It has been little over a month since we launched the The Minx’s mobile app for them and it has become very popular. Fans can use this app to stay connected to the bands very latest updates and exclusive music (and videos) they make available. It pulls together all of the Bands social channels right into the palm of your hand, plus exclusive content that may only be available on the App.

The App Experience is partnering Live and Unsigned UK. It is the UK’s largest national music competition for original unsigned acts and bands, over 40,000 musicians from across the country enter every year. We are providing our latest product, FanApp, as part of the main prize for the winning band or act.
We have launched the music specific App, FanApp, to boost bands ability to connect with their fans and this year’s competition winner will be able to look forward to having their own custom app.
Use Your App To Communicate With Your Fans
FanApp takes all of your usual communication methods, like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, SoundCloud and Reverbnation and puts them together in one place. There is also the option for a manual feed, powered by your own unique web portal, that will allow you to put exclusive content onto the App, making it THE place to visit for your fans.
The App is available for the iPhone and Android as recent stats show that average daily usage of Apps is now 81 minutes (up from 43 minutes in 2010*, which is outstripping both desktop and mobile web usage), having an App as part of your communication mix is starting to be one of the best ways to connect with your fans.
So whether you are an up and coming band, yet to break through, or you’re an established band that wants a different way of communicating with your fans, FanApp from The App Experience will allow you to take advantage of this increasing mobile App usage, building even greater loyalty and support from your fan base.
FanApp from The App Experience
With over 10 years mobile phone development experience, The App Experience can produce Apps for all mobile phone platforms including iPhone, Android and Blackberry.
FanApp was launched by The App Experience when 2010’s Live and Unsigned winners, The Lottery Winners, asked for help in promoting their band. With their input, we developed a format that includes all of their current promotional channels, but also allows scope for extra’s, news that is only available on this App. Thom from The Lottery Winners had this to say about their App:
“Keeping up with technology is absolutely essential these days, and what better way than with an app. We always aim to be accessible to our fans, and ensure that they are always kept in the loop. We are absolutely thrilled with our App, and with The App Experience and we think that any other bands would be too!”
We are huge music fans and want to help up and coming bands, so our pricing structure has been designed to be as affordable as possible. Contact us for more information.
