Welcome to Palm Sounds. If you’ve got here then you’re interested in making music on some kind of mobile device and that’s great.

You may be wondering what is PalmSounds about?
And that’s a good question. The blog has up to date news and opinion about new mobile music making apps and hardware on the iPhone, iPad, Android and also other platforms including Palm, Windows Mobile (although there’s very little news about these to be fair). Also any other news or interesting information about what you can do to make music on the go, be that hardware, software or anything else for that matter.

Who is PalmSounds?
PalmSounds was created by me (Ashley) in 2006 when mobile music creation was really still in it’s infancy. So that’s before the iPhone, the iPad and before Android. Back then you could make music on a PDA (personal digital assistant) and smartphones were just emerging.

How can I connect in to the PalmSounds world?
You can connect to PalmSounds in a variety of ways, via Twitter, Facebook. Also, if you want to connect to me on Linkedin then click here.

Palm Sounds did other stuff too …
Apart from being the longest running mobile music blog PalmSounds also used to get involved in lots of other stuff too. Mainly mobile related of course. Here’s a couple of examples of the things I was involved in:

  • SoundLab – A project helping people with learning difficulties create music and collaborate with others to make music.
  • Music Tech Pitch 4.5 – An event for Music Tech Start ups to pitch their ideas

Here’s some more about SoundLab

As mentioned above the SoundLab project was something that I was heavily involved with up until around the end of 2018. If you’re interested in it, here are some more posts about it.

  1. Not sure if this is the best place to put this comment. I’ve enjoyed Palm Sounds for a couple years now. It’s my main source for mobile music news, particularly IOS devices and apps. Thanks for all you do!

    The new WordPress site looks great but I have to say I miss the old mobile-friendly view – the one with all the headlines and fewer pictures until you clicked into one. If there is a way to bring something like that back with WorPress it would make it even mo betta.


    1. Hi Jim, sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I’ll take a look at that. Probably just my fault for not configuring the mobile views properly. Thanks for letting me know.
