Westminster Abbey cashes in on Royal Wedding with ... App

One for the Reg demographic

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Today, Prince William and Kate Middleton gave 'royal approval' to Abbey 3D, an app that offers a tour of Westminster Abbey in 3D, even showing users areas that are off-limit on Wedding Day. Bless.

There's also a photo gallery of previous weddings as well as biographies of those involved, not to mention the regular updates and behind-the-scenes information. Here's a pretty dull video of it in action.

According to The Mirror, "millions will be able to download Abbey 3D". Millions can also buy souvenir sick bags, which are selling out worldwide. I know which I'd find more useful. Then again, the app is certainly more tasteful than a range of royal condoms that encourage a user to "lie back and think of England".

Abbey 3D costs £3 and can be picked up through the royal wedding website. It will be available for Android through the Android Market and for iDevices when it hits the App store soon.

More than a third of all profits will be split between 26 charities as chosen by the royal couple.

Feel free to hit the comments section and let us know any strange memorabilia you've come across, or in, perhaps. Ooh er. ®
