Are You a True App Expert? Find out with What's That App?

We kind of like to think of ourselves as app experts around here, so it was hard to resist putting our knowledge to the test with a silly new quiz game called What’s That App? The verdict? We creamed level one, but the tiny slices of obscurity by level three had at least one of us using the process of elimination as often as answering with confidence.

The app pulls icons from the top 600 apps currently in the App Store, which might explain part of our consternation. While Pandora, Netflix, Angry Birds and Where’s My Water all are identifiable with even a corner, some of the apps are rather obscure like random emoji, flashlights, and the inevitably odious “talking” apps du jour.

The game is an endless pictorial multiple choice affair with daily updates to reflect chart changes, local settings so the icons shown are those you will be familiar with no matter where you app-shop, and Game Center integration. What's That App? costs $.99 and might not appeal to the average iOS device owner, but for those who read, say, app review sites, and consider themselves mavens, it’s a pleasant way to kill a few minutes showing off your iOS fanboy (or fangirl) mettle.
