Although Kings of Leon are currently taking a bit of a break, their fans are being treated with a new iPhone app. Tapulous, who made the "Tap Tap Revenge" app, is pairing up with KoL to create an app that will feature their hit songs including "Use Somebody" and "Notion". Not only will fans be able to play the Guitar Hero-style game on their iPhone or iPod touch, but they can enable their bluetooth for a battle mode to play against other fans. In addition to the game, the app offers an exclusive chatroom for fans. The app will be sold for $4.99.
I think this is a great idea. If one of my favorite bands released an app like this that featured a sizable amount of their music on it, I would definitely buy it. I do think that $4.99 is a little expensive for an app, but again, big fans of the band would definitely be willing to pay the price. One thing I like in particular about this app is that it's interactive. The apps that feature pictures and videos are getting really old and dry, because those are things that are very easy to find on the internet for free. A game like this, however, is a great idea for an app.
Here's an ad for the app:
