No fanfare, no announcement on Twitter of Facebook, which is most unusual as […]

Early impressions are that it is great fun, very intuitive and contains more patches than I’d expected. It’s being billed very much as a “snack” type app, more […]

This week, v1.1 of the iOS app was released and with it, it brought sampling.
