A new app to help you keep your fans happy, while still allowing you to have fun with them is out, and it’s called “Clip On Fan”.
It’s the brainchild of a Queensland-based app developer, Ryan Taylor, who says the app will be able to detect whether a person has been a fan for at least 12 months, and will show you an actionable way to change their preferences.
“I think it’s going to be one of the most popular apps in the world,” he said.
“It’s going a long way to bringing the fan experience to the masses.”
Taylor said the app was developed with a lot of help from the Australian Rugby League Club and its fans.
“We spent months and months just looking at how we can help our fans and how we could help them,” he told ABC Radio Brisbane.
“One of the things that was important to us was to have a great fan experience, and we wanted to make sure that was the case with the app.”
The app is being launched on the Apple App Store for iPhone and Android devices.
Mr Taylor said the new app would allow fans to change preferences, and share videos of them liking their favourite teams and games.
“You can get a list of fans that you can interact with through the app,” he explained.
“Then you can set up a custom playlist that you want to use.”‘
I’m a little bit scared’Mr Taylor is not the only one who is worried about the app’s potential impact.
“The only thing that really scared me is that it could be used by a lot more people than we are used to seeing, because you can actually make people like you and then change their tastes,” said David Miller, a member of the NRL Club’s Fans Council.
“If you can turn a lot people off, then that’s going be a pretty big problem.”
Mr Miller said the league would be interested in hearing from any suggestions on how the app could be improved.
“At the moment, it’s a really good tool to let people know that you’re the fan that they should be following,” he added.
“So I think that’s the real reason why people would want to try it.”
