Get A Behind the Scenes Look At Led Zeppelin’s Greatest Moments with Lead Zeppelin Live Dreams iPhone App
Live Dreams is an iPhone app for Led Zeppelin fans who want to get a behind the scenes look at the band’s greatest moments. From never-before-seen pictures of live concerts, to exclusive stories about the band members, this app will give you a fresh new insight into the world of one of the most influential bands in rock history.
The app’s main menu is split into six sections – Photographs, Outtakes, Cornerstones, The Journeys, Favorites, and about section where you can discover how all the band information was collected. Swiping across the screen cycles through the band member symbols which can then be tapped on to go into a particular section.
Under the Photographs section you’ll find 168 photos taken from live concerts during their tours around the world. Each photo contains details about the date the photo was taken, when it was taken, and a brief description. Some images also come with a voice narrative and an option to purchase a print version from the app’s website.
Additional concert pictures are shown in the Outtakes section which contains a collection of over 100 rare photos of the band members. Some of the pictures have been digitally restored from their original form so you can see what they look like according to today’s photography standards. Photos from both the Photographs and Outtakes section can be added to your favorite which gives you the ability to revisit them quickly whenever you use the app.
The Cornerstones section shows the band’s show highlights from 1972 to 1977. You can find out interesting information about some of the band’s most iconic songs such as No Quarter, Dazed & Confused, and Stairway to Heaven. Each of the cornerstones are accompanied by a long description and images from the shows taken by different people.
In The Journeys section you can read Laurence Ratner’s (author of the app and book entitled Led Zeppelin) personal experiences related to the various tours, events, and concerts documented in Live Dreams from 1972 to 1995. Every show he went to during that period is documented in a diary you can read to experience what going to the concert was like.
The app’s user interface is well designed which makes reading the information, and browsing through the pictures an intuitive process. However, it would be nice if there was a way to save the pictures to your device instead of just viewing them. In the about section you can also read about the inspiration behind the app’s design, photo specs, and notable collectors who contributed to the making of the app.
This is definitely a must have app for any Led Zeppelin fan and a great way to relive some of the band’s best moments. Live Dreams is compatible with iPhones iOS 4 or later and costs $3.99 from the app store.
