Bayside: Mobile Backstage iPhone App

The Bayside Mobile Backstage app doesn’t live up to expectations, although it does have some decent social networking features.

Facebook and Twitter connectivity, interaction with other Bayside fans on the app’s fan wall, and the ability to see what the members of the band are doing via their own social networking profiles go a long way towards keeping fans in touch. But overall, Bayside: Mobile Backstage is just too basic — like a cookie cutter version of what we imagine an artist app to be.

You get an events page where the latest Bayside concert dates are listed, plus the opportunity to stream some of the band’s music, but it doesn’t offer anything groundbreaking in terms of features or design.

Sure, this app free, but when we set out to canvas the artist apps that were out there, we just expected a bit more than this one delivered.
