Loopy, the live looper app for iPhone and iPad

Loopy, the live looper app for iPhone and iPad | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
Loopy, the sophisticated, tactile live looper app that reinvents iPhone and iPad music making. Layer up to 12 loops with overdub, stereo, count-in, variable tempo, import/export, and full MIDI clock and control support.
John Pearce's insight:

Having heard the Melbourne based developer of the Loopy app interviewed on local 774 radio https://soundcloud.com/774-abc-melbourne/loopy-the-tonight-show-performance  and checking the YouTube link from the Jimmy Fallon Show featuring Billy Joel and the Loopy App, ( and especially as the HD iPad app is on sale for half price), I just had to grab a copy. After a quick play I can see that I am going to be "wasting" a lot of time "going loopy". This is a must have app for anyone musically inclined and I can see it really taking off in classrooms.

Where Speech Recognition Is Going

Where Speech Recognition Is Going | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"Until recently, the idea of holding a conversation with a computer seemed pure science fiction. If you asked a computer to “open the pod bay doors”—well, that was only in movies.
But things are changing, and quickly. A growing number of people now talk to their mobile smart phones, asking them to send e-mail and text messages, search for directions, or find information on the Web."
