  • Slightly OT: Must-have iPad apps

    Picking up a 1st gen iPad soon - what sort of apps are indispensable for the working musician?

    My wife and I are in a cover band, and we'd like an app that displays lyrics, maybe scrolls through them at a slow pace or something.

    Also, music creation apps would be great, even apps that have nothing to do with music. I'm sure Angry Birds will be the first download.

    Ready....... Go!

    If by "working musician" you mean you're on the road a lot, Netflix and if you have HBO, HBO GO! apps are a must...especially for those cheap hotels that don't have cable.

      These ipad apps


      I want to love the Reactable app, but something about it just feels to cumbersome... I guess I'm just not getting a hang of the interface.

            Don't forget Stobe tuner Pro or the Peterson strobe App. ****************'s tight, I don't even bring a tuner to acoustic gigs, just my phone.

              You may want to consider a newer iPad. Older 1 may not run some of these apps smoothly/reliably.

                      Flipboard, Dropbox, Skype, BBC News, AmpliTube, Minisynth Pro and Garageband are all tops in my book.
