The Color Theory App

the Color Theory app

It had to happen, right? The new Color Theory app for Android and iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) makes it easy for us to stay connected. It’s a great way to keep up with my music and goings-on, and it’s free.

To make it worth your while, I’ll be sneak previewing my new song “A Slip of the Finger” on the app next week! I still need artwork before I can set a formal release date, so you’ll be the first to hear it.

Don’t go looking for it in the app store, because it’s not there. Just visit the following page on your phone. It walks you through the process of installing it to your home screen.

Alternately, if you know what to do with this, then by all means…

If you don’t have a compatible device, that’s okay! You can mess around with it in your browser.

What do you think? Is it fun? Redundant? Buggy? If it’s not worth keeping on your phone, I want to know!

UPDATE: Just got word from the developer that the Android “installation” (it’s just a web app) isn’t so clear. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Bookmark the page
  2. Tap and hold the just created bookmark until options appear
  3. Chose the option “Add shortcut to home”

UPDATE 7/1/11: As promised, “A Slip of the Finger” is now playable through the app. The song will be formally released and available for download soon. Hope you enjoy it!

  1. There's no app per se, it's just a mobile optimized webpage. On iPhones you can create a link on the desktop, so it looks like it's an app (the browser controls don't appear). On Android, it's not exactly the same.

  2. Kudos on the mobile web app, the real silver bullet if you had teased people with a preview of a new track, available only via this page.

  3. They refer to it as a "web app." I got an email back from them, and updated the post to reflect their instructions. So basically, yeah, you just bookmark it to your home screen.

  4. Cool app! I love the music. The only thing I noticed was that if you view the app in landscape, then switch to portrait, everything is smashed up at the top of the screen in a landscape format on Android!

  5. I uninstalled the NIN app too, and I have no idea what Trent's been up to lately. Coincidence? ;)

    Kidding aside, I'm not sold on band apps either. But if my fans like it and want to use it, I'll keep it updated.

  6. My Facebook news feed has been my favorite way to keep up with all the bands I like on my iPhone. It gives me video, photos, music, instant news, etc. I'm interested to see how you end up using it.

  7. I must say that i like this webapp. And looking forward to listen to the new track later next week :)

    take care!

  8. Yeah my app still doesn't work. It keeps saying "won't play video" even though its just a song. It doesn't play the song either. It shows but no song. Maybe it doesn't work for a droid phone.

  9. Hope the Apo is here to stay, i think it's realy nice. But Brian do what's best for you. We can always surf to your place like the old days ;)

    Take care
