    "Have an embarrassing dad who likes to show off his dance moves? For your next family game night, try the Just Dance Now app! Everyone's played this game at some point on a console, and now you can whip it out anytime on your phone. Yes, it makes some of the moves hard to distinguish on a tiny phone screen, but that doesn't stop my family from laughing about dad's newest dance moves!"

    "I downloaded this thinking there would be more interaction between my family. We don't all have mobiles so it was pretty much was worthless for family game night. You also have to have Wi-fi or Bluetooth connection so you will spend time trying to connect devices or use up data just to play a game. It's people looking at their phones in the same room!!! Far from a family game night."

    "Draw Something Classic is so much fun to play. It is good for players of all ages and you can play with your friends. I wish that there was a way to play with multiple players using one phone. This would make the game more exciting, rather than waiting long periods of time for other players to respond. Also, the ads can get pretty overwhelming, making the game difficult to play."

    "Really fun game! The only problem is the movies option. The names of the movies are all in English (obviously), what would be a problem for those who don't leave in an English speaking country. The names of the movies vary from countries."
