Embracing Mobile at Lollapalooza

Lollapalooza's new event app is a sign of things to come.

Embracing Mobile at Lollapaloozaby Mariam DaudiLollapalooza is one of the coolest music festivals around. The event got its start in 1991, when Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell created it as a farewell tour for his band. The premise of the event is to bring together dozens of musicians from different genres to create a three-day music experience across several different stages. Some of the musicians are well-known; some are not.

Musical Puzzle HD for iPad

image

Musical puzzle HD is, from what I have seen, a unique app for the iPad which combines the addictive fun of a jigsaw puzzle with classic songs.  Rather than moving pieces around to make a picture you have to touch the pieces to hear them play a sound which is just a second or two long.  You then place the pieces in order to make the full song.  This addicting game has many song options so you won’t get repeats and in my case I was very familiar with nearly every tune which was played. 



Major Update for Leading Guitar Apps

Several important new features have been added to the popular GuitarStudio and iShred apps, expanding upon the performance capabilities and flexibility that have made them favorites with iOS musicians the world over for the past three years.

With PAGES, it’s easy to expand the setup choices of guitar players who want to recreate all of the guitar parts of a song with the original chords, frets, and scales (up to 36 buttons). These expanded song performances can now be recorded, backed up, and even shared as single songs on AirPlay.

Note Goal Pro – App Review

image

Learning the piano has never been easy, but with app introductions such as Note Goal Pro; it makes learning the piano a lot more fun!  This app is able to teach about note placement, how to read music, and the definition of each note per key.  It’s very similar to taking piano lessons in your very own home, but without a piano; and seems to be just as efficient.  The only that is needed after you’ve mastered this app is an actual piano to practice with.
