Rock & Roll With Duck & Roll – iPad App Review

No one understands the hard life of a rocker. First, your parents tell you to “turn that racket down.” Then, you try to start a band but no one knows how to play AC/DC covers. Then, you enter a Battle of the Bands contest where the winner gets a record deal. That’s how it is in real life, right?

In Duck & Roll, players follow the life of a struggling musician who also happens to be a duck. He is a bit of a foul-mouthed fowl, but at least his cussing is represented with the word “duck” instead of the bad one that rhymes.

Rise of the Guardians Movie Storybook Deluxe Extends the Magic — iPad App Review

Along with the paperback novelizations that populate the super market checkout aisle, sticker books, and stuffed animals, iOS apps that re-tell popular childhood movies are now a standard offering with each release.

Rise of the Guardians Movie Storybook Deluxe parallels the plot of Dreamworks’ newly released movie. Both movie and storybook app were inspired by William Joyce‘s novels and picture books, which are set 200 years before the movie. Though the movie tells an original story, Joyce executive-produced the movie and his creative DNA runs throughout the storybook, especially in its illustrations.

TrueMetronome Creates Near Perfect, Zero Latency Beats With Style

TrueMetronome recently launched in the app store for musicians with a particularly trained ear for rhythm. Other metronome apps don’t quite hit the beat at the exact moment they are supposed to. This tick-tock app boasts zero latency and is being called the most accurate metronome in the app store.

This app is minimalistic in design. It does one thing- tap out a beat. There are no multiple click sounds or different styles. There is one sound, plus one accent bell, and that is it.

The developers spent a lot of time creating a sound that is realistic. Most digital metronomes produce a short clip of audio that cuts out after the click, leaving dead air after the sound. This app creates a beat that doesn’t effect gradual decay of sound so that you hear a more natural click. Read More »
