Viewing Young Twinn’s Tweet on his own Young Twinn App

Young Twinn Twitter

This is totally awesome. I sent an ad-hoc beta version of the Young Twinn iPhone app to Young Twinn’s management, and Twinn is already raving about it on Twitter, which can be viewed on the Young Twinn iPhone app! Given how long the application approval can take, can you say an-ti-ci-pa-tion?


The Young Twinn iPhone App Preview

I first met Young Twinn four years ago for some mix work I did for him and his management company Undertaker Entertainment.  This kid is a real talent and has definite cross over appeal.  He’s based in Houston and he’s definitely worth checking out.  When Undertaker was looking to do an iPhone app, I of course seized on the opportunity.  I had other music market apps in the works and I’ve had a good on going relationship with the company.  Plus what made the project desirable was that Young Twinn’s management has done a great job with his marketing and branding, so there was plenty of content for me to pull from.

Some of the cool features in this app that don’t seem to be present in other music marketing apps are support for RSS feeds for YouTube and Twitter.  The great thing about this is that I didn’t have to do any server side development.  Soon, I hope to have Picasa and FlickR support as well.  The only reason this app is not released yet is that I have to make sure it’s iPhone OS 3.0 beta compatible, which is now a requirement for submission to the iTunes store.  The video above are screenshots of the app.  I couldn’t do motion capture of the iPhone sumulator because the simulator doesn’t support audio playback and YouTube embeds in WebKit.
