K.I.T.T. now on iOS

Post by Armage » Sun Dec 11, 2011 8:44 am

Hi there, I collaborated to the developing of this app and I really would appreciate any feedback about it.
This is the english version of an app that has been a great success here in Italy. It's among the 100 top apps of 2011 and we are very proud of it. Be warned, this is not soundboard, it responds to you, in the best way we could manage so far. We plan on improving it over time as we get more feedback.
I really hope you like it!

Here's an itunes link if you need it:

Android version is definitely something we intend to do, but can't say when. I hope in a couple of months :)

Very impressive app, Armage! Obviously a lot of work and detail went into making this. I especially like the accurate scanning effect when the phone is oriented horizontally, complete with theme music! The voicebox is eerily spot on too and I like how I can press the buttons on the side of it. KITT sure is talkative, although his voice recognition capability seems like it could use some work. I'll be the first to admit though, I have incredibly basic computer programming skills and can't even begin to imagine the complexities involved in making any kind of voice recognition app so I can deal with the difficulties, especially since this is version 1.0. I'm astounded at how many things KITT can say, and in William Daniels' voice no less! For $0.99, this is a complete steal in my opinion, a very high quality app that any diehard fan can't pass up! Keep up the amazing work!

thanks a lot for your appreciation. As any of you here, we are fond of this tv show as well and we did our best to give K.I.T.T. the personality he deserves. And we still are, as we have some ideas on the way.. We know that sometimes he may not sound as smart as he was... we have limitations of many kinds that some of you may imagine, human like AIs are still a dream.
Anyway as I write there's already an update that has been submitted to apple to address some early days issues, as well as improving the graphics of the loading screen. You'll like it! Too bad Apple team is in vacation these days and our update won't be on the store until the first days of january, or later :\
By the way, since we are not native english speakers, I fear that we weren't able to test K.I.T.T. the way we wanted. So if you happen to find a -regular- and inappropriate behaviour (like he doesn't understand something he should), you can report that to me, if you want (or use the form inside the app). It helps a lot.
For instance a reviewer found that he doesn't understand the phrase "hello" as he should, and that is one thing we are addressing in our first update.
Again, thanks... and merry christmas :)

Cool, I saw something like this for Android but my phone budget is limited to using the free stuff.

So now version 1.2 is published (actually it's the 1.1 but we had to fix a small issue with the loading screen which had... disappeared). And we keep thinking about K.I.T.T. almost everyday, figuring out new ways to make him feel more real and smart as possible :)
I have a favor to ask to you who downloaded it, if you don't mind. Good reviews are so important for us so I'd like to ask to any of you who already wrote a review on the appstore, to write it again... so it should appear for the version 1.2 too... it means so much for us. That's all... just refresh the review you already wrote, nothing more :)
4 and 5 stars reviews bring us popularity and that encourage us to continue... thank you
