Worked on iPhone 5 and IPad mini but....


It took a lot of trials and errors to scan all 10 cards I got here. Lighting is very important, so was the angle of the cards in front of the camera.

For those who failed to scan any card, try hold them on the palm of your hand and tilt them back and forth. First you need to wait for the app to detect your card, which you would see a frozen shot of the card, then tilt it to make the red card symbol to go green.

Some cards worked right away, but some took 10 attempts to get the results. Not sure if I will get more cards, but I do think the scanning process needs to be simplified more.

A real shame with iPad 2

What a disappointment, I shop at countdown today, get these cards and start telling my 4&5 year old that they were going to see something super special before bedtime - they ate their tea, did their jobs, had a bath...then we sit down together to download the Countdown Dreamworks Heroes app (and introduce them to the magic of augmented reality)..... Then find out it doesn't work on our ipad 2, nor my Samsung S3 when I uploaded it onto that from play store. My kids are left disappointed with the result and quite frankly, me too. Come on Countdown and your app developers....augmented reality is able to be done on iPad 2s with other developers, why not you?



I am a child when it comes to dreamworks so when I found out countdown are selling cards I got really excited and managed to convince my parents to shop there to get the cards. I was dying with excitement when I found out that there was an app so I downloaded it but none of my cards will scan and I have tried in every room of my house every hour for the last two days and even on my mums phone and iPad but none of my cards will scan. I am really sad now my dad said there is no point at shopping at countdown any more so I won't get anymore cards please fix this app as soon as possible!!
