Psyclops Dance Mixer Animates Characters to Custom Sound
Psyclops Dance Mixer is a creative music app that lets users drag and drop pre-recorded tracks into a music mixer to create customized songs and then pair their music with an animated dancer to create a simple video. While my musical abilities consist of reading sheet music and playing the piano, I have very little experience with music-making software and so Psyclops Dance Mixer was a bit of a unique test run for me.
Tune In Anywhere with Public Radio Tuner
Public Radio Tuner - I love public radio. When I drove all over New York State for one of my jobs, I got addicted. Hearing Nina Totenberg’s voice come over the airwaves made me feel like I was in the room with a good friend and not 200 miles from home.

SaxMan Falls Flat — App Fails to Deliver on Description
What can I say about SaxMan, from Yudo Games, except that it really blows.

Bebot Chirps Its Way Into Your Heart
The App Store is flooded with a number of inexpensive apps that serve a very specific purpose. A prime example is Bebot, a "Robot Voice Synthesizer." I have to say, I did not have very high expectations for Bebot, mostly because I didn't see the utility of the app.
iTurn is a Dead End
There isn't much to say about iTurn. It does what it claims, sort of, but iTurn is just too simple an app without enough options or controls to keep it interesting.
After loading iTurn, you're presented with a turntable interface, with the only feature being a volume knob.
