PLANET OF THE APPS: 24TH JULY 2012
Tech expert Stuart Dredge highlights some of this week's best apps...
The Blur App (iPhone / iPad)
To celebrate Blur's latest reunion and gigs, EMI has launched an iPhone and iPad app celebrating the band's 21-year career. It's not just marketing bumph though - there is lots of exclusive music, remixes and interviews, along with a big gigography (including setlists) from the early days to now.
Passion Pit: Gossamer (iPhone / iPad)
The man who worked with Bjork on her Biophilia apps, Scott Snibbe, has a new collaboration with Passion Pit. It's more interactive music videos, this time for two songs off their new album Gossamer, as well as fun remix tools to make your own versions of the songs.
Tom Hanks' Electric City (Android / iPhone / iPad)
Tom Hanks' latest project isn't in the cinema: it's online and on smartphones and tablets. Electric City is an animated web series which is being distributed entirely digitally. The apps came out last week, and include additional stuff as well as the basic episodes.
