One really interesting aspect of these heady few weeks before the iPad goes on sale is seeing all the different ways in which companies and developers are using their imagination to tap into its potential. For example, the large, and by all accounts gorgeous, screen obviously lends itself to being the perfect medium for displaying art, much more so than the smaller iPhone/iPod touch.
Digital media company Neutrinos has already picked up on the iPad’s potential in this area, and in particular the displaying of limited edition concert posters, which it intends to market through its Rock Shop app. Aside from displaying the artwork from the limited edition posters and enabling the user to directly purchase the physical poster, often from the creator or design studio themselves, the app will provide quick links to Wikipedia and the iTunes Store to enable users to find out more about the featured music artists. This is what Matt Tuzzolo, Senior Developer at Neutrinos, had to say about Rock Show:
Rock Show will be available as a free download from the iTunes iPad App Store following Apple’s application approval process. Visit Rock Show to sign up for more information.We’re very excited about the new user interface options made possible by the iPad’s large multi-touch display. We really believe in the iPad, so we designed Rock Show to utilize a scalable, cloud-based infrastructure.
