The Beatles Now Appearing on Your iPhone

Metatron Inc. today announced that its i-Mobilize subsidiary has released five new Video Apps from The Beatles, John Lennon and George Harrison on the iPad, iPhone and iTouch platforms, under a license from Orbital Media Group. The titles are:

1. "The Journey," a look at the remarkable formation and ultimate rise of the world's first supergroup. Utilizing rare, archival footage, news reels and interviews, this program charts the Beatles' success and follows their careers through to the untimely deaths of John Lennon and George Harrison. The Beatles Journey features various conversations and filmed events that follow the group's relentless sweep through the musical boundaries of the world.

2. "Big Beat Box," a documentary about the rise of Beatlemania. The music includes an "imagined" performance of a lost John Lennon song.

3. "The Long and Winding Road," a five-part documentary on the history of the "Fab Four."

4. "John Lennon -- The Messenger" features audio tracks "In Spite of all the Dangers" and "In His Own Words," and rare footage to spotlight Lennon with his life prior to and beyond The Beatles.

5. "George Harrison -- The Quiet One," which looks at the life of the youngest member of the Beatles. The video explores his complex nature and his life journey with interviews with those that were close to him. Using rare film footage, it examines his time with the Beatles, his undoubted musical talent, and his long held spiritual beliefs that were a comfort to him until his untimely death at age 58. The title provides rare insight into the man of music in his own words.

Joe Riehl, CEO of Metatron Inc., said, "Beatles titles are some of the most popular media available and we are thrilled to be able to release these titles in conjunction with our friends at Orbital Media Group. We continue to work with them to broaden our relationship and hope to bring more incredible content like this to iTunes in the coming weeks."
