Rockmate lets you and your bandmates jam on one iPad

Posted: 14 Dec 2011 09:53 AM PST

Not sure why we haven’t seen this sooner (or at least none that I’ve come across before), but Finger Labs has just released Rockmate, an app that allows up to 4 people compose, record and play songs on a single iPad.

Rockmate is a breakthrough music creation app. It turns your iPad into a complete music studio easy and super fun to use.
You can compose, record and play songs with up to 4 Rock players on one single iPad. Rockmate is easy to play with smart chords progressions, sounds great with separated guitar effects and in-house produced audio samples and is also fully customizable with multiple drums and keyboard styles.

Rockmate is ready to rock !
Your guitars are always well tuned, no need to carry your drum kit or to patch your keyboard. A smart metronome and a real-time looper will assist you in composing and recording your songs. Share your songs by email or iTunes sharing folders.

And by the looks of it, Rockmate doesn’t appear to be a gimmicky music app. Take a look at the video demo after this space.

Rockmate Fingerlab, Rockmate, – $0.99

Act Of Fury: Kraine’s Revenge in Review – A Shooter With No Shooting?

Posted: 14 Dec 2011 07:13 AM PST

Judging by the iTunes description for Act of Fury I had a feeling it was going to be something different, and boy was I right.  It's a scrolling shooter.. kind of.  The thing is, while it looks the part and controls like one, you don't actually shoot anything.  Instead, you use the powers imbued in you by a failed experiment in order to destroy things that you get close to.  Between the unique game play mechanic, the variable upgrade system and the need to revisit old levels in order to progress further in the game, Act Of Fury takes scrolling shooters in a direction that I rather like.

Snapheal arrives on Mac App Store

Posted: 13 Dec 2011 07:14 PM PST

Snapheal for the Mac was released on the Mac App Store earlier this morning. Brought to you by MacPhun, makers of the excellent iOS photo editing app FX Photo Studio (TMA Review), Snapheal lets you perform object removals and other complex touch ups without any prior knowledge of photoshop. It’s a matter of choosing areas you want to remove/touch up, hitting a button, and Snapheal’s algorithm does the rest. Here’s what it do:

  • Remove unwanted objects from the image
  • Make skin imperfections vanish
  • Erase unwanted text (watermarks, etc)
  • Dramatically enhance photos with clone & stamp tool
  • Lighten dark areas
  • Sharpen images
  • Add blur
  • Import pictures from Aperture and iPhoto
  • Adjust saturation, gamma, light levels, shadows and much more

Judging from the demo video, Snapheal does work “magic” and it truly makes removing objects from photos a painless process. Best of all, you won’t have to spend a whole lot for this promising photo app. Normally at $19.99, Snapheal is now on sale for only $9.99. Check out the videos and full app description after the break.
