Apple users have a new Pink Floyd application available. This Day In Pink Floyd is a must have for every Pink Floyd fan with tons of facts, photos, song info, trivia and more. It’s available now as an app for iPhone, iPad and iTouch.
Appolicious calls it “an app brimming with trivia for the landmark rock band. You’ll get daily facts about Pink Floyd right on your iOS device thanks to the app, and it contains information about every single track ever recorded to help inform the curious. This Day in Pink Floyd packs more than 100 photos within it, as well as about 200 trivia questions the app can ask you in order to let you play along. It also contains a free ring tone and a rare, newly restored video for the track Point Me At The Sky.”
The app makers say This Day in Pink Floyd is the “ultimate accompaniment to the ultimate band. The App will even play your own Pink Floyd music from your iTunes library – and connect you (via WiFi or 3G) to buy the tracks you don’t already have!
All this, plus every conceivable official link.”
