Band of The Day for iPad Gets a Major Update

Band of The Day Top of the Charts

The excellent Band of The Day app for iPad has had a major update this week, to Version 3.0.

This is a great free app for discovering new music, with a gorgeous interface. It’s a past pick for Best Free iPad App of the Week here, and still a big favorite on my iPad. And this update sounds great:

After a fantastic year this is a major new release of the award winning Band of the Day!
– Mix Tape – listen to hours of our fantastic bands
– Similar bands – when you’ve finished listening to a band we’ll play related bands from our back catalog
– Improved music player – the music player is always available and at your fingertips
– Improved reading experience – we take you straight to the review and biography of the band of the day
– We’ve improved our menu system to make it easier for you to access various features with just one tap anywhere in the app

Band of The Day new stuff

Though these new features sound great, sadly I am not having much luck with some of them. Each time I tap on Mixtape for instance the app either crashes back to the home screen or just sits at a ‘Loading’ screen forever.

In fact, the app is just crashing a heck of a lot in general after this update – even after rebooting the iPad and reinstalling the app.

The UI is still lovely, and the new features are welcome – so hopefully the developers will iron out some of the stability issues in another update soon. Oh, and I can’t get enough of listening to ZZ Ward at the moment, so here’s a gratuitous extra app screencap:


Here’s an App Store link for Band of The Day; it’s still a free app and a universal app designed for both the iPad and iPhone.
