Apple Iphone Apps: Piano: Review. Ipod Touch and iphone apps reviews

Apple iphone apps: Review of Piano for Iphone and Ipod Touch.

   New apps are out in the App Store for iPod Touch with the new 2.0 firmware and the new iPhone 3G! Are there any applications for musicians? Yes there are! There are applications with drums, guitars, and many other instruments. There are even applications that are compatible with porfessional studio recording systems! But one of the best of the music applications is Pianist.
     Pianist is an application for musicians who own an iPod Touch or an iPhone. With this application, users can play piano using the amazing touch screen. All 88 keys in the piano are individually sampled from a real grand piano to give you the most realistic sound. And every time you touch any key on the piano, the key goes down like a real key on a piano! Pianist also lets players play up to five note chords on the piano. With this application, you can also record what you play and you can also play along with your recording and even record that! In addition to these cool features, there is a metronome to help you stay with the beat. This can be helpful if you’re aiming towards perfection. Also, you have the ability to control the volume of the piano. This feature is especially cool because not only does it control your piano volume, but also the volume of every application that you have. This app is amazing and would serve well to musicians who are bored and can’t get to a piano.
     One of the downside of Pianist is that you can view only view 12 keys at a time. You have to push a button to go up or down the piano. You can also do piano panning; with this feature, you can view all 88 keys on a miniature piano and move your finger over to any 12 keys that you want to play. So playing complicated pieces on this application is very complicated.

   Pianist is an amazing music application that is sure to keep you entertained and occupied for quite a bit. Though there are many things that are very cool about the Pianist application, there are some things that pull it away from the “perfect application” category. Pianist is one of the best music applications and it is definitely worth $5.99.

Iphone Apps review: Super Monkey Ball

Here’s a Super Monkey Ball 2.0 Iphone apps Review

Here it is: The new iPod/iPhone 2.0 update with many easily obtainable applications! Out of hundreds of applications, there are many good ones and many bad ones. One of the best games that show off the iPod/iPhones’s accelerometer is Super Monkey Ball.
Super Monkey Ball is a unique game where you (the monkey inside a plastic ball) are trying to reach the end of the level while collecting all the bananas in under 60 seconds. To move in the game, you tilt your iPod or iPhone and the monkey moves in the direction of your tilt. So for example, if you tilt you iPod/iPhone to the right, the monkey goes to the right. In the App Store, this game is $10, and many are asking: Is it really worth the money? Well this review can help you make that decision.
This game is very different from the other games made for the iPod and iPhone. Unlike other games, Super Monkey Ball is a full console game. This simply means that this game has so much to it, such as the plethora of levels and the graphics, that it usually takes a game console like the Nintendo Wii to run it. Super Monkey Ball also shows off the amazing performance of the accelerometer in the iPod Touch and iPhone. The game is very sensitive to every move that you make with your iPod/iPhone; as soon as you tilt the thing, you monkey immediately starts moving in that direction. Super Monkey Ball also lasts a long time because of all the levels and everything that you can do on this game. This game is good for waiting rooms, restaurants with long waiting lists, or just whenever you’re bored. This game is very entertaining and fun.
Like all games, Super Monkey Ball also has a few downsides. Due to the extreme sensitivity to your tilts and moves, many people have a lot of trouble getting everything under control. For example, a friend of mine tried this game and when he would try to tilt the iPod, the monkey would go flying at high speed off the track. Many people experience this and are very tired and frustrated after a few minutes. I’m sorry to say that for some people, Super Monkey Ball takes a lot of patience; and most of us are not willing to use patience to be able to play a game on our iPod or iPhone. This whole problem with Super Monkey Ball turns many people away from the game. But once you are able to control your character, you will find this game entertaining and fun. One last small downside to this game is the actual appearance of the monkey. While the background and everything else looks very good compared to the original Super Monkey Ball on Gamecube, the monkey looks like it was pulled from an old Gameboy. The monkey is sort of pixilated and very jerky. This appearance of the monkey kind of takes away from the whole appearance of  Super Monkey Ball.
Though this game has some downsides, Super Monkey Ball is a great game to have on your iPod Touch or iPhone. It is definitely worth $10.

Iphone Apps Reviews: Review of AquaForest for Iphone and Ipod Touch

Thinking about buying and downloading AquaForest for iPod Touch and iPhone? Here’s a quick review of AquaForest.

The new update came out for the iPod Touch and the iPhone. This update enables both products to play many applications. So many people are browsing the App Store wondering what they should get. Well one of the applications that you should get is AquaForest.

AquaForest is a very awesome application designed for creativity. In this application, you can create water, heat, walls, elastic strings that you can dangle stuff from, and many other things. While it seems at first that this game could be boring, it really captures the interest of creative people. When you create water by just swiping your finger across the screen, the water is then pulled down gravity (which you can turn off in Settings) to the bottom of your iPod or iPhone. Then the water reacts to every single tilt that you make. This feature is really cool. But you can do many things with the water. You can make it evaporate by creating heat, you can draw your own boat and make it float on the water, and many other neat things. You can also create walls to make your own mazes to move objects through, you can draw yourself a house and then burn it all down with fire, and you can do many other cool things with the wall feature. AquaForest is really amazing because everything that you create reacts to each other based on real-world physics and properties. For example, anything heavier than water will, of course, float to the bottom of any water that you have on the screen. Also, when you mix the right things, they will combine and make another different substance. In AquaForest, you can also play around with the puzzles that come with the application. Some of the puzzles include mazes and combining different things such as water and heat. This game is very amazing and it allows you to take your creativity as far as you want.

One thing that I do have to say about AquaForest is that it does have one problem. When you have only one or two things going on at the same time, things move smooth and they move at a nice speed. When you have a bunch of things going at the same time or if you have a lot of water on the screen, things start to move slower than normal. I don’t like this because it kind of ruins the fun of this game. The slow moving water and objects is a real turn-off. But usually, things move nice and smooth.

AquaForest is a great application for the iPod Touch and the iPhone. I highly recommend it and it is definitely worth $7.99
