Here’s some news that should be music to the ears of iPad owning Rolling Stones fans. The This Day in The Rolling Stones app for iPad and iPhone has now gone free, for good.
The popular app used to go for $2.99 and is going free, forever, to help celebrate a certain Mr. Jagger’s 70th birthday this summer.
Like all of the This Day in Music apps, this app is fun, entertaining, and full of cool content – and in this case chock full of Stones history:
• ENTRIES FOR EVERY DAY – 366 days of the year: Info on all the gigs, tours, TV appearances, recording dates, events, chart positions, album releases and more!
• IN DEPTH SONG NOTES for 15 Classic Stones albums, from the band’s debut in 1964, to the classic Beggars Banquet, Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main Street, Some Girls, and more – right through to the current hits release GRRR!
More than 200 Stones songs dissected: the sessions, who played what, and the stories behind the Stones’ amazing legacy.
• More than 300 Rolling Stones Quiz questions, scored out of 10 as you go.
• More than 300 Stones Trivia facts – scroll through the band’s history.
• Free wallpaper – 2 classic Stones images, licensed from photo library Getty Images for your enjoyment.

I’m only surprised there’s no mention of guaranteed updates for the next 20 years while Mick and the lads keep touring.
