Another Korg DS-10 update. This time I can’t really understand what it is all about at all!
I stumbled over the muvee site when I was browsing through Handango looking for art and video. I’d forgotten all about this app, so I’ve loaded it on my Treo 750 and it works fine.
It is nowhere near as good as something like TrakAx mobile, but currently I can’t get that working on my Treo as the screen size is not supported. So, while I wait for the people at TrakAx to fix that, I thought I’d try out a few other apps.
Muvee is actually a very simple little app, and just makes little slide shows from still images, and adds a theme to them as well. For what it is there’s nothing wrong with it, but I was expecting more to be honest.
‘Whistle and Hum’, and ‘Imp’ are applications that have been in research and development with miniMusic for a long time. Largely because the Palm OS and hardware has not moved on to the extent where you could do something like this.
So, I wonder if they might make an appearance in the iPhone world at some point? That would make it worth buying.
Just another quick thought on Apple’s app store. There are no trial applications at all. Either it is free or you have to buy it. Ok the prices are low at the moment, but even so, no trial apps? Did I miss something?
I’ve been looking at Apple’s new app store for the last few days, and yesterday it struck me how much like the early days of palm applications it was like. Ten years or so ago places like palmgear were full of applications that wern’t alwas of the highest quality, and that’s what I’m seeing in the early days of the app store. Lots of apps that are fairly simple and don’t really leverage the full potential of the iPhone’s hardware or operating system.
Peter Kirn at CDM has a similar take on the early days of app store. Let’s hope it evolves rapidly.
