Over the past few years, studies have shown that many apps are likely to become more successful if users are able to win big by competing against each other or the game – whether they are playing to win real money or ‘game’ money (we’ll let the latest craze of ‘slots’ be the proof of this). Zya, available only on iOS devices, however, has really raised the stakes in the mobile gaming world, as an app that offers users the chance to win up to $10, 000 cash, a recording contract and even the chance to be a part of the influential music tour scene.
Music Mastermind and Chillingo have released this iOS application, which allows users to compete against people from all around the world in one of the biggest mobile competitions ever seen. After downloading the app, contestants use the Zya Music Creation Platform to record their own voice with pop sensations to go in the running to win big with these massive prizes. As mentioned previously, gamers seem to love an app that offers them the chance to show off their skills and win something, but the records from 2013 also proved the mobile gamers like a social aspect added to their experience – something the can share with friends or fellow gamers. In this case, Zya offers users the best of both worlds. Players will receive in-app currency after completing songs, which allows them to purchase new tracks, instruments and other great game features.
Not only does this application allow players to win big, but it also provides them with the perfect platform to show off their musical talent not only to friends and family, but also industry professionals. The game was launched in December of 2013 and after just 3 months it is already proving to be one hell of a game for iOS users – and with a grand prize of $10, 000 plus the chance to be a superstar, this app is sure to be one for the record books.
