What's New in Version 1.2
+ Content updates
+ Bug fixes
This app exemplifies everything that an iPad application can (and should) be! It's incredibly easy to navigate and use, very intuitive, has high quality photos, fonts and graphics, and is beautifully constructed. You can tell the developers really both did their homework, and truly care about not only getting an app into the store, but are really in touch with what an app could and should be. Not only do I love the era and the whole experience surrounding the Woodstock experience, going through this app takes me back to that incredible time of love, sex, drugs and (most of all) Rock n Roll.
Buy it - you won't be disappointed!
It's Dope! Stands up to the test of time.
I downloaded this app when it first came out. Today, several years later it's design still looks fresh and feels engaging. It's nice to see external content played in situ and still feel like it's part of the app experience--even seeing the set lists connected to the option to buy songs (when you click 'buy' you do end up going to the iTunes Store app). I haven't found a better look and feel for a timeline, scrapbook or journaling app. It's one of my top fave apps of all categories!
Very few Woodstock performance videos
Though I agree that this app is well thought out and nicely constructed - I should have known that actual Woodstock performance videos would be limited. For someone who was only 16 at the time and wanted to be there - I was hoping this app would focus mostly on the performances and give me a better feel for what was seen and heard that weekend. I'm sure there are copyright issues :( so just be wary of what you are expecting.
