  28. 28. Listening to ClareFM.ie this morning.<br />Heard a great tune…..interrupted by the Galway Races  Used Tunepal……..it’s called The Parting………got it from The Session.org. So much fun……….. listening and learning Irish Trad.<br />Thank you so much for the good you have done and are doing!<br />It is ironic, but one of my mates has proudly proclaimed she has never had a cell phone, computer, nor opened an email account. She is utterly fascinated with Tunepal<br />“I’m sure you’re getting emails every day saying how much folks love your tunepal site and iphone app. I have the app and LOVVVVVVVVVE it! I use it every day. Awesome awesomeawesome!<br />Getting a lot of use out of this app now. Everybody I have told so far is very impressed.”<br />It’s pure magic. Thanks a million for having made this diamond and share it with everyone. If there was a God, I’m quite sure that he would have you blessed !<br />I just wanted to thank you for the great idea and the great job you’ve done with Tunepal. It’s an excellent and very useful tool. Just what I whished for quite often.<br />I am really impressed with the app.  It was 100% correct in identifying tunes when I played them on flute or whistle.  Having worked in a previous life in ultrasonic testing of materials, I can appreciate some of the problems involved.<br />
  29. 29. But!<br />You can’t please everyone...<br />
  30. 30. The future!<br />Session radar<br />More tunes from different genres<br />FionnSessiúnPoca?<br />
  31. 31. Conclusions<br />Mobile device is the right platform for this technology<br />Always on internet, <br />CPU technology<br />GPS<br />Screen size<br />Having a significant impact on how musicians learn tunes and acquire repertoire<br />Making Apps is great fun, lots of nice things will happen to you<br />Lots of commercial opportunities<br />
