The Orchestra for iPad Redefines Music Appreciation — iPad App Review By Emily | December 13, 2012 | No comment yet TouchPress’ The Orchestra for iPad aims are encyclopedic. This new iPad-only app from the British developer covers the interments that comprise the orchestra as well as going in-depth to break down scores from well-known pieces. Created in conjunction with London’s Philharmonia Orchestra and its principal conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen, the Orchestra directs the reader’s attention to both individual instruments as well as the symphony orchestra as a whole. The app’s splash screen scrolls through the eight works it includes. Rather than static encyclopedia-style entries, each instrument entry includes a video interview with a member of the Philharmonia, a musical clip that showcases the instrument, as well as the instrument’s range, frequency, size, and its correspondence to the piano range when appropriate or samples of the sounds of the instrument (e.g. snare drum) that do not follow the piano’s scale.
Flipboard Officially Arrives for Android, Offers Magazine-Style News Reading to All I absolutely love this app on my Droid Bionic, and with 4G now in my area, navigating articles is fast and smooth. But there's one feature that I REALLY wish they would add: Offline article tagging When I'm flipping through articles, I often find myself tapping the "Read later" menu choice to pipe the article over to "Pocket" for later reading. I'd like to be able to select an article for later offline reading. I've suggested this to the developers, and hopefully something might come of this, but it may take more people contacting them to nudge this forward. What do you think?
