Two Shortcuts for App Exposé

If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.

iCarols from the iBand

Send Article to a Friend

Sure, we all know you can play music on an iPhone or iPad, but this YouTube video from the iBand, a group at the North Point Community Church outside of Atlanta, takes iOS device music to a whole new level, with an 8-member band playing a medley of Christmas carols entirely on iPads and iPhones. Thanks to reader Charles Reeves for the pointer!

Aside from the enjoyment of watching a bunch of guys in silly hats playing synthesized Christmas music on iPads, all I could think was that they really needed Hand-e-holders so they could rock around a bit more while playing without worrying about dropping their iPads (see “Palm Your iPad with a Hand-e-holder,” 29 October 2010).

I love the bit at the end when the singer sings right into an iPhone.

Very well done. We enjoyed the fact that it was good music and great use of technology.
May it sell some more iPads!
Nice novelty, interesting use of technology, but good music? Singing Feliz Navidad through an auto-tuned iPhone with notes that don't quite correspond to those composed for the song isn't exactly good music. Clever, entertaining, curious, but I don't think the term good music belongs in the mix. Musical sideshow maybe.. :)
