PLANET OF THE APPS: 11TH SEPTEMBER 2012

Post categories:

Jon Teamlaverne Jon Teamlaverne | 11:00 UK time, Tuesday, 11 September 2012

App know-it-all Stuart Dredge returns to talk you through some of the best bits out this week:

 

Habu Music

Habu Music is the latest smartphone and tablet app promising to help you discover new, amazing music. Its twist: the music is presented by mood, with playlists based on things like 'sensual', 'peaceful', 'cool' and 'rowdy'.

 

Indie Shuffle

This is another 'smart playlists' app that aims to serve up new music, but this time based on the popular Indie Shuffle website. Choose a song in genres like indie rock, hip-hop and electronic, hit play, and enjoy (in theory) a stream of goodness.

 

John Cage Piano

Celebrate the 100th birthday of composer John Cage by playing a virtual version of his 'prepared' piano - basically this involved putting a load of old metal bits and bobs under his piano's strings to "create an entirely new instrument". And now you can do it on an iPad with no nails or bolts required.
