DRAINSPOTTING App hits NEW & NOTEWORTHY on ITUNES


Drainspotting Extras: Japnese Manhole Covers, the App, has hit the New and Noteworthy page on ITUNES. Yes this is the front page! When i started off this little project I really didn't think that so many people would be so interested in these fascinating manhole covers, as I myself am, but I was wrong!. Thanks to everyone out there that is Drainspotting around the world and carrying on this OTAKU tradition through this Japanese phenomenon, we have hit the front page of ITUNES!
Next stop hopefully will be Whats Hot.
Drainspotting Extras, the title : So after much deliberation and conversation with MBP, my publisher for the Hard Copy Book, we have all decided that it would be best to call the Ipad App, Drainspotting Extras, instead of just Drainspotting. We decided this because we thought that people would possibly think that the App may be the book itself. It is pretty clear throughout  the App and any descriptions that it is not the same as the book, and i can assure you all, that the photographs in the book and in the App are different drainspots. 
The reason I put together the app was because we could not fit all of the wonderful Drainspotting photographs collected into the first book. So I decided to create this App so as people  could start collecting them all and seeing much more variety of Manhole Covers. I say this, because it is like collecting. Once you have seen one compelling manhole cover, you just want to keep seeing more. It is highly addictive and there are over 6000 drainspots to have!
Extra news is DRAINSPOTTING the BOOK has arrived at Mark Batty Publisher and I am eagerly awaiting to hold the very first copy in my hands when it arrives via UPS to Japan... EXCITING!
I will be previewing a first look here soon.
