Unofficial Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit iPhone application released

A new iPhone application has been released that aims to help users find hidden songs on Universal Studios Orlando's Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit rollercoaster.

The coaster, which opened in August, allows guests to select their own soundtrack using iPod-like devices mounted to the ride's trains. The standard song list features 30 tracks in 5 genres, but dozens of hidden tracks have since been discovered.

The hidden tracks are accessed by pushing and holding the Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit logo for 8-10 seconds. This brings up a numbered touchpad, allowing users to pick from tracks 001-999. The new iPhone app, known as The Pocket RockIt Rollercoaster Setlist, aims to build an accurate listing of these tracks.

The unofficial iPhone application allows users to browse the song list by title, artist and genre. Users can rate and rank the songs, with the ratings synchronised with those others to produce a master list. If a user discovers a new song, it can be submitted to the master list.

The application was developed by Dead Parrot Software, and is available from Apple's iTunes App Store at cost of $0.99.

It would worry me that I wouldn't have enough time to select a track before it automatically selected one for me!
I bet it would be great for those budding riders who have tried all the songs already!!
