Rating: Mention on breakfast show promotes iPhone app
Here’s a successful way to get your iPhone app promoted. Get it mentioned on your local radio station. That’s what happened with Couple Talk written by a Wokingham counsellor, Paul Cockayne. The iPhone app got a star mention on the breakfast show at Radio Jackie which covers North Surrey and South West London. The only snag was that the DJs didn’t mention how you could get the app. Luckily GoMo News has tracked it down. You can purchase it for £1.49 from here.The app is aimed that couples who’ve been together so long that they have forgotten the art of conversation. It reminds us of Stuck4words -an app created by legendary electronics hack, David Manners.Couple Talk consists of a bank of 500 questions. The questions are colour coded to indicate the degree of intimacy involved.
The coding mimics a traffic light so it starts off with Green coded questions; moves onto Amber coded ones; whilst the red questions are about the more personal things we talk about, like sex or death, and are very intimate.
Judging from the app’s age 17 + rating, some of those red questions must be quite fruity. Particularly since the app is categorised as containing intense sexual content or nudity.
Avid GoMo News readers may remember that we covered StuckWords iphone app a while back here.
S4W was designed to get the socially inept out of sticky situations when they haven’t a clue what to say. Sadly this app appears to have disappeared from the iTunes app store.
Interestingly, the report on Cockayne on the getwokingham site here says he developed the app after buying a copy of the book – iPhone Application Development for Dummies. However, he had worked as an IT programmer before.
Apparently Cockayne is contemplating making more out of the app either by translating it into other languages (quite difficult we’d say) or by writing more questions (a lot easier) or both.
Now all we’ve got to do is find a way to get Radio Jackie to mention GoMo News.
