Tin It Or Bin It – Friday 15 April 2011 – Throne up
The Royal Wedding 2011, there is no escape – even at Hot Tin Roof!
To save you the trouble, we’ve been looking at all those lovely Royal Wedding apps.
Hello Magazine have a free Royal Wedding app with photos and commentary leading up to the big day, and The Mirror have announced a paid for app called ‘Wills & Kate a Royal Love Story’. Cringe.
There is even a Royal Invite app where you can pretend to your friends that you have been invited to the big day by showing an onscreen invitation. Who are they fooling? Apparently the onscreen invitation isn’t even close to the real thing, so it really begs the question…what is the point?
Of course it’s all just a bit of fun. However we can think of lots more fun apps than this.
We really don’t see the appeal personally but we know there will be people that will love the novelty of these apps. The question is however…are they so interested that they will actually spend money on them?
Royal Wedding apps, TIN IT OR BIN IT? We are making an executive decision to BIN IT!
However there was something else that caught our eye this week, which was a lot more fun…a Royal Wedding Sick Bag. Now that’s more like it.
This unusual souvenir is created by graphic artist Lydia Leith and is hand screen printed. It has been designed as an antidote to the vast amounts of kitsch memorabilia currently being produced in the lead up to the big day.
This Royal souvenir is a definite TIN IT.
