NIN Readies iPhone / iPod Touch Music Community App
Trent Reznor and co-conspirator Rob Sheffield have developed a dedicated NIN app for the iPhone and iPod touch.
Like the rest of his savvy online ventures, Reznor has come strong with a slick and sophisticated application that looks to set the high-water-mark for mobile applications for musicians.
The app seamlessly combines online community, streaming music from NIN and various NIN remixers, custom playlists, Twitter-like social messengering with geo-tagging, NIN authorized and fan-submitted images and media from NIN concerts and events and more.
Reznor then sends out his obligatory diss of Steve Gottlieb, former President of TVT Records, and any other studio executive: “anyone who’s an executive at a record label does not understand what the internet is, how it works, how people use it, how fans and consumers interact – no idea.”
The NIN iPhone app will be available for free in the near future.
