“Last Seen Online is a project that, on the face of it, may look like a gaming app. In substance, however, it’s much closer to a traditional mystery novel. - Alphr”

Unique & Captivating!!


I’ve never written a review for anything in my entire life. However, I was so impressed with this app that I felt the need to write something. The instagram, news and audio links added so much more to the story than your typical text based app - which there have been quite a few of - but this is the first of its kind! Yes, you do have to pay $2.99 to unlock some of the chat conversations, but I don’t think that’s too bad since the story continues over a 7 day time period. There are many apps/games out there charging much more than that and you’re done with them in a day. With that said, if you like text based apps, or even if this is the first one you’ve come across, download it. You certainly won’t regret it!

Not what I expected... but in a good way!


I normally don’t buy these kinds of apps but this one was done pretty well! Very immersive, including a real Instagram page, videos, and news articles to go along with the story. It does start out kind of slow but by day 3 I was dying to know the rest of the details! I was also pretty surprised by the ending, it totally through me for a loop. I’d say it’s definitely worth spending $3 to unlock all the messages and remove the ads but I don’t think it’s insanely necessary to have those if you can’t afford it. Personally I really enjoyed it and I’d like to see more immersive, real-time chat stories & apps like this in the future!

Slow and Steady


It starts off slow but I found myself checking in a few times a day by Day 3 to see if anyone sent a new text to “Amy’s Phone.” I paid the $2.99 to open all the messages but you don’t need them to get the story. It just helps flesh out the character a bit. My only complaint is how slow the game was in feeding me info and not notifying me when new messages or alerts are available as some other types of games do. I think if I got the ping letting me know I had a new text or message it would have made it that more realistic. Otherwise it was a fun, if slow ride. Looking forward to their next story.
