Sadly, The Amazing Spider-Man doesn’t seem to be amazing enough for many critics and fans alike. True, not every reboot can be as successful as the last, but you can’t really blame Sony for trying. It’s been years since the last Tobey Maguire film and even I have to admit I was a little sick of the kid. Nevertheless, we’ve got ourselves a new Spidey, so we may as well learn to cope. The first step might be to picking Marvel’s The Amazing Spider-Man Augmented Reality App for your favorite iOS device — mind you, an iPhone 4, 4s, or iPad 2 on up, is required.
The app comes packed with various Spider-Man-themed AR activities, and a host of unlockable interactive animations. It even comes with achievements which can be posted to Twitter or Facebook, should you desire to annoy your friends with that. Best yet, the app is absolutely free, so no need to worry about spending a buck — I can’t believe I just wrote that. The iPad HD version published by Disney, on the other hand, will actually cost you $4.99 and seems to be aimed at a younger audience.
