music player

Like a DJ in your pocket, Splyce is a beautiful music player that lets you select songs and order the playlist before mixing the beats, displaying visual effects, creating a light show and more. All it takes is just some basic instruction from you, and Splyce will get the party started.

Use the app as an everyday music player, at get-togethers with friends, or while you’re at the gym. The app displays the beats per minute for every song, so you can take that into consideration when crafting your playlist. Hit the jump and I’ll show you how it works. (more…)

When it comes to app functionality, I find that there’s a great debate between some iPhone users. On one side, you find users that enjoy apps that are packed full of features; so many features in fact, that it’s sometimes hard to wrap your head around how many are available for use. Other users insist that apps with a sole functionality (or a minimal amount of features) are better because the app’s developer can focus solely on getting that function right, which leads to a better user experience.

In terms of music players, it’s safe to say that the first-party Music app doesn’t provide a laundry list of features, but instead provides the core functionality needed to play music (although it is a tad dull). On the other hand, you have third-party music players like Groove 2, which is teeming with features. But for those that want a music player that has a good amount of features, and is bundled with a gorgeous interface, I find Ecoute to be a suitable choice. Find out why after the jump. (more…)

The way in which we listen to music in vehicles has changed quite a bit over the past 60 years. For the longest time, radio was the only way of to jam to your favorite tunes, but the invention of the 8-track, cassette and compact disc revolutionized people’s ability to listen to music they wanted to on-demand. Nowadays, the majority of new cars feature an auxiliary port (or USB port) that allows you to connect your iPhone (or other music playing device) so that you can listen to any of the hundreds or thousands of songs you have saved.

However, one of the big dangers of using your iPhone to play music while driving is the distraction it causes by making you focus on your device instead of on the road. To help make it a bit safer to drive and control your tunes at the same time, developer Ryan Oksenhorn created CarTunes, a gesture based music player for your iPhone. Find out more after the jump.

AppStorm does not condone any activity that distracts a driver from the responsibilities of operating a motor vehicle. While CarTunes does aim to make it safer to control your iPhone while driving, it’s important that you always follow state laws when using your cell phone while driving.
