+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Words cannot express the awesomeness of this completely free music sampler app that lets users turn any sounds into a song in just a few minutes.

Ridiculous and physically impossible musical instruments, with equally ridiculous and physically impossible names, can only mean one thing: Dr. Seuss. Or in this case, a Dr. Seuss Band.

Players can choose from a set of five different horns, then decide whether they’d like to mess around making their own music or try to go for the high score while recreating tunes from one of ten original songs from Hop on Pop to The Cat in the Hat. The sounds each horn makes can be tweaked by adding bizarre attechments such as fishbowls and train whistles, which fits right in, honestly. It’s even possible to exchange various horn parts to create some truly weird… things that make noise.

This suitable-for-all-ages piece of musically interactive childhood has just recently seen a price drop, so now anyone can compose their own Seussian melodies on their iOS device for free. Sounds awfully tempting…

Moo, Baa, La, La, La Book Review

Moo, Baa, La, La, La Book Review

I’m going to come right out and say this. I love Sandra Boynton. To me, she is the most prolific children’s story writers to come out in this generation, specifically for younger children. I put her alongside Dr. Seuss and Robert Munsch, and that’s high praise. “Moo, Baa, La, La, La” is produced by Loud […]

Be Aware Of Your Suroundings With Awareness

Every so often I find myself next to a car on the freeway with a driver that has earbuds in his ear. While the driver is jamming out to presumably whatever is on his iPhone, I often wonder what would happen if someone honked at him. Would he hear it?

The worst is when you see someone walking around with earbuds. Like a driver on a cell phone, the person walking is typically oblivious to their surroundings. They cross streets without looking, stop right in front of people on sidewalks, and will turn on a dime without any indication. People with earbuds are a hazard, particularly when they have the noise cannelling variety.

To combat this, essensy has created Awareness! The Headphone App. What Awareness! does is uses the iPhone’s internal microphone to pump sound to you while you are listening to your tunes. For example, if a train is coming, blaring its horn to warn you of its impending arrival, Awareness! will pump the trains sound from the microphone into your earbuds.

The app is pretty new, and I’m sure it needs some tweaks to be perfect, but it is getting a good amount of iTunes love. There are a few bad reviews, but the majority are five star reviews that say things like, “What an awesome app!!!!” and “I love it, LOVE IT”.

If you often find yourself in harms way due to your high end Shure headphones, I implore you to give Awareness a try. For the sake of humanity, just do it.

iPad Only App - Designed for the iPad
