Unlike a lot of reviews, I'm going to try and give some actual information. First off, there's not a lot to do. The pensieve function seems to be just a bunch of trailers. The Daily Prophet part should really be renamed as the Wanted Poster. You take 4 pics on your iphone and those series of pics appear in a pseudo-animated version of a wanted poster. You can type your name but that's about the extent of options. You can only have 1 set of photos which is a pretty poor show. The Spells option is just a link to a trailer for another app (paid), which doesnt actually tell you anything about the app. In short, it's advertising disguised as a pretty lame app, but at least it's free (at the time of this review). One word summary: meh.
I don't know about anyone else, but I consider this app a waste of time. I'm not really good with technology, so it is quite possible I did something wrong, but I don't like it. At first I enjoyed it, but after awhile I was tired of the playing the same things over and over. Soon after I found that when I pressed the Pensive I could hear the video, but not see it!! To make this app better they should include HP news or trivia games, or have a part where you can read the 6th book and you definitely need to check the Pensive thing. Please fix this, for the love of HP!!!
Fun app, does what it says it will.
This app although not extensive does most everything that it says it will in the description. I enjoy watching the trailers, and had fun making my photos for the Daily Profit & wanted poster. The only thing that didn't work was the typing editor for the daily profit (I suspect it was supposed to allow me to add my name somewhere as the Death-eater). Other than that it did all it said it would.
