iPhone/iPod Touch applications?
So I recently published my first iPhone application (a puzzle game, called Blok-Buster http://iPhoneClassics.com). I am in the process of writing a couple more apps for iPhone and iPod Touch - one that I’m actually getting *paid* for… heh.
Since I’m still not gainfully employed, and surviving on contract work, I’ve been brainstorming ideas for other apps I could develop in the future that might have at least a niche audience. The iPhone is seriously lacking any ABC applications. I have toyed with the idea of trying to write a full-fledged ABC application that would display dots, and play midi (shudder), but it would be a serious amount of (unpaid) work. How much interest is there in that?
I don’t have a good feel for how many people in the Irish music community actually have an iPhone or iPod Touch. And if you do, how much would you be willing to pay for an ABC player? $10?
What about a 99 cent app that acted as a "little black book", to let you jot down the first few bars of ABC of a tune as a memory aid, and then scroll through, or search them at a later date? Or maybe it could let you choose between jotting down ABC or putting in a couple of bars of dots… Would people use that?
