New MUSIC App for iPad
Thu, 04 Nov 2010 11:39:01
There is a new MUSIC app from Andrew Zuckerman, a first-of-its-kind book extension designed exclusively for the iPad. The MUSIC app, like the Zuckerman book it is based on, features stunning portraits and interviews with more than 50 musical legends, including Ozzy Osbourne, Yoko Ono, John Legend, Lenny Kravitz, Common, Trey Anastasio, Ravi Shankar, Itzhak Perlman and Fiona Apple.
The app enhances the experience by including 3-to-7-minute films for each of the artists, along with the option to organize the entire text thematically, and the ability to share text and thus creating a truly multi-dimensional experience and bringing the idea of portraiture to a new level. This is how you have fun with your iPad.
A video preview of the app is available here. You can get the app here.
"Because different people have different ways of enjoying media, we've created the MUSIC app to give the user the ability to choose how they want to experience this monumental and comprehensive project," Zuckerman says. "Art books have stunning images and beautiful layout, but their size and weight can often leave them sitting on bookshelves and coffee tables. An e-book may be portable, but it's simply text, and e-readers were not designed to present the content and complexities of an art or photo book. The MUSIC app was created to fill this gap and integrates all media -- text, audio and video."
