I recently took a vacation in Hong Kong with my family and I was pretty excited to check out the iPhone scene over there. There were several Chinese-language magazines that covered only iPhone and iPad related stuff, but what caught my eye was this magazine called ‘iPhone’. I bought the magazine and snapped a photo of the cover here.
If you were wondering, like me, how the lady sitting on the sports car could be related to the iPhone scene, I can tell you: “Plenty!”.
You want to play an instrument, or compose music for your new app or a YouTube trailer, or maybe just because--but, problem is you know little or nothing about music in general, the keyboard, synth or piano especially. SoundPrism can help! Seriously, this app makes it difficult to not make decent sounds come out of your device!!
Have to post up on 3 apps I am enjoying on the iPad (and iPod touch) this week. I admit I have finally succumbed, and am now drinking the iPad Kool-Aid. The iPod touch screen was too small for eBook reads. Anyway, wanted to showcase 2 games and an excellent sound composition app am checking out this week. Flap Flap, forwards the weirdly addictive bird saga of other games like Tiny Wings--with a decidedly more platform feel...
The makers of SoundHound have just released Hound (free), which lets you do a search just by speaking the song name, artist, or band. The app then gives you access to song previews, lyrics, album art, videos, artist bios, album info, tour dates, and more.
The basics of managing music with iTunes and your iPhone, iPod or iPad
Apple's first slogan for iTunes was "Rip. Mix. Burn." It succinctly listed the three tasks the software performed: rip audio tracks from CDs into MP3s, store them on a computer where users can create their own mixes, and burn them to a CD. Previous articles about iTunes have explored some of the more advanced features of Apple's powerful and complex software, from managing iOS devices and apps to obtaining iTunes University content. iTunes has been around for 10 years, and most long-time Mac users are familiar with using it to manage their music library.
