James Patterson has a fan club app

You might recall that back in May I showed you a couple demo videos of apps from a developer called Sideways. One of the apps was a fan club app. I thought it was a  great idea, and I'm a little disappointed that no one followed up on it.

Finally, someone has. Hatchette just released an iOS app for James Patterson fans. Like the one I showed you before, this is a fan club app. You can find links to his books, watch video clips of interviews, read about movies he likes,or visit his website.

Needless to say, I like the concept. But I think it should be taken a step further. Why not add a forum that you can access from inside the app? It would help build the fan base, which is the whole point.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
