John would have loved this!

Beatle Ed from Oxford, UK

Wow! This app is beautifully designed with clever interactive ideas. It takes you to the heart of John's trip to Bermuda in summer of 1980, when he was inspired to right a number of songs that appeared on his last album, Double Fantasy. You can hear interviews whilst viewing photos, tour parts of the island and click on a cassette tape player to hear DF demos. If John was alive he would have dug this!!

( Just Like ) Starting Over....and over.....and over again


Hey what a great app, the last summer of John on tape and some good insight for his last album. There is demo tapesas well as some interactive play, and how the B52's play a part in this app. A great app for any Lennon fan, and worth every penny.

Bermuda Tapes


A great insight into John,s song writing skills for this period in his life.

A must for John Lennon fans.

A great app with one slight problem. My version only works one way up. It doesn't respond to screen rotation.
