LottoFetch Works Great for a Narrow Audience

How does one rate an app?  If it is on functionality, LottoFetch would get a high score.  This app does exactly what it says it will do.  LottoFetch gives you the last seven lottery results for Mega Millions, California lotteries and Texas lotteries.

If I were to rate LottoFetch on usefulness, I would say that if you live in California or Texas and you play the lottery regularly, then LottoFetch is pretty useful. In terms of ease of use, LottoFetch is intuitive and gives you lotto numbers at your fingertips.

If you are like me and you live in New York (or one of the other 48 states that are not California or Texas) and only play Mega Millions once every couple of months, LottoFetch is not going to seem like a meaningful app.  Since Mega Millions is only played in 12 states, that leaves 38 states that LottoFetch simply does not apply to. If other states collaborated with 212 Technologies to expand LottoFetch, the app would appeal to a much wider audience.

I try to remain open when rating apps like LottoFetch. Just because I don’t play the lottery regularly does not mean that LottoFetch is a not a good app. There is a place for apps like LottoFetch and iBeer. (And yes, full disclosure, I do have iBeer on my iPhone.)

So, while I can easily to look up the numbers the rare instances that I play the lottery, LottFetch might be useful for more than occasional gamblers.  If you play Mega Millions or the California/Texas lotteries regularly, go for it.  What’s another dollar?  LottoFetch is convenient and functional, and you will find out immediately if you can purchase that house by the seaside that you always wanted.
