"Soundboards have a certain popularity on the App Store, but we always knew that users would become frustrated with the lack of interactivity at some stage," said Will Roberts, founder and CEO of UK based Quapps Interactive. "I began working on ideas to enhance a users experience. Pocket Announcer is the result of not wishing to be your average company putting out the same type of application. The aim is to completely redefine the audio based applications on the App Store and serves to set a standard for others to follow."
Peter has recorded several thousands of words and phrases and all of them have been added into Pocket Announcer. Using the Sentence Maker, users are able to construct unique sentences and have them shouted back by Peter in his famous X-Factor voice immediately from their device. Users are able to save sentences and select from a range of pre-defined ones from over 60 categories:
* 100's of First Names (Male and Female)
* 100's of Surnames
* Showbiz Names and Pop Groups

Additionally, Pocket Announcer offers a great Soundboard featuring more than 100 hilarious and exclusive phrases. The "Ask Peter" section allows users to ask Peter any question they wish for a hilariously enlightening reply, guaranteed to be a hit with friends and family. Prank caller features hundreds of specifically recorded phrases resulting in hilarious prank calling.
