webOS SDK goes into public beta

Palm are taking their Ares SDK to public beta, but the SDK is totally web based. My question is, can you (that’s you and not me) make music applications on this SDK?

Circuit Synth

Another very nice looking modular synth arrives at the app store today. Here’s what it does:

Design your own instrument by wiring up simple modules. Included are three kinds of oscillators (sine wave, square wave, and sawtooth wave), a noise generator, and modules for combining and modifying signals. Dabble in techniques like additive synthesis and frequency modulation just by choosing different arrangements and wirings.

iVidCam, another 3G video app

I’ve tried iVideoCamera and Camcorder which is the weakest so far. Here’s another called iVidCam, This one doesn’t save to the camera roll but use a wifi transfer. Also this app claims to have the highest frame rate for a 3G. I’m not sure that I’m in the market for another 3G video app, but if you try it and it is worth it please let me know.

Radio apps: Thanks all

Thanks to everyone who gave suggestions about which radio app to get. There were lots of excellent suggestions. In the end I went for ooTunes as it seemed to have a very wide set of features including recording and twitter integration.
