First, I will never do this again... It's too much horrible to have to decide... I received a lot of links... To websites, Youtube videos,... Funny answers... But I received only 1 link from one of you who was performing live. So, I have decided to give Cyclop for iPad to this reader... So the winner is: Marcus!
Since two days it was impossible for me to post The Apps on sell, updated or new... I want to apology for this So here are the list of these Apps but 2 days ago. I had to remove from this list a few Apps...
Also, I will send the redeem codes to the Contest winners later today. (There are still a few Apps to win...) I will publish the rewind of this month and this year later today too... I will post the What's was hot today but 1 day ago later today as well as the What's hot today of today, later today... Hope you follow me...
Do you know why I am making this Website? Because, I am a passionate.... In the past, I was a Mac addict. Now I am an iPad addict.
I also need to share, need to work and need to believe that I can change a little bit this world. That 's why I decided to be a musician... To change this world.
Do you know how much money I earned with Apps4idevices? Nothing... I bought around 600 euro of Apps every months in the past... I had to pay 3 people too. For the Peace Project, I received a lot of hardwares or I had to buy a lot of hardwares too... Everytime, all this material was offered in a special Sunday Contest. I also translated for Free a lot of Apps to French and continue to offer this serviceto developers who need it.
Do you know how many hours per day I need to work to make this Website? 20 hours! As you know or not, I am an Asperger... I need to work every second of my life... And more things are repetitives more happy I am...
It's not cool to be an Asperger because our brain never stop to work.. Notes everything... Remember everything.... Because of this, most of the Asperger have to live alone... Because, everybody lies... And for us it's a big problem... Our brain bug... For this reason I never delete something on this website. Same for Apps4idevices in the past. I had correction... And post my apologies...
Why I talking about this... Because there is also one thing that decide me to create Apps4idevices It's the possibility to join the developers, to talk with them, the community... I can understand that very big companies like Roland or Yamaha never answered to my emails... It's no more human companies... Despite this I received an answer and thanks for my work from very famous ones... Even from BMW! From very very famous bands too... And this at the very start of Apps4idevices at a moment where the visitors per day was around 60!
I can understand that some developers didn't want to offer a redeem codes.. No problem. But at least when I review their App and after that I have sent to them the link of their review, a little thanks is normal... It's respect! I sent a few emails to Virsyn and other Killer developers that never answeed to me... But after a review, 90% of them send me their thanks... It's normal! This doesn't mean that they have to offer me a redeem code after.. Worst because of this after, I no more ask them a code for their new release so scare that they could thing wrong about me...
At the begining of Apps4idevices rebirth I reviewed a Free App from Audio Damage.. Iafter the review I sent an email to the developer... Nothing... I didn't know this company... In the past I was working with Protools only and never use a Plugins from them I continue to send an email to the developer for each new release. Nothing... One day, a little bit borring, I send an email to the developer to tell to him all the good that I was thinking about this attitude. And if he was sure to understand this community. I received an answer... You can see it below.. The only problem of this answer is the lies inside....
When I send an email to the developer, I always paste this from my awesome keyboard... (SwiftKey)
Hi, I am Ed from Apps4idevices I just relaunched the website 4 month ago and I would be very happy to make a review of your App: If you are interested and if it's possible for you, could you send me a redeem code. Note: To thanks the developers who send me a redeem code, the Logo of their App is added to the Banner of the "What's hot today?" news, everyday, until their Apps reviews will be posted! Also, we organise a contest every Sunday. If you like, you can send us some redeem codes (at least one) for our readers. You will have 2 weeks of ad for free in our website. My best Ed
Note for developers: http://a4irebith.weebly.com/developers.html
I you are a developer, I think that you already received this message. As you can see there is a link You can Tap on it... I publish the Analytics every month and talk true... (If I forgot like I did last month, it's not at my advantage... Because each month the traffic grow...
So what this developer wrote on his email is a big lie! Because of this I will nrver review an App from this developer on this website... I am sorry but this world needs some rules! And Music is Art before all! Not a buissness! I am free. I totally don't mind about the "consequence" of this post.... Sure that I will lose some readers. Scared some developers... I will lose 100 humans and win 1 humans... But 1 awesome human! And I am Free! I don't make this for money! Like I never make music for money!
Melody Composer Squared is a very little sequencer. The UI is devided in two. On the top a Square. Euh, no, 36 squares. Each square is a note and each division of this square is a step. Below, a music sheet. You set the grid by selecting a note rhythmic. (4 steps to 64 steps) You can add a note by a Tap on a square or on the music sheet. You can edit 4 Patterns (1 bar) each, change the Tonality, the Tempo and the instrument playing. You can save your melody and send it via email as a MIDI file. Very simple but a good idea and very well done. A Super original litle App!
