British Music Experience launches history and quiz app
The British Music Experience has launched a free iPhone and iPad app offering users the chance to explore the history of the UK’s popular music culture.
It includes interactive maps, day-by-day event almanacs and a multi-difficulty quiz section where users can test your own knowledge.
The app has been launched by Britain’s museum of popular music, based in the O2 in London.
Users can select locations across the UK and discover what happened nearby in music history, including births, deaths and burials, famous album cover photos, festivals and other landmarks.
The On This Day section provides details of events across five decades of cultural development, illustrated with over 500 images.
The British Music Quiz offers challenges from the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s, with selectable questions ranging from easy to difficult.
Additional sections include a what’s-on guide to the O2 museum, videos and a guide to who was born when so users can find out which big names share their birthday.
The British Music Experience app is available free for iOS devices via iTunes.
