I got this from StyleTap today:
The official v1.0.001 release of StyleTap Platform is now available! If you purchased a preview copy, you are entitled to a free upgrade to 1.0. (Your existing registration key will work with v1.0) See the Release Notes on the Downloads page for a list of recent changes.
Over the 18 months since we first announced the availability of the preview version, we released 34 separate builds, which were downloaded tens of thousands of times. We added dozens of new features and fixed hundreds of issues.
We’ve been amazed by the rich diversity of Palm OS® applications, the creativity and enthusiasm of end users and the support and co-operation of Palm OS developers. We’re really looking forward to this next stage in the evolution of the StyleTap solution.
Thank you for your interest in StyleTap Platform!
See the news release for the full details…
Excellent news for PocketPC owners.
The price has gone up though, now $49.95 from the $29.95 I paid on the beta programme. Still, I think it is worth the money.
I’m still trying to find good workable software for my Libretto. Rebirth didn’t work out really as you need to run the CD with it and that isn’t much good for a machine the size of a Libretto.
I really need something that will run in Windows 95 within 32mb of RAM, which I know is not much at all.
Any suggestions / links gratefully received.
Music thing: Can you recommend any of these gear dealers?
Music thing shop seems to be getting up way, which is good. I’m looking forward to having a nose around when it is open.
I have made abortive attempts to get to grips with this app a couple of times, but I’ve never been able to get my head around it. However, the feature in Computer Music has inspired me to give it a go again.
I do like some of the features in the latest version, and it seems to be being actively developed, which is a big boon as far as I’m concerned.
I think that considering the promise of the application it is really worth a go and some serious effort on my part.
I’ll report back on how it all goes.
I’m glad that sites like this pick up the Computer Music article, it shows that stuff like handheld music is important.
I’ve taken the time to read it in more depth now. Not a bad start on handheld music. It does cover the main bases in terms of mobile OS’s and devices, and the really big applications, ie:
– Bhajis Loops
– MiniMusic suite
– Pheonix Studio
So, from that point of view not bad at all, and I have to add that as far as I am aware it will be the first time these apps have been in a feature in a mainstream magazine. So from that point of view I am very pleased.
Of course, for enthusiasts there is always more. There are other applications about and it would be nice to talk about the history etc. But of course, I think that those kinds of things are for blogs like this to discuss.
So, overall, a good job I feel.
I used this to tune my son’s guitar today. It worked really well (and he was really impressed too). It wasn’t the cheapest of tuners, but the technology and interface are brilliant so I felt it was worth the extra money.
Another good guitar based application for palms, but also available for PocketPC as well.
I picked up a copy today. It looks fairly basic, but I think it is a big step in the right direction. Once I’ve had a proper read I’ll write more.
Here’s a useful app for palm guitar enthusiasts. I’ve only just started learning to play guitar, but I can see the use of this tool. I may look out some more guitar based apps soon.
