Just Dance Now recently launched for iOS and Android, which offers booty-shaking gameplay minus the console. Players use their smartphone as a motion controller, and any screen with browser access as the primary game display. You need to match up with the movements of the dancer on the TV, laptop, or tablet, and are scored based on how closely you mimic the movements. If you're feeling brave, you can share video clips of your sweet, sweet dance moves to social media.
Some of the songs available at launch include LMFAO's Sexy and I Know It, Psy's Gentleman, and I Was Made for Lovin' You by Kiss. We got a look at Just Dance Now at E3, and back then it showed a lot of promise.
What's particularly interesting about Just Dance Now is that it's trying out a freemium subscription model. 5 songs will always be available for free and rotate regularly, but if you want full access to the 50 tracks available at launch, you can get as little as an hour of game time for a buck or shell out $54.99 for a full year's worth. It's a bold move and it's hard to imagine too many people biting, but making this sort of motion-based gameplay accessible to people without something like Xbox's Kinect sensor is a unique proposition.
Head on over to Just Dance Now to start playing in the browser, and grab the game in the App Store at the link below.

It keeps freezing on my iPhone 5s. Anyone having this issue?
First thing I wonder is how many multi-hundred dollar phones are going to be flying into walls and TV's while doing this...
