SoundCloud » SoundCloud for iPad

SoundCloud » SoundCloud for iPad | iPad:  mobile Living, Learning, Lurking, Working, Writing, Reading ... | Scoop.it
Our aim at SoundCloud is to provide you with a way to create and share sounds across platforms. In previous episodes, we brought you SoundCloud for iPhone, for Mac and for Android and your feedback for all three apps has been tremendous.
The iPad is a revolutionary device that has changed the way we interact with content of all types. Our amazing iOS and design teams have created a fantastic app to reflect this, enabling you to interact with the sounds shared with you in a very intuitive way.

Aside from the iOS features you know by now, some of the highlights of the iPad app include:

More intuitive: Flowing screens to help navigate and discover sounds more easily along with simplified ‘stream’ and ‘activity’ tabs.
More waveform: More space to interact with the newly designed waveform allowing you to add comments directly to the waveform and see them scroll as a sound plays.
More social: Easier to ‘find & follow’ people and now record dedicated private messages to someone with a single tap.
More visual: Larger profile images throughout the app.

Purdue University Introduces New App: Jetpack

Purdue University Introduces New App: Jetpack | iPad:  mobile Living, Learning, Lurking, Working, Writing, Reading ... | Scoop.it

This week Purdue University launched a new app for students. Developed by ITaP, Jetpack is an eReader style catch all for course materials. Users of the app can download ‘packs’ that contain all materials pertaining to a course or subject. Materials such as class handouts, assigned readings, videos, audio and important links are stored in the packs for quick reference or light studying.

One of the best features is that Jetpack locally stores the data on your mobile device. This means you don’t need to have an Internet connection to view your packs and you don’t have to wait for downloads. Other great features include embedded rich media, HTML5 interactivity and shared comments that are synchronized across devices for easy collaboration. But it does not stop there, Jetpack has more in store for us including “location aware content, QR codes, augmented reality with 3D models, and social integration.”

Gratis-Tool zur Bildbearbeitung: BeFunky Photo Editor - appgefahren.de

Gratis-Tool zur Bildbearbeitung: BeFunky Photo Editor - appgefahren.de | iPad:  mobile Living, Learning, Lurking, Working, Writing, Reading ... | Scoop.it

Der BeFunky Photo Editor (App Store-Link) kann dauerhaft gratis aus dem App Store geladen werden, und das bei einer Größe von 24,4 MB leider nur aus einem WLAN-Netzwerk. Allerdings ist es möglich, zu Beginn die Sprache der App auf deutsch einzustellen, um sich nicht mit englischen Fotobegriffen herumschlagen zu müssen.
Wirft man einen Blick auf den BeFunky Photo Editor, stellt man fest, dass dieser sowohl eine klassische Bildbearbeitung als auch eine Menge Filter und Rahmen zur Verfügung stellt. Selbstverständlich kann man seine Fotos in Kontrast und Helligkeit, im Farbton, Sättigung und der Schärfe ausrichten, ebenfalls vorhanden ist eine Crop- und Rotations-Funktion. Die Bilder können entweder aus der Camera Roll oder direkt über die Kamera geladen werden.

Sparkasse verschenkt Banking-Apps für iPhone und iPad - appgefahren.de

Sparkasse verschenkt Banking-Apps für iPhone und iPad - appgefahren.de | iPad:  mobile Living, Learning, Lurking, Working, Writing, Reading ... | Scoop.it

... Zum Beispiel die beiden Banking-Apps der Sparkasse. Die sind nämlich zum Anlass des Weltspartags am Freitag kostenlos, kosten sonst 79 Cent für das iPhone und immerhin 1,59 Euro für das iPad. Die Sparkasse selbst spricht bei den beiden Apps von der kleinsten Filiale der Welt.
Der Funktionsumfang von S-Banking (iPhone/iPad) kann sich wirklich sehen lassen und beschränkt sich im übrigen nicht nur auf Sparkassen – auch Konten anderer Banken können hinzugefügt werden, jetzt kann man die Kompatibilität problemlos in einem Praxixtest prüfen.
Nun aber zu den Funktionen. Neben einer Abfrage des Kontostands kann man natürlich auch Umsätze und deren Details anzeigen, Überweisungen durchführen und Daueraufträge verwalten. Eine komplette Liste der Funktion kann übrigens im App Store eingesehen werden.

Explore Vincent Arrives On iPad -- AppAdvice | iPad:  mobile Living, Learning, Lurking, Working, Writing, Reading ... | Scoop.it

Vincent Van Gogh sold only one of his paintings during his short lifetime, dying in 1890 broke and suffering from mental illness. Today, his masterpieces are known throughout the world and sell for millions of dollars. These and other facts are brought to life in the new iPad app, Explore Vincent, available now in the App Store.

Created by Van Gogh Brabant and Qlvr, an interactive media agency, Explore Vincent includes 15 animated clips and six educational games. While specifically geared towards the school-aged set, the app is something that anyone with an interest in art or culture should find enjoyable.

SoundCloud Launches a Sleek, Super-Functional iPad App

SoundCloud Launches a Sleek, Super-Functional iPad App | iPad:  mobile Living, Learning, Lurking, Working, Writing, Reading ... | Scoop.it

The social audio sharing site SoundCloud upgraded its iOS app today, adding a tablet-friendly UI for iPad users. The app lets users find and listen to tracks, comment on waveforms, connect with others and record audio using the iPad's microphone.
When the first iPad launched in early 2010, one of the biggest criticisms leveled against it was that it was too heavily geared toward passive consumption of content, and lacked many of the participatory features of the Web. As the iOS platform has evolved and Apple has updated the hardware to include a camera, the iPad has grown into more of a read/write device.

Just as other iPad apps allow for the creation and publication of text, photos and video, Soundcloud lets you record and publish snippets of audio from the device. In the process, you can share it on Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, including any brand pages your Facebook account has administrative access to.

In addition to posting audio clips, users can interact with others by commenting on individual sound files. Those comments can be added at specific points in the audio waveform, just like on the service's website ..

If Web 2.0 has taught us anything, it’s to play nicely together. Sure, there are times for buckling down and working alone, but in most cases, the collaborative process boosts everyone’s game. In progressives schools across the country, students and teachers are learning from each other in all sorts of ways.


Lenny Gonzalez
Napa New Tech High students working together.
Sharing information and connecting with others — whether we know them personally or not — has proven to be a powerful tool in education. Students are collaborating with each other through social media to learn more about specific subjects, to test out ideas and theories, to learn facts, and to gauge each others’ opinions.

Natürlich kann das iPad kein Computer mit Photoshop ersetzen, doch für kleine und unkomplizierte Korrekturen, zum Beispiel für Urlaubfotos, reicht Photogene aus.
Die Applikation vereint diverse Funktionen und hilft dabei die eigenen Fotos aufzupeppen. Bilder können ausgeschnitten und gedreht werden, zusätzlich lassen sich Farben anpassen, Comic-artige Sprechblasen hinzufügen oder aber auch Bildeffekte kinderleicht verwalten. Das bearbeitete Bild kann danach abgespeichert und via Facebook, Twitter, oder Dropbox geteilt werden.
