Cinema on-demand 


On-demand cinema is a crowdfunded solution which allows people to see great older movies again and cinemas don't have to worry about about the possibility of losing money when screening these movies. It works by pre-selling the tickets and if enough people have bought the ticket, then and only then the movie will be screened.

Tuning Fork for Windows Phone

It is simply a tuning fork in a phone. The beauty of the product is that now you will always carry your tuning fork with you; on a training session, on a performance, even on a spontaneous jam session. And what would be more entertaining for your audience than taking up a phone when they expected to see a tuning fork! Keep it handy, get inspired, and entertain your audience.  Imagine any legendary instrument; a Steinway & Sons, a Stradivarius or a Fender Telecaster. This is The Steinway / Stradivarius / Tele of tuning fork apps.
