McCartney in new app for android smartphones

Paul McCartney's performance of "Live and Let Die" from the concert at Candlestick Park is a featured preview in a new app.
Here's the blurb: "Experience musical legend and visionary Sir Paul McCartney performing "Live and Let Die" in 360 degrees, with stereo 3D and immersive audio in Jaunt's first publicly released cinematic VR experience. Requires a recent 5" or 6" phone and a Google Cardboard virtual reality viewer."

We tried to get it to work with our Samsung Galaxy tab, but no luck. Soon to be available for Rift on Macs and Windows PCs, though.

McCartney's Facebook publicity said: "Paul has partnered with Jaunt to allow fans to watch 'Live and Let Die' in an immersive 360-degree virtual environment at his recent Candlestick Park concert. The app puts you right in the crowd, onstage, backstage, or even right by Paul’s side in the midst of the song's climactic pyro!"

Nice to see a Beatle featured in an app that isn't solely for IOS, though.
