So, just over a month after telling us they wouldn’t be going ahead with the app they’d confirmed they wanted to be official, they’ve released their own app. You never know how much involvement band members have with this type of decision; I suspect most of the discussions and planning were done without having to…Continue reading Call me a cynic but…
Well, over eighteen months after being told the app would be official the band’s representative has just told us they don’t wish to proceed with the app at present. Whilst I’m not surprised I am very disappointed and don’t understand why it’s taken so long to get to this point. If we’d been rejected right…Continue reading It’s official: it’s unofficial
After missing the Christmas release we went back to the band’s management and legal team to say we’re going to go ahead and release the app as an unofficial version. It meant pulling all the official images and music they’d provided but at least it would finally be available. Their response was to tell us…Continue reading It’s really, definitely, official. Honest.
We’ve just had some great feedback from a member of the band; he loves my This Day In Music app! He’d already bought This Day In Led Zeppelin and was delighted we’re producing one for his band. After all the delays this is excellent news and we’re hoping to release it in time to catch…Continue reading They like the app!
I should really know better, after two years of working on the This Day In Music app. It’s now being checked over by people in the band’s organisation. Although this is a bit nerve-wracking for me, it’s a very necessary step and I was foolish to think it would be a quick process. Bearing in…Continue reading Or is it?
I’ve just downloaded and installed the first build of the latest This Day In Music app, research and content by yours truly. I’m really pleased with it and am looking forward to announcing it at last, some time in the next week or so.
All my This Day In Music material is in the process of being edited. It would be easy to get all precious and feel that the product of two years work is being savaged by an over-critical editor. However this is their product and actually the edit requests make sense. Also every signed off piece…Continue reading Editing and more editing
It looks like my patience is being rewarded at last. I’ve just had a call from the This Day In Music Apps guys, informing me that the band’s management team have given the ‘On This Day’ app and ‘Song By Song’ Kindle book the go-ahead as officially endorsed publications. The plan is to release them…Continue reading Official: It’s official!
Well, my ‘On This Day’ app and ‘Song By Song’ Kindle book still haven’t been released. Back at the beginning of the year, it looked as though any hope of my research and writing efforts being blessed with official recognition by the band on which they are focussed was lost. Discussions with the band’s management…Continue reading New Year launch delayed by eleven months
A big chunk of my contribution to the This Day In Music Apps range is due to be released as a Kindle book too! It looks like the ‘Song By Song’ album notes I wrote will be published before the app is released. Negotiations with the band’s management and lawyers are still on-going. I’m really…Continue reading Apps and Kindle books
