Built BY a metalhead FOR metalheads Heavy Headlines for iPhone, iPad - and now Apple Watch - is the BROOTAL one-stop destination for all of your metal news, new album release, and concert listing needs. To put it another way, I'm a big metal fan and much to my surprise there was just nothing in the app store that did what I was looking for - show me metal news and do it well. So as a professional app developer I took it upon myself to fill that void with the following design goals in mind:1. Make it simple, slick, and easy to use with a fun interface. It should "just work."2. Pack it with the innovative features of iOS and Apple devices that I would expect from a great app.3. Make it metal. Make it fun.Hopefully I've achieved that and more. Let me know in the reviews.Features:- Aggregates content from the world's top sources of metal news in one convenient app.- Innovative "Favorite Bands" feature figures out your favorite metal bands from your music library and then surfaces stories about them to the top of your feed. - Explore new metal releases and top selling albums and then purchase them from iTunes right through the app.- Now available on your Apple Watch!
