Jazz and Folk fan ,

Great concept, well executed

This app is really fun, adds so much extra content to the album in a really fun and engaging way! Look forward to seeing/hearing how the cover progresses through the seasons. Well done on a great album experience 👏

This is a game changer in album design!

Being able to bring albums to life, always changing bringing a whole new modern aspect to traditional physical ownership of music.

The app and all it’s features work flawlessly and I’m excited to see what else comes along within the app.

10/10 - 5*


Great idea but manual mode is broken

Lovely idea! However live mode just adds sound effects of seagulls and chatter, no augmented anything. Manual mode (which I presume would allow you to sect different weather conditions?) is locked on Cloudy and again no augmented anything

The gatefold elements work well

Developer Response ,

Hi there... thank you for the feedback.

Just to highlight a couple of points, the Live Mode is synced to your local weather / time of day (within 15 minutes). There are dozens of front cover variations, but one of those variations is very similar to the original artwork... and that is the "Cloudy" artwork. So there is the possibility that you were simply viewing the record at a cloudy point of the day. Please try scanning the record at night, or during different weather elements to see the AR in all it's glory.

And Manual Mode allows you to select different weather conditions ONCE you've discovered them in live mode... allowing you to revisit what you've already found etc. So that is why it is locked to Cloudy on your instance of the app... because that is all you have discovered so far.

Hope that helps,

Jamie, Codename Records
