Think You Can Act? New iPhone App Lets You Gain Fame in Instagram-style Social Game By PR.com

Wayne, NJ, December 19, 2012 --(PR.com)-- In advance of the holidays, Fun Factory Apps announces the launch of new iOS mobile app iACTaFOOL where people can play video charades in what founder Hani Shabsigh calls “an Instagram-style game.” Users can record videos of themselves or friends acting words and dance moves such as JELLYFISH, SUPERMODEL, or TWERKIT. Videos can be part of a private game with one other user, posted publicly for the possibility of being featured on the popular page, or posted exclusively to friends a user has approved as followers. A user’s score, or ‘fame’, is based on a number of factors including the number of likes, dislike, and guesses their videos have accumulated.



iACTaFOOL is the brainchild of founder Hani Shabsigh and angel investor Ibrahim Khaddash. Hani has developed the game as a one-man show straight from his parent’s basement. Quitting his job at Deloitte Consulting, he bought roughly 10 programming books, scoured the web for tutorials, took online courses at popular learning sites such as Coursera and Codecademy, and locked himself in his parent’s basement. Nine months after embarking on his learning journey, Hani is launching iACTaFOOL on the Apple’s App Store.
