I’m a big fan of mobile applications. It started with the Palm OS and Windows Mobile, and has continued with iOS and Android. Who knows where mobile apps will go to next, it’s a journey, and an interesting one at that. If you’re looking for more on mobile apps then also check out the menu sections for pages on specific apps and things I’ve done with them.
I’ve been playing with Roli Blocks again, and this time, I’m actually getting into it. I’m starting to find it quite useful and creatively inspiring. It is early days as yet, but I’m getting some results.
So I thought I’d share some very small videos of what I’ve been doing.
I’ve been meaning to mention this and just haven’t gotten around to it as yet, at least not here anyway. So, PalmSounds is kind of on hold as I’ve moved writing my mobile content to CDM now. I think it’s a good move. It means that mobile music content will hopefully get a much bigger audience, and as things move and converge I believe CDM will be a better place to see that through.
NinerPaint was a totally amazing app for Palm OS. It was one of the best Palm OS apps around. Now it’s coming to iOS, and, it’s coming back to Palm OS as well. This is brilliant news. As soon as it’s available I’ll let you know.
I’m a big fan of Workflow. It’s an amazing app for automating pretty much anything in iOS. I’ve been using it since it first launched and it’s got better and better with every release.
Now Apple has bought it. In some ways I think that might be good. It might mean that automation and even scripting becomes a part of iOS at its core. On the other hand it could be a bad thing. I’d hate to see something as innovative as Workflow get dumbed down by Apple. That would be terrible.
Only time will tell what happens next but my hope is that Apple really build on the foundations that Workflow have laid down and add more to it.
