An iPhone App 4 Your Band

If you have a band, get your own iPhone app and have your users download it from the Apps Store. Your users will be able to browse and listen to clips of your music. They can also click on a song and go directly to iTunes to purchase it. Your app also integrates your social network so all your iPhone app users can share photos, videos, comments, etc.

So how do you get your own iPhone app for your band? That's where MobileRoadie comes in. Instead of having to hire programmers and telling them what you envision, and paying them by the hour, just let MobileRoadie set you up almost instantly. Pricing is USD 399 to set up the app and then USD 29 per month for up to 1,000 fans; each additional fan costs 1 cent per month.
