As well as my work as Software Architect for mobile application developers SurfKitchen
, I have so far released three iPhone/iPod Touch apps, the Clave
, and 8Strummer
in association with guitarist Simon Nelson, as well as an Android version of the Clave
You can read details of these, and related news, in the posts below…
Guitarist and tutor Simon Nelson and I are proud to announce that the first Android version of our rhythm guitar trainer 8Strummer
is now available on the Android Market. Since the iOS version was released in June this year, we have had an overwhelming number of requests for an Android version.
You may find the app here on the Market website. If you are viewing this on an Android phone, you may also click here to go directly to 8Strummer in the Market app.
Don’t forget to like the Facebook page as well!
AutoArp has now been updated to version 1.3. The major change is that it is now free for new users – with a limited set of chords. New users can unlock the ability to edit their own songs and chord lists, via a simple In-App Purchase.
Existing users will still be able to access full functionality as before.
In addition, features such as alternative bass notes and an echo effect have been added, as well as lower playback latency (on latest generation devices).
Try it now and play away!
In association with guitarist Simon Nelson
, a new guitar rhythm trainer app, 8Strummer
, has been launched on the iPhone App Store.
Based on the principle of having many configurations of strum and rest strokes in an eighth-note pattern, 8Strummer allows a guitarist to practice rhythm patterns alongside a guide track of variable tempo. It also functions as a great songwriting tool, since random patterns can be generated. Your favourite patterns can be stored to a list of favourites.

(Non-iPhone users fear not: an Android version will follow in due course!)
The latest version of my app AutoArp
for iOS was released today on the iTunes App Store. This version includes the following improvements, plus a funky new retro interface for the synth controls:
- tremolo effect with LFO frequency and depth
- ability to save sets of chords as ‘songs’, allowing you to switch between songs quickly
- ‘about’ page including sharing facility
- new icon!
I’m proud to announce that the Android version of my app the Clave
is now available in the Android Market. It is free, and boasts the same features as the first iPhone version:
- Four pattern types: Son, Rumba, Afro and Bossa
- Tempo selectable between 40 and 240 bpm (cut time)
- Visual display of selected rhythm
- Tempo accurate to within 22 microseconds
More features will be added soon…
