Love it, but some bugs
I was pleasantly surprised that this app actually has functions (alarm, etc.) rather than being a click-and-listen gimmick -- though I will admit to somewhat embarrassing noises of glee when I was lightly scolded for pressing buttons again and again. I'm enjoying it a lot!
Bugs: I've been having issues with volume control. I currently have this installed on my iPad mini, so I'm not sure if it's a compatibility issue, but it should be noted. Changing the volume while JARVIS is speaking causes the audio to cut out, though the next click/clip will play again. Generally, I'm changing the volume when I /can't/ hear, so this is a little frustrating. Also, the audio is rather quiet in general, /except/ when the app opens and when I swipe to change apps (and might possibly occur under other circumstances as well).
Also, though it will not affect you if you are purchasing from this store, but international versions of this (as my Japanese friends were rather crestfallen to learn) do /not/ include Paul Bettany's voice. I hope the option to install the original version is made available to them soon.
Ok, so I absolutely LOVE this app. I enjoy being able to talk to my own JARVIS. One thing I wish to be added though, is the ability to do more complex tasks. I do like the commands he has, but I think it would be even better if he were to work like Siri. For example, you could have him search something on the Internet for you, or turn on a song in your music. Basically, it would be better if it could work with out of app stuff. But if this is something that can't happen, that's completely fine. I just think it would be more useful this way. I also think it would be good to be able to have simple conversations with him. Just incase you want to be sassy like Iron Man. ;) Also, one more thing, for the messages, I think it should be more than messages about the app. It should have messages about upcoming Marvel events to keep all the fans up to date.
Other then that, keep up the good work. I really really like this app. :D
This is a intriguing application that has the potential to be better than any other film series app due to the daily role JARVIS could play in a user's life. The design is just what a fan of Iron Man would expect with a layering of the menu and options in a futuristic OS background. The voice of JARVIS sounds to me a good approximation of Paul Bettany from the movies so the authentication is successful here. The app works as of now as a limited but fun daily assistant where users can ask about such things as the time of day and weather. Hopefully more will be added in a future update. Navigation around the app couldn't be simpler and the process of actions by the voice is quick with no detectable lag. This application also does things a normal film series app would do such as includes and enhances ties to the movies it represents and is associated with. For example users can unlock many Iron Man tech suits and use JARVIS as a second screen to the Iron Man 3 Blu Ray disc. This application is a worthwhile download to fans of Iron Man and the Marvel Universe in general.
