In December of last year, we highlighted a cool Inception inspired mobile app that uses augmented sound to alter your reality. Well, now Warner Bros. is two more entries into the app world with the full-length feature films involved. Today, WB's Digital Distribution division announced app versions of Nolan's Inception and The Dark Knight. Both of the apps are now available in the iTunes store for use with Apple's iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, and provides a fully-loaded, connected viewing experience that gives consumers the first five minutes of a feature film and a portion of bonus content like games, trivia, soundtracks and more. Read on!
Here's a quick photo of the Inception app looking great on the iPad. More info is beneath the gigantic photo.
Within these apps, the entire feature film can also be unlocked through an in-app purchase, which enables downloading and unlimited streaming, as well as access to the entire array of bonus content available inside the App. Both the app editions of each film are free, while purchasing the films themselves will cost you a little more. Purchasing Inception within the app will cost you $11.99, while The Dark Knight is only $9.99.
Both of the apps are are available in over 30 territories, including some which previously did not have access to films through iTunes including China, Brazil and the Netherlands. While watching the film, fans can also connect with friends by sharing their favorite movie quotes through Facebook and Twitter and watch a feed of social networking chatter directly related to the movie in real-time. So if you don't have digital copies of the film and want to check out everything you can about each of them, these apps are for you. Have at ’em!

That's unnecessary spending to me... I can do that and more on my laptop. Thanks for the report though.

Just "looking great" isn't enough... unless you're a iFool.

well, "iFool"s, as you call them, are apparently stupid enough to justify Apple wanting to greedily suck up app subscription fees, i'm sure they'll slobber all over this crap.
