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.

Use Language Like That Again Son…

This is a scene from Guy Ritchie’s Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels Staring Vinnie Jones. We used this scene as inspiration for one of the Vinnie Jones Wake Up Calls on the iPhone application.
