  1. Hi! Pete here from intermorphic. Keep up the great work BTW, I keep coming back to your site for inspiration! 🙂I think it’d be nice for nostalgic reasons to list mobile apps that have inspired you in some way, that are no longer available. miniMIXA would obviously get my vote – that was one *awesome* piece of kit, you wouldn’t believe what we packed into V3. Did I ever mention that, amongst other things, it actually included a video mixing mode and a media player? 🙂 Ah, happy days…!


  2. So you wanna' be a scratch D.J.? Here's your chance to shine with iTurn! Scratch to any tune.Great with any style music – pop, rock, hip-hop, jazz and rap . Just play song from your music and then start up iTurn. Move your finger back and forth on the turntable to hear your D.J. magic over your song! Touch control Scratch volume. Features include: – Scratch sounds vary based on direction of motion.– Pitch of scratch varies based on speed of motion.– Adjustable volume control.– Drag horizontally or vertically across the turntable for a single beat scratch.– Drag your finger for a variety of multiple beat scratches. Entertain friends. Great for parties – just plug into your system and use iTurn to add your D.J. touch to the music. Get the beat!
