IK Multimedia has been a company on a roll lately, with a slew of hardware and software products tailored for amateur and prosumer musicians. Whether its stands and clips for iPhones and iPads or multitrack recording and sampling software for the iOS platform, IK has been expanding their catalog at a prodigious rate. Their latest releases include a MIDI hardware connector for the iOS platform, a sound sampler app and a iPad version of their popular VocaLive software. This review will take a closer look at each.
If you come from Windows Mobile and are into playing MAME arcade games, you may well remember my full article dedicated to the emulation of arcade machines, including MAME, on the platform. (Note that the linked article doesn't show inline images; if you need them, check out THIS instead.)
Fortunately, on the iDevice, it's also possible to play MAME games. No, unlike on Windows Mobile, not the newer, vastly superior (NeoGeo / CPS), “only” the older ones, but it's still more than nothing, isn't it? And it's free – and is also compatible with several Bluetooth game controllers (see below).
Filamente SharePoint is an app that every professional should have. Especially for those that are constantly involved with documents; this app is perfect for your needs. In a basic sense; Filamente allows you to upload, download, and share all of your desired documents. Even though that doesn’t seem like much; if you do a lot of business from your iPad or iPhone, then you realize the difficulty in viewing and uploading certain documents due to format. Luckily; this is where Filament SharePoint comes in to make things easier.
Everyone is looking for the best GPS app and CoPilot Live may have just taken that title. It’s a very user-friendly app that not only has audio capabilities, but also provides additional features to make the experience safer. It really does become your copilot without having to look at your phone or GPS while driving.
I recently got a request to review the social netwoking app 'SUP!' and I've got to say, it's one of the nicer social calendar apps I've tried. It's got nice custom graphics and very easy navigation with five clear buttons on the bottom and then the on calendar buttons as well. The registration for this app was very quick and easy, took less than two minutes to get up and running. I loved the quick tutorial; it was only about 2 minutes at the most but gave me a good understanding of the app and how to use it without wasting my time describing every tiny detail of the app. Creating an event was nice and easy with quite a few built in event types along with the custom option.
If you’ve been an iPhone gamer for any decent length of time and managed to go without playing a game from Chillingo (or Clickgamer), I’m both impressed and a bit scared. For the rest of us, we know by now that they have a pretty good knack for choosing fun, light hearted puzzle / platform / physics / whatever style games, and Blobster is no exception. I’m not sure that there’s anything here that’s really new, but it’s all put together in a way that is both entertaining and fresh. As long as Chillingo keeps publishing games like this, you can expect me to be along for the ride.
Havoc is a simple game with top down graphics. The concept is very simple; you choose one of three different monsters to play as your character. Once you choose your character and level you are onto the game play. For each level you are looking down on the monster who is walking straight down a path (Each level the path is different) and as you walk different items come towards you which you have to throw rocks at. To throw rocks you just drag your finger from your monster toward the object which you want to hit. You can pick up more rocks as they come across your path by simply tapping them. Once you reach the end of the path you’ve completed the level and you get points based on how many targets you hit and accuracy.
As the name describes, U.S. Traveler is made for travelers that call the United States their home and travel to countries outside their own. The application itself is overall very simple. In opening the app, on the “Countries” tab, you are presented with a list of countries & their correlating flags. I thought the added flags next to the country names were a nice touch, especially since most people can quickly find a country based on visual representation versus textual representation. I’ve traveled from the U.S. to numerous countries – Chile, Argentina, Germany & Italy to name a few. I cannot say that I was adequately prepared for the countries I visited, but this app for sure would have helped.
Keep Floating is an entertaining app that can definitely help to pass time. It’s a game that is simple enough for the kids to enjoy while the increasing difficulty makes it fun for adults as well. The game is fairly quick depending on how successful you are making it the perfect game to play while waiting, sitting around, or just for a fast fix. Regardless of the reason; it will definitely teach your reactions to be quick and precise in order to win.
What gadget lover doesn't dream of the day they can be wearing sunglasses with overlay displays, augmenting their reality with location statistics, friend status, emails and every so often, a video. While we haven't quite yet progressed to having a low-cost consumer device that does all these things, the Vuzix Wrap 1200 delivers on at least one of these features. Read on to learn more.
