Woodstock iPad App Takes You Through The Music And Memories (PICTURES)

In 1969, peace, love and music flowed through the air of Woodstock, New York. In 2011, find the same groove -- on your iPad.

"On The Way To Woodstock" is a new iPad app that's part-app-part-interactive-book takes you through the era that ended in the legendary Woodstock Art and Music Fair of 1969. Running through the 1950s and 1960s, the app matches the history and culture of the period with the music that scored it.

955 Dreams co-founder Kiran Bellubbi called it "a book designed and created for the iPad."

The interactive timeline includes over a hundred rare photos, over 45 hours of video, and music (with links to purchase on iTunes), all played directly on the app, so that you can learn about the anti-war movement of the 1960s, listen to Janis Joplin sing "Work Me Lord" and watch clips of Santana play "Black Magic Woman."

The app, from 955 Dreams (which produced a "History of Jazz" app earlier this year), helps the user understand the culture of the times that produced such lasting music.

The app is available for purchase for $9.99 at the iTunes store. Also check out Push Pop Press' "Our Choice," which aims to reinvent the book as we know it.
