    The party game similar to CatchPhrase™ or Taboo™ (but with far more features and modes!)





    Play this exciting game with family or friends
    as you try to describe and guess the correct phrases out loud to each other
    before time runs out!

    PhoneFraze is the party game (4 - 20+ players) that is always with you! Show off your cool, new phone to your friends!​

    Similar board games sell at Target for $25+ and are fun, but this android version is MUCH better:


    • Play your own mp3's off your SD Card for the music!
    • Multiple timer lengths
    • Thousands of phrases + free themepacks
    • Suggest new words on our Facebook page
    • No more replacing batteries
    • Your phone is always with you!

    We are looking for feedback and reviews from the Android community as we are very interested in actively refining and perfecting the game!

    100+ views and no one has downloaded and played it with their friends yet? :)

    I have a few suggestions:
    1. Options to display number of teams (say you can choose 2 teams, Red team and Blue team or whatever)
    2. Add auto scoring that displays on the screen.
    3. Add a more difficult option in there...like taboo, which excludes words that you cannot mention (this might be the hardest part and it might take too much resources to do).

    @eleazar - We are looking forward to hearing your review!

    @safeplayer22 - Thank you for the feedback. We greatly appreciate it and I will address each point.

    1. The game is designed to work with no teams or 2 teams. The 1st game mode is with no teams, and the second and third game modes are with two teams. In the 'scramble' version people need to be sitting (or standing) every other person, and in the 'heads up' mode each team gets a crack at the entire round timer to see how many words they can get correct.

    2. In an earlier version we had auto calculated scoring, but there were a few requests to remove it because it confused people. On the 'Heads Up' mode it would probably be a valuable option to add and I will see if we can get that out on the next release!

    3. That is a great idea, and we have been thinking about ways to add a few more interesting elements to the game. With the many thousands of phrases in our lists, you are correct in thinking it could take some serious time to add this in!

    We are currently in the process of adding more themes and wordlists, so if anyone would like to contribute, please let us know. :)

    This game looks like a lot of fun. Is it a good game to play with younger kids?

    -Forceclose issues with some Froyo phones
    -Automatic App 2 SD card
    -New Word lists!!!

    If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to post. Thanks!
