Combining Pinterest’s visual nature with Instragam’s flexibility, free iOS app StagePage acts as a virtual concert scrapbook, letting you record and preserve event-related memories on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Presenting a high-tech alternative to yesterday’s shoeboxes, it aims to provide live music fans with a tool for creating colorful collages of photos, videos and playlists that can be preserved for posterity.
Using the application, concertgoers can create individualized pages dedicated to specific shows filled with multimedia montages, including pictures of ticket stubs, images from the event and filmed video recordings. Fans also enjoy the option to insert set lists and note concert dates, venues and location, as well as insert snapshots featuring friends who attended. Budding photojournalists may also choose to edit pictures and videos to enhance image quality or insert special effects via the program.
Capable of hosting a handful of images and capturing commentary and observations, the app is clearly designed with passionate music fans in mind. But even casual observers may appreciate the ability to save and organize concert material in a single location, rather than have to later sift through haphazard assortments of random smartphone grabs. Novelty value will inevitably prove fleeting but, unlike souvenirs from the merch table, this virtual stroll down memory lane won’t fray in the wash or cost a cent.
