iROB - Would you use it?

Just the thought of something called "iROB" makes me laugh. But anyway, so over the next few months or so (few being 3 to 12) a RoB iPhone/IPod Touch/iPad app will be developed. I just want to get a feel for how many people would be interested.

FREE - iRoB Lite (Can do  some of the basic in game activities from your iDevice)
$0.99(£0.59) -iRoB Full (All basic in game features & access to  free promocodes to be used by iROB Full users only).

There could also be an option to buy VIP Days/Plasma right from your iTunes account (Which means iTunes prepaid cards could be another way to get VIP/Plasma). That is just a maybe though. There would also be the possibility of moving into the android market and making an app for the android phones too.

Either comment this blog or discuss it in this forum thread.


Okay onto the next thing, the new servers are up, most of the problems have been ironed out as far as we can see, but if you are getting any errors, or still cannot access RoB please email me @ reignofblood.net@gmail.com.

Thanks & Enjoy!
Ash

Its a great idear Ash! I would deffently use it

Interesting. I'd try it. =)

Arcane Darklance said...

This seems like your trying to branch out a bit to quickly ash, Maybe you shouldn't look into this until we have more under our belts with this. Personally i wouldn't use this. But it is a good idea. Just probably not for this time

Rue Rue said...

I agree with it...I would use it.

Legion White Tiger said...

I'm sure some would but it's not for me. Guess it depends on how many takers you get and whether they follow-up. :)

DarkAsh said...

It wont be made for probably another 12 months. I'm looking to the future... I know i'd love to have a RoB app to check on stuff whilst i'm not at home.

Anonymous said...

ill buy it cause im always on my iPod touch ( :

Arcane Darklance said...

This is true, But remember. When looking into the future, not all things will turn out good. Lol But i know i spend a lot of time on my Ipod touch, So i would probably get it just to check my BLs. Many people would use it so i guess i'm on either side. so this can go either way. Many people use their Ipods' every day and not everyone gets on the comp so its a good idea

Riz said...

Yes to IROB. It would open up ROB to new audience.

Ithilwen said...

I'd use it if you got it for the android market. I have a G1 not an iphone.

Kia said...

I would use it Ash, sounds like a great idea.

Anonymous said...

i would use it but i don't have an iphone or ipad but would you also be able to develop an application for the andriod phones such as the HTC G2?

leone of Sorrow said...

sounds good. even though it's pretty easy to just use safari for rob, not having to scroll around the page or zoom in to be able to click on something would actually be worth it in my eyes. for that price i'd even buy the full version

I would use it

I have an ipod touch. Do it!!!! Please do it! I'm addicted to this game already, now I would be able to play on the go.

NemesisAlien said...

I use nokia N97, not much use to me...

prettyhatemachine said...

I would use it

Anonymous said...

Most definately will use it i have an iphone and using RoB on safari is not that easy and takes longer to do normal things

Anonymous said...

Sweet!! would be sweeter if i had an ipod or phone... haha maybe ill invest in one :P

I would use it. However sadly, with iTunes cards in Canada you cannot purchase Apps. However if the Lite version is good enough, I might consider asking for it VIA Credit Card. It's a good idea.

Complete waste of effort and time. Apple will is being hurt by the iPad and its failures to wow the industry. I would wait until either Apple got its shit together or find another medium to use. Apple and the I-products are not the juggernauts they use to be.

Anonymous said...

Me Thinks there are too many upgrades and specials going on with ROB for there to be an ipod app....

Anonymous said...

I'd use it if I had the either the Ipod Touch or Iphone. I don't though (lubs her 3 year phone that hasn't broke yet) but it 12 months I might have something similar.

I would use it, I travel alot and I would be able to log on more frequently on the iphone. Sounds good

SlayerXIII_Boudiccas_Line said...

None of the "smart phones" (is that an oxymoron??? lol) here. I suppose if I did have one (and will in future) that I might use it. As you said ... it's nice to be able to do basic things whilst one is away from the home 'puter. :D Looking to the future is a good idea too Ash! *grins*

StarLitFire18 said...

Um I can already do this on my Touch by opening up a webpage...

....Christina.... said...

I dont have any of those but I can tell you that its a great idea because not everyone has full time access to computers or dont really use them makes sense to add something new to the table so you can have an even bigger audiance :)

Anonymous said...

I would use it however stop being so greedy with the money part it should be a free app. For one it would get more people interested in the game and 2 make it so much easier to be able to log on and not have to depend on a browser on the phone. Just wanted to let everyone know that I downloaded BING for the iPhone a free app lol and it works much better for ROB than safari

IPhone is for [loser]'s Droid FTW

DarkAsh said...

@Anonymous because getting an iPhone app made isn't free.

Anonymous said...

Don't have an iphone, though i like the news on the itunes prepaid card's. It will make it a lot easyer for me to buy plazma:-)

Me, No, Like.....i dont have an iphone, and never will...well i might....but not any time soon, so now, i don't like it

i would def use it. will it be for other phones that use apps? other than Iphone? my phone has the Android Market on it. anyways if it makes it way there it will most def be on my phone!

Anonymous said...

I don't have an ipod, nor do I plan on getting one. This idea is not for me.

ArcAngel said...

Not so keen on the ipod route, but developing one that could be used on the android phones would definitely spark my interest.

Jade_dragon said...

Have no use of, but thanks for considering the idea.

jenn.mcgrogan said...

I think its a great idea! :) I don't have one...YET...lol. So the fact that in 12 months possibly it coming, I could very well have one myself, and would gladly love to be able to check on things when I am out and about. Especially when you are sitting and waiting somewhere:P
Love this game and totally support it and the futer of it.

