iPhone apps: Soundbite, Pocket Workout, Bank of Me

NoiseLevel, Converter

  • Soundbite ($2) allows users to record snippets of sound for playback. Sounds can be labeled with a name, plus images taken from an iPhone's camera or Photo Library. Soundbite also allows users to loop sounds for longer playback, and layer sounds to create a mash-up effect.

  • Pocket Workout ($3) lets users create customized exercise routines based on test results, a weekly schedule and improvement goals. The software features 19 predefined exercises, designed to help users lose weight, increase dexterity, tone muscles or build strength.

  • Bank of Me ($3) tracks debts owed to other people. IOUs are sorted by who they are owed to; users can additionally enter different types of loans, allowing a user to not only keep track of money owed, but also favors, food and other exchanges. The app further sends out e-mail reminders to people who are in debt to the user, with a link to add the transaction to the application on separate handhelds.

  • NoiseLevel ($1) is a tool used to measure the sound level in an area. The app uses the iPhone's built-in microphone to pick up sounds, then displays volume in decibels at the bottom of the screen. Added to this is a balloon, which grows in size as sound level increases. The balloon explodes if decibels reach a certain level, or if a sharp sound is made, such as a handclap.

  • Converter ($1) can be used to convert common units from one form of measurement to another. The program handles 76 different measurement units, organized into eight common categories, including length, weight, temperature, speed, data, volume, area and time.

      Bank of Me

      I really like the sound of Bank of Me. Does iTunes take IOU's as payment? Seriously, who needs an application to keep track of things like this???
