Brian Eno Released Another iPhone Application - Trope

Brian Eno, has released a second iPhone application Trope, developed with the help of designer and musician Peter Chilvers. The new app lets users create their own ambient music by drawing patterns with their fingers. The shape of each pattern creates a different tone.

Unlike the first Eno app, Bloom, Trope is described as producing darker music that is "more introspective, more atmospheric." Particular moods can be selected from an accompanying palette.

The software requires a device with iPhone 2.2 firmware or better. For the sake of fidelity it is recommended that people use either headphones or external speakers, instead of earbuds or built-in speakers.

"Trope is a different emotional experience from Bloom - more introspective, more atmospheric. It shows that generative music, as one of the newest forms of sonema, can draw on a broad palette of moods." - Brian Eno.

Trope is available now on the App Store for £2.39 ($3.99), and Eno stresses that it's different from its predecessor.

iPhone outruns BlackBerry in app use and social networks

Compete, a TNS Media company, today released the results from its quarterly Smartphone Intelligence survey, which provides behavioral and survey-based insights into how consumers are using their iPhones and other "smart" devices.

iPhone owners are much more likely to download apps and get involved with social networking than their BlackBerry-owning counterparts, Compete revealed today in a new study.

Key findings include:
- 73 percent of Blackberry owners have downloaded 5 or fewer applications; in contrast, 72 percent of iPhone owners have downloaded 10 or more applications.
- Facebook is hot among iPhone owners: 71 percent of iPhone users report accessing Facebook from their mobile device, 37 percent listed Facebook as one of their top three most utilized apps and 18 percent claim it's their favorite app.
- 30 percent of all smartphone owners are either comfortable or very comfortable receiving targeted marketing on their device.

The researchers add that iPhone owners are more willing to buy their apps than BlackBerry owners.

iPhone users are also significantly more likely to have a Twitter account (26% versus 15%) and are more than twice as likely to actually use Twitter on their phones, at 26% compared to 10%. Industry-wide, only 45% have Facebook accounts and 19% have Twitter accounts, and 85% of smartphone Twitter users actually choose to use the website instead.Regardless of platform, 83% of users prefer apps that cost below $5.

In addition to networking activities, smartphone owners are open to receiving targeted marketing via their device. What types of offers make the best candidates for marketers trying to reach networked consumers? Impulse and leisure purchases tend to be easier to digest than big, highly considered ones. Therefore, nearly half of smartphone owners are receptive to location-based offers at restaurants and offers to save and pursue at their leisure, and 45% would use mobile grocery coupons.

AT&T Announces MMS Launch Date for iPhone

AT&T has finally announced the release day of MMS for iPhone 3G and 3GS users and that launch day is: September 25.

AT&T points to the need for the company to build out its network infrastructure to handle the demands of heavy MMS messaging volumes as the primary reason for the delay in launching the service compared to carriers in other countries that have offered MMS since the launch of iPhone OS 3.0 in June.

AT&T’s only explanation for the long delay in unveiling the service was, “to give our customers a positive experience from day one and we needed to make sure our network is ready to handle what we expect will be a record volume of MMS traffic.”

As was announced earlier, MMS messaging will be included at no additional cost to users with an iPhone text messaging plan. MMS will be enabled through a software update.

Spotify Music App for iPhone Is Now Available

Digital music service Spotify launched mobile versions of its popular music streaming application. Spotify for iPhone and iPod touch has been approved by Apple and is available in the App Store. The new application is also available, for the owners of Google Android-powered smartphones, at the Android Market.

The Apple iPhone, iPod touch and Android apps also allows playlists to be downloaded and played in offline mode when users have no connection, are on a plane or subway, or abroad and subject to roaming data fees. The size of a playlist is only limited by available storage space and they can be used for maximum of 30 days before you need to go back online — so no signing up for Spotify for a month, creating a 32Gb playlist and cancelling your subscription.

Spotify Mobile is free for both platforms, but you’ll need to sign up for a Spotify Premium account before you can use it and that’ll cost you £10 a month.

The Spotify App is available to Spotify Premium subscribers in the U.K., Sweden, Spain, France, Norway and Finland, the company said. Features include access to Spotify’s catalogue of songs, streaming and browsing capability and synchronized playlists.

New Alarm Clock ICF-CL75iP for iPhone

Sony has released an Alarm clock named ICF-CL75iP with hidden dock station for iPhone or iPod. The dock has a gigabyte of built-in memory for music or video files.

You can store and play music (mp3, WMA), and movies (MP4, Motion JPEG and AVI) on the device. And in true Billy Mays fashion, wait, there’s more – a FM/AM radio (with 39 total presets), and the option to either wake up via radio, iPod/iPhone, nature sounds (Sea Waves, Birds, Rain, Brook, Under the Sea), or through a 10 second voice recording.

The 7-inch screen have 800 x 400 pixel resolution, while in the default setting it will display Time, Calendar, Wallpapers pulled from your iPhone/iPod, Alarm, etc. The clock can wake you up to AM/FM, iPhone, nature sounds, or a ten second voice recording of your choice.

The Sony ICF-CL75iP Alarm Clock iPhone Dock will be available in October for around $180.
