Please, no English subtitle on the ‘talk mode’! Please! It will KILL the app’s esthetics and beauty! I want to see the characters clean image, not a whole bunch of letters (but if there’s a on/off mode, then it would be a perfect world :p )
After all, the characters are speaking in Japanese. Of course, I know it would be nice for you to understand what they’re saying, but please don’t ruin the feedback rating simply because you don’t understand how to use it.
I’ll try my best to translate (when I have time) whatever it is that you’re having trouble understanding.
Assuming that you are reading this post because you need help using this app
週刊添い寝CD – Sleepy-Time Boyfriend iPhone App (the characters pix look great on iPad too, click 2X for larger size in iPad)
Let’s cut down through the chase, assuming you already know about the Shuukan Soine CD Series… (google it if you don’t)
First, the main page of the app (this image is from the 6th character)
1. Alarm clock settings
2. this is the In-App purchase page, where you buy your favorite character’s voices, if you’re not satisfied with the free ones. It’s $1.99 each, and the dev is already nice enough to use English to describe (as of 2012.01.27). It used to be in Japanese. (‘Usually, set1 are sweet talks, and set2 are more charming/seductive talks). I say, buy them all (even if you already got the CDs) :p
3. A record of what the character of choice (the character’s page that you are at the moment) has said.
4. Official page (guess what, it’s not really, ‘official’, but rather the online shopping page from Animate. ‘Buy the CDs if you love it so much that the app ain’t enough’ — type of thing 😀
OK, next, the Alarm setting:
Now, when you are at the types of alarm setting, this is what you see and can make your choices (I updated this part 2/14/12):
Once you’ve chosen which character you want to set (v1-v7 so far), you are presented with 2 (free) or 4 (2 more that came with the paid extra) choices of voice alarm settings to wake you up. You can review your choice by pressing the review 視聴 to listen what you’ve chosen.
[[[ NOTE: For the alarm to work, after you’ve set the time, you must turn the iPhone’s Auto-Lock to “Never” (you have an iPhone, so you do know that it’s under iPhone’s Setting’s ‘General’ section, don’t you; and make sure the iPhone is not on Silent mode), and have the app running on foreground and leave it on the character’s Talk mode page (where you see the clock, or the Sleepy mode page), this is important; otherwise, the alarm won’t sound. That’s why the dev says to have the power adapter connected.
Dev is working on the alarm setting. Hopefully next update will make it easier.
For now, just remember to set the Auto-Lock on iPhone’s “Settings” back after you wake up, if you don’t want your iPhone run out of juice while unplugged. ]]]
Next, onto the character’s page. I’ll continue later, but for now, exercise your ability to recognize the following Japanese characters 😀
Basically if you see “表紙へもどる” it means “Back to main page”.
喋る = Talk
添い寝 = Sleepy time with 😀 (basically about to go to sleep with (note: not in the sexual way; how do I translate then? “Sleep with… (wait…no)”; “Sleep next to…” (?) your choice 😀
<- もどる = Back
Characters (on iPhone app so far)
vol.1: 翔 Kakeru (CV. 平川大輔 Hirakawa Daisuke)
vol.2: 仁 Jin (CV. 安元洋貴 Yasumoto Hiroki)
vol.3: 智哉 Tomoya (CV. 立花慎之介 Tachibana Shinnousuke)
vol.4: 壮介 Sosuke (CV. 寺島拓篤 Terashima Takuma)
vol.5: 玲央 Reo (CV. 吉野裕行 Yoshino Hiroyuki)
vol.6: 和也 Kazuya (CV. 鳥海浩輔 Toriumi Kousuke)
vol.7: 誠 Sei (CV. 黒田崇矢 Takada Kuraya)
I’ll add images and explanations. And attempt to translate what they’re saying (it’ll take a while since I’m very
lazy busy) (and hopefully I can take so long to do it until the app gets a feature to show translations a la on/off mode).
So, I hope this helps for now.
The dev will add the rest of the characters in the series. There are a total of 12.
Behave yourselves and be happy that it is made available for the iTunes App Store at all! By the way, an Android version will be available soon too, according to the dev.
I might have to ask the dev if it’s possible to enumerate lines in the voice collection record section…as it may get quite confusing for you to figure out which is which. There are 60 lines for each character (paid), and 7 lines per page, and you just gotta keep pressing the talk buttons to get them or it’d just have the “??????” shown there.
Again, the app is based on the CD Series. So if anybody reading this have found another site where there are translations of the CDs, of if you have translated them yourselves, please let me know so we can share their/your links! THANKS in advance ^_^
