It’s a great time to be a Batman fan and your Gadget Helpline bloggers are some of the biggest fans you’ll find! So we’re not only excited today to find out that tickets for the epic conclusion to the current Batman movie arc starring Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader went on sale today – but also Nokia, the makers of that super-cool Dark Knight Rises Limited Edition Lumia 900 Windows Phone has released an app exclusively for owners of any of its WP7 smartphones!
The app for gadgets such as the Lumia 800, 710 and recently released 900 is armed with a utility belt of special features including cinema finder with a countdown to the must-see blockbuster movie which is released on July 20th Worldwide. The location map on the Dark Knight app and the entire interface is Windows Phone stylised but also features movie based backgrounds and graphics throughout and really looks the business. For those who want to go a little deeper into the films mythos there’s quick links to IMDB and Flixster bringing you closer action, with film synopsis, with actor and character profiles and more – all this without having to break into the batcave!
There’s a social flavour thrown in with realtime tweets relating to the Dark Knight Rises movie, so you can keep up with all the gossip and fan chat through hashtags and trending direct from Twitter. We don’t even think Bruce Wayne has a Twitter!
The official website for the Finnish mobile co. which is backing the Bat this blockbuster season says “With the Dark Knight Rises app, Nokia has taken the stereotypical film mobile app and injected innovative location-based gaming and fun rewards that make the app a fun experience”
