Pinocchio Lies: A fun little lie detector

While they might not be accurate, lie detectors are a fun way to ask your friends random questions and get information out of them!

Overall Score: 4/5

Ultimately, this app is just a gimick. It does have science behind it, but it’s often very inaccurate. Nevertheless, it can still be lots of fun to play around with, and has a pretty decent interface to go along with it.

Gameplay: 4/5

Basically any lie detector you find will be a gimick, unless it’s actually a polygraph. With that fact aside, this app (or “game”) does have some science behind it. What the app does is records your normal talking frequency, and then compares that frequency to your future answers to detect any change in your voice. However, this isn’t very accurate, so don’t expect to get a perfect lie detector. This is truly just for messing around with and having some fun asking your friends random questions like, “Have you ever been raped by a penguin?” Which my friend answered “yes” to, and the app said was true! If that’s your idea of fun, you might like this app.

Presentation: 4/5

The app’s visuals are pretty nice, and the load speeds are great. It even resumes perfectly and quickly. It also plays back your “yes” or “no” answer after you record it, which makes the experience feel even more realistic.

Lasting Value: 3/5

You could use this infinitely, but the app doesn’t do anything special to encourage you to keep on using it, so it simply gets a mediocre 3/5 for lasting value.
