Give enemy clouds the finger with this fast and addictive iOS game

There are all sorts of online games to play out there. Some are fairly intellectual and some are more complicated strategy games.

The most intuitive of all internet radio stations

Music is a strange thing. We are all affected by it in different ways and have different expectations when we listen to it. Some of us want to know everything about our favorite artists including their inside leg measurement while others aren't quite so fussy and just want to have some decent and familiar music to while away the hours and hum along to. Music streaming apps have latched onto this and there are now a squillion different places to access the music that you love. Pandora is probably the oldest of the free internet music streaming services and likes to think of itself as the ...  More

Spotify vs Pandora

When Apple handed over US$3 billion to rapper Dr. Dre and producer Jimmy Iovine for their Beats Electronics headphones business recently it signalled a probable change in the way that we will listen to music in the future. With technology moving at such a rapid pace it was only a matter of time before our music listening habits would be put to the test once again.It all began, of course, with vinyl records and the radio being our main sources of listening pleasure. It wasn't until the 70's that the cassette and the much-loved 8 -track were introduced to the world. Then there was the ...  More

The future of music radio streaming begins here

The inference from Apple forking out US$3 million for Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine's Beats headphones and the music streaming service Beats Music is that it's only a matter of time before iTunes and the concept of 'owning music' bites the dust. The way we listen to music is changing. According to recent figures released by Digital Music News, digital downloads are down by around 14% this year alone and the trend seems to be drifting towards radio streaming as a way of accessing music. The concept behind streaming radio is that, when you select an artist or a song, the app will suggest and play ...  More

A social network for creatives with more than fifty shades of grey

Don't panic, MinaGrey is not the follow up to Fifty Shades of Grey! It's far more worthy to me than that poorly written piece of fluff. Let me just say from the outset here. This free, art and writing application is unlike any other app that we've seen before here at the FeedMyApp offices. I guess the best way to describe it is would be as a non-commercial artistic and creative community where musicians, artists, writers and scientists can freely share ideas, concepts and their artistic skills with the rest of the world. It's a social network - run by its users - that is as far removed ...  More

Create your own professional sounding Hip-Hop tracks

If there is one form of music that you could nail to a specific city it is probably Hip-hop and New York. There is a fair bit of Caribbean influence in there too, of course, but it's origins lie in NYC with Grandmaster Flash, the Sugarhill Gang and Africa Bambaataa. Back then it was known as Disco Rap while today it takes on many forms including Rapping and even MC-ing and is one of the most popular forms of music on the planet. These days, the genre is played all over the world by people of all kinds and with varying levels of expertise. Hip Hop Box is a new music app for iOS that aims to ...  More

Play what your fans want to hear rather than your lead guitarist's pick

How many times have you seen the Rolling Stones in concert? I've seen them a couple of times over the years but, to be honest, I don't have a great deal of interest in seeing them again. The problem is, they've had so many iconic songs, it can start to get a little dull when they have to play them each time they perform. I mean, can you imagine the Stones playing live and not playing Honky Tonk Women or Satisfaction or Street Fighting Man or... I rest my case. To their credit, they toured a few years back and asked their fans to choose the set list and it turned into a really interesting ...  More

Find fellow musicians, live gigs and rehearsal rooms around you using geolocalization

It wasn't too many years ago that, if you were a musician, you could rock up to any number of pubs or bars with your instrument and find a whole bunch of other cool musicians to play or jam with. The downturn in the economy and the introduction of distractions like poker machines put paid to that in many cities around the world but there are still plenty of places where it is still possible to strap on the guitar and rock it out with the best of em. MeetMusic is a cool, free music application for iOS and Android that uses geolocalization to put musicians together again and become a ...  More

A mobile diary so you dont forget your raving times

When I was in my teens I went to so many gig sit is hard to remember them all but there was a period there of a year or so where I listed every single band that I saw in a diary. I think it came to about 385 if I remember rightly. I wish I had kept that diary. You'd have to spend a small fortune to see that many bands these days with current gig prices. I guess the modern day equivalent of that is the 'rave' music scene but, with so many punters being under the influence of one thing or the other, I have a feeling that not many 'ravers' would be able to remember everything that happened ...  More
