A lot of commenting has been going on about the latest zombie/Pride and Prejudice application from Freeverse. I posted in my last discussion about the new app that it kept stuffing up around Chapter ten (and that it had happened to other people as well).
Shortly after posting up the review, I received an email from Freeverse’s Senior Producer Justin D’Onofrio asking me a few questions about my phone (have I jailbreaked it- I wish!- etc) and saying that they believe the problem is “related to the amount of free memory on the device” Continue reading

I ADORE zombie films. 28 days later, Dawn of the Dead etc… amazing. But I don’t really want the P&P side of this to fall flat, and degrade the classic down into a rehashing of every other zombie movie but with some pretty bonnets thrown in.”
