Well, it was like watching the proverbial paint dry, but on October 7th Apple finally approved our iPhone app and released it to the app store. Here's the link to the app page at Apple.com. If you want to download the app directly on your iPhone, search for "hearts of space" in the App Store app. It'll cost you the grand total of 99 cents, which will buy some beer and pizza for our programmers.
As an introductory special, we've opened up access to THIS WEEK'S SHOW without a subscription. If you don't already have an account, just register for free — you can do it within the app. Once you've entered you email and password once, the app will remember it and sign you in automatically.You can use the same email address and password for free service on our main web site using our Flash player.
To use all the features of the app, you need either our "AAA" All Archive Access Plan, OR, our "Radio Channel + This Week's Show" combo plan. To keep the price as low as possible, you have to do this on our web site, not in the app.
The app has one feature that we have yet to introduce on our web service: if you have either of the plans above, you can skip a show in the Radio Channel if you'd prefer to hear something else. Just tap the >>| icon on the Now Playing screen.
Here's what it looks like (click the image for a full size view):
A BIG FAT THANKS to ace programmers PAUL YAGO and JOHN ZORKO, project manager JOSEPH JACOBS, code wrangler and API spinner STEPHEN BROSSEAU, and project nervous system and customer support LEYLA HILL. Yours truly did the graphics.
It's really nice to finally see this thing out in the world! Now, on to Android...
