Tap To The Beat!

Tap To The Beat! is a dead simple app. Simply tap in the “tap area” to a heartbeat, or music, or choreography and the app will display the bpm (beats per minute). You can then save and name the save so you view previous bpm calculations. The app also saves the min and max beats during the session. There is also an option to change the number of samples taken before the bpm is calculated. This typically helps with proper bpm calculation since human taps are usually different no matter how hard we try to tap the the beat.

Typical uses:
– determine your own heart beat by taping to your pulse
– determine other peoples heart beat (like your children or baby)
– use with a fetal doppler to determine the heartbeat of your developing baby
– use this at a club or concert to help you determine the artists bpm (helpful for dj’s and artists
– use while watching choreography to help determine the dances bpm (useful for cheerleaders and dancers)

There is a free ad based version and a paid version that has the ads removed. Enjoy Tap To The Beat!

App Trigger

App Trigger is a dead simple app inspired by Mode Switcher. App Trigger was made for one reason, to automatically launch your music app when you plug in headphones or connect with a bluetooth audio device.

There is not difficult setup. Simply choose the music app that you want to be triggered and let the app do the rest.

This app was created because Mode Switcher quit working with my bluetooth device. Mode Switcher also was changing my profile and things when all I wanted it to do was launch a single app. App Trigger makes a nice alternative for the simple user out there.

This app is mainly used to launch “Internet Radio” or “Pandora” both found in the product catalog, becuase these apps begin playing your last song on open. Therefore, you can start your car up and music will automatically begin playng without you taking your phone out of your pocket.

    The main purpose of this app is to allow users the ability to quickly find a suitable internet radio station for their enjoyment. The internet is constantly being filled with hundreds of new stations all the time so finding something decent to listen to can be a challenge. Internet radio uses icecast.org and SHOUTcast™ services to quickly search and filter through the thousands of stations on the web. Internet Radio also uses some neat custom preferences that allow the user to tailor their search to their needs.

    The user can search on an artists name, album, song, genre, or just about anything to help find what they need. The search looks through currently playing as well as station names and tags. This should allow you to narrow in on exactly what you are looking for. And if you just cant decide what you want, hit the SHOUTcast™ top stations button to see what other people enjoy the most.

    This app includes a custom player that displays station name, song name, and bitrate and current listener count. This player also includes a dashboard to keep you up to date on currently playing song name when you navigate over to another app. If you need a little extra quality and buffering ability then you can push the station to the native Palm streaming app with click of a button. Once you have determined which player you like, feel free to set that as your default in the preferences.

    By now you should have found a great station to listen to. If so add it to your ‘Favorites’ list. if you forget to, don’t worry, it should show up in your recently played list. If you found that one and only amazing station, go ahead and turn on the ‘Play last song on start up’ feature found in the preferences.

    Lets say you are somewhere out and about that has terrible cellphone reception. That is okay, just turn on the 2G filter in the preferences menu to help you find a lower quality station to play.

    If you have any issues such as problems or if you have any requests, please post them here in the forums or as a comment below. Please don’t post your issues in the app review. Most problems can easily be fixed once we have identified them. See below for a list of Q/A.

    ####### Help Section and FAQs #############

    Q) I can’t seem to get past the “Buffering” message. What can I do?

    A) There are a few things you can try so I will list them below:

  • Make sure you have a reliable data connection whether its 2G, 4G, or wifi.
  • Make sure the streams bitrate is lower than your data connections maximum download speed.
  • Double check that it is a working station by attempting to play it on your computer
  • Push it to Palm’s streaming player to see if it can handle the stream
  • Q) My search results are coming up empty while searching for icecast stations?

    A) icecast currently has much fewer stations than SHOUTcastâ„¢. Try being more general with your search. If all else fails type in a genre that you are interested in like “Top40” or “80s”.

    Q) Sometimes when I push the “Push to Palm Player” button the Palm Player says there was an error playing back the file. What can I do?

    A) This is a very interesting error and it seems to happen when you try and switch screens to fast. I have programed a slight delay that seems to work 99% of the time but I have found that if it is not working simply wait a brief moment and then press the “Push to Palm Player” button. Also some stations are on overloaded or slow servers so getting the stream from them can take longer than the typical station. It is important to note that if you switch your default player to the Palm Player then this is not an issue anymore.

    Q) Some streams do not display the current song or bitrate. What can I do?

    A) Some steams literally do not offer up their current song and bitrate so I cannot display it to you. Other times (escpecially with icecast streams) the stream does not meet certain standards so the information cannot be pulled out in the standard way. Please use the forums to note stations that have problems. Sometimes a workaround can be developed and other times they can’t.

    Q) Occasionally when I perform an icecast search I get back a bunch of crazy code, what happened?

    A) Some stations that use icecast are highly standardized. When my standard filtering alogorithm is performed on nonstandard stations it can return crazy results. Please use the forums to note stations that have problems. Sometimes a workaround can be developed and other times they can’t.

    Q) There are some features that I would like to see in the app. What is the best way to relay these to you?

    A) Using the forums on this site is the best way. You can leave a comment on this page but they can be easily overlooked.
