Best music recommendations we get come from our friends. We love music and love our friends, but listening to a full album takes time. What if there was a way to get an idea of that new hot album in just 1 minute? MixTab grabs the tracks you selected, takes a random 11-seconds part from each and mixes the fragments into one track, putting fade-in/fade-out effects on the track cuts.
2012. Text and Glory
Different ways to use plain text files. Many apps store your data in their own proprietary database and file format. That’s not the way we want things to be. Plain text files can be opened in every text editor ever made and they are flexible enough to be used for taking notes, managing tasks and even creating basic html pages.
With AppCatcher you can see what apps your friends wrote about and latest apps that were reviewed and mentioned in a handpicked selection of popular blogs and websites. With AppCatcher I’m trying to find a better way to discover great mobile apps.
