App Icon Contest!

This contest is currently closed.

Attention all graphic designers and artists. The time has come.

I am happy to announce the first ever contest on this blog!

Here’s the deal. I’m creating an app using an Android app platform. Not a big deal. With the app, you’ll be taken to a page with eight different Poptropica blogs. Just click on the blog and be taken to the site! There will also be a Reader Mode. I call it, Just Poptropica® Blogs.

As for the contest, here are the rules:

#1: All submissions must be 512×512 pixels, or else they will be disqualified.

#2: Your work must be original. No stealing, borrowing, or copying of any kind, or else the submission will be disqualified.

#3: All submissions must be sent to my email, which is

#4: Has to be related to the app. A dragon wouldn’t make sense for a shortcut app, would it? Maybe a pic of a book with Poptropica on it or a Poptropican squished inside of the app design would be cool. As long as it’s related, be creative! For example, the original Poptropica Mobile App icon is notable and related.


#5: The app icon must be submitted by February 27, 2016, the day after Valentine’s Day. The winner will be announced on February 17. The winner will have their app icon official, copyrighted, and have their Poptropican’s name in a page of my PopTRAPica fanfiction. All other submissions will be featured in a blog post.

Good luck my brave Poptropicans! You’re my only hope! Wait a second…

Week of I.H: Quick Post: The Concept of I.H’s Name

*hacker voice* I’m in.

The concept of the name Incognito Horror was to be original and scary. So far, he’s just a dashing salesman that created PopTRAPica. His name had to be two words like all Poptropicans (ex: Mad Apper, Golden Hero, Dr. Hare) but had to be a bit “scary” (ex: Black Widow).

Might as well put Horror in the name, then? Now, something that make people wonder. Incognito works. Horror Incognito is taken, so how about the other way around?

That’s all for now!

Quick Post: Blog Change

Hey everybody! I changed my blog theme…again. I’m experimenting a bit. I’m trying to get the sidebar to be more visible. Well, except on phones, where the footer is the sidebar. Well, that’s it! Oh wait!

My next post will be on Friday. Think Incognito. Now think Horror. Now think Poptropica Fan Fiction. Now think about news about Poptropica Fan Fiction.

Interview: Hanging with the Meme President (UiPE)

Mad Apper in. Hey Poptropicans! Enjoying 2016 so far?

If you don’t recall, I have many segments here on The Poptropica App Blog. One of them is interviews. Last time I interviewed The Mighty Game-ini*, excuse me, Mighty Gamer. For this post, I’ll be lazy and paste exactly what he answered instead of summarizing it. Partially because one of the answers is very interesting.

This time, I’m interviewing The Memer Whose Name Must Never Be Said. Actually, it’s the Meme King. No wait, Meme President.  No, Ultimate iPad Expert. Er…UiPE. I’ll just stick with Paul. Anyway, Whats-Your-Name, for this post, the spotlight’s on you!
