Dropin is a Responsive Web & Mobile App which allows Musicians from all over the world to collaborate in real time in the composition and production process of audio contents, doing away with the distance between the various collaborators and facilitating team-work.
Users just need to open the browser of their devices, be it Desktop or Mobile, to access an international network of artists. They can use tools like chat, messaging and access projects and shared resources to work together in real time simply by opening the browser of their device, be it desktop or mobile.
Dropin is developed entirely in HTML5 precisely to guarantee high accessibility, also using smartphones and tablets.
The tracks composed on Dropin, or those which had been previously produced, and then uploaded, can be shared for free or put on sale for users.
Thanks to a Tags and Moods system, users can classify the contents uploaded and every time a user listens to, purchases or shares content, Dropin refines their profile, identifying their most prominent interests in order to then suggest new content to listen, friendships, musical projects or events, which are strictly in line with their preferences.
There is no need to render audio, which is performed according only to the needs of users.
Dropin is in alpha release, near to the public beta , at the url: http://www.dropin.fm
I've seen the future it's in my browser
John Maynard Keynes told that "The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones."
HTML5 and CSS3 are the new idea that is coming in contrast to the weak browsers support.
However there are a lot of alternatives according to the progressive enhancement tecniques that allows developer to benefit of HTML5 and CSS3.
I've seen the future: It's in my browser!
La Pimpa becomes an interactive magazine, an HTML5 app for children on the tablet of mom and dad
After 26 years of releases on newsstands, the magazine "La Pimpa" arrives in the Apple, Android and Samsung stores, with a brand new interactive format.
The issues of the magazine are made using a brand new game engine that produces interactive content in HTML5, so cross-platform and cross-device.
