iTunes Subscription In the Works?

image

Ever since Apple bought Beats there has been speculation that they would offer an Apple-branded music subscription service. Now Apple Insider is reporting that tucked away in some new updates to the iTunes desktop client, there are references to an iTunes subscription. This doesn't appear to be a reference to iTunes Match which has been around for a few years. Such a subscription service is expected to be strictly for songs, as the text reads "iTunes Subscription: You can save songs for offline use and download purchases from iCloud on up to 5 devices."

While the upcoming release of iOS 7 was perhaps the biggest news at Apple's keynote at WWDC 2013 today, the company also announced the fall release of iTunes Radio, a long-rumored streaming music service similar to Pandora. The new service, which will be free for U.S. users with text and audio ads, and free without ads for iTunes Match subscribers, boasts access to the entire iTunes catalog, which includes over 26 million tracks.

Bring a Bag of Rhythm to Your Next Jammin' Party this Summer

Phil Spector gave us the Wall of Sound. Julie Andrews gave us the Sound of Music. Now, Bob Marley's family wants to give us the Bag of Rhythm. I've written about the House of Marley before, and their commitment to both quality audio equipment and charitable efforts through their 1love foundation, named after Bob Marley's classic song.

At a certain point, probably around $100, any set of headphones is going to be just fine for the majority of listeners. So at that point, it comes down to quality, comfort, style, colors, and branding. And if the House of Marley, founded by the legendary Bob Marley's family, has anything to say about it, a manufacturer's ecological footprint and philanthropic efforts should also be considered.



PhotoPieces App Review

image

PhotoPieces is a fun little photo-manipulation app for iPhone that is based on creating photo-collages out of unique designs. The designs are available in the app as templates, although there is a very limited amount of them -- six to be exact. Despite this, the app is something unique on the App Store because it really allows you to create some interesting looking images.



Daedalus Touch App Review

image

There are many journal and note taking apps that are available; but Daedalus Touch definitely takes the demand for better features to a different level.  Luckily, the very first thing that is requested after downloading is an important tutorial.  It is recommended to thoroughly read and follow the tutorial because without it; you will not be aware of all the unique features that are offered.  The tutorial itself is very user friendly and clearly shows the use and purpose of the app.  With each page that is read; this system will ask for you to physically demonstrate the information being taught to insure that you are able to comply.  It’s a fail proof way to making anyone who buys the app capable of using it. 



PodPlayer 1.1 Update Review

This is just a quick follow-up on my original review of PodPlayer. This new release brings several awesome features, one of which is my personal favorite. I asked the developer about adding it and he readily complied.

In addition to all the capabilities of the original 1.0 release, PodPlayer 1.1 adds the ability to automatically start playing selected podcasts when the app launches. No more fumbling around the screen or headset buttons when starting the app for the first time.
