A new and rather unusual app arrives for the iPhone. It’s not something that is going to be handy for everyone, but it’s certainly an interesting idea. Here’s the app’s description:
With OSCNotation, live-coders and computer musicians can integrate instrumentalist into their performance by sending OSC messages to display musical notation on their collaborators’ iPhones or iPods. Rhythm and note values are updated independently, so they may easily transpose a pattern while keeping the rhythm intact (or vice-versa).
And it is a free app too.
So Apple have sent out invitations for their event on the 23rd of this month. Everyone expects an iPad Mini. In fact, there may be complaints if one doesn’t show up. But what would you like to see?
As I’ve said before I’m still not 100% sold on the idea of an iPad Mini. I can’t place it as yet, except in terms of price. I think that if Apple want to compete against Android tablets then this may be a good strategy. But I have to ask myself why it is they’d want to compete on price? It isn’t something they’ve done before, in fact, quite the opposite. So, I return to my question. What’s it all about?
