[prMac.com] Budapest, Hungary - Viki & Joe Software has released the freshly updated The Internationale 1.2, for iPhone and iPod touch devices for free. The Internationle is an educational application that contains a complete coverage about this radical song.
The Internationale for iPhone is all about the emotionally charged anthem of the left, which has been sung in hundreds of languages around the word as a song of hope and change.
For educational reinforcement, The Internationale is a sophisticated mobile learning tool, which gives the ability to experience the music, lyrics, story and the score in 6 different languages.
The Internationale is the international song of both Marxist and non-Marxist socialist parties. It was written in French by Eugene Pottier, a woodworker from Lille, after the fall of the Paris Commune of 1871, and set to music by P. Degeyter. The "Internationale" referred to is the International Working Men's Association, the so-called First International (1864-76), part of which had supported the Commune. It has been used across the world as a song of resistance to oppression. Perhaps its most dramatic use in recent years was its repeated singing by the students in Tiananmen Square in 1989 - although, curiously, the western press did not comment on this.
