Got the app today and previously preordered the console device. App on my iPhone is fantastic. A couple of things I noticed:

1. For the tutorial video, between 5 minute and six minute mark, there's no audio. It's the portion describing the cal******r method.

2. Also cannot do anything with post it note selfie or lottery selfie routines...cannot take selfie, nothing seems to work, as though they are locked..
Are those effects unavailable before receiving the console device? Or is my app defective? Or do I have something set wrong?

Looks promising, I plunged and ordered. Got a question about the Polaroid Zink. I went on YouTube to see how it works, thereís printing noise, how do you minimize it?

Review of ďThe ConsoleĒ

The App
After two updates, the app works now. Some more testing would have been nice, before releasing it. It would be nice, to have more routines in the future. For some routines, it would be enough to input two letters or 3 numbers, to keep the input time short. All in all, the app works as promised.

The Device/Hardware
The device is small. It can be palmed easily. Iím not happy with the build quality. It seems that the development has stopped at 80% or so. The way of pushing the buttons is too long and the pressing is too hard/inaccurate. I would have preferred a click as feedback. On half of the device, the circuit board is open and not protected. I think, that sweat and humidity arenít the best for it. The edges of the circuit board are very rough and I had to file them down. There is no charging cable included. The input works, but due to the inaccurate buttons, you are never really sure, if you had pressed enough or not.

Conclusion
Overall, the device and the app are okay. Not more. I was hoping for more. I would have rather spent another US$ 50 for a finished product with precise buttons and a protected board.

Thanks for the review doktorp. I donít like the idea of exposed circuit boards. Will request a refund

I have to agree the device looks like something that could be knocked up for wayyy less than £100.
The app does its purpose for me but no way would I pay for the remote.

As I mentioned earlier the cheap bluetooth remote I got for Inject works fine.

Read the thread and checked the website, but still can't find the answer - does Console work only in English?

How about languages like German, Danish, Swedish and others with their special extra letters?

If you have questions about the device or other effects, I would recommend contacting Mark. He has answered every email Iíve sent to him. He seems to have more time to answer questions about the effect than the ones who created the app. Minus G. Heís answered the questions Iíve asked. My review should be coming shortly after the weekend.

Totally agree with Doktorp for nearly a hundred quid surely a more professional device could have been supplied WTF ?? A dodgy looking circuit board half covered in heat shrink insulation with unresponsive buttons.

I am here to make your lives easier...the app is worth 50 bucks...I bought the app in the google play store...I do not own the actual console device. However I was able to hook up a regular bluetooth keyboard...and I was able to type words & numbers without having to press same button up to 4 times...the only downside is that you would probably need a helper to do so. They make small keyboards but you'd have to be a better typist than I. Ellusionist will probably have this post removed, but I DO recommend the app.
