CarTunes Music Player By Ryan Oksenhorn iPhone Review


I had to do a review on CarTunes Music Player because it’s going to be on my iPhone until it dies. Forget your Music iPhone app and swipe, flick, and pinch to your iPod songs. The interface is beautiful, and the multiple screen touches do what they are supposed to. Are you ready for your instructions, don’t zone out on me just yet?

While listening to a song, slide up with one finger to see your music category lists, or tap to pause and play. Flick left or right to go to the next or previous song, and hold your swipe to fast forward or rewind. You can pinch to see the album, pinch again to see the artist, and even slide down to tweet. I saved the best feature for last, since many of us have broken volume controls, or a who the heck made this case, and where do my fingers fit! Simply hold and slide up or down with one finger to colorfully increase or decrease the volume.

It’s always funny to me when an app is better than the app that comes with your iPhone. I guess we wouldn’t have apps like CarTunes Music Player otherwise, so good news for us. CarTunes gets a Summer Olympics Gold Medal in my book, well except without the sweat. It could be a little higher than you normally pay for an app like this depending if it’s on sale or not, but either way, it’s a good one!

We would love to hear if you downloaded the app and what you thought of it, leave us a comment below!





3D Audio iPhone Review

If this is your first time hearing about 3D Audio, you are going to love he concept. Think of a 3D movie, but the real feel of sound instead. I haven’t found an amazing app in this category yet, so I decided to include two of the better 3D Audio apps since most of them have some of the same audio clips.

I’d probably make sure someone else is in the room and the lights are on before you try World of 3D Sounds and Music 3D as you could go insane! The process of your 3D Audio experience begins by putting your headphones on, closing your eyes, and listen to different voices and sounds as if they were right next to you. There are a few different clips to listen to in the audio apps I’ve linked below, and when I tell you at some points I had to take my (bottom of the line apple) headphones off because it was so realistic, i’m not lying!

What made me review this genre was the lightbulb in my head that said, “what if I could listen to a TV show or movie with these sounds?” What if instead of staring at a TV screen, I laid back on the couch relaxing with my eyes closed listening to George run by screaming, “I was in the pool!”? Until 3D Audio becomes more popular, you and I are left with very few decent short clips to enjoy. Throughout my list of apps below, my favorites are haircut, fly, racing, and blowdryer. While listening to haircut, you’ll feel like you’re sitting in a barber chair with the scissors slicing by your ears. Fly is a short clip with an annoying fly buzzing around your head. Racing you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of a racetrack with cars whizzing by. Finally the blowdryer is pretty neat as well, and I’m not embarrassed to say I may have felt a breeze, at least I think I did. I’m sorry I can’t offer you a really good 3D audio apps, but I’m sure you’ll find some clips quite entertaining.
