So EU fined Google 5 Billions for bundling their apps on Android devices... Which will force Google to not continue the practice and leads to a loss of ad revenue and influence.
Google have mentioned that they will maybe charge developers to pay to use Android O.S which of course is a big threat as many developers are attracted to use Android for being open source in difference to Apple.
Personally do not think that this will happen as Google could loose too much starting to charge for usage of Android, revenue or not.
My real reason for posting is not so much for this news but one of the responses by the European Google CEO Sundar Pichai wrote. Do agree with a lot of it.
Read it here:
TuxGuitar have been a free alternative to Guitar Pro for a long time. To be honest thought that TuxGuitar had stopped being developed since some time. Happily enough this is not true and it seems like it is now actively being developed and there is also a version for Android.
Which is good as there is not many guitar note/tablature writing apps.
Of course it aso reads notes/tablature.
The PC/Linux/Mac version is for free and it is supposed to work as a VST as well (Have not tried this). The Android version is for free with ads and have paid ad free version for two and a half monies.
Will give it a swirl these days and hope that it holds up to my expectations!
TuxGuitar is an Open Source multitrack tablature editor and player.

The same developer is also behind a 8-bit game for learning music theory with listening excercises. So big props for thinking outside the box and am curious what will pop out later from his mind...
Music Scale Sudoku is the first app ever to combine Sudoku and Music Scale Theory. Mastering scales is a fundamental skill in the study of music. A solid understanding of scales makes the study of melody, chords, and harmony easier. It also helps improve your ability to remember and compose music.
Combining Sudoku and music scales is the perfect way to practice your ability to spell scales. The solution method doubles as an exercise in spelling scales.
Music Scale Sudoku features the 11 most common major scales: C, F, G, Bb, D, Eb, A, Ab, E, Db, and B.
There are 6 puzzles for each scale plus a random mode that creates over 600 variations of the existing puzzles.
Each puzzle has been verified to contain no advanced Sudoku techniques. The goal of this app is to teach you scales over advanced Sudoku techniques.
The game also features a tutorial on how to spell major scales.
Buttons double as a keyboard so that you can play along to the background music!

Great idea to combine 8 bit gameplay with learning musical theory in my opinion.

Developers Note: My goal with this game is to introduce fundamental music concepts that tend to get ignored because they aren’t as “fun” as playing your instrument. I also want to make music theory more approachable and show that it’s a tool to enhance music, not to label things as right or wrong. No app can be fully comprehensive on the subject and I encourage the user to seek as many sources of musical information as possible.
Interesting album made using Nanoloop and here is what the artist says on his Bandcamp site:
Gesceap uses Nanoloop on iOS and Android devices to create a mix of electronic music styles focusing on deep bass and eclectic beats. Rhythmatic elements come from ambient noises, voices and well-known breaks while all melodic portions are generated by the app's soft synths.
Tunes are well developed for live mixing which can be seen on YouTube, while the source .nan files can be downloaded and dissected from GitHub.
released May 4, 2018
This app was pretty nice some years ago specially as there was not too many good apps competing but there was no saving so it was a little bit sad as personally did not feel much interest in spending time to have the work lost when closing the app...
Well I missed that there is now a Pro version that came out some months ago. with saving.
So it is nice for anyone that likes a nice beat box that is simple to work with and it does only cost two monies!
The free version is also still available to test...
