Sprak

Sprak is on it's way to the app-store, you might remember it from this post http://www.larsby.com/johan/?p=817 but it now resides over at http://www.tinkerteam.se/?page_id=87

I'm trying to get a hold of the guy's that gave insightful comments over at the first post so I can send them promo-codes to the finished thing.

And in other new's I'm helping Rosa Menkman with an swutit's like application, but different. To be shown in museums and on conjunction with her papers.

And a few other things you might like! soon to be revealed!

“Boutique” or “Circuitbent” instruments on i-Phone/Pad

So I have made a little drone/noise app for my own amusement, and it turned out very good. Now I'm thinking of letting it out into the wild on the appstore.

Two things I'm uncertain about thou.

Should it have a .99 or 99 dollar price-tag? If it was circuitbent or made from scratch it would take me the same amount of time (except for the oscillator in this thing, I hardly think it's makable analogwise) putting it together. I could make the next one a little faster, but not by the factor it takes to let someone download it of the app store. Another factor for the price is the availability, is there a market great enough for a .99 noise-drone app? Will it increase the value for the buyer if s/he pay's more? What's your take on this?

Second thing I'm thinking about is the look, right now it uses standard widgets and no special graphics at all. Where it boutique or circuit-bent it would have a distinct look of it being either hand-made or hand-altered. So should one try and make something more nifty?

This is how it looks today, soon there will be audio examples as well!
