As a student, I am always on the go jumping from class to class, or hopping the bus to get across campus. My schedule does not work in tandem with my compositional desires. I used to revert to my voice recorder to try to grab any kind of melody that would pop into my head, until I met Symphony Pro for the iPad.
Symphony Pro is a fully-fledged music notation app designed exclusively for the iPad. With the portability of Apple’s tablet device, and the ease of use of iOS, let’s see how anyone can sit down and notate professional-looking sheet music on the go.
This is the third installment in our Buyer’s Guide series, in which we try to lay out what kinds of things you should buy for your iPad; or, in spirit of the season, what you can get for the person who already owns the most-wanted gift of the year!

This week I’m pleased to have had the chance to interview Dennis Lee, PlayUp’s U.S. Head of Product. PlayUp is a new app that touts itself as the first global social network dedicated to live sport. It features live scores for more than 20,000 games a year and connects all of the live action to you and your friends, allowing you to message one another in Real Time – for Free!
What better time to hear about PlayUp and the idea behind it than now, ahead of the gluttony of holiday sports events!

It’s getting near the end of 2011, so I thought it would be fitting to follow Apple’s lead and look at a few of the best apps from the past year! Apple’s App Store Rewind 2011 touts two grand winners, one ‘iPad App of the Year’ and one ‘iPad Game of the Year’, alongside several selections in all 21 categories – I’m going to pick out some of our favourites!

Managing a project can be an exhausting and tedious task. Keeping track of various assignments and the current status of team members can be overwhelming, especially if you are doing it the analog way or using a very complicated piece of software, which requires you to study the handbook for every simple step along the way. Before long, you’ll be frustrated and find the project spiraling out of control, because you can’t bear to look at the project schedule (sound familiar?).
That’s where Timeli comes to rescue. The iPad app allows you to input your important data quickly, manage it visually and rely on many gestures you already know from iOS. Believe it or not, project management can actually be fun. We’ll show you how after the break…
I have a slight regret about my iPad 2.
I bought a 16GB without hesitation but have found myself wishing, on more than one occasion, that I’d splashed out and grabbed a 32GB or 64GB instead. With myriad apps available and the incredible potential of the iPad to be the perfect portable media player, there is so much more I could do with that extra space!
I’m intrigued to see what AppStorm readers have, do they tend towards splashing out or sticking with the standard?
How much storage does your iPad have?
This poll has a secondary question that I’d love you to remark on in the comments! Is the extra expense worth it?
It costs a significant amount more to get that bonus storage space in your iPad, is the extra utility worth the cash? As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts – simply post a comment below!
Apple’s iPad TV ads are gloriously seductive. They ooze minimalism and simplicity while simultaneously urging you to find this great new device a place in your life…
To have your app selected to be part of Apple’s official iPad marketing campaign, to be showcased on the actual television over that effervescent piano jam, must mark a goal for almost every iOS developer. The only further step that exists would be to have your app showcased on stage at a launch event!
The apps in the ads are often chosen for their beautifully interfaces and intriguing concepts, you don’t see third-party Twitter clients. Today I’ll take a quick look at some of the more recent apps that have featured and what makes them special – it’s going to be tempting!
You know that you’re the sort of person that reads (and writes for) the AppStorm when you find yourself getting excited about a calendar, of all things. This is the type of thing that people buy every year because they have to, a product that bookstores line their checkout aisles with.
Thanks to everyone who took part in the giveaway this week, and special thanks to the kind people at Fomola! I’m excited to let you know that the winners have now been chosen. Congratulations are in order to:
