Archive is useless on a phone
I have loved this app even though it has been buggy and prone to fits. Some thing just will never load and the instruction are not very clear. Sometimes cover activate content sometimes they don't, which is fine but they all seem to have the AR symbol on them.
My major complaint is the archive now. I like the concept and I get why you probably need it but it is un searchable on my phone. Comics only a2 issues old don't appear towards the top only to crowns out by comics years old that are I can only assume new out in trades. Again this would not be a problem if I could just do a quick search on a title and be done. I searched for Axis and Amazing Spider- man 2 huge titles right now and I can't seem to get anything. Even if something should show up it seem to be invisible on my screen. For such a big multimedia company you would think that your website would rock but it a quite the opposite . I go everywhere except for Marvel. Com for my marvel info because your site is so un-user friendly. Way overly complicated to many pop up adds and I can never get to the info I want quickly or you don't even have the info I want. Please get it together you must have a enough money to revamp this thing and help the fans out. Start with making it more phone friendly and especially fix the AR archive.
What's the point of this app if it only works for three weeks? I bought all the issues of Original Sin as they came out so that I could enjoy them all at once, and now that I've decided to read them just two months later you block the DLC because I didn't play at launch? You're just as bad as EA. Maybe if I could still do the camera thing on your website I wouldn't mind, but I'm not going to be cheated out of an app as well as having to awkwardly hold a comic book up to light while keeping my sweaty hand steady as I search for the perfect nonsense angle to activate a 34 second video clip.
Also, it's kind of dumb that you can't play music while the app is open, at least wait until I load a video (which I couldn't do.)
And Apple, why is this review writing font so huge? It's a stark contrast from the small text everywhere else. Do you think only old people write reviews or something? You get 1 star too.
No, but I totally remember doing the same thing (waiting a few months) with the first two arcs of Uncanny Avengers, so why can't I now? You've disappointed me Marvel, and I was all ready to enjoy an event too...
Some nice behind the scenes bits
Doesn't work on the iPhone 5 at all. On my retina iPad mini, it works great. It took me a while to realize the app wasn't freezing, you have to double-tap the screen after the video plays to get back to scanning the comic. Also video playback controls are desperately needed.
As for content, I like the interviews with creators, the 3D battle between Cap and Wolverine (AvX) was cool, but not the WWE Diva's take on Scott & Emma or the sketches getting inked and colored. The more scripted stuff can be pretty lame too.
