Chris Coyle contacted me today to let me know that he is currently working on a Monkees app for Windows Phone. The official Monkees app produced by Rhino is only available for iOS and Android, and this would be another viable alternative on the market.
Chris, who is a Windows Phone 8 user, is developing apps using a new program that Microsoft has just released. Be sure to watch the demo video for his Monkees app below. I'm also honored to report that Chris is utilizing the Live Almanac's RSS blog feed as part of his app! He will keep us posted on the process and let us know when the app will be available in the Microsoft store. If you would like to contact Chris, you can email him at Jccoyle@live.com.
A little note on Chris: I connected with him online in 2000 or so. In 2001 I began a small project, writing brief summaries for each Monkees tour and embellishing the information with set lists and reviews. Brad Waddell at Monkees.net was kind enough to publish my work on his website that year, and Chris was a big help in collecting variations of set lists from different tours, reviewing the summaries I had written, etc. It took a decade for this website to be created, but the genesis of it all started during that time with assistance from Chris.
