Following last year’s announcement of an app for Android, The Ramsgate Hovercraft has released an iPhone version of the same app.
The app, which only works in Ramsgate, UK, is loaded with loops specially created by the band, which are played back as you wander round Ramsgate. The app uses your phone’s GPS location to decide which loops to play and how to mix them so you hear a constantly changing soundscape unique to your journey through Ramsgate.
The app requires an iPhone 6 or later and around 500MB of free space.
Go to Apple App Store (or Amazon Appstore for Android) and search for “The Hovercraft Experience”.
Here is a short preview of the app in action:
