Posted: October 30, 2011 in All Categories, Apps


Apps may have started out as mere instruments of consumption – simple programs or casual games for tablets and smartphones. But, of late, these offerings have grown rather complex, and to such an extent that the music industry, for one, swears by them.

In fact, Bjork, an artist who has always pushed the envelope when it comes to her oeuvre, has released her latest music album ‘Biophilia’ in the form of an ‘appbox’. “It’s a fusion of nature, songs and an app suite for the iPad,” she says.

The Biophilia ‘appbox’ comprises ten individual apps. In addition to the songs, each app also includes animation, games, scrolls of lyric sheets and an academic essay about each composition written by musicologist Nikki Dibben. Here are some popular music apps I am aware of not to be rated since each one of them are good in there own ways.
