Harry Potter: Spells iPhone/iPod touch app now available

Last week, we told you about a new Harry Potter: Spells app that would be released for iPhone/iPod touch customers.

Thanks to Michael, we've learned that the app is now available in the iTunes store! It can be purchased for $4.99 and features the ability to turn your iPhone/iPod touch into a wand! You can duel your friends, learn spells, and a lot more. Visit the website for the app at this link.

If you get the app, let us know what you think in the comments!

MY MINI REVIEW: At best, this app is very difficult to use. The app requires a very specific movement for each spell. I failed 30 – 40 times before I passed each one (these include the very first spells you learn where you just have to move your phone left or right).

To perform a spell, you must put your thumb on the screen, make the physical movement, and remove your thumb. Apparently you need perfect timing, orders, and physical motion to be successful.

The app would repeatedly say to me “Too fast”, “Too slow”, or “Try again”. I can't believe how difficult it is to successfully cast just one. Maybe I'm just a bad wizard?

Don't buy the app unless you have a lot of patience and a strong arm.
