    DID YOU KNOW?

    Did you know that The Sims’ success resulted in the game being awarded five world records in the Guinness World Records: Gamer’s Edition 2008? One of the records held was the “World’s Biggest-Selling Simulation Series”, which sold 16 million units, basically 100 times more than game developer Electronic Arts’ original projection of 160,000 units. The Sims series, widely regarded as one of the best series when it comes to its character creation feature, also became the best-selling PC game in history just 2 years after its release. Additionally, the series has also claimed 4 spots on the top 15 best PC games of all time. Interestingly enough, most of its spin-off games have also met with positive reviews and massive sales, along with a high number of users purchasing their expansions packs from the market.

    Despite finding its popularity on the PC, the series also has a large player base present on other gaming platforms as well. During the past few years, The Sims and all its subsequent games have been released on consoles like PlayStation 2, Xbox, and their older counterparts like the Nintendo GameCube and the Game Boy Advance, as well as an exclusive release on Android and iOS devices.

It is not a very visua-appealing app to use(dull interface) but it does you things other apps don't: making your imagination into reality! I wish this app can have some improvement on the user interface, though."

      "This is simply amazing. I hadn't ever heard of this until I saw a review for it on Youtube. The software will literally bring your drawings and illustrations to life by using a camera and microphone, with your face as the guide! It will mimic your expressions and translate them to your characters. I had to try it out for myself to believe it. Simply put, I was stunned! The only reason I'm deducting a star is because of the way they charge you for it. They charge you per month, you can't just buy the software outright like you used to be able to with Adobe."

      "is a very basic application, it is good for children who are just beginning to discover options, but I see very little space in time, there are more advanced applications, with better tools to create, it is somewhat complicated, the tools are not easy to use , you have to do many things to create a circle for example, you should rename the interface between placing the figure and painting it, without having to make two or even three steps to create it, but finally, as it is for children, what I do think is that the children will lose the interest quickly in the application."
