Also it seems that Harry McCracken would too in this piece on time about SXSW. It’s only short, but it’s good to see that Artiphon are getting lots of the right kind of attention. I think that’s good for mobile music making as a whole.
So expect loads of pictures, perhaps some video (probably in a few days) and hopefully some big surprises. Who knows. I’ll tell you whatever I can as soon as I can. It’ll be fun anyway!
This looks like a brilliant update for the already brilliant Thumbjam. Load to look forward to here then:

- Fixed issue with VoiceOver and menus
- Fixed longstanding attack envelope consistency issue
