Today sees the launch of dunhill's DAY 8 ipad app. How to describe it? It's not that easy to pigeon-hole, but in short, it's a carefully-selected showcase of short films, articles and photo galleries exploring the world around us - and it's a great place to get lost in for a while.

Themed around the subjects of creativity, elegance, travel, culture and intelligence, stand-out highlights include photographer Matthieu Paley's portfolio on Asian mountain tribes (which look incredible on the hi-res ipad screen), the visual story behind Johnny Cash's last music video, and a behind-the-scenes film (above) on illustrator Chris Dent's commission for a one-off piece of art. The resulting app is intuitive and intricately-sourced but we'll stop trying to describe it - see it for yourself at, or download it for free at the app store
