Ever been in a boring lecture? I bet you have! Imagine yourself being in one, where the big guy is going on droning about the “important" stuffs, while all you want to do is to get a word across to the guy sitting across the hall from you! You mouth the words, yet he still doesn’t get the message. Add that to the fact that you don’t have his number! What to do! Here’s where the android app Embiggen comes in. This app review will open your eyes to the fact as to how a simple design-free app can be so useful!

Embiggen is not only a boon for the ones in a boring lecture hall. In crowded places where there’s no network coverage, it can help you convey a much-needed message to another person. How? It’s simple. Open the app, type in the message, and press ‘Go’. The message grows (literally) large enough to fit the entire screen of your device, and then all you need to do is to show the screen of your device to the person you want to convey the message to. In case there is more than one sentence, then once the first sentence is flashed you need to tap the screen once before it shows the next sentence. Creative idea, isn’t it? You not only get help in places where there’s no network support, you also get to save text balances in places where there is extensive network coverage. And let’s face it! If you type in “Hey I find you cute", and then flash it across the “cute" person rather than texting him that, chances are that he will find it much more adorable!

The size of the message obviously depends on the size of your device’s screen. The larger your screen size, the larger the message becomes. However, this shouldn’t be a constraint, since the phone companies have off late developed the habit of shelling out large-screened phones. This app review actually focuses on such an app which gives you the chance to utilize your device’s screen to the hilt. So, are you afraid of small words? Get “‘em biggened!" (I know that is not even a legal word, but who cares? Pun intended!)

Much more options are available in the next version of the app, Embiggen Plus – options like controlling the font style and other stuff. There is a settings option in this but it’s not that important. The app’s just simple, convenient and unassuming! It comes with no extra welcome pages. You just enter, and bang! It gets to the point!

Indeed a Fun app to break the jinx of easy communication through IMs but at the same time needs improvement in the aspect of design...Overall a very nice app
