iPad Keynote Remote

Long live the iPad… and Keynote

As I was updating my Keynote for iPad app today, I notices two things: First, it now runs on the iPhone. Second, it supports the Keynote Remote app. I like this app already as it allows me to remote control my desktop Keynote presentations. With the combination of these two apps, the iPad 2 finally becomes a powerful business device. As I have an iPhone anyway I am good to go with my new presentation setup. Using the video mirroring functionality of […]

Garageband for iPad

Long time, no groove… GarageBand for iPad

After reading several reviews of Apple’s GarageBand for iPad, I couldn’t resist. For just 4,99 $ it seems to be the best 8 track recording studio I’have ever seen. If you are interested I recommend this review by iLounge. At least trying out the drums is something you shouldn’t miss. I especially like the integrated sampler, allowing you to record your own samples. External microphones would be a recommended accessory for this. There is a integrated sample library in addition to you […]

Seamless iOS App

Don’t stop the music… with Seamless

Just recently I discovered a very cool iPhone app, called Seamless. What it does is quite simple: It crossfades music playing in itunes on your Mac to your iPhone – seamlessly. You might think this is an app of no real use to anyone, but try it for yourself. I certainly wouldn’t miss it for the world. Here is the ad for the app (nicely done by the way): It works like this: You have to install the Seamless app […]

iPad 2 release at Apple Store Alstertal Hamburg

iPad 2: GPU benchmarks

I got the iPad 2 on its release date (March 25, 2011) at the Apple Store Alstertal Hamburg. After about 6 hours waiting in line, I opted for a 32GB model with 3G. The iPad 2 is a beautiful piece of technology and finally implements what I was waiting for: Video Mirroring. With a 30-pin to HDMI adapter one can see everything on the iPad and on any HDMI compatible TV or beamer. This is a killer feature for me. […]

Inception - The App

Hans Zimmer and the Inception iPhone app

A week ago the free Inception iPhone App was introduced. It’s a project by the movie’s director Christopher Nolan, Michael Breidenbrücker and Hollywood’s star composer Hans Zimmer. As an absolute Hans Zimmer fan, I tried it out immediately and I must admit, it is intriguing. It uses augmented sound through the iPhone’s headset to change the “dream” your are experiencing which is underlined by music composed by Hans Zimmer. This app is a dream machine that transforms the world around you into a dreamworld. […]

Apple Battery Charger – Recharge the Apple way…

Using Apple’s wireless keyboards and mouses keeps challenges me with the need for new batteries in the most inconvenient situations, such as Sunday afternoons when there is no place to get new ones. Obviously rechargeable batteries would be an option but it never quite worked out with my Apple peripherals before. Still, I want the most energy-efficient way to power my accessories. As advertised, the new Apple Battery Charger might just do the trick. Reduce, reuse, recharge. Introducing the first battery […]