I received 2 friendly messages asking me 2 different things... First: how old I was, because I am always saying,that I am a very old man. I am 593 years old.. I am born in 1967 and here where I live, we are in 2560
The second question was about the butterfly at the end of the videos... Why there is always a butterfly? In many civilizations / beliefs, the butterfly is the symbol of soul and spirit freed from its carnal envelope. The symbol also of the life after death. A4i rebirth...
Have a nice day or night depending of where you are in the Galaxy! Cheers Ed Kap!

Concept: Monophonic synthesizer First impressions: top! I like it! I think that Cyclop will stay in my iPad... I think that I will be able to create awesome Bass line or synth ambience totally "stick" to my Drum pattern.... Sound quality: Excellent! Audio Processing: Seems to be really awesome! Features: Euh.... A lot... Better that you check the App Store description below.... (But I already love the module in the center of the screen with seems to be link to all parameters... The seuencer with the 2 timelines for the Fx section.... Really awesome!) UI: Cyclope seems to be "easy" to understand, and I love to have a colour code in an App and in everything... (Asperger syndrone...). Sometimes I have a little problem with Sugar Bytes Apps, because of the small UI (even if they offer everytime the possibility to zoom in a module with a double Tap). But not this time... The UI is big enough, so it's cool for old hypermetrop man. The preset library UI is awesome...
Note: Because I don't know the App when I am making the video, it's possible that I am saying wrong things... Big mistake... (I men, much more than usual...) So if you have this App, if you know this App, feel Free to leave a comment in the comment section below....
App Store description: Cyclop now available on the iPad – ready to unleash monstrous bass sounds to the mobile world.
Cyclop is a monophonic synthesizer. It does one thing very well: delivering cutting-edge digital madness at the low end of the frequency spectrum.
Cyclop is the master of subs, beautifully controlling even the lowest notes, always sounding stomach-rumblingly thick. It uses mid/side processing to introduce stereo imaging between 250Hz and 4kHz. This ensures wide, interesting sounds that retain their punch and bass. There are no phasing issues, which means Cyclop cuts through the mix very nicely.
Enjoy an incredible depth of sound design possibilities, great real-time control with the Wobble Knob and FX knob. Integrated effects sequencer, vast modulation system and the preset browser will take your inspiration to new levels.
The interface has been improved for touch performance and the overall cpu usage has been reduced.
- Monophonic Bass Synthesizer - 6x2 Synthesiser Engines, 10x2 Filter Engines - Analog Sync, FM, Sample Transformer, Spectromat, Saw Regiment, Phase Stressor - Vowel Filter Mode - Free Signal Flow for 2 Oscillators, Filters and Distortions. - Incredibly versatile modulation system - Multi FX Knob/Sequencer - powerful Preset Browser with tagging and rating - Full MIDI Support (Virtual, Network, External) - Music Library Access (Transformer Oscillator) - iTunes File Sharing - Inter-App Audio - Audiobus - Ableton Link
DJ Mag: “It is decidedly digital-sounding, but not in a bad way, and as the growing list of fans proves, it can be turned to good use in just about any electronic genre, past, present and (probably) future.” Rating: 9.5/10
Producer Spot: “Very good for his complexity, very versatile and easy to use if you need sub bass sound for your productions. Sugar Bytes offers High quality and good prices with all their products.” Rating: 9.5/10
Computer Music: “Anyone will find it powerful and unique-sounding, adding spice to existing tracks and inspiring new ones.” Rating: 4.5/5.0

Nothing will deleted or removed from this blog. For my mistakes or angers, apologies and corrections will be added if needed.
You can see everyday on a banner in the What's hot today post the Apps offered by a developer...
If you participate to the Sunday Contest, you will have to trust in me... But, if you like you can asked me the email list of the readers who participate to a Contest included Time and Date. I will send it to you...
My rating... The first criterion is the App Store description. The last one is my taste and this is totally subjective... Each post come with a tutorial showing you all the knobs, menu, faders,.... Everything that you will be able to find in an App... I hope that this will help to make your own rating.
If I really don't like an App, don't understand it or found too many bugs, I send an email to the developer.... I asked him if the App will be update shortly, I also offer my services as Beta Tester.... Most of the time, I will wait for a future update... Developers are humans too!...
All comments will be publish here. For insults, offenses or very bad mood, the only restriction is that you have to sign with your real name...
I don't know... Peraphs that I will add something later,
