or if you can set how fast or slow the text would scroll. It’s a bit annoying as it is if viewed for a long time.
Pinoy Henyo is a free app and runs on mobile advertisements that appear at the bottom of the screen when playing. You can always turn data or WiFi off so that these ads won’t show. Go and visit the Market on your Android phone to download Pinoy Henyo.
So what are you waiting for? Download it now and use it on your next party.
