We got an email this morning from ustwoâ„¢ announcing their entry into the Android market with MouthOffâ„¢, a goofy, cartoon-inspired sound-reactive toy featuring mouths illustrated by a slew of guest artists.
Since its original release, MouthOffâ„¢ has added a number of new mouth packs (including a signature series, hell-oween, etc) and even has its own community site, ShowUsYourMouthOffâ„¢, where users can share videos of themselves or others using the app.
While it may not be a game-changing app, it sure is nice to see another iPhone centric design studio move onto the Android platform. As a designer (and a super picky one at that), the things getting me most excited are the design chops displayed all over their sites.
ustwoâ„¢, as you may have guessed from the curious overuse of the trademark symbol, is in the business of what they call coollectableâ„¢ apps. It’s a silly angle but it’s refreshing to see someone with such a sense of humor. MouthOffâ„¢ is the only Android application in the market from ustwoâ„¢ at the moment, but their iPhone app site shows a handful of apps we might see show up on Android some time down the line:
MouthOffâ„¢ is our undying child, an app so beloved by every of us, that we just cant let it go. The Android Market has a big future, and we surely don’t want to miss that boat, so it was a simple decision to port MouthOffâ„¢ on this emerging platform, thus proving our abilities as a multi-platform studio. -Mill, creative director at ustwoâ„¢
