David Bowie is App Description

“David Bowie is” is an adaptation for iPhone of the blockbuster exhibition that originated in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum in 2013 and toured the world for five years to record-breaking attendance and international acclaim. This augmented reality exhibition tells the story of Bowie’s life and career through costumes, videos, photography, drawings, storyboards, music scores, handwritten lyrics, letters, and diary entries. It displays over 400 items from the iconic exhibition in a sequence of 25 newly designed virtual exhibition rooms, with many never before seen items. No headsets required, all you need for the best experience is a pair of headphones. "David Bowie is...the freakiest show on your smartphone." - The Guardian “Extraordinary stage costumes, inspired handwritten lyrics, production notes, diary entries, and music videos bring the 'artistic diversity' of David Bowie's legendary career into focus.” - CNET David Bowie is includes: • 56 Costumes • 38 Songs • 23 Music Videos and live performances • 60 Original lyric sheets and design notes • 50 Photos • 33 Drawings and sketches • 7 Paintings (that’s right, he painted too) Each digitally scanned item can be inspected in astonishing detail at the viewer’s leisure, in their own environment, with no crowds or glass separating them from the intimate artifacts of one of the most influential artists in popular cultural history. - More praise for David Bowie is - "David Bowie Is… could have been overwhelming, but instead it felt like a vessel of his spirit." - Pitchfork “If you loved Bowie in a manner that could not be reasonably described as casual, grabbing the app will be the best $7.99 you’ve ever spent.” - Buffalo News "The David Bowie AR app conjures the sense of a present absence." - GQ “Here is augmented reality with a soul.” - Hypebot - Compatibility - For iPhones 6S, iPad 2017, iPad Pro and later models running iOS 11 and later. You do not need a VR headset to view this exhibition. Only your iPhone and headphones. - Privacy, Safety, and Support - This app requires access to your device's camera and microphone in order to use augmented reality. However, no personal data is recorded or saved, your privacy is 100% guaranteed.

Taking breaks will help reduce this heat buildup. This app also streams a significant amount of data to your phone, so be sure to connect to a strong wifi network if available.

    Went to see Bowie Is at the Brooklyn Museum. If you weren’t able to attend the exhibition, this is a must app. I love this app
  • David Bowie Lives

    By Etch-A-Sketch Girl
    Even after he is gone, he lives on! This app is awesome! Such a great idea and a wonderful way for his legacy to continue. Amazing way for his fans to feel connected. Thank you creators, Iman and family, estate and the Man himself for this app. David Bowie rocks! ❤️

    5 minutes in and I’m overjoyed at my purchase. Worth the price. Happy Birthday David - we miss you!
  • Brilliant

    By BARose76
    One of the best virtual tour experiences ever. Brilliantly put together, and easy to navigate.
  • Let down by AR interface

    By Ukbaums
    Content is outstanding, of course, but please add a way of navigating it without the AR. The novelty subtracts more than it adds and all the pinching, zooming and panning gets frustrating. I just want to click on objects and have them fill my screen. As someone who saw the exhibition at both its first and last stops, I’m disappointed that the app so far is more trouble than it should be.
  • David Bowie is...

    By _Bill_F_
    ...in my kitchen. In all seriousness, he doesn’t get as much credit as he’s due for being a forerunner of online artist/fan engagement. This app does the great man credit, because somehow he still is.
  • This app really does the exhibit justice

    By MissFriend
    Exploring this app has been so much fun. Having the chance to click around, look at things close up, and interact with the pieces is awesome! I saw the exhibit at the MCA in Chicago a few years ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Now I have it in my home any time I want to see it!
  • Mind blowing

    By MakenzieLove
    Absolutely incredible. Like you’re actually there. Love and miss you always David.
  • Anyone who wants to relive the exhibit

    By jbtrainor
    This gives us the amazing ability to get up-close and spend time noticing every detail from the best of the exhibit. A must have for any fan.
  • I’m back at the museum

    By RDGdenver
    After seeing the exhibit twice, both in Berlin and Brooklyn, this app is exactly what I was waiting for! If there were any areas you felt you were rushed, or areas you really loved, you’ll feel you’re back at the museum! It’s an absolute *must* for any Bowie fan - I’m re-immersed in the entire experience, from costumes and photos to the music and videos. If this is your first dive into the exhibit, you’ll be swimming, “like the dolphins can swim!”
