This week, Apple is encouraging you to move your body with its free App of the Week in the App Store, Sega Go Dance. Last Thursday, the company slashed Tiny Firefighters to zero bucks, which is an interactive app/book/game for kids, usually available for $2.99.
Do you love to dance? Then you might like SEGA GO DANCE. The app uses advanced motion-capture tech to turn your device’s FaceTime camera into a motion sensor, that recognizes and scores your movements in real-time. What you are required to do is to place your device on a table or other flat surface to fully enjoy the game. Connect your iPhone or iPad to your television via a HDMI cable or just use AirPlay to beam action wirelessly to the TV.
The developers released Go Dance last September and made it available for download for $1.99. Additionally, Go Dance was named one of the App Store’s Best Of 2013 games.
Apple explains its choice in App Store Notes:
“Each week, we select a great app and bring it to you, for free, as our App of the Week. (In-App Purchases sold separately.) SEGA’s Go Dance offers a unique experience that’ll have you standing up and boogying. Set your iPhone or iPad on an inclined surface, and the game will use your device’s built-in FaceTime camera to judge your dancing while the display shows you which moves to perform next. Perfect your routines, then go online and shake a leg against other players.”
Sega Go Dance is available as a free download in the App Store through Wednesday, March 12. It can be used by iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, fifth-generation iPod touch, iPad 2, third-generation iPad, fourth-generation iPad, iPad Air, iPad mini, and iPad mini with Retina display owners.
