Now today we have another great application to tell you about that has just been released to the App Store. This Day in Pink Floyd is the first and only official application and lands on an iPhone near you now.

The application is being released in conjunction with their back catalog re-releases and has been officially been approved by the surviving members of the band. This Day in Pink Floyd 1.0 is available to download now for owners of the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Users are provided with information on the bands activities for every day of the year, which include studio recording dates, TV performances, album release dates and much more. Each day users are provided with two illustrative photographs or graphics that are chosen by the app at random, and can be expanded for greater clarity.

Users will also get hundreds of Pink Floyd trivia facts that are accompanied by a moving Dark Side Of The Moon graphic, and one of two classic guitar riffs.

Other features include song notes for every album that include detailed critique of every studio track and album. Users can also link and play any Pink Floyd track they have in their iTunes library from within the app. There is even an embedded video from the Point Me At The Sky single from 1968 and much more.

This Day in Pink Floyd 1.0 is available worldwide from the App Store for only $2.99/£1.99. iOS 4.0 or later required.
