Twilight Tracker App Review – Is it worth paying for?

(originally posted on my Blogger blog May 8, 2010)

So being an iPhone lover means having a love of apps. This post has been a long time coming on Twi-Mobile.
Where to start? Have to start with the official stuff first right?

iPhone/iPod touch

Official Twilight App from Summit Entertainment

.

Official mobile page at http://www.eclipsethemovie.com/

It’s great that Eclipse has an official app but it’s not free. Read on to see if it’s worth the 99 cents.

By the way, to get the app you can’t go to the Official Eclipse Movie mobile page from your iPhone. It’s in Flash and iPhone doesn’t support Flash. Funny huh? So you’ll have to go to your App store and search for Twilight tracker instead.

You could download it on your desktop Mac or PC through the Official Eclipse Movie page to your iTunes and then sync it with your iPhone.

Here are some screenshots from my iPhone:

So far still no Eclipse cover

News Page

Usually quite up to date

Photo gallery

Photos contain their promotional stills
You can even add the stills as wallpaper right away

Videos

No more Youtube searches

Characters


I love how they are too PC to have Edward or Bella at the top.

They include everyone – small biography of each included
Store

This is linked to the US store only and I couldn’t get it to work from Canada. There were some goodies in here that I had forgotten about from iTunes.
Free podcast Rob Pattinson and Catherine Hardwicke
Download Rob’s playlist from iTunes

Info provided by Twilight Lexicon

Lastly there is a Shouts area that I have not created a profile to participate in. If you have and would like to share your experience let me know.

Verdict? Worth it. Even just to have the official trailers on their from Summit itself. I’m a sucker for anything that even has the word Twilight in it so the 99 cent pricetag didn’t stop me for a second.

Next up, an official Summit podcast that I somehow missed.
