Brave Utility Available Now: Fire Arrows At Your Computer For Fun
Another Brave-themed iOS app to hit the App Store in the last week (there's already been Temple Run: Brave, and Brave: Storybook Deluxe) is Brave Utility, a new, free iPhone application designed to work with an interactive arrow-fireing Web-game. Once downloaded and installed, iDevice owners (iPhone 3GS and above) can head over to http://brave.com/bravetarget and connect their smart phone to the website through entering a four-digit PIN. Then, once you're all hooked-up, the connected iPhone handset can be used as a remote "to fire arrows from the palm of your hand and into your computer screen," as the app's release notes explain. [caption id="attachment_310928" align="aligncenter" width="516" caption="The game in a computer Internet browser"][/caption] I tried the game out, and found that it works - but isn't great. Disney does note that one's Internet connection can obviously affect gameplay, and my connection hasn't been behaving itself recently. The app is free to download and play, so potential users won't lose anything in taking Brave Utility (and its companion game) for a spin. As mentioned, Brave Utility can be downloaded for free in the App Store.
