iPhone: Loving those apps

leave a comment »

My new iPhone is revolutionising my life through its applications. I didn’t need to pick up a computer for two days and still stayed connected. There are some really exciting developments here, including Instant Messaging, Google, Facebook and the New York Times. That application is amazing and one I’m most impressed with. Stanza also provided a good example of how to read on the iPhone and access content.

iHologram!

leave a comment »

Ok, since almost everybody in the studio now has either a iphone or ipod touch. I think it is a good idea to share some of my finding related them.

Found this really cool dude who just built a application for iPhone which fades the 3D hologram effect, it works by assuming a constant viewing angle (35-45 degrees), typical for when the device is placed on a tabletop, and the 3d scene’s perspective is then warped using anamorphic perspective, making the object appear to jump off the screen.

Check out more information from David OReilly’s website and the video, guys:

The Business Card… Is it dead?

leave a comment »

Seemingly taking the lead from the world of advertising, TechCrunch reports that the end of the business card may be on the horizon.

The business card needs to die, and everyone knows it. They’re clumsy, easy to lose, and virtually useless as one of the last bits of information that we pass non-digitally (they kill trees, too). The cell phone market could easily put business cards out of their misery, but instead of conforming to a single standard for contact exchange, handset manufacturers offer proprietary solutions or none at all.

FriendBook, an iPhone application from Tapulous, looked like it might hold the answer. The app uses a physical “handshake” to swap information – users simply put their iPhones next to each other and shake them. Granted, this would only work on iPhones, but it could have paved the way for similar apps on other phones.

First Real iPhone Synth

leave a comment »

This is going to make some noise artists out there very very happy indeedy

Noise.IO is soon-to-be releasing an FM-based, first ever fairly full-featured synthesizer app for the iPhone that includes gestural adjustment of parameters.

According to their website:

Noise.io is the first synthesizer to incorporate the ESFM technology – Enhanced Subspace Frequency Modulation. It’s an improved version of FM which has been developed especially for iPhone, the architecture has been redesigned to allow maximum user-friendly approach to creating new sounds. The results are astonishing – the control over the sounds is amazingly simple, even inexperienced people can start crafting their own sounds in no time!

iTablet

with 3 comments

There are rumors that Apple might release a new product late this year in the US called the iTablet. Apple is going to leverage the more than 100 patents (like MultiTouch) that they’ve filed for iPhone in a larger screen device that borrows heavily from iPhone. Think of a larger, media playing, eBook reading iTablet with 3G, GPS, and Bluetooth. Now think of it in 6, 8 and 10-inch screen sizes. This is when things get interesting.

It will run the full Mac OS X, have a slot loading SuperDrive, an “iPhone-type” GPS chip and an Intel Core Duo processor – presumably Intel’s Atom. An Apple tablet, preferably around 8-inch diagonal, 10-inch max, would be a Kindle-killer and the ultimate eBook reader. Its color display and slot-loading SuperDrive would also make the tablet a killer movie and music platform too.
