Review: Cheers! – Share your toasts

Today I came across this application called Cheers which lets you share a toast with a complete stranger.  I loved the idea of the app so I started using it. It’s fun to use and meet new people who share the same interest. After a while of using it, I thought I would write the review of this app and share the spirit. So here it is.

Cheers! – Experience a totally new way to toast with people!

Like I said the application is a very simple but comes with a classy idea. It lets you share a toast with a stranger. After installation the app welcomed me with a quick intro about the app. The intro was very nice looking and it can only tempt a user to try out the app.

You will have to register an account on Cheers server before you can actually start sharing the toasts. You can do this from within the app itself and it doesn’t take much time.

How does it work?

Using the app is pretty easy. Like the introduction says, you will have to take a photo of yourself or yourself with your friends and put your name and location on it using the app. This will be done automatically if you accept the geo-localisation.  Once you complete this, you will be put on a waiting list until some other cool people are ready to share the toast. If there are no users to share the toast with, you will have to wait until the app finds someone. Once it finds a person to share the toast, it will give you push notification.

Once you are done registering, you will be greeted with an interface where your previous toasts will be shown along with a camera icon to share a new toast. Clicking on the camera icon will take you to the camera where you can use either your front camera or rear camera and take the photo. Once the photo has been taken you can enter your name and click on the cheers button and the app will find someone to say cheers and done. That’s basically it. You can share the picture you took with your friends by using the sharing icon too.

Why did I like it?

I like the app because of how simple it is. It gives you a fun thing to do while you’re having a fun time with your friends. It’s not just the idea which is simple, using the app too is very simple and the developers have made the app look great with the simplicity of all the controls and the features.

What I would like to see:

The app would have been better if you could contact the person who you’re sharing the toast with obviously if both people are ok with it.

Update: The developer of this app has informed me that they are planning for a chat feature.

Another feature I would love is the ability to change the colour of the app. For now the major parts of the app is filled with red. But I am not a fan of red, so if there was any options to change the colour it would have been perfect for me. This too would be something the developers should think about.

Final words:

This is an app which you would find fun to use. If you’re a person who looks for heavy duty apps, then this may not be for you. But if you’re a person who enjoy the smallest of things, then you will find this app a nice one to have in your smartphone. The app is available for both Android and iOS.
