Sting Creates Free Tribute App To Steve Jobs

Sting Free App - Sting has created a free app for the Apple iPad, which pays homage to Steve Jobs.

On Monday, the singer launched the app that paid tribute to his 25-year solo career called STING 25. The launch took place at the Apple store in New York’s Upper West Side.

As a solo musician and member of The Police, Sting has received sixteen Grammy Awards for his work, receiving his first Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 1981, and several Oscar nominations for Best Original Song. He is a member of both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

According to ABC News, Sting’s app includes four hours of music videos, concert footage, and interviews, which serves as a sort of digital documentary of his successful career.

The singer also explained why there is no price tag to obtain the app. It’s free “because we don’t know how much it’s worth,” he said.

Other footage included is performances from Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder and Lady Gaga from his 60th birthday party-concert last month at New York’s Beacon Theatre. USA Today reports that Sting performed a couple of songs at the launch, one in particular that he dedicated to Steve Jobs called “Fragile.”

“I’m sorry he is not here,” he said of Jobs. “In some way he’s created our future.”
