Congratulations Matt :D They really are great :) And that case looks very handy - still don't like the idea of chucking it in a puddle tho ;)

Shazam is a 8-) app for identifying music and i use flixster a lot for film times. But lots of apps I use for a bit then take off the phone. I guess any time you find yourself thinking 'I wish I could just....' check the app store :)

Hi Benny

:shock: Thats an interesting job.
You should get an iphone and contact lifeproof and tell them you want to put their case to a REAL test :D

Hi Ben

Yes, very handy.
Im excited about the different music production software available to use on the move.
I downloaded Nano Studio today, so will have a go and see how i get on.

Shazam sounds good. I presume its similar to Soundhound :?:

Cheers
Matt

Wasn't aware of soundhound but having just had a look it, yes the same idea except looking at the reviews soundhound is probably better ;) 8-) Will prob download and have a play.

Keep us updated on music production apps, sounds interesting :)

Hi Ben

Let me know how Soundhound goes for you. I had a laugh trying to sing into the phone :lol:

There seems to be quite a few music programmes out there. Although nano studio wasn't cheap, it looks like a proper full blown programme like you'd get on a pc.

Cheers

Hi Matt

No it can't be you because your iphone 4 would have been used as hammer to break up your SCM50 Pro monitors :lol:

My Lifeproof case for the iphone arrived the other day after pre ordering it a few months ago :D

They give very strict instructions on correct installation, and even only provide 90 days warranty unless you answer 12 questions correctly.
Reading the instructions and/or watching a set of videos gives you all the info you need to install and look after the case and answer the questions to extend the warranty to 12 months.

As part of the installation of the case, you click together the front and back covers and close the charge port without your iphone inside, and then submerge the case in a bowl of water for 1 hour.
No leaks, and your good to go. So you then dry the case and install your phone.
I haven't dared dunk the phone yet :lol: , but the case has proved valuable in work protecting the phone from dust, and on the beach with wet sand covered hands from playing fetch with the dogs and then taking pictures :D

The touch screen isn't as responsive with the case on, but i expected that and its perfectly reasonable considering the protection the case provides.

They also supply a headphone adapter that gives a water tight seal for use on the beach etc.
To use this you remove a screw in plug that seals the earphone access in normal use.

One thing to note is that the case is meant to be fitted and left on the phone generally.
They specify that the case(due to its small precision latches for closing) is only good for about 50 open/closes.
The hinged charge port is said to last 10 years if open/closed 3 times a day for charging etc.

The case cost $70 and is still only shipping to pre order customers, and due to the quite large press coverage and hype online, these cases are fetching upto $140 at the moment. I should have ordered a handful :lol:

Cheers
Matt

Very interesting, thanks for the update Matt :)

My work environment doesn't require that sort of protection (certainly not underwater ;) ) but the beach protection sounds very good. I don't think I'd want it on the rest of the time tho, so the limited number of open/closes probably means it's not for me.

I would like to see a photo of your phone in a bowl of water tho Matt ;) :twisted:
