Minipops app

with 10 comments

It makes me very happy to tell you that the Minipops application for iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the iTunes App Store.

http://itunes.com/app/minipops

It came as a wee bit of a surprise, frankly. I got an email over the weekend from Matt (the clever guy who made the app work) saying he’d resubmitted it and it had been approved. Some of you may remember that it was rejected twice, but for some reason, this time it’s all okay. La de da.

So, what is this app thingy? Well, you get to have 1,000 Minipops on your iPhone/iPod touch which you can look at whenever and wherever you want. If you turn your device to landscape mode, the names of the Minipops disappear so you can guess who they are. Touch the little dice icon and they appear randomly; touch the up or down arrows and they appear alphabetically. If you tap and hold one of the Minipops it’ll open the relevant Wikipedia page, and you can save them to email or to use as contact images. All in all, it’s pretty darn ace even if I do say so myself.

It costs £1.79 on the UK iTunes Store, $2.99 on the US store, €2.39 on the European stores (I say that, but I’ve only checked the German, Belgian, and French stores, so that might not be true.) I hope you a) buy it, and b) enjoy it.

You can buy it here: http://itunes.com/app/minipops

  1. They are selling your 'Minipops' book for half price in Borders at Brent Park (Brent Cross). I think we should stage a protest.

  8. PS does this mean you'll start telling us who makes the gizmo you do your Brushes pictures on?

    Cygrl73: Apple take their cut, but, y'know, that's only fair, really.

    Mark: yes! my jihad is over.

    Conor: I will pass on your comments to the technical brains behind the tilting.
