Apple's App Store: Counting Success by the Numbers
Apple's App Store has just hit yet another astonishing milestone: As of January 15, the number of apps downloaded from the App Store exceeded 500 million. That's an increase of 60 percent from Dec.
FMScreen is Frequency Modulation on the Cheap
A couple of months ago, I was given the opportunity to review a number of synth apps for the iPhone. In that round-up, I took a look at noise.io pro, one of the deepest and richest apps I've come across.
When It's Time for the Perfect Rhyme, Keep this App Nearby
Are you a dietician but aspire to be a musican? When you rap do people tell you it's crap?
Then it's time for Perfect Rhyme.
AliMusic's Perfect Rhyme is a dictionary for musicans, poets and people like Muhammed Ali, who need to rhyme from time to time without making it a crime.
FourTrack is a Big Step in iPhone Music Production.
When developer Sonoma Wire Works set out to create a multi-track recorder for the iPhone, they enlisted the help of Retronyms, creators of the best selling Recorder iPhone app. Together they built FourTrack, the closest anyone has gotten to creating a rich-featured, studio-quality multi-track recording app for the iPhone.
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.
Pocket Tunes Radio is Number One with a Bullet
NormSoft's Pocket Tunes Radio is a slick app that puts hundreds of Internet radio stations on your iPhone and iPod touch. Pocket Tunes Radio comes with an extensive list of pre-loaded stations — organized by every music genre you can think of.
Wunder Radio Connects to Radio Waves from Around the World
Joseph Campbell once said you can tell a lot about a city by its tallest building. I'd like to think you can deduce a few things about a place by its local radio stations as well — which is why I'm utterly fascinated with Wunder Radio, the latest release from the folks at Weather Underground.
7 Chords is a Chord Book in Your Pocket
7 Chords is an iPhone app designed for both beginner and intermediate guitarists. Through a remarkable easy-to-use interface, the user can select what chord's information to display on the screen.
Harmonica is as Close as you'll get to the Real Deal
Harmonica is a little app created by Benjamin McDowell, developed in the same vein as Ocarina. It's designed to be used like a real harmonica.
Just like the real thing, you place the iPhone in your mouth and slide from side to side to play notes.
DigiDrummer Shines in Perfect 10 Performance
Until now, I hadn't been convinced that the iPhone stood a chance at being a legitimate replacement for any music production hardware or software. It seems I've been wrong all along. DigiDrummer from Magnick Software is quite simply the greatest drum machine for the iPhone to date.
iDrum Ministry of Sound Runs out of Steam too Soon
iDrum: Ministry of Sound, from developer iZotope, is a neat little app that lets you recreate the feel of your favorite beats from different genres. The iDrum series in three different flavors, Club, Hip Hop and the version we're reviewing here featuring unique and original samples from Ministry of Sound.
Drum Kit Rolls but It Doesn't Rock
If you're easily amused, you'll like the Drum Kit app from CrimsonJet. It's a six-piece drum kit that you can play using your thumbs.
Tap the snare, bass drum, cymbals to pound out a beat. Choose from among four flavors of sound: classic, rock, hip hop and techno.
Tap Tap Revenge - Guitar Hero at Your Finger Tips
If you've played any of the Guitar Hero games, then you will be no stranger to the gameplay of Tap Tap Revenge by Tapulous. Even though it’s not as interactive as Guitar Hero it's very entertaining and the weekly downloadable songs keep the app fresh.
FingerPiano takes you from hopeless fan to piano man.
Having recently toyed around with the MiniPiano app from JYProduct, I couldn't help but think that there was a little something missing from the formula. Don't get me wrong, sliding your fingers across piano keys is great fun, but I felt like there was no objective, no aim, no goal.
