Power Citizen: Android Game That UnEntertains


In the spirit of the United States Presidential Election we’re posting our review of Power Citizen. For some reason its classified as a “game” although it is far from fun or entertaining. All Power Citizen does is show 100 flashcards of US “citizen” trivia that you can answer and mark as mastered.

In fact, I want to unevoke the thought that this post has anything to do with today being election day because this application is infinitely boring and not all that useful. I can see how this CONCEPT would be useful but as is… its a rather boring and pointless application save for the possible 2 or 3 people that need/want it to study for some Government class exam.

I think I’m only going to take the time to record and report on applications that I WOULD recommend or that are heavily hyped and I would dissuade against because the tedious process of covering apps like this doesn’t really serve anyone too well and there are just too many new apps on the Android Market.

To bigger and better places we go!

Which reminds me… EVERYBODY GO OUT AND VOTE TODAY!!!!!!!!

  1. Er, what? This is for people studying for their Naturalisation exam — becoming a US Citizen! Not 2 or 3, but 450,000 people take this exam every year! To call this app “pointless” or not really serving anyone too well, seems kind of weird…. Please pay more attention to what the apps do, and cover ones like this that have an enormous, if well-defined, audience!

  2. Perhaps I missed the point completely… but when you download a GAME do you not expect to be playing a GAME? It was categorized as a game… and I stand by my assessment that its not a very fun game at all. Beneficial as an application? Sure… once I realized that I missed the point… but the “point” was missed mostly because of the mis-classification of the application to begin with.
