I have to admit, this app hit my sweet spot by opening with a Stevie Wonder poster and “Boogie On, Reggae Woman.”
Not that it was a coincidence – after browsing the app, I realized it draws from your music library in choosing posters to show you. Because that’s the idea behind the aptly named Rock Show Concert Posters, by Neutrinos, LLC; you can view and purchase the professional posters made for your favorite bands.
The design is perfect. At the top, choose whether you’d like to search by band or designer. At the bottom, you’ll say the name of the band, the designer, and the edition, along with the option to email and share the poster. The price and option to purchase is at the top right. You can even go into Settings and change the background on which the poster appears.
Tap the Search icon to search (be sure you have it on Bands if that’s how you want to search, or go by Designers). The app will first generate a list of bands in your library who have posters, followed by the rest in alphabetical order. Start typing in the name of a band or designer in the field, and the app will narrow it down to the closest matches they have.
I love free apps that don’t skimp on quality. The design and layout of Rock Show Concert Posters is great – tapping on the poster even gives you a full screen view, which you can rotate. When you’re looking at a poster for a band in your music library, the app pulls one of their songs, which you can listen to by tapping “play” at the bottom. If you’re shopping for rock show posters, or just want to check out the images on your iPhone, this a great one to download.
