In case you weren’t aware, Bethesda is dropping a pretty hefty title this week: Fallout 4. In preparation for the grand reveal, they have been working tirelessly to hype the new game and one of those #hypebeast efforts includes the new app, Fallout C.H.A.T.
Fallout C.H.A.T. is essentially an image generator that allows users to, well,
Fallout-themed emoji-based images to their friends using basically any app on your phone. The app is fairly straight forward; you open it up and it basically has a built-in keyboard that you can use to make text or insert emoji. Once you have a creation you’re willing to share with the world, you click the “OK” button, pick the app you want to send it with and you’re off to the races. There are also a decent number of GIFs that you can choose from to share with your friends if you so choose.
Ultimately, there’s not a lot to say about this app. It’s definitely a thing and it’s definitely here to make you excited about Fallout 4, which is available starting tomorrow. My biggest criticism is that it came as a standalone app rather than a keyboard app like its iOS counterpart. There was probably some sort of launch restriction that led to this happening, but it’s disappointing either way. It’s especially disappointing if you’re on Marshmallow and find yourself needing to grant permissions to access your internal storage to every new app that you want to send a Fallout C.H.A.T. image with (I ran into this problem on Facebook Messenger).
That said, there are a lot of fun images and GIFs in Fallout C.H.A.T. and I have no problem sharing them with my Fallout-loving friends!
What we liked:
- It has cool GIFs
Where it comes up short:
- Not a proper keyboard app
- Doesn’t play well with permissions sometimes
