Iron Man 3 is hitting on September 24th, and what would Iron Man be without Jarvis, or maybe a Jarvis App, doing the heavy lifting in the background? And, what would a huge home video release be without some gimmicks that hope to get you jazzed up for it?
The App actually offers a fair amount to play with, but the sell is really the” second screen” abilities that give you control over the Blu-Ray (once you can get it), and unlock some special treats. By the way, that includes voice control.
You also get the opportunity to have Jarvis take over a variety of ringtones on your iPhone, although this comes by way of having to email yourself through the App, and then go through some shuffling with iTunes, but still, they’re rather cool.
The App also has some “personal assistant” features, like telling you the weather, setting alarms and reminders, and other snazzy things that, let’s face it, you aren’t at all likely to use.
On the other hand, having a Jarvis App is its own reward, and if you’re a fan of Iron Man (sure, I have the ringtone on my phone), there’s no reason to miss a free tie-in.
Create customized alarms to wake you in the morning, download ringtones, check the weather, post to Facebook and more! Sync the app to your Blu-ray™ player to unlock hidden files and suits embedded throughout the disc, and experience the first-ever voice controlled Blu-ray!
In Marvel’s “Iron Man” series, JARVIS is Tony Stark’s artificially intelligent computer system and serves a multitude of functions. JARVIS is programmed to speak with a male British accent and is voiced in Marvel’s “Iron Man” and “The Avengers” series by actor Paul Bettany (“A Beautiful Mind,” “The Da Vinci Code”).
