Advertisements, Daily Pop, Photo Booth, Social Media

Photo booths, panoramas, and panda-moneum

Hey guys, my name is Brave Tomato and here’s my first update post since… Pelican Rock was revealed to be surprise-released later that day… okay, sorry I haven’t posted much. Being a senior in high school is fun.

Well back to the point of the post. As of Tuesday, the Photo Booth is now available on the iOS Poptropica app! Now, anywhere you can get decent reception in the world, you can put your mobile characters and other well known characters on a screen together making up poses, props, and all sorts of hijinks. Sorry, the update is not available for Amazon and Android users yet, but it will be soon!

In other news, something interesting had been found in the past two Daily Pops:

… And all of a sudden I feel like a bunch of eyes are looking right at me through the computer screen. Don’t worry, the “Olympus has Risen” one is not what you think, evidenced by the next day’s “Bloon” Daily Pop. This feels like it would be an updated version of an Island Tour video or clip or whatever, giving close-ups of island icons and such. There are comparisons to storyboards not too unlike when they were preparing the Shark Tooth animation. (Speaking of which, what happened to Poptropica TV?)

Finally, the Creators are using their social media connections to create a different kind of advertising – for Kung Fu Panda 3. Players are encouraged to go into the Home Island arcade (common room) wearing the Baby Pandas headpiece, and Pop Creator Skinny Moon will be grabbing screenshots and posting them on Poptropica’s social media. Here’s a tweet with several of the pics she took:

You can find more pics like this on Poptropica’s Twitter feed now, and keep an eye there for if/when Skinny Moon announces when she’ll be in the common room! If you’d like to get in on the action, just know she’s been practicing her head-to-head gaming and has so far achieved a 2-star battle ranking.

So that’s just about what’s new in Poptropica! Smile with those cubs for the camera, snap a Photo Booth pic, and get ready to see another new perspective on the world of Poptropica!

BT out!

  1. Wow. I literally just went on the PHB a second after this was posted. Anyway, I’m pretty shocked about the sneak peaks. I didn’t even see them until now. Why? I haven’t been able to get on the computer for a few days, (and having to comment and post on my phone) since I’m on vacation. But, I have to say, I’m excited! And mad that I couldn’t go to the panda thing. And nervous that Poptropica is going to get an update that ruins everything. I truly don’t know what’s going to happen, and the Creators better tell us soon!

  2. Aw, why can’t they ever give the update to the Android first? No fair… When they introduced the name and costume import, it was Amazon first. And now the Photo Booth is iOS first. The next update that is given to a specific device type first better be given to Android first!

    1. Updates have appeared on Android first in the past. It just depends on when they send the update to the app stores and when those updates get approved for the stores.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
