I have a reputation for being able to go toe-to-toe with developers at their own games, beating their best times and high scores. This is Carter vs. the Developer.

Kevin Ng is the madman behind the high-flying Impossible Road, featuring a rolling ball on a difficult-to-survive course. I try to beat a pre-determined score of his, and then try to tackle his record for most gates jumped. Along the way there’s plenty of helpful tips, and a trick for experts that even I didn’t know going in to the game. Watch!

Carter vs. the Developer: Mikey Hooks

I have a reputation for being able to go toe-to-toe with developers at their own games, beating their best times and high scores. This is Carter vs. the Developer.

Mike Meade, one of the namesakes of Mikey Hooks, the game he co-created with Mike Gaughen as BeaverTap Games, is a speed-running champion. He’s dominated the leaderboards on games like Super QuickHook. So I’m up for a formidable challenge as I try to beat one of the best in the world at the game they made! I have ten minutes to top Mike Meade’s time on level 4-1 of Story Mode. Do I have the precision turning ability to beat his time?

I have a reputation for being able to go toe-to-toe with developers at their own games, beating their best times and high scores. This is Carter vs. the Developer.

I take on Kevin Pazirandeh’s (Auxbrain, Inc.)high score in Zombie Highway: Driver’s Ed. With the agreed-upon rules of starting at level 7 in experience with the second upgrade for all vehicle parts and the first popper upgrade bought, Kevin set a high score of over 110,000, which you can watch for yourself. I have ten minutes to best that score. Can I do it? Watch me try below.

Pocket Audio ToolsMain LogoIf you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. That’s what George Hufnagl, a Chicago-based sound designer, did. In need of easy-to-use portable tools for audio and video editing, he set out to do just that. And the result? Pocket Audio Tools.

He partnered with Canada-based Christian Floisand, who is also a programmer but learned Objective-C specifically to make this app, to help bring Pocket Audio Tools to life. The app itself is a bit technical, and of use primarily to certain audiences, which George Hufnagl was glad to show me in this demo video running down the various features:

The app currently has four features: a tempo finder for finding the BPM based on a region’s duration, beats, and the type of notes being played. This relates to the Modulation section, where particular tempos can be modulated to different values when trying to slow down or speed up a piece for particular uses. The SMPTE section allows those who work with audio along with video to calculate particular frame values based on SMPTE (Hours:Minutes:Seconds:Frames) timing or frame timing, to help get audio down to the specific value they need it to be at, with the ability to save favorite values.

Pocket Audio ToolsTempo FinderThe scale frequency section is the only one that actually features sound output! This lets sound designers see the frequencies of certain notes, their MIDI key equivalents, and to output that frequency to test how it will sound. Different scales based in different notes can be chosen to help get the exact frequencies necessary.

But most importantly, this is an app that George says that he uses regularly, especially the tempo finder in the sound projects that he works on.

This is just the beginning for Pocket Audio Tools: the app is planned to be updated over the next year with additional features added in (the Feedback link will send an email to the programmer, Christian) as per users’ requests and with plans to bring the app to other platforms including desktops. This is a tool meant to be handy for audio professionals, and considering that the creators are audio professionals themselves, they don’t just have to live up to their users’ standards: they have to live up to their own.

Wibbitz Takes Long Articles and Creates Video Summaries Out of Them

Posted by on June 27th, 2013
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Wibbitz takes text articles and creates video summaries out of them, giving users another way to keep up to date on the latest news. The app creators have found that reading long articles on mobile devices is too difficult, so they created Wibbitz to let you watch the news in form of video without needing to read. Users can choose from a number of news sources, such as world, business, and sports, and can arrange their feed in any order they wish.

Now, for an example, stop reading what I have to say about the app and watch the video explain it instead!

Video On Instagram – 15 Second Clips, Filters, Custom Frames, New ‘Cinema’ Mode

Posted by on June 20th, 2013
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom took to the stage today in a livestream, announcing a new video update for the popular photo sharing service, which is now owned by Facebook.

The new video feature, poised to compete with Twitter’s own Vine video sharing app, will give users 15 seconds of video, along with Instagram-style filters and a new image stabilization feature, called Cinema.

Instagram Video

Systrom showed a video clip of a barista at Blue Bottle Coffee in San Francisco. Users simply touch the screen to start recording, and lift their finger to stop, in a Vine-like fashion. The succession of clips, up to 15 seconds total, can then have one of thirteen filters applied to it in real time, just like Instagram photos. The rest of the process looks and feels just like the photo app.

Finally, Systrom previewed Cinema, a stabilization feature for the video taken with Instagram, and it looks stunning. Gone are the days of bouncy footage, though only in 15 second chunks.

Here’s a video for a closer look.

Instagram with video is available as a free update to owners of the app, on both iPhone and Android, right now.

