The iPhone app for Music Lovers

image

The iPhone is all about simplifying tasks. Now, with the help of the iConcertCal app, that is exactly what the iPhone does for concert goers and music lovers.

The iConcertCal app locates concerts in your area or anywhere else in the U.S. for that matter. It uses your iTunes library to learn which musicians you like and then displays when and where those artists are playing.

Once you find a concert you want to attend, you can buy tickets to the show right from your iPhone, email your friends to let them know about it, and get directions to the event.

Apps from a trash collector, waiter, and magician

image

Everybody's getting into app development these days. What if you're a trash collector and you have a great idea for an app that lets people get help for their problems? Rob Shoesmith was that trash collector (though called a "bin man" in the U.K., where he lives). He took his idea to the MEDL Mobile's App Incubator, and it was one of 8 out of 12,000 proposed apps that were selected for development. You can see an entertaining video of Rob on his website.

Ever wanted to watch WMV (TV) streams on your iPhone? Now you can!

image

In my article on playing back (among other formats like DivX, XviD, Flash etc.) WMV files on the iPhone (see the 08/11/2009, 0:50 CET UPDATE), I’ve already mentioned there hasn’t been any way of playing back WMV streams – that is, the most widely used format for live TV broadcasts (netTV, the TV streaming app, doesn’t support and Sling does require Sling player hardware at home). Up to now, that is.

Enter the AppStore program Streamer.

Getting Things Done on the iPhone

         When Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone at MacWorld on January 9, 2007 he called it “an iPod, a phone, an internet mobile communicator” – three devices in one. The subsequent evolution of the iPhone into a computing platform with the launch of the app store a year and a half later meant the functions an iPhone could perform were limited only by developer’s imagination. There are many excellent apps that enable you to track the news, sports, the weather, or find restaurants, movies, your friends (and even public bathrooms), play games or listen to music. And there are many not so excellent apps; I am talking about you, iFart.
