Who knows, but it’s definitely something more artists should try and take advantage of. Mobile applications are currently exploding and probably will keep blowing up once other cell companies get their app stores up to snuff.
An artist Iphone App gives a fan a unique way to interact with the artist and the music. You can have music/video on there, you could promote a tour, you could give it away to build a fanbase, etc..
What if you had an app that had a year’s worth of 3Ps, it would allow you to keep in touch with fans, and it would cost under $5?? Why not also throw in a discount on anything physical you have for sale too??
The iphone app is something actually kind of new and that carries some weight for the moment. People may actually pay for that because it’s more interesting than a CD and gives you more bang for you buck. You can really get creative with it.
If you don’t know code and/or design, there’s definitely going to be a learning curve or you’re going to shell out some dough. That being said, it might be worth checking out e-lance (after you have an idea) to see what kinda bids you get.
It might actually cost less than pressing CDs. It’s definitely worth checking out before this becomes boring for people.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWtHEmVjVw8]
