Marvel upgrades app with adaptive audio tracks
Marvel comics group is reportedly living up to its promise by upgrading its subscription app with a long-promised smart soundtrack and DVD-style video commentary.
The American comic publishing company is starting with the popular story Captain AmericaL The Winter Soldier by adding "adaptive audio" to some of its digital comics.
According to Cnet, the new version of Marvel Unlimited looks a lot like the old version, though it comes with three important changes: transitions from one panel to the next are faster and smoother, there's now adaptive audio, and Marvel AR's DVD-style extras are now included in its digital comics for the first time.
Kristin Vincent, Marvel's vice president of digital products, said that the goal was to make digital comics feel more digital without losing their essential nature, Cnet reported.
Referring to last year's adaptive audio announcement by Marvel at SXSW, Vincent said that the Marvel knew it had something conceptually, but weren't sure how it was going to work with comics.
