Space Invader Radio iPhone App version 2.0

Is done and submitted to the appStore… So, heres a short video of it functioning via iOS simulator:

Coded from the ground up and rather than it just being a simple player like v1, i’ve now integrated social functions with
both twitter and facebook clients so no need to leave the app when you want to talk shit in your fave poison…

While iOS4 has backgrounding, version 3 doesn’t so this caters for much more of an audience and anyway even with backgrounding you still have to leave the app and tweet or what ever — much more convenient and instant this way.

Apple approved the app on August 01 2011 so here’s the App store link

Two Awards For Trek America’s Eight Mates Campaigns

Before leaving KMP I was heavily involved with developing the strategy for a camping called 8 Mates and looky here, its smashing the award parades this year…

First up, UK Tourism Web Awards “Best use of Social Media”
Award: GOLD

Trek America won the hotly contested “Best use of Social Media” with Trek America Live because it was recognised that social media sat at the heart of the company’s marketing and that it all stemmed from the Social Media Portal where past, current and future Trekkers are able to share their experience and advice with one another. Beating off some hot competition from Emirates, Jet2 and Eurostar.

Secondly, Marketing Society Northern Awards “Best use of Social Media under 100k”
Award: GOLD
The reasons given for winning this award was the campaign’s “Expert knowledge of the target audience, strategy to encourage engagement and the outstanding results it achieved”. Once again, some stiff competition in this generic category, including promotions for brands such as ASDA and Cobra beer.
