Dream Draw on Spotify


I’ve finally managed to get a release out on Spotify. That is to say, I managed to get it out at the end of last year. It’s called ‘Dream Draw‘. You can have a listen by heading over to Spotify. I hope you like it.

All of the tracks were made on mobile using Aurora Sound Studio on an iPhone and iPad. Various effects were used during the creation of the EP. I quite like it.

Good things coming in Day One version 2.0

I’m a big fan of the Day One journal app. I find it really useful. It seems that there’s a lot of new stuff coming in the next big iteration of the app. Here’s what’s coming:

  • Multiple Journals— In Day One 2.0 you can create and name multiple journals
  • Multiple Photos— A simple and elegant solution for adding multiple photos per entry

It looks like it’ll be really cool, but I hope they won’t mess up a load of other stuff at the same time.

How’s that Pebble then?

So, a couple of days into my use of the Pebble Time, how’s it going? Well so far so good. Today I was interested to see how the constant bluetooth LE connection would drain my iPhone 6. It seemed to add an additional drain, but not too much. So that’s a good sign, a good step forward.

Notifications are pretty good though. I quite like them even though they get a little bit annoying at times, but I think that’s more to do with my having too many on my iPhone anyway, so perhaps it’s a good prompt to clear those up.

Next I’m interested to see how I can do more with the Pebble and get it working for me in the way I’d really like it to. More of that soon though.

So Belkin are making a lego case for the iPhone 6

I’ve been checking to see if there was one available every now and then, but I got bored of wondering so I just asked Belkin, and they told me that they are making one! Which is excellent as I’d always liked the one I had for my iPhone 5. I just hope it doesn’t take too much longer.

iPhone 6 update

Well, after spending an entire day out in London my new (arrived on Friday) iPhone 6 has made it through the entire day on a single charge. Something that my iPhone 5 hasn’t done in years. Well, probably at least a year to be fair. It did end up at only 10% of charge by the end of the day, but that was after almost 14 hours without charge. I think that’s quite impressive. For an iPhone anyway.

iPhone 5 external battery experiment: Day 4

Day 4 followed the same pattern. I let the iPhone drain down to 30% charge and then charged it with the external battery. Once again the battery did very well, but after getting my phone back up to 100% charge it gave up itself. So, 4 days and 4 charges. Not bad going I’d say. The battery was  certainly worth the money.

However, the power loss on my iPhone is terrible now, so it’ll probably need replacing anyway. Even so I think that the battery will come in handy in the future.

So, experiment over for now.
