I stumbled upon a fantastic WordPress plugin last week while browsing some of my favorite blogs on my iPhone – WPTouch. I browsed over to D’Arcy Norman’s blog with the iPhone and found that it was magnificently formatted for easy reading on my device. The plugin does a great job of giving you everything you need for your blogging pleasure while leaving the rest out – a feature I greatly appreciate as Prince George currently offers an Edge cell network only. At present I have only have the vanilla installation activated, but plan to experiment with some customizations.
Next event – the Prince George Symphony Orchestra performing Peter and Wolf during the Exploration Place Family Day. For this event I thought I would try the app – Record. Record is a fairly straightforward recording application but also gathers locative date using the iPhone integrated GPS. The result is an MP3 recording with time/date/location stamp. Recordings can be sorted within the app by a ‘Smart Location’ folder feature. This feature allows you to sort recordings based on your location to the original recording source location. For example, I can set a folder to only show recordings that were made within 20 miles of me. Not sure how this would be useful – but it sure is cool. The downside: you need to use a application called Sink to export the audio from the device – a process that appears to strip the locative metadata.
Here is a short clip I recorded during the performance of Peter and the Wolf.
