It’s been a while since my last iPhone but I have to say that the apps for musicians – and for when you’re away from home – are amazing. Therefore, I thought I would mention a few in case any of you find them useful.

Record – voice recorder  For those first ideas, this app lets you create folders and name your files within each folder. Perfect for those different versions of a song and different songs you’re working on. Plus, the playback on the iPhone is far superior to that of even a  quality digital dictaphone.

Cleartune Chromatic Tuner  Very precise and the one we use in the studio.

Ultimate Guitar Tools  Yes it has a tuner (also very good) but I use this app mainly for the Metronome and the Chords Library, the latter of which shows you not only chord variations but plays back an audio sample.

For downtime, I love using Tunein radio. 50,000 stations and counting. A friend suggested a couple of Seattle radio stations, which are pretty good.  Any Oz or Canadian or Brazilian recommendations are welcome!

Finally, I am so pleased to learn that many John Muir books are available for free on iBooks.

Guess what I’ll be doing on the next flight over to the States…
