Giving it a good THUMP!


I was going through apps I haven't used in a long time the other day and came across THUMP. I haven't played about with this for a while so rather than delete it I decided to give it another go.

It is still a great little app of the DRUMS + 2 X SYNTH variety, but it has a few tricks up it's sleeves too. My favourite being the ability to set the pitch and filter of the drum samples, which is fairly unique.

It is a real shame that THUMP hasn't been updated since it was first released over a year ago. But there are many apps like that which get no update love even after showing a lot of initial promise.

Never mind, it is still fun to play with.

I posted on a similar service a little while ago, but this site from Google looks really good, and is also international too.

I had a quick play around with it and the detail it gives you on the hardware is fairly comprehensive.

Any chance of a Scratch?

Now that we've seen two BASIC interpreters arrive for the iPhone, the latest being HotPaw, and of course the C64 BASIC too. I wonder if we'll see MIT's Scratch app for the iPhone come back?

That'd be great for kids of all ages!

Blackberry PlayBook runs QNX OS

So the Blackberry tablet is running an OS called QNX which will eventually replace Blackberry OS on their smartphones according to this post at Brighthand.

More importantly I'm told by Omenie (makers of Ellatron and M3000) that QNX has a lot of potential to be a great OS for mobile music. This does depend on RIM making a workable SDK SDK a) native b) free and c) cross-platform.

So, who knows, Blackberry could end up being a mobile music platform! I guess we're a long way from knowing that for sure though.

Add to this that they will need to make it an attractive place to go for developers as well.

Will Amazon release their own Android tablet?

The tablet market seems to get more complicated on a daily basis. A couple of days ago there was news about Amazon starting their own Android app store, which I think is a bit strange, but what I forgot to mention was this post at gadgetlab where there is a suggestion that Amazon will even release their own Android tablet. That I find very strange simply because I don't understand how it will sit with their own Kindle 3 devices.

Does this make sense to anyone?
