Another DScratch video, and an update on his google site too.
I was seeing if there was anything new at the StyleTap site, and found this in their faq.
Q: “Is there a version of StyleTap for the Apple iPhone?”
A: “Not at this time, but we are actively investigating the technical feasibility.”
Now, that would be great wouldn’t it, if you could run Bhajis Loops on your iPhone. Who knows, maybe one day.
1src has a really interesting article on the PDA’s supposed decline, and how manufacturers are starting a renewed interest in the format.
Add to that the recent comment by Apple that they see the iPod Touch as more than just an advanced media player and more like a new mobile platform, and the impending release of the SDK for this new platform, and you start to have some real momentum behind the old “PDA” format.
Add to that the fact that Microsoft wants to have Windows Mobile as a real consumer band, and the interest in mobile technology seems to be becoming a reality.
From a mobile music perspective I would have to say that the Apple platform is the most attractive, if they can get the SDK right and developers can make real applications for the platform.
It is an interesting start to 2008.
I think there is a real gap in the market for more plug ins for Bhajis Loops and Griff. I don’t think it is unreasonable to say that if a developer were to release a set (however small) or even a single plug in for one of these apps I would dive in and buy it almost immediately, and I would guess that there are lots of others who would do the same.
So, why no takers?
