Review:

This December the first installment of the Hobbit movie hits the theaters. As a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy movies  and of course the books, I cannot wait for the movie.  I was excited to find this new app the other day in the App Store. If you are a big Lord of the Rings fan, you will want to download this app.

This is not a game but a cool app about the upcoming movies.  From the iTunes page:

Explore Middle-Earth and experience the epic adventure of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” with the official iOS app. Learn about Bilbo Baggins’ quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor and the band of thirteen dwarves that join him and Gandalf the Grey as they embark across the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain through exclusive artwork, interactive character galleries, and production videos presented by director Peter Jackson.

The app has 4 sections, Index, Explore Middle-Earth, The Scroll, and Social. Social is simply an area where you can log into Twitter and Facebook to share items.  The Scroll is a long series of images from the movie stitched together.

Explore Middle-Earth section is a cool parchment map of Middle Earth that you can zoom in and out and scroll around. One the map is a series of button, when you click on one, it will pull up a different character or location.

The main section of the app is the Index. Within the Index, you can watch featured videos, access a number of different downloadable images, and learn more about the film.  There are some behind the scene videos also. There is also a section where you can view each of the main characters and learn more about them. And finally there is a neat section that is a 360 degree view of Hobbiton and Bags End.

Over the app is nicely put together and really will wet your whistle for the upcoming movie. If you are a fan of Lord of the Rings, just download the app. Now I am not sure about this, but I would assume (and hope) that more content will be added over the coming months to keep us Lord of the Rings fans in the know. We can only hope.
