Have your App Reviewed by a Professional Writer

I love my iPhone as much as ever but, to be honest, I’ve been more than a little bit underwhelmed by what has been showing up in the App Store lately. The number of significant updates has slowed and it’s been more than a few days since there was something that made me go, "Wow!". Well, this app made me go "WOW!!!!!"
Stanford Professor Dr. G. Wong and his company Smule released a music application for the iPhone. I wasn’t going to download it. I love music but I’m not a musician. And, quite honestly, I’ve been more than a little bit underwhelmed by the music applications that have come out for the iPhone. Sure, the first time you see them they’re cool but, after a short time, not so much. This particular application, however… WOW!!!! Truly mind blowing. Like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Like nothing I ever thought could happen. Did I mention, WOW!
Here’s the description–
Ocarina is the first true musical instrument created for the iPhone. It is sensitive to your breath, touch and movements, making it even more versatile than the original. Unlike other musical applications, there are no precompiled ripoffs to musicians will find unlimited opportunities for self-expression. But you don’t have to be formally trained to appreciate this enchanting instrument.
–Blow into your microphone to generate music
–Hold on combinations of the holes to change your patch
–Tilt your phone from front to back to change the vibrato depth
–Tilt your phone from side to side to change the vibrato rate
Here’s the video of it in action,
I saw it and immediately bought the application. (Hey, it was just $.99!)
More than anything Ocarina is something you have to experience firsthand. You blow into the microphone and begins to create a sound. You tapped one of the "holes" that appear on the iPhone screen and it changes the note. Tapped one of the other "holes" in the no changes as well. It’s absolutely bizarre.
I showed it to my wife. While patient with my interests, she doesn’t share my enthusiasm. And yet, her comment, "This takes it to the next level. Very cool."
The application does even more. If you tap the globe icon on the bottom of the application you’re able to see and hear other people who are using the application somewhere in the world. You see where they’re located on a globe and you actually see and hear the notes they’re playing rising up from their location. It is truly something worth seeing and experiencing even if you’re not a musician and have no intention of using the application in the future.
Ocarina is available HERE in the App Store for $.99.

Remember The Milk is the first web-based task program I used. An impressive service, RTM’s ability to integrate with numerous other services such as Jott, Gmail and many more, made it a remarkably powerful option for task management. Thus-far the only option to use RTM with an iPhone was to use Apiggo’s ToDo app or to use the RTM webapp. That changed today with the release of a resident RTM app.
There are plenty of different places to get a mobile application designed. The problem is that they’re quite expensive. You might be able to figure out how to create your own, but it will probably look very basic. Instead, a good mobile application development software can make it even easier, so that you can build […]
This is one of those apps that has fascinated me from day one. WritingPad offers an amazingly different text input method. Instead of tapping away at the touchscreen you…
enter text into the iPhone by tracing word shapes rather than typing letters. Each shape traced on the soft keyboard with your finger is recognized as a word. Error correction is fast and easy.
Slide your finger from one letter to the next to create words?? Souns too good to be true, right? Amazingly enough… it actually works remarkably well.
This update is a minor, but significant, one. The "add word" prompt now appears whenever the cursor is positioned above an unrecognized word. As a result, creating a customized dictionary is much easier. That, in turn, means the app will quickly become much more accurate.
While WritingPad has not become my input method of choice, as a free app, it is worth a look. It might be the right input method for you.
You can get WritingPad HERE in the App Store for free.