Record The Moments That Matter In 1 Second Everyday

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

What a cool way to remind yourself to make every day count: 1 Second Everyday has you take a short video once per day, and then builds a compilation video with them.

For almost 2 years now, I’ve been recording 1 second every day, so I’ll never forget another day ever again. This project has had such a profoundly positive impact on my life, that I’ve passionately developed an App that will make it extraordinarily easy for anyone to do this too.

Reliving every single day of my life at age 30 in 6 minutes has provided me with a treasured perspective on life. It holds me accountable for making each day count.

Cloudee From Boxee Wants To Help You Share iPhone Videos

Posted by on December 3rd, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Cloudee is a cloud based video service launched by video software company Boxee as a way to store, view, and share your iPhone recorded videos. The app allows you to upload videos from your camera roll directly to your account and share them via email from there. The videos, once uploaded, can be viewed via a browser on the desktop or iPad, on in the app on iPhone. A desktop app is available to allow you to upload videos from your desktop as well.

Cloudee is currently free during the beta period. After the beta is over you will be able to access anything you have previously uploaded. But it appears as though there will be a fee to upload anything after the beta is over. While it hasn’t been announced, we can only assume that at some point these Cloudee videos will be available on your TV via the Boxee software.

Your computer is a powerful piece of technology, and it usually has a lot of storage space on it, enough to store band discographies that you’ve never even listened to one track off of. Your phone and tablet are great mobile devices, but they’re also great for listening to music and watching videos while at home. So, you’re sitting on your couch or laying in bed, and want to listen to that one album from that band that you’ve never really listened to all the way through. However, you’re too lazy to get up to your computer to actually put it on there. Or maybe you downloaded season 5 of Breaking Bad but your storage space is best measured in kilobyes, not gigabytes. If only there was a way to stream the media from iTunes to your iOS device!

Well, there is, and it’s called iTunes Home Streaming. This streams media from an iTunes library over a local wi-fi network to any iOS device.

Set it up on iTunes first. Log in with the Apple ID of your choosing – it’s best if this is the same Apple ID that was initially set up on the device, and is logged in to iCloud, but it doesn’t necessarily need to be. To manage the Apple ID that is logged in to Home Sharing, go to Settings -> Music or Video and tap Apple ID.

To access music from a local iTunes library, go to the Music app. Tap More, Shared, the name of your iTunes library (configurable from iTunes’s preferences), and then the standard music listings will instead show what is available from the remote library, which can then stream the music to your iOS device.

Now here’s the kicker: it also works for video. As long as the video in the iTunes library is compatible with iOS, then it will play. DRM-protected content purchased from iTunes plays back via Home Sharing too. These videos can also be streamed from AirPlay to an Apple TV. It’s the ultimate in high technology being used for new levels of laziness.

Now, the only real downside to Home Sharing is that it only works over local wi-fi. There are plenty of ways to stream music and video over the internet, but that would fill up a completely different article. Until then, enjoy using thousands of dollars of technology to stream video to TV without getting up to your computer.

New App: Xfinity/Comcast Continues to Confuse Customers With a New App That Does The Same as the Last App

Posted by on October 12th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Xfinity / Comcast has released a new TV Viewer app that does parts of what you would want it to do. That goes along with the other Xfinity TV app that also does parts of what you would want it to do. Sigh. Pardon me for the following only slightly applicable rant.

Comcast is in the middle of an identity crisis right now and we are forced to go along for the ride. They seem to do everything in twos now. Comcast and Xfinity cable services. Xfinity TV and Xfinity TV Player apps to watch different parts of the same catalog of streaming TV. Two different streaming services – On Demand and Streampix. And why do they own NBC?

My head is spinning. Which app do I use to watch which show? Of course then there’s Hulu, and Netflix, and….

Did I perhaps, maybe mention how awesome Sling box is?

The fantastic hit game, Pocket Planes, is now on the Mac App Store, and Nimblebit sent us some great news on the way it will interact with the iOS version.

Players will be able to manage their airline from the comfort of their Mac, and pickup right where they left off on their iOS device when they’re on the go! The Mac version also introduces an exclusive plane model, the “X10 Mapple Pro” obtainable only on the Mac version.

In celebration of Pocket Planes coming to the Mac, as well as its recent arrival on Android, we’ve released the first in a series of “Pocket Planes Shorts.” A collaboration with LoadingReadyRun, “Pocket Planes Shorts” as well as upcoming “Tiny Tower Shorts” will showcase the lighter side of living in the bitizen universe!

The pygmies are back, and they’re sicker than ever–literally.

Please keep in mind that this daunting affliction is not limited to just Pygmies; all forms of life on every island, including gigantic apes, poo-slinging monkeys, hungry T-Rexes, and sharks with laser beams, run the risk of contracting this perilous malady. Even non-organic, inanimate objects can be contaminated, so exercise caution when using an outhouse, borrowing fishing poles, playing the bongos, and more.
