Pocket Hipster: An iPhone app for hipsters everywhere
Released today into the Apple app store is the Pocket Hipster app from Josephmark, We Are Hunted and The Echo Nest. In a nutshell it’s a simple application with hand drawn animated hipsters insulting you, talking hipster gibberish about eBay and gluten free cupcakes.
You can ask the hipster in question to critique a random song off of your iPod or iPhone of which the hipster will then proceed to insult your music tastes and then recommend you new music using We Are Hunted.
I’ve found that the hipster character Sebastian recommends me crappy indie music, but the other hipster character Delilah actually recommends me music that I will like. I think Sebastian is just a little too hipster for my liking forcing me to listen to indie bands that are no doubt bands that he likes, what a self centred hipster jerk!
It comes with two characters Sebastian and Delilah, but more hipsters are planned later on in 2011. Check out the site and download the app from here.
