Love this app for Kalles that tells you how to boil the perfect egg, but also puts a playlist together that, when finished, means your egg is ready. It’s a small thing but a really nice touch.
I see way too many apps that are packed with “things” and “features” that don’t do any of them very well. Much prefer this single focus / brilliant execution approach.
By CP+B Europe, the app has already been downloaded more than 50,000 times.
A new music control and performance instrument for iPad. Its multi-touch interface reconnects the musician’s
actions directly with the music. Use Performer to play your Synth, operate your DAW, or anything that receives OSC or MIDI.
Available now in the app store!
Bit of a mouthful. Kinda defies description. But I like it.
I’m going to try this out later.
Interesting to go for completely voice / no-touch in an app, but I like the look of it.

The big boys are coming to mobile, we all know that, and it seems people are happy using ‘branded’ apps as long as they’re kinda useful.
Coke go for their take on Spin The Bottle. It’s OK. Not something you can imagine using that often. Maybe one for the “yoofs”.
Nike offers a bit more. Training Club lets you login to your Nike Women account. There’s also links to your workout plan via YouTube.
Both are nicely designed, but Nike pips it for me.

Blip.fm is a new web app that lets you tell people what you’re listening to… with a comment.
The look and feel is also similar to Twitter posing the simple question ‘What are you listening to?’.
It’s a really nice example of integration and how apps and services are finally feeling “more connected” hooking up to Twitter, Last.fm, Friendfeed and others.
Rubbish Exhibit A:
I press play in iTunes, like the song, and want people to know about it and have a listen.
iScrobbler listens to what i’m playing
Last.fm receives that data and publishes it
Blip.fm looks at that data to help make suggestions for my “blip”
Twitter automatically sends out a new ‘”tweet”
My Facebook status and blog rss feeds are now updated with a direct link to the listen to the MP3.
The frustrated DJ inside me is grinning.
