To celebrate Jerry Garcia’s birthday on August 1st, the audio chapter from the iPhone/iPod Touch application, You Can’t Always Get What You Want: My Life with the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead and other wonderful reprobates by Sam Cutler (Expanded Books/Apps/Ironic Apps) titled “Garcia” and read by the author is available as a free download. In further celebration of his birthday, the iTunes app is available for half price ($4.99) for the month of August. This Expanded Book™ is a magnificent account of the life and times of Sam Cutler with the Rolling Stones, then the Grateful Dead in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
The Cutler iPhone application contains the full audiobook synchronized with the text, video links author interviews and concert clips, and more than 30 photos, (some exclusive to the app). With this Expanded Book™ developed by Expanded Apps, Inc., in association with Ironic Apps, readers can simultaneously follow the words on the screen and listen as Sam Cutler recounts his amazing life with the Stones and Grateful Dead.
Rock fans and tech geeks alike have been vociferous in their praise for the app, "This app is great, got me through a long plane ride, I didn't want to get off the plane!....[and] I don't like reading!” says Schoeps in an iTunes user review. Andy Boxall, a reviewer for iPhoneFreak, says You Can’t Always Get What You Want’s app is “an intriguing step in a relatively new direction.” In a five-star iTunes review, user Earl C Grey stated “The [app’s] videos are first-class. The video of the Altamont murder is chilling. The photos are pure Art-Rock. I loved this app."
“As an author, I want to reach readers everywhere and this iPhone app lets them experience my book in a way that was never before possible,” explains Sam Cutler.
