Video Demo of the incredible iPhone iGOG Mic Trigger Mode

I recently saw a demo of the incredible new iGOG drum trigger program on Create Digital Music. This is the best drum app for the iPhone I’ve ever seen, because it processes the microphone input at the same time you’re playing to determine velocity. The drums are multi-sampled and hitting different areas of the pads […]

No file or output access to iPhone MP3 library – 3.0 SDK still too restrictive

So the iPhone 3.0 SDK does allow you to play music from the iPod library from within your application. However, you do not have file access to the mp3s, nor can you control the output other than the standard iPod player controls, i.e. play, stop, skip, and volume. This means you can’t add effects, you […]

For such an amazing device, the iPhone sure does lack some features. Forwarding text messages, copy and paste, and background applications come to mind. But there’s been one thing that’s been bothering me lately: Vibrating alarms. The iPhone’s clock application is great, allowing you to set timers, use a stopwatch, and have unlimited alarms. But […]

Evidentally you can only have 9 pages of applications on the iPhone

( Apple andGear andiPhone )

And by installing all these applications I won the “congratulations, your phone stopped working” prize. Not really. It still works ok, but it definitely slows down the more apps you install. I actually found that FreeMemory ($.99 in the iTunes store) helps, but I think all it does is load 20 MB into memory forcing […]

Quick DIY Portable iPhone 3g Charger

( Apple anddiy andGear andiPhone andmisc andoriginals andscience )

I’m going to the desert for a week and wanted a way to recharge my iPhone. I bought a zap rx4-c, which works with most of my other devices, only to learn that it’s not compatible with the iPhone. Zap’s customer service was friendly but they should change their description in two ways: One, you […]
