PhoneTag App is Like a Digital Walkie-Talkie

PhoneTag

Sometimes, text messages aren’t enough. Whether it’s a declaration of love or a description of whatever it is you want your significant other to pick up, PhoneTag will be able to help you out. It’s an app that sort of works like a digital walkie-talkie: it lets you take a photo and record a voice message to send along with it.

It’s a notch behind video and one step ahead mere audio messages. I’m sure there’s a niche out there for users who prefer this over just video or audio. The app is free to download from the iTunes App Store.

Stream The Chili Peppers’ New Album For Free On iTunes

By David Ponce

This is a first for Apple: you can now stream the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ upcoming album,I’m With You, for free, right now, on the iTunes Music Store. I’m listening to it as I type. While there isn’t a whole lot of information to go by on why Apple is doing this (is there ever?), it could be a sign of things to come. The pressure is mounting on the boys in Cupertino to offer a service similar to Spotify, Rdio or Pandora, where users pay a flat monthly fee and stream as much music as they want. Certainly with the announcement of iCloud a while back one can envision a strategy that includes such a service.

In any case, the album is pretty good. It’s a 1h track, meaning you can’t skip around to specific songs, but whatever. Oh, and this isn’t for the iPhone.
