If you’re looking to purchase an album, you can head on over to a local record store or you can buy a digital copy by heading on over to services like iTunes. However interestingly enough, there have been artists who have started to release their albums in the form of apps, making it a more interactive experience.
Well if you’re a fan of Paul McCartney, you might be interested to learn that the musician has recently released five of his albums which were from his solo career as apps. They are priced at $7.99 each and this actually makes them cheaper than the iTunes version which costs $9.99 per album.
What makes it even better is that the apps are interactive and actually comes with additional content, such as archival video footage, photos, interviews, and remastered audio tracks. Of course this kind of disrupts the way we listen to music, which is through the Music app instead of having to launch individual apps, but if you want to save money and get more bang for your buck, perhaps the apps could be worth checking out.
Of course we guess the downside to downloading and purchasing albums as apps is that you don’t get access to the song itself. If you were to purchase a song on iTunes, you would be able to listen to it on your computer, your phone, your tablet, and so on, while an album app pretty much limits you to your mobile device.
