Find Chords, Tune and Play in Time With Planet Waves Guitar Tools

Price: $1.99   Score: 10/10   By M. Schustermanbadge appstore sm Find Chords, Tune and Play in Time With Planet Waves Guitar Tools

I don’t play guitar, but as a musician I’ve worked with guitarists on many different levels. Whether it’s a beginner who just picked up his first electric to a serious jazz guitarist, I can’t imagine anyone interested in guitar wouldn’t be able to get good use out of Planet Waves Guitar Tools.

Designed by Planet Waves, this app is slick in design and offers a pretty staggering about of features for the relatively low price. Honestly, the “Chords” section is enough to be an app within itself; choose a chord, anything from basic A major to C# dim 7 with the 11th, from the scroll wheel. The fret is displayed with numbered circles representing the spot your fingers should be placed. At the top of each string is the name of the note you will hear, or an “x” if that string isn’t used in the chord. You can also change the options to write the interval (3rd, 5th) in place of note names above the strings. And you can flip it into a lefty orientation – a nice touch.

Tap each string to hear the note, or swipe the board to hear the chord strummed. The sound is fantastic – very realistic. And that’s just the first section.

In “Chord Finder,” you can figure out the name of that cool chord you “discovered” by tapping it out on the fret board. Each note you played will show, along with the name of the chord itself. And the “Scales” section gives you help finding everything from your chromatic scale to a minor hexatonic, along with a great “Tips” section for scales practice. The level of customization you can play with is pretty astounding – from standard to double drop D tuning and plenty of other tuning and sound options.

Speaking of which, that’s another helpful feature of Planet Waves Guitar Tools – a pretty cool looking tuner you can set to either strobe or needle, as well as a metronome that lets you choose both by beats per minute or score marking, such as “allegro” or “adagio.”

Overwhelmed yet? I was. But there’s two more sections; this app will use your current location to find teachers on guitar and nearly any other musical instrument in your area and provide you with contact information. It will also generate a list of the music shops nearest you. At $1.99, this one is a no-brainer – an outstanding app for guitarists of all levels.

Planet Waves Guitar Tools [iTunes Link] is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Requires iOS 3.1 or later. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

Christmas Gift Adds Wintery Feel to iPhone Photos

Price: Free     Score: 6/10     By A. Papachristosbadge appstore sm Christmas Gift Adds Wintery Feel to iPhone Photos

Though Christmas has come and gone, the winter season persists.  The malls may be less hectic, and all the Christmas decorations may be on sale, but that warm, fuzzy feeling you get from the glow of the twinkle lights still remains.  And, with Christmas Gift by Alice Dev Team, users shouldn’t assume this app only serves a purpose 12 days each year.

You see, Christmas Gift allows users to decorate their photos with frosty frames, allowing them to then share their seasonal creations with friends and family.  Users need only take a new picture right within the application or choose from anything already in your photo library.  Once the photo has been imported, blow into your phone’s mouthpiece to watch as the frosty frame appears all around your photo.

Unfortunately, users don’t have much control as to the final product, for you must blow directly into the bottom of the device or else nothing will occur on-screen.  Each frame comes out looking nearly identical as a result.  Once the entire edge has been lined by frost, your blowing efforts become useless, so do not pass out under the impression that lighter or heavier breaths will help adjust the frame’s appearance.  This also leaves me perplexed, as I do believe many versions of the iPod Touch and iPad will require a special microphone attachment for they do not come with a built-in voice receiver.

Once you’ve made your frame, save your creation, send it to friends and family via email, or post the image to Facebook.  Considering the premise of the application focuses mainly on snow and frost, the name will surely mislead many customers as it implies this application fixates only on a given holiday, when it in fact simply focuses on winter weather.

For a video demonstration of what Christmas Gift has to offer, click here.  However, don’t be surprised if you feel slightly cheated when all the interesting features, like those 30 glittery snowflake frames or snowbrush, are nowhere to be found.  Those characteristics can only be found in the gift bag, ultimately costing you money.  They may lure you in with an attractive freebie, but you’ll quickly realize you cannot do much more than blow into your device a few times.  And, when you consider what the additional options actually do, the added expense just doesn’t quite seem worth it, for your creative options are still fairly limited.

Christmas Gift [iTunes Link] requires iPhone OS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

Visual Measurements and Dimensions Made Simple

Price: $4.99    Score: 10/10    By M. Schustermanbadge appstore sm Visual Measurements and Dimensions Made Simple

Games, productivity tools, educational or entertaining…I’ve come to realize that when it comes to apps, no matter what kind, it’s a simple concept beautifully executed that reels me in.

Such is the case with My Measures and Dimensions, designed by SIS Software. The concept – store object dimensions visually. The execution – perfect. When you open the app, you can either tap “New” to take a picture or choose one from your photo library, or tap “Create Folder” at the bottom to get things organized. Once you take or select a picture, helpful instructions appear on the screen, although the method of adding dimensions is fairly intuitive.

Tap “Draw” at the bottom to add lines, angles or text. Tap with two fingers to place the object (dragging in or out to adjust in the case of angle), then drag the line, angle or text box in place on the image. You can customize it with a tap; add numbers, measurement units, and select from eight different colors to help organize if you have several measurements on one image. Erasing any measurements is as simple as tapping “Erase,” then the object.

Once you’ve jotted down all of the measurements you want on an image, you can either export the image via email, or save it to your photo library. You also have the option of going back to the main menu, selecting “Share” and doing either of those steps with an entire folder.

The great thing about My Measures is that it’s equally useful to novices and pros. Moving into a new house? Taking measurements is a pain, but having them laid over actual pictures of your new rooms makes it so much easier to plan. And I’m no contractor or carpenter, but I can’t imagine they have any tool simpler than this when it comes to notating measurements. For five dollars, this app will likely be well worth it if you need to keep track of measures and dimensions.

Test Your Reflexes With Addictive Game Ninja Bounce

Price: $0.99    Score: 9/10    By S. Campbellbadge appstore sm Test Your Reflexes With Addictive Game Ninja Bounce

Ninja Bounce is an incredibly simple, but highly addictive and challenging new game from developers Jellyoasis Inc.

Featuring just one button in ‘Challenge’ mode and two in ‘Time Attack’ – Ninja Bounce is a frantic fastest-finger game of accuracy and precision. Each game begins with your ninja running from an oncoming wall of fire. He bounces across the screen trying desperately to get away, and you have to time his jumps perfectly to escape successfully. Each time he jumps, he lands on a pad and you have to tap the on-screen button at the exact moment he lands. The better you time it, the faster your Ninja will travel and the higher your score.

It sounds simple, but there is so much happening on screen visually that it can be hard to get that timing right. In Challenge mode, you just keep bouncing along, trying to keep the rhythm and outrun the fire until you finally get caught out. In Time Attack, there are two types of landing pads, each with their own button. You have to keep your wits about you and hit the right button at the right time to beat the clock. The scenes move so quickly that it’s no easy task!

If you’re looking for an easy pick-up-and-play game, this side scrolling arcade style game is well worth a look. With colorful graphics and dramatic music, Ninja Bounce is a great buy at $0.99.

Jellyoasis Inc is also running a high score competition at the moment with $100, $50 and $10 iTunes gift cards going to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd highest scores. Simply visit their facebook page to enter.
