It's perhaps a little late to the world of apps, but the Guggenheim Museum's very first app probably couldn't have come at a better time.
It's an app that works well for users either at the museum or away from it interested in the “Maurizio Cattelan: All” retrospective now on display.
Catellan decided he wanted to show off his 100-plus piece collection of works by hanging them all from the Guggenheim's ceiling like a giant mobile. Even if you're there, it's tough to get close up and get more information on any one particular piece. The app allows you to move around the hanging objects and then click on them to learn more about it.
There are also videos explaining how this exhibit was put together, as well as interviews with people who give some perspective on what it's like to work with Cattelan.
The "Maurizio Cattelan: All” app is available for iOS and Android devices. It's $3.99 for phones, $5.99 for tablets.
This is for big music fans who care not just about music, but the story behind it.
Called “eMusic Scenes,” there are 18 different historic music scenes included, from Detroit soul to New York City bebop to London pub to Atlanta hip hop.
Once you launch a scene, you hear clips of music from that era as you click through a timeline of key events and artists that made the era a pivotal point in music history.
There are also videos of performances, and for eMusic members who register for free, there are also internet radio stations that correspond with the scene you're in. You can also recommend future scenes you'd like to see represented.
“eMusic Scenes” is just an iPad app, and it's free.
