We are extremely proud to be able to finally announce a major milestone in Ants site history: DMB Hub
from antsmarching.org, a brand new iPhone app that aims to be your one-stop mobile destination for all things DMB!
Our initial release contains The Hub, News, Tour Central, Live Show Updates, Push Notifications and the Setlist Game. Over the coming weeks we will continue to add more features, but for now we've packed the app with loads of features, free
of charge. All we ask is that you tell your friends. Available now, free on the App Store
The Hub is where you’ll find daily DMB history updates, top discussion threads, breaking alerts, news, site updates and show reminders. Each of these categories of information can individually be set to receive push notifications, so you'll always be up to the minute. All intended to keep your finger on the pulse of the DMB community.
Of course, the heart of antsmarching.org is Tour Central, and DMB Hub is a perfect way to explore the band’s entire live catalog. Browse year-by-year, and when you find a show you’re interested in, just tap to view the setlist. Or, those with an iPhone 6S or 6S Plus can leverage 3D touch to “peek” at a show, and if you’re interested, “pop” into it. You can even use 3D Touch to shortcut into the current show, or simply a random one, right from your home screen.
DMB Hub not only leverages Tour Central to show you setlists, but also contextual information about each show. Tap on any song, and a pop up will display, giving you information about that specific performance of the song. Tap the share button to send out any setlist you like to your friends or social networks. You can even place ShowFlow votes on the songs, thanks to the ability to log in with your Ants account.
Speaking of logging in with your Ants account, would you like to challenge your mates for bragging rights on who can best predict what the band will play? The Setlist Game is for you. Now you can get your picks in on the go without having to worry about rushing home to beat the deadline.
DMB Hub also knows when a live show is going on. When you’re viewing the live setlist, tap any of the songs played so far to pull up historical information on the performance. When was this last rare song played? How many shows has it been? Has it ever been played at this venue, and when? All at your fingertips.
Oh, and if you have an Apple Watch, DMB Hub enables you to pull up the latest (or live!) setlist right on your watch.
DMB Hub from antsmarching.org. An incredibly powerful and unparalleled DMB fan experience. We're extraordinarily proud to bring this to the Ants and DMB communities. We'll be adding more features over the coming weeks. We've made the app free, so all we ask in return is to please tell your friends!
