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.
