Another reason to get an iPhone :P And best of all, its FREE and available to all stores. Well, at least I didn’t have any problems installing it from my account. First up, are characters from vol. 1 Kakeru and vol. 2 Jin. Other characters are scheduled for release too.
A quick rundown of the functions. There’s Setting, Shop, Notebook and Site (links to Animate Japan store for you to buy the Shukan Soine CD.)
On the left is the Setting page. Top on the first option to set the alarm to on. The second part is the time to wake up. Third option is to choose the voice for the alarm. Fourth is to repeat or not. Fifth is snooze time and last is vibration.
On the right is the shop. You can purchase additional sweet voices to use as your alarm for 170 Yen per collection. A review pointed out that the paid voices pack do not contain new material, so you might want to take that into consideration when buying.
On each character’s page, if you go into the settings, you can select which voice pattern you want as your alarm voice. There are two for each character, unless you decide to buy more.
Tap on the character to get into their individual pages. Tap on the left button and he’ll talk :D There are a number of voice patterns to enjoy and they sound pretty yummy! Short voice clips are edited from the original Soine CDs. Tap on the right button to go into sleeping mode.
Tap on the left button to get him to whisper more sweet nothings into your ear. On the right is the Notebook which serves like a capture page for you to see what voices you’ve already collected. You can tap on them and listen to them anytime you want. As you can see, there are 35 voice clips to collect for each character. This is a fantastic feature which I wanted Touch my Shitsuji app to have.
Go back to the main page and slide across the screen and you can select Jin to accompany you in bed. So glad they’re releasing this for FREE too…
It is a pretty fun and squeeee-worthy app hehe :D
