The launch is nearly here! I've been working on a music game app and could use help from anyone interested. SmashBrackets is a bootstrap effort and will be released for iOS only next month. Most music apps are tap to the rhythm, identify a song quickly or trivia. I'm interested in getting people talking about music. The idea is to fill out a sports bracket with songs and artists based on a theme, time period or mood and you can communicate with others on their picks as each round's results are revealed. You can even try to predict which song/artist will get the most votes.
I'm starting to bring up my social media pages starting with twitter, https://twitter.com/SmashBrackets
and you can get on a list to be notified of the launch date @ www.smashbrackets.com
; a fb page to get feedback on themes and such will kick off around Thanksgiving.How can you help?
(I'm glad you asked. No, really, really
glad you asked
1) Are you a tester? If you have an iPhone and are interested, send me a message here, email or fb. I'll need a device ID which you can find on iTunes (will help you, but it's easy to find) and I'll send you a link. We're a few weeks from submitting to the app store. And we're working on defects and bugs. I could use your honest feedback
and it will make the product better.
If you want to wait until we're debugged, stay in touch and I'll let you know when you can download from the store (free app, btw).
2) Interested in helping me come up with content? Have a niche playlist (ska, reggae, power pop) or some other theme you'd like to contribute? Have a friend who might like to contribute...send them my way!! Other examples: Music from a particular region (Manchester, SoCal, Seattle), songs with wacky titles, duos...the list goes on and on.
3) I mentioned friends...I can use help getting the word out. Know someone who blogs or tweets about music?
I know mobile games are not everyone's bag and my intention posting here is not as a self-promotion tool. I simply wanted to tell you about my passion project and put it out there in case there are a couple folks interested in participating. Thanks for reading!
