Many people who see the Akinator working for the first time, he doesn’t believe what he does. He is able to guess the celebrity that a person is thinking, just by asking a few questions. Well known on his website, now he gets the screens of iPhone and iPod touch through its own application.
Obviously there is no magic or extraordinary fact in the system behind Akinator, just a huge database of all kinds of celebrities from several countries (including Brazil), added to a little bit of statistics and logic. Even so, it is guaranteed fun at friends’ wheels or at bar tables.
Although the application is not made by Brazilians, it is all in Portuguese. You first think of a famous personality and then begin to answer the questions that the genius asks you. For each one you can answer Yes, no, probably yes, probably not or do not know. It is important that you respond accurately to all of them, assuming you don’t know if there is any doubt.
Even knowing that there is logic behind the trick, it is impossible not to be impressed by the variety of responses. In 15 attempts, he made no mistake, hitting Robinho, Lula, Calvin (from Haroldo), José Serra and even Yeda Crusius. It can be real or fictional characters, as well as living or already dead.
Unique, however, for those who do not have unlimited data plan, is that they need an internet connection to access their gigantic database. But it works without limit on Wi-Fi.
It was practically not released in Brazil before this article, but it is already 17th in the list of best sellers in the Brazilian store, with great reviews from those who bought it.
Guaranteed success among friends and family. Very recommended! ?
