More Than Music

More Than Music

Dependency (www.dependencysoftware.com) have just released More Than Music - the media player specifically designed for language students.

It gives you more control over the playback of audio, video and images (slideshows).

You still copy your audio and video to your phone using iTunes, just like you always did. But now you can playback your audio and video slower for easier comprehension, or faster to push yourself a bit.

Or backup and replay the last 10 seconds again with a simple swipe of your thumb.

Make playlists of videos as well as audio, and play them in order or shuffled whenever you want.

Playback can be controlled by buttons or a few simple gestures so you can do it all one handed while you take notes with the other.

Skullcandy's Crusher Over-Ear Headphones: Guaranteed to Rattle Your Bones [Review]

image

If you're a music lover or an iOS gamer, you already get this, but it's hard to appreciate the full scope and flavor of our media when relying solely on our iOS device's speakers. Even if the extent of your media consumption on your iPhone or iPad (or laptop or desktop) doesn't stray beyond watching movies and videos, you'll have to admit, the in-built speakers these gadgets come with don't necessarily broadcast the most stellar audio. For crystal clear, pristine sound reproduction we have to look to the world of headphones and external speakers. With that in mind I'm always on the lookout for great headphones and speakers to share with iPhone Lifers. This week we'll be taking a look at Skullcandy’s Crusher over-ear headphones ($99.99).
