For many, the Super Bowl is a time to gather around the tube in anticipation of watching the year’s two best teams go head to head. For others, it’s a time to checkout the latest of what has become a tradition itself: the Super Bowl Ads. Now thanks to AClass Apps, we are able to enjoy the collection of Super Bowl ads from the past right on our TouchPads, and soon across a variety of other devices thanks to the power of Enyo! At the time of this writing Super Ads XL has already made its way into the Google Chrome web store. For this review, we are focusing on the TouchPad app.
The setup could not be easier as there is nothing to it. Simply download the app, open it, choose your ad, and enjoy. As soon as the app is installed you are instantly able to checkout and watch the ads that are available from a number of Super Bowl games.
The UI for the app makes use of the normal sliding panels we all know and love on the TouchPad and other Enyo apps. Each pane makes use of a styled background that is representative of a football field. The left pane displays the groups of ads, sorted by games, along with an option to view your favorite ads. After selecting a game, the list of ads are displayed on the right pane where you can click to view the ad or click the large star to make it one of your favorites. Each video is displayed in a popup window that houses an embedded YouTube player. Clicking the button on the bottom right corner brings up the full-screen mode just like any other YouTube video. Exiting the full-screen mode is done by clicking the center home button. The only feature I felt was missing was a way to share ads via email or other social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Luckily, a share feature is said to be included in a future release. We are also told there are plans to include a Villo chat room in the app, which should round off the social side of the app in coming updates.
This app is perfect for people who enjoy the Super Bowl ads, more than the game itself. It’s a fun way to pass some time, and the ability to look back at past videos is great. There were many great ones that I simply forgot about. Currently, the app is limited to the past four years of ads, however we are told that more ads will continue to be added as they are found and the app is updated.
