Smart: AmpliTube for iPad

AmpliTube

The ability to loop song sections in AmpliTube is a great riff-learning aid

They say: "With AmpliTube for iPad, you’ll have an entire guitar/bass rig at your fingertips, comprised of 4 simultaneous stompbox effects, an amp-head plus cabinet and a microphone."

The Reg says: When I reviewed AmpliTubefor the iPhone, in concert with IK Multimedia's iRig guitar and bass connection hardware, I was duly impressed at the amount of sonic control its collection of digital effects, amps, and cabinets could provide.

Now the same app has migrated over to the iPad, with the addition of interface elements that take advantage of the increased display real estate.

In addition, that extra display size makes using AmpliTube onstage on in-studio much easier — especially if your iPad is ensconced in IK's iKlip microphone stand–mounted iPad holder.

Stupid: iPleasure

iPleasure

"Minimalist" doesn't begin to describe iPleasure's capabilities. Neither does "stupid"

They say: "Depending on user's finger motions the iPleasure's 'mouth' will speak, offering soft and erotic speech that are not only gratifying but entertaining as well."

The Reg says: I'm sometimes at a loss as to where somone came up with the inspiration for a particularly stupid app. iPleasure is one of those apps.

This piece of rousing eroticism displays a pair of lips. Choose one of eight lipstick colors, and smear the lips with your finger, imparting that color.

The lips distort as your finger moves across them. You can also move them a little by pulling the mouth open. Occasional sighing (I think) and giggling (possibly) also emanate from the app.

That's all folks. You can go home now. Nothing more to see here.
