Offers no option for manual sync, audio sync doesn't work
You can't use audio sync. You will notice the app doesn't ask permission to access the mic, that is, you guess right, because it doesn't work. So you will be holding your iPad in front of the TV, like an idiot, numerous times, until you give up. I don't understand, rather than fix this, or pull the app from the store, or change the name to just an avenger app, it still misleads people into use it as a second screen experience. Just a search online and I found a review for this app from IGN detailing a similar ordeal and outcome, it doesn't work. I'm really disappointed. I love Marvel, and I have every movie, and I wanted to try this before watching the next avenger film. And if you are asking, no, is not ambient noise, I'm by myself, and I'm using an iPad Air.
I Love It but....
I take away 1 star because this app seriously needs to be updated. Don't get me wrong: I really love this app. Whenever I use it I can't help but think I'm hacking into the S.H.I.E.L.D. Database. However, with the releases of Iron Man 3, Marvel's Agents of Shield, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron & Ant Man; I feel like you should update the entire app to include these new additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You could even throw in little Easter Eggs pertaining to upcoming Marvel movies such as, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, etc. Do this and I'll give back the one star.
This app works flawlessly, and it is RARE TO GET AN APP THAT ACTUALLY "just works"! Beautiful pictures, intriguing information (both behind the scenes information and also information on the fictitious world of "The Avengers"), immersion!
"The Avengers" movie is so epic and masterfully composed - it's brought tears to my eyes! I'm very happy that there's an app like this that goes along with it!
Note that I am running this app on a 3rd generation iPad ("The New iPad") with iOS 6.0.1
