One thing I’d never even considered, until I spotted a tweet from John Paczkowski was alternative content on Apple Music from the main stream music stuff. 

Apple Music holds a plethora of sound effects, ranging from animated noises to zoo animals.. Digging through the archive, I even stumbled across a collection of Nokia monotone ringtones.. 

A quick search of the Apple Music library for simply “sound effects” will bring back a vast collection of ‘albums’ full of effects. What’s more, if you’re looking for something specific typing in the search term also does a pretty good job of returning just what you’re looking for. 

Of course, to take full advantage of the sound effects a subscription to Apple Music is ideally required. 



TechnoBuffalo have put together this short and snappy round up of what you can expect to see at this years Consumer Electronics show. 



If ever there was a great time to own an Apple Watch, you can now use the Donino’s app on your watch to order Pizza in just two taps!

The Apple watch app uses the pairing to your iPhone, stored card details and previous order information to make ordering pizza so (dangerously?) easy. Just one tap and your order is “in the bag”. 

Once ordered you can also track the status of your order all the way from the oven to the door with the same app. 

   



Boffins over at PVD+ in Taiwan have created a new app for the Apple Watch which allows complete control over the flight of a drone. Seen below in the video, the pilot, dubbed to be “using the force” uses his Jedi powers (and his Apple Watch app) to pilot the drone! 



A little known trick has been tweeted about by an iOS Developer

Basically by repeatedly tapping one of the software buttons in one of Apples stock apps iOS will clear down its app cache. Which is believed to improve overall performance of iOS devices. 

To perform this “trick” launch the App Store, and tap on the featured star button 10 times in quick succession. If you’ve successfully activated the clear down, the AppStore screen will appear to reload, thus indicating the cache has been cleared. 

This is also said to resolve issues with app downloads stuck in a limbo state.
