  1. Three 303-type apps for the iPhone?? Not counting NoiseIO (truley dreadful non-standard interface guys)- it’s sooooo boring.Okay Palm Sounds, want a winner? It has to be “Bassline” imo. Cos those x-y controllers rock- with an interface like the touch one. Dead easy, dead hands on- perfect.but then the 303 on iPhone theme gets it in the knackers……Randgrid comes second- only cos it has drums -but I still cant figure out how it works 😦 The worst is that one made by Pure Profit . that name imo sums them up- except it looks like they may have “less profit” now 😉 “Android” was awesome. I was really expecting these guys to do something totally cool with the technology that they had for Android- but we get this lump of leather instead- why?!? It’s all wrong- including that interface- just looking at you trying to move those silly ‘realistic knobs’. Sorry for the rant, but Apple stuff used to be the platform for those cutting edge wares- remember Cellsynth, Metasynth, Supercollider etc etc..? Er, Logic?! 🙂 So whatthappened guys? Why does the iPhone music app scene have to be so ‘normal’?IMO Microbe on Palm is still the handheld 303 clone-king.
