I posted the other day about GameSalad who are developing an application for building games and deploying them to the web and iphone platforms. Well, having had an enormous response they’ve set up a blog which you can find here.
This app has just turned up on the App Store and it sounds quite interesting. This is what the web site says about it:
Developed by ambient pioneer Brian Eno and musician/software designer Peter Chilvers, Bloom explores uncharted territory in the realm of applications for the iPhone and iPod touch. Part instrument, part composition and part artwork, Bloom’s innovative controls allow anyone to create elaborate patterns and unique melodies by simply tapping the screen. A generative music player takes over when Bloom is left idle, creating an infinite selection of compositions and their accompanying visualisations.
“Bloom is an endless music machine, a music box for the 21st century. You can play it, and you can watch it play itself.” – Brian Eno
I’m going to give it a go and see what it is like.
ITM have a story about the fact that they have had 10,000 downloads of their MIDILab app in the last 4 days. Which is incredible really.
Haplome is after beta testers if anyone is interested in taking up the offer.
Thanks to Pete’s comments about Mixtikl:
When Mixtikl comes out, maybe you’ll need a new “trans-platform” category. 🙂
BTW, when you see list of features that we’ve packed-in to Mixtikl for first release, it is pretty mind-boggling. 🙂
Mixtikl should be entering Beta in a week or two; we’ll hopefully then be in a position to launch it a few weeks after that. We’ll keep you posted! 🙂
I can’t wait, and he is probably right, I will need a new category!
