The Haiku Foundation’s proprietary haiku app for Apple platform, THF Haiku, has been expanded to incorporate all the poems that appeared in Per Diem: Daily Haiku during 2014. That brings the total to more than 1500 poems now stored on the app. Each time the app is opened, a new poem is randomly selected to appear, and a new poem can be had by pressing the selector button, or merely by shaking your phone or mobile device. We hope the addition of 365 new poems will make the app more fun and pleasing than ever.
What do I need to do?
If your phone or mobile device runs iOS6 or earlier: nothing. The upgrade is effective only on devices that run iOS7 or iOS8.
If your phone or mobile device runs iOS7 or iOS8: log in to the App Store to download the app for either iPhone or iPad.
But there’s more—the THF Haiku App Mini-Review Contest!
Once you’ve checked out the new app, tell us what you think. Bloggers: write a review (up to 100 words) and post it on your blog, adding the link to the app. Tell us (using the Contact Form) that you’ve done so, providing the url of your review blog post. THF will choose the best review, and announce and feature the result on Troutswirl, The Haiku Foundation blog. The winner receives a copy of Montage: The Book, edited by Allan Burns. The contest runs from today to March 21, 2015. Good luck!
