iPad App News: Sting launches 'appumentary' scrapbook

Ageing music deity Sting has marked a quarter century of going solo with a new breed of iPad app, featuring a host of exclusive contend. It's a free download too.

Rock icon Sting has launched a digital scrapbook to commemorate 25 years as a solo performer, complete with a host of interviews, live video performances and memorabilia spanning his career.

The Sting 25 app, which is free to download from the Apple App Store is the first "Appumentary" of its kind, which the 60-year-old rocker describes as his "digital rebirth."

The app features footage from his 60th birthday concert, which included performances from Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder and you'll be able to listen Sting songs on your iPad's music library while browsing the app.

Beyond that, the app is a treasure trove for long-time fans of the Englishman in New York singer. There's handwritten lyrics, journal entries, and the chance to check out Sting's signature instruments in interactive 360-degree galleries.

At the launch event earlier this week, Sting dedicated the app to late Apple visionary Steve Jobs saying "In some way he's created our future." Sting added that the app was free because "we don't know how much its worth."

The app will surely see a host of copycat apps from other aging rockers looking to brag about their humanitarian charity work, while providing links to their iTunes libraries.
