If ever there was a classic teen party game, it's Truth or Dare (okay, okay, granted: and Spin the Bottle, and Seven Minutes in Heaven). Many of us will have fond memories of playing this game in our friends' parents' basements, so let's check out an app that has lots of fun questions and dares in store for you.

Features & Use
Tested on: Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Android version: 4.1.2
Once Truth or Dare has started you will have to download some questions which takes only a few seconds. Then hit the main menu and add players to a round using the contact list. You can also do so manually. Enter players' names and gender, and indicate whether anyone wants to get cosy with anyone else. You can also add your own questions (and limit these to being asked to only one gender if you so wish), or consult the existing questions/dares repertoire using various filters (gender, raunchiness, etc.).
More dares can be purchased or received when you install further apps.
Once all settings have been made to your satisfaction, you can get cracking at a round of Truth or Dare. The first player is selected randomly and can pick either truth or dare, as well as the dirtiness degree of what being asked of them.
Selections can be shared via Facebook, you can take photos and start a countdown. Should you not wish to answer a question a point will be knocked off your score. You can always fold if ever you don't feel comfortable answering a question or doing a dare. Up to five points can be scored per truth/dare.
The game also has a few settings options. For instance, some nasty things can be completely deactivated. Same goes for sound. You can also choose to use only your own questions, and a few more options.
Truth or Dare is a well made app of a classic game, and it makes brings a new fresh flavour to this old favourite. Adding your own questions and dares is fun. The only small drawback is that there isn't a group option, but that's not really a big deal.
Screen & Controls
I'm not a big fan of the Truth or Dare design which strikes me as hodgepodge and old fashioned.
Controls are easy to pick up.
Speed & Stability
Truth or Dare performed well overall: smooth and stabile.
Truth or Dare is available for free.
