Adam Curry’s ‘The Big App Show’

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

Adam Curry did it again; making an unique service, available for all, by combining existing components into something new and exciting.

Roughly six years ago he and Dave Winer gave us podcasting (jeez, Adam, that means that the 6 year anniversary of our ‘Studio A8′ meeting on the dutch A4 is coming up soon! πŸ˜‰ ).

This time Adam is presenting ‘The Big App Show‘, a daily interactive show broadcast to iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches around the globe. Each β€˜appisode’ πŸ˜‰ features a full screen demo of the latest and hottest must have apps.

I see many of Adam’s talents, including the ‘famous’ MTV-day ones, all coming together in The Big App Show, keywords: internet based, geek-time, entrepreneurial, creative, show presentation / DJ-ing/VJ-ing, interactive, and mostly having FUN!

The USA Today says: β€œOn The Big App Show, Curry delivers breezy two- to four-minute features on “really cool” apps. He plays with the app on an iPhone so users can see how it works, rather than forcing them to stare at static screenshots.β€œ

And it doesn’t stop there…the next phase is that celebs will be presenting their favorite iDevice Apps on The Big App Show. Ha, ain’t that old skool MTV-vibes goin’ round?? Great!

The first guest is David Hasselhoff…so 80’s, a perfect fit! Hehe, The Big App Show will be Hoffed!! πŸ˜‰

I can’t wait! And you shouldn’t either, so go get the App!

Oh, the process of developing his first iPhone app wasn’t all that easy as you can read from Adam’s ‘My First iPhone App – A N00b’s Story‘ blogpost. πŸ˜‰
