New App Promising to Save Concerts From Cellphones
It's been widely acknowledged that filming concerts with your cellphone is a rude thing to do, but on the other hand, that's how many epic moments are captured, like Metallica performing a surprise "Kill 'Em All" gig or Geoff Tate spitting at his bandmates.

So a new app has been developed in an attempt to make peace between the performer, the crowd, and the amateur film-maker. It's called Kimd and it brings a few simple, yet hopefully effective adjustments.

What the app does is dimming the device's luminosity to 10% and displays "a black veil with a 30% opacity on top of the screen." This way, the phone is less striking and annoying to the surrounding.

Proving how a mere phone can drive a man over the edge, Peter Frampton recently chucked a fan's device into the air after repeated requests to stop filming. The fan was reportedly so annoying that the rest of the crowd cheered at Frampton's decision. He pointed at this article as an appropriate explanation.

But let's focus on the app here - check out the promo video below and let us know if you think this actually might work.
