This has a number of effects. Firstly, the user community tend to […]

At least once a year, I apologise for a lack of activity and here’s the first such apology for 2013! Last year I took on a new day job and things have ramped up of late, the upshot of which has seen me flying here, there and everywhere. America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. […]

From the moment I got my iPad earlier this year, one of the first things I said would be awesome to have on it was a Tenori-On app. In fact, I was staggered that it hadn’t already been done, especially as there were other Tenori-On-esque apps available, such as Beatwave.
