Guess a Dark Star Orchestra Show and other Mobile Apps

Postby phpbb » Wed Jul 15, 2009 5:36 am

I've put together a simple "portal" for iphone users, which you can get to by going to http://www.rukind.com on your iphone.

here is a page that talks about it:

http://www.rukind.com/mobile/index/html

So far you can easily get to these forums and also get access to the guitar tabs.

The other app I whipped up was something I refer to as the "Dark Star Oracle" which allows you to create setlists, specifically for DSO now, and then get a list of Grateful Dead shows that have the same set list, until there is only one (or none). I have tested it with previous sets, and it has successfully guesses the shows, but I am positive there are some issues that I need to address, so if you are going to a Dark Star Show, and you have an iphone, give the app a try and let me know.

It has been specifically designed for the iphone, making it easy to find songs and build setlists.

Here is some more info about the Dark Star Oracle:

Just an FYI -

That wordwrap thing seems like a Blackberry bug, but I will attempt to get around it, I like a geeky challenge!

I also have an idea for a forum "light" that will make it easier to navigate.

As far as the Oracle goes, not only can it predict the concert Dark Star Orchestra is playing, but it can also tell you the probabilities for what the next song will be! Interestingly, so far, it has taken no more than 5 first set songs to predict a show. Now if I could just get someone to do it in real time...

PS - I love getting feedback, I never expect my stuff to be finished when I first put it out there, more like announcing I am open for input!
