Entertainment Review: Vinnie Jones Wake Up Call

iPhone Applications Review gives their take on the Vinnie Jones Wake Up Call version 1.1 by Branded Research
April 13, 2009

As a big fan of Snatch, and Lock, Stock and two Smoking Barrels, (and TV’s Fly Fish the World), I was all over this app.

Waking up to the dulcet tones of Vinnie just brings a big smile to my face!

This app is plain jane and benefits from that, IMO.

You select the time you want, and you select the wake up call. That’s it.

Of course, for me the hard bit is choosing which wake up call. For a guy who’s acting career is fairly small, Vinnie has a plethora of classic lines. In this app, they are the cleaned up versions (slightly disappointing but still great.)

Once you’ve chosen from the list, you get a full screen video of VJ reciting the bit. These are great as messages to leave on answering machines, hey even on your own office phone!

The one downside is that the app is a bit quiet. Even with the volume cranked up to max, it’s a little light eh?

For that reason, and it’s admitted niche appeal, I’m giving this a 4/5.

vinnie_jones_712700a
The Vinnie Jones Wake Up Call was featured in Gordon Smart’s Bizarre section of TheSun.co.uk today. Here is what they had to say:

“If you struggle to get out of bed in the mornings, VINNIE JONES has the solution.

The movie hardman has come up with his own Wake Up Call application for Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch that sees him screaming one-liners like “Oi, you! Get out of bed” at anyone brave enough to download it.

It’s also got 27 exclusive new videos of Vinnie Jones spouting his popular movie lines such as “It’s been emotional” from hit film Snatch and “I think the word you’re looking for, gentleman, is thank you” from Lock, Stock.

You’ll find it available for download on iTunes for £1.19.

Although knowing you’ve got that to wake up to will make getting to sleep a much harder task. ”

Vinnie Jones Wake Up Call is An Alarm With Attitude

iphoneappreview

“If an angry soccer hooligan can’t get you up, nothing will.” This is what The iPhone App Review website had to say about the Vinnie Jones Wake Up Call when they reviewed our App. On their rating system, the Vinnie Jones Wake Up Call scored 6/10.

*****
Price: $1.99 Score: 6/10

The Vinnie Jones Wake Up Call is for all those mornings when it will take nothing short of a tough-guy yelling abuse to get you out of bed. The app was developed by Branded Research in association with Jones’ himself and features 19 different quotes from his movies and 8 recorded just for iPhone.

The Vinnie Jones Wake Up Call is simple enough to use – choose a wake-up time, select a wake-up quote and you’re set.

There are a few quality lines, like this classic from Snatch,

* “The fact that you’ve got replica written down the side of your guns, and the fact that I’ve got Desert Eagle .50 written down the side of mine, should precipitate your balls into shrinking along with your presence. Now get lost.”

A selection of the others – some more appropriate as a “wake-up” call;

* “Oi Elvis! Two beers!”
* “If you think you’re hard, I’ll show you what hard is mate.”
* “A busy mind is a happy mind”
* “If you wanna be a pro footballer, you’ll never do it smoking like that son.”
* “Get up. It’s a man’s game

The quotes in this app weren’t actually just pulled from their various movies, they were re-recorded with Vinnie himself. If you were planning on using The Vinnie Jones Wake Up Call for said purpose, rather than just comic relief, there is a unique wake up call for each day of the week, e.g

“Oi! It’s Monday morning – GET OUT OF BED!!”

I prefer to be woken up a bit more gently in the morning, but if you need the encouragement and don’t mind the $1.99 price-tag- The Vinnie Jones Wake Up Call isn’t a bad option.

If an angry English soccer hooligan can’t get you up, nothing will.
