The Ramsgate Hovercraft releases smartphone app

The new Hovercraft app creates a unique personal musical experience by tracking your GPS location. The app contains around nine hours of new, original Hovercraft loops. Each loop is tagged with a location somewhere in Ramsgate so that as you approach it becomes louder and as you get further away it becomes quieter and disappears – so as you walk around Ramsgate you are accompanied by a brand-new, ever-changing Hovercraft mix.

For the next week the app is free in celebration of the Ramsgate Festival of Sound. Currently only available for Android, you can find it on Amazon Appstore. An iPhone version of the app is expected to be ready in two to three months.
