Project Neon iPhone App
UPDATE: The Project Neon iPhone app works with the current iOS (6.1 or later), hurrah!, though it didn’t work with 6.0. If you’re having problems with the app, check to see that you have the most recent operating system.
The free Project Neon app for iPhone is now available at the iTunes store. Get it here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/project-neon/id464751184
Please email me at email@example.com if you have any problems with the app. For problems downloading or installing it, please see the iTunes store help page.
If you’d like to suggest other signs, please email me the business name, address or cross streets, and a brief description of the sign. I do have a backlog of signs to photograph, so more will be added soon, but keep in mind that to keep the database from getting too large, we have to limit the number of neon signs. You can see all my neon sign photographs on Flickr.
Some tips for using the Project Neon app:
When you’re in the Gallery view, you can click on any thumbnail to view it larger, then turn your phone sideways to see the photo full-screen. Drag right or left (or tap the arrows at the bottom) to see other photos, or click the Gallery button at the top to return to the thumbnails. When looking at one photo, tap the I button at the bottom (double-tap the photo) to see the sign’s information.
The Signs page lists signs by distance from your current location, with signs I especially recommend being marked with a star. Click any sign to see the photo and information, and click on the five stars by the sign’s name to rate the sign.
You can also share signs by Facebook, Twitter, or email (we’re working on Foursquare integration) by tapping the share button in the upper right.
Signs I particularly recommend are marked with a red starred pin on the map and listed on the Recommended tap of Top Signs, while the signs with the highest ratings from users are listed under Most Popular. In map view, you can tap any map pin to see the sign’s name and thumbnail, and click there to access the sign’s listing.
I will be updating the database with additional signs and any corrections periodically, and the app will update the database automatically.
If you find any mistakes or have any questions, problems, or suggestions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you enjoyed the app, please consider rating it at the iTunes store. Thank you!
