The 2.0 version of this free, auto-updating app brings a compelling new magazine experience to your tablet, including exclusive app-only content.

Here’s a sneak preview of the exclusive content you’ll only find on this latest tablet edition of STIR:
  • 343 Dresses: The Chromatic Convergence Project. Los Angeles artist Mary Younakof stitched 343 identical dresses, in 49 shades of seven different colors, so she could wear a different color every day for 343 days. Younakof’s photographs and video chronicle the interplay between her garments and the city’s colorful urban landscape.
  • Renaissance on Route 66. A crumbling, abandoned hotel in Tulsa, Okla., was brought back to life, thanks to the talents of local interior designers. The Campbell Hotel, a historic property built in 1927 as a stop for traveling salesmen, was chosen as the venue for the city’s 2011 Designer Showcase to benefit the Foundation for Tulsa Schools. With few limits on their creative freedom, designers were able to make each room distinct.
  • A Color Tour of Turkey. The deep blues of intricate Iznik tiles, the azure seas of the Turquoise Riviera, the golden gleam of Byzantine mosaics and the earthy hues of Istanbul’s Spice Bazaar have inspired travelers, conquerors, artists and artisans for centuries. Discover the extraordinary spectrum that spans the colors and cultures of Europe and Asia.

Best of all, the newest version of the STIR tablet app continues to deliver the features and functionality you’ve come to count on. Find more stunning interactive slideshows, more designer interviews and detailed project features, and more behind-the-scenes project videos and interviews with Color Spy personalities. And you can still explore color by family, get product specs, and access RGB values and LRV numbers.
