From today - The Chinmayi App

The first iOS app by a musician across all iOS devices and also the first female singer in India to have an iOS App. The android version will also release soon. 

I had known the brain behind Dakshaa LLC, Naveen, virtually for a while and he is a serial entrepreneur. When I was in the US for the Fortune/ US State Dept mentoring program he told me to release an app. I, of course was apprehensive, wondering who would want to see an app released by me. He was good at convincing me and he is, as I see today from the response I am getting from the Press and Twitter, quite right. 

This will be an interactive App from the next update which will come in 3 weeks and this will also be the platform where I will release my own music or the result of any collaborations I am working on now. This app will also feature exclusive video content in the future. 

I guess this is enough said for now. I have been getting a lot of reviews and inputs from those who have downloaded it reading my tweets and I understand there are some who read my blog that also read my tweets. :)

So yes, this is the beginning of a lot of things to come :)

Here is a preview of the app

What are you going to share in that app? Music and songs? But I guess we need iphone to download it. But we'll rather wait for the Android version :)

this is unfair!!! I am still using an age old phone, which does not even speak GPRS!!! can u do something like a desktop version (widget) ? please? We did not commit any sin, to be deprived of the exclusive stuff :(

Great news Chinmayi... Another medium to listen to your music... But always remember we like your music/singing, and it doesn't matter how it is delivered. I am cautiously optimistic! ;-)

cheers,
subbu...

I get to see only first page of your app. Just 4 icons are visible. I use an Ipod touch4g. Pliss to know the solution.
P.S: I tried restarting/reinstalling. nothing worked.

Hi chinmayi,

I would also recommend building a BlackBerry app in addition to the other two platforms considering it is one of the best selling platforms in India where your target audience will be.

Hi

BB is switching its OS in less than a few months. We thought it will be a waste of resources to design it for an OS which is on the way out. however the android app will be ready in a week or maybe at the max two.

vanniaperumal said...

I don't think bb os will be changed.. just couple of days back 3 new bb's have been released and it has os 7.0 Which means, thy won't release new os in less than 6 months

This is not about your apps although I am sure it is wonderful. It is just that I am not tech savvy enough to comment.

This is about the show in Sydney on Aug 21, 2011 which I watched and thoroughly enjoyed. I sincerely want to thank all of you for a most enjoyable evening. I cannot say I was surprised by Vani Jairam's virtuoso, but Vijay Yesudas, Haricharan and you were simply amazing. I absolutely loved your effortless singing. (Was looking forward to your rendition of 'oonjaladuvom...ullasamai,sandoshamai' which sadly was missing from your repertoire.) Haricharan's versatality was astounding and Yesudas Jr has improved by leaps and bounds (Last heard him on TV years ago and could not help drawing a comparison to his legendary father, although I know it is unfair!).

The musicians were fantastic and Nikhil Ram on the flute was spell-binding, to say the least. Kudos to all of you.

Best wishes for a glorious career.

hi... Your Voice in the film KO is sooooooo goood.... It melts in my ears even now.... Especially when you say "enna thirupi thara mudiyum Ashwin..."

I never knew it was you who was dubbing for Karthika.... I thought vow... who is this girl with such a wonderful voice... So modern... So thoughtful... So cool and dynamic... Wat not....But then i came to know its you... And then realization took effect... ATB

Haven't got much into iOS and Android yet. But it is thrilling to hear this 'first'. Kudos!