Vladimir Volodka Macabre said...

Lol, I'd Definitely Use It. I Know A Number of People On RoB That Play RoB On there IPod, Or Such as It is. This App would Just make it easier For them o.o

Dymitri D. Noqturnus said...

I've had a smart phone, G1 to be exact, since october and have been successfully accessing the site without hitch or problem. I don't understand what others are saying, but I doubt there would be any difference. Only things I can't access is the wix, xats, and music players on profiles. Chat works fine, battling, training, etc. all work just fine. So, unless that changes, I feel that there is no need...though I guess it'd be cool to have an app. I would just hate for you to waste money without a justifiable means.

Anonymous said...

would NOT use it. sorry guy

Samie said...

Alright, Ash. You don't have to name it something like iRoB, please don't for god sakes. We have more dignity than that :P. Why not simply Reign of Blood? :P

Aurora Choiseul said...

I love the idea. I can't buy plasma/VIP, but I buy iTunes giftcards now and then. So I would definitely try that out!

great idea

No.

hell to the yeah motherfucker i woulg deffinately use it.....

Seuraaja said...

Oh god, one more thing encouraging people to walk around glued to their accursed iphones 24/7... I do not approve!!

That said, a lot of the aforementioned iphone/ipod junkies would probably use it, so I guess it would technically be a success.

kismet said...

sorry no.go....

Anonymous said...

Oh god yes.

Anonymous said...

this makes me think that you need to add a feature to the game where you can rob people of their money

Anonymous said...

Sound like a good idea Ash, a lot of web sites have their own apps on phone. So why not a game site.. Now with some phone companies, who has html on them.. they can already gain access to the web site. So i am not quite sure what your trying to do.. i will have to hear more about before i give my thoughts about it..

Anonymous said...

I think it is a great idea ash. Would love to be able to check things from my portable device!

Elon said...

omg i would so use this all the time bc i always have my iphone but dont always bring my laptop everywhere

Isabella Night said...

I love the idea. Would the app be usable only through the Iphone/Ipod or will you make usable via other smart phones like the Palm Pre? I know I wouldn't mind having rob on my Pre

Argosax said...

it's a good idea i log on from my smart phone at times but others that can't would really be happy.

Anonymous said...

I most definately would use it on my ipod. Especially the buying VIP using my itunes account. Being 17 without a credit card is hard. Makes it hard to get VIP and Plasma. Itunes cards are easy for me to get though. I would definately use the app when I get my new itouch.

having experienced the iphone game app from zynga,unless the app can actually interact with other players the same way as with the original game......i'd say no... epic fail.

Anonymous said...

That is a brilliant idea, I would use it. Also getting to buy plasma and VIP from Itunes would be a good idea as well if it could be figured out.

Anonymous said...

Ah.... if only I had a mobile device capable of using it. It's an awesome idea. If I were to get an iphone or android, I would totally buy the app.

Anonymous said...

If I had an iPhone or iTouch this would be helpful for when I'm traveling and have no access to a comp for a good month or two. I really like the idea of being able to use iTunes to buy things. I think this would benefit current players a lot and help to advertise the game to others.

SexyHamSandwich said...

Hell yeh i'd use it ;)

Anonymous said...

thats what ive been waiting for!!! im using rob on my cell and it sucks...and i was just looking for a app awhile ago so yea great idea x]

Anonymous said...

I'd use it. I am mostly on, and probably a few other people, an itouch, and try to go on ROB but it hard sometimes. An app would be a great idea .

Blutsinneslust said...

I'd use it too, sounds like you've got a winning idea for the public here Ash. Can't wait.

Anonymous said...

I dont know. How many ROB users would buy it. Would it justify the cost? How many users have an iphone or touch. It is a good idea for on the go ppl but it could end up costing you more money then it would justify to do it. I can pull up ROB on my Treo straight from the internet.

Anonymous said...

I would use it. That is for certain.

Anonymous said...

i would use it just because the name is hilarious

Anonymous said...

I love the idea! More ways to acess RoB plus the ability to purchase VIP/Plasma from iTunes would be awesome!

Anonymous said...

Great idea, both iROB and the easy-access blog archive. Thanks Ash.

Anonymous said...

Sorry, I see no use for it, since I adamantly refuse to make Apple and Steve Jobs more money...not for the prices they charge for less then stellar products/services. (Long story, ut they refused to stand behind a product that was defective.) But good luck on the project and to any who would use it.

Skully said...

Even though it's not 100% perfect Safari is the only mobile browser that I've come across yet, that everything on RoB actually works... albeit in some cases it's a bit kludgy. So if an app is developed, it would have to be substantially better than the performance I already get from RoB on the browser I have on my ipod touch for free. Although I have to say, even if it was a lot better, I doubt I'd actually pay for it... even if it is only a buck. Now something for the blackberry... which I use in many more places than my ipod might catch my attention.

Its sounds amazing! I wish I had a phone or Ipod that had such a capability.

hell yeah i would use it... i have an ipod touch and i would love to be able to use itunes to pay for my VIP

Oh yeah, love it! It would make using ROB to slack off in class even easier! <3

Anonymous said...

I'm definitely gonna use it!!

Anonymous said...

Hell no. Im not desperate to play Rob.pfft

Anonymous said...

That is ridiculous that you would have promo's available only to the ones who pay you to use your irob.

Agin this is the reason that you dont have more players, reguardless of how many you do have now.

And the reason more players don't rebuy the V.I.P.

Anonymous said...

yep will use it on my itouch

Belladonna Darkstar said...

I think it a great idea. Apple products are dominating the technological world. I think you would be surprised at how many would use. I'm on board. Can't wait.
