How the Apple Watch Could Change the Face (har-har) of iOS

Posted by Rob Rich on March 31st, 2015

The Apple Watch is still a ways out, but my previous musings on the wearable’s various features got me thinking: what might it be like a year after launch? Two years? Five years? What if it becomes a symbiotic part of the iOS framework to the point that it practically comes packaged with the iPhone?

Of course it’s going to be a while until we know for sure whether Apple’s latest piece of hardware will be considered a hit or a miss, but for argument’s sake let’s fast-forward a few years and pretend the Apple Watch was a resounding success. This is how I think it could permanently change the way we mobile.

For starters, I expect that we’ll see a big divide between the types of software available for the Apple Watch versus just the iPhone. The Apple Watch, due to its small screen and the fact that it’s pretty much designed to be interacted with in short busts, will probably have far more apps and far fewer games - I’m thinking weather, message alerts, maps and GPS functions, and all sorts of stuff nobody’s thought of yet. I’m sure there will still be games for it, but apps will serve a much more significant purpose.

You Can Start Challenging Your Friends to a Dual Later This Week

Posted by Jessica Fisher on March 31st, 2015

That means that your phone and your friend's phone will each make up 1/2 of the screen. As you shoot towards your opponent, they will have to defend by physically moving their phone.

This is an innovative and exciting-looking new app. Dual will be available for free with a single in-app purchase to unlock all features. You can check out Dualfor yourself this Thursday.

Now You Can Trade-in Your Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone Devices at Apple Stores

Posted by Jessica Fisher on March 31st, 2015

Chosen Gives Hopeful Singers, Songwriters, and Their Critics, a Place to Come Together

Posted by Rob Rich on March 30th, 2015
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

If YouTube videos and reality TV shows like The Voice have taught us one thing, it’s that there are a lot of people out there who are anxious to show the world their talents. And if they’ve taught us a second thing, it’s that there’s an almost equally sizable group of people who are anxious to judge those hopefuls. What’s interesting about Chosen is that it actually caters to both of these crowds.

Chosen comes from the mind of David Hyman, and gives you the chance to become a social media star - or to find said star and be able to say you knew them when.

Performers have an impressive set of tools at their disposal. They can record themselves singing their own songs, do a little karaoke, lip sync to popular tunes, or upload their own video from outside of the app. Once it’s ready, they can then tweak the audio and the video with several different effects (be they silly, dramatic, or anything in-between). What’s impressive is that the audio tracks that play in the background when recording from the app will automatically be canceled out to prevent distortion or reverb - in other words you won't have to wear headphones while recording.

Judges, on the other hand, get to try and find those diamonds in the rough. Although their process is more of an assortment of mini-games. In one, they watch three different video clips and try to pick which performer was the most popular (it proves how “in-tune” they are as a judge). Another one presents a similar scenario except they watch a performer’s clip, then two different judges’ videos, and have to decide which judge was ranked the highest.

It’s this combination of talent sharing and gamified critique that make Chosen such a solid contender in a marketplace that’s already got a a few “talent scout” apps in it. Granted, I’m not going anywhere near the Performer side of things (you’d thank me if you’ve ever heard me try to sing before), but I could totally be a Judge.

So whether you want to show the world how you can belt out songs better than the original artists or if you’d prefer to have fun watching other people perform and telling them what you think, Chosen could be worth a look.
