Typora — a minimal markdown reading & writing app
Somewhat annoying website. But: really impressive new Markdown app - its view/hide source mode is in some ways nicer than Macdown/Mou, and it has detailed support of the Markdown 'spec'. Going to keep trying this whilst it's in beta.

Steve Reich’s Clapping Music » Improve your rhythm by learning how to perform Steve Reich’s Clapping Music.
"Steve Reich’s Clapping Music is a free game that improves your rhythm by challenging you to play Steve Reich’s ground-breaking work – a piece of music performed entirely by clapping. Tap in time with the constantly shifting pattern, and progress through all of the variations. If you slip up or your accuracy falls too low, it’s game over." Must try this.

So far: much happier with this than I ever was with Sparrow; the shortcuts are the ones I need, and it handles plaintext. So going to try living with it for a bit.

Xtreme Mapping
"Xtreme Mapping 1.4 is an advanced editor of MIDI controller mappings for Native Instruments' Traktor DJ software." I'm always amazed how bad Traktor's mapping editor is, given how much you can do; this looks like a powerful way to build more complex mappings.

Flexibits | Fantastical | Meet your new assistant.
This is working well for me: rapid calendar input, not too big on the menu bar, and yet nice support for multiple calendars and the like. Pretty much meets my calendar-input requirements, and leaves iCal to do the heavy lifting.

Eye blog » The app of A Humument. ‘The iPad is one of the oldest things in the world … a pad or a slate.’
"It’s different things at different times, a serious research tool, or a communication device, but it’s a toy, I can play with it and find things I didn’t know existed." Tom Phillips has made a version of A Humument for the iPad, and I am very excited about this new.

Preview: Instapaper on iPad - Instapaper Blog
"No huge surprises, except maybe that I changed to dark toolbars. No multi-column reading, no fake book-page animations, and no giant newspaper graphics." Great explanation of Instapaper on the iPad from Marco. And: I'm sure it'll be great; in the past two months, I've become a total Instapaper convert.

trails - Intuitive GPS tracking on the iPhone
"Trails is the first GPS iPhone app that allows you to record, import and export tracks onto your iPhone." Also, it's not *too* battery intensive, has a really well thought-out UI, and wasn't too expensive. Very nice.

Newtoy | Kicking off a revolution in gaming with your friends on the iPhone and iPod Touch
Words With Friends: it's like Scrabulous, but on your iPhone, with push notification. There is little more that needs to be said, other than that it's a very good implementation with some nice UI detail.

Convertbot - Tapbots
This is exactly the kind of thing I was talking about around a year ago - the value of bespoke, beautiful UI to interact with mundane code; people aren't just paying for software here, they're paying for interaction design.
