MusicMessages!

MusicMessages! is a collaborative step sequencer for the iMessage App Store (iPhone, iPad). Using the simple and (hopefully) intuitive interface, you can punch in a few chords or a percussion line and send the message off to your friends, who can then make their own changes and send it back. Five instrument layers and over 40 MIDI instruments are available to use. Bonus: if you have an iPhone 7, the note buttons respond to pressure and "pop" like bubble wrap with the help of the Taptic engine!

App search engine that filters out fake reviews

While developing mobile apps, I realized how rife the App Store is with rating/review manipulation. So, I created apprecs.com, a facade for the store that allows you to filter out many of the fake, coerced, or otherwise manipulated reviews. You can also filter by other criteria such as how recently the app was last updated and age/gender of the typical user. What do you think? I'm getting started on adding Android (Google Play) support today. [more inside]

Backgroundifier

Backgroundifier is a Mac OSX droplet-style app that converts image files of any size into pretty desktop backgrounds. Any image will work, but fine art and illustration looks the best. (You can see examples of the output on the app homepage.) There's a command line mode in addition to the GUI: if you go into the Backgroundifier.app bundle, you can either call into the Backgroundifier executable directly from Terminal (with the caveat that you can only save to and read from your ~/Pictures directory — sandboxing, sorry!), or alternatively extract the un-sandboxed command line utility from the Resources directory. On my laptop, I've even set up an Automator script that watches my primary pictures directory, automatically converts any new additions via shell script, and outputs the results to the directory I use for my desktop backgrounds. The app costs a buck, but most of it is open source. (I decided to exclude the UI nib file from the repo, at least for the time being.) It's written in Swift 2. You can find the repo here. Unfortunately, it's just a little bit out of date, but all the image conversion stuff should work fine. [more inside]

I wrote my first app!

I've been teaching myself programming, and this is the first app I've ever completed. (Android-only for now -- it's available through the Google Play Store - and I'm open to any suggestions/feedback/encouragement anyone wants to give.) It's free - with no advertising - so it's not meant to make any money. Just wanted to prove to myself that I really could do it, so the whole project stayed simple and positive. [more inside]

MIDIPilot

I have recently written a MIDI control surface app for the iPad. It currently has six layouts, consisting of combinations of piano keyboards (with pitch bender), and ribbons and XY pads, which can be configured to send different MIDI control events. It works over WiFi, talking to the open-source DSMIDIWiFi client. [more inside]

Emerging Technologies Summer Institute: Crowdsourced Professional Development

There's tons of cool web apps out there that may or may not be useful to you; I often learn about these apps through Twitter or other social media when my colleagues and friends discover something they think is awesome. So this summer I thought I'd try to gather all that discovery together in one place, so that those of us who are interested could influence each other and spark some ideas. I've invited anyone who's interested to post a screencast of their favourite internet finds, and show us why they think it's cool, for the month of July only. [more inside]
