iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Beatles Reimagined, by Adage Group, is a free app aimed at connecting Beatles fans through a centralized mobile platform. Released around the same time as the release of the Beatles Reimagined album, this app seeks to bring a sense of community to the album’s listeners. (Beatles Reimagined is an album featuring some of the Beatles’ songs re-done by modern artists in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1963-64 Beatle’s songs.)
Fans of the Beatles Reimagined Album will most likely be excited about the features of this accompanying app. The app basically provides what an easy-to-navigate, portable “about the album” website would.
With quick clips of each of the songs on the album (as well as direct links to allow users to purchase those songs), those unfamiliar with the Beatles Reimagined project can still enjoy the app while also educating themselves about the project.
In addition to these quick clips of the songs, Beatles Reimagined also features artist biographies for the musicians who contributed to the project; these musicians range from somewhat lesser known artists to “big names” like Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Music videos are also featured in the app, and the opportunity to comment/discuss one’s thoughts on the entire Beatles Reimagined album/project is also an option.
Appearance and Layout:
The appearance of Beatles Reimagined shouldn’t leave fans with any complaints, and the layout of the app should be equally well-received.
The app is easy to navigate with a very clean interface, and first-time users should easily be able to find their way through the app to enjoy its various features.
Graphically speaking, the most impressive part of the app is probably the beetle featured as the opening screen of the app; however, users should still enjoy the clean layout throughout the rest of the app as well.
“Graphics” for much of the rest of the app is simply left to pictures of the contributing artists, and this decision serves well the overall purpose of the app.
Beatles Reimagined is a completely free app (although there is still a price for any songs purchased through the app). As such, the “price” of Beatles Reimagined should leave fans with no complaints.
Additionally, since this app is completely free to use, anyone unfamiliar with the Beatles Reimagined album/project can easily use the app to educate himself on this creative music project.
Beatles Reimagined requires iOS 5.1 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
