BBC Comedy Duo Armstrong & Miller Launch iPhone App

December 16, 2010 in Entertainment (F)

[] Cheltenham, UK - Comic duo Armstrong & Miller have partnered up with iPhone app studio Neon Play with a new app. So fans of the pair can now get their hands on a new iPhone or iPad app that features all the characters, RAF Pilots sound board, an exclusive song and an RAF Pilots parachute game.

Developed by mobile games firm Neon Play, the Armstrong & Miller app is packed full of content complete with voiceover intro and comments by Xander Armstrong and Ben Miller throughout

There are 14 characters on the app including Inappropriate Dentist, Jilted Jim, Brabbins & Fyfe and of course the RAF Pilots. Each has its own image and sounds plus A&M comment. The Pilots soundboard consists of 30 different catchphrases while there is also an exclusive song from Brabbins & Fyfe, especially written and recorded for the app. There is also a sneak peek inside the new Armstrong & Miller book.

The RAF Pilots Parachute Panic game sees pilots bailing out of a shot-up Spitfire plane. The aim is to judge the wind speed and direction, jump from the plane and open the chute at the right time to float safely on to the target and avoid being called a "remtard", boom ting.

The app is Armstrong and Miller's first foray into mobile entertainment and the comedy duo have been more than pleased with the outcome. It is also available in an HD iPad version with an extra game of pairs featuring their characters. The app is published by Littlehampton Book Services, which is a division of Armstrong & Miller's publishers Hachette Book Group.

Xander Armstrong commented, "Just to say how much we enjoyed working with Neon Play and how ruddy delighted we are with the finished app. The pilots game in particular is a stroke of genius and is a socking hit with our fans already. We shall now be heartily recommending Neon Play to all our friends... or maybe keeping quiet so we keep them to ourselves, we're not sure..."

Oli Christie, managing director of Neon Play commented, "The app is great fun and Ben and Xander recorded everything fresh. If you like Armstrong & Miller or want to discover the characters more and have some fun on your iPhone then this is perfect, isn't it."
