Ah, iPhone apps — magical and functional. A marriage of fun and function indeed. Throw in some music and you got yourself a trance-like experience worthy of the replay button.
First of all, what’s an indie-rock band doing on this iPhone app review blog? Well, they made an entire music video using iPhone apps that’s why! Would you like to know what specific apps they used for their video? I’ll let you in on these apps but hey, where are my manners? :)
Friends, let me introduce you to indie rock band, Friend Slash Lover. They just happen to be the artsy group who made a music video using solely the iPhone and some apps.
Friend Slash Lover released their debut EPAs American As Ones And Zerosin 2010 and last year, the The Grey Areawhich features a cover of the 1987 hit “Dear God” by major alternative rock band XTC.
Friend Slash Lover – The Grey Area Album
I now have their album on my iPod and it makes for both active and passive listening. My personal favorite on the album is “Unaware”. Its music video has also been shot using an iPhone. See video below. I am a fan of eclectic psychedelic rock and folk, so there.
Try the band (official site –> friendslashlover.com). Try the apps (iTunes links above).

The iPhone 5 is here. Here’s the unboxing/review video we promised on this blog, RJMarmol.com iPhone App News and Reviews. Comparison video review of the iPhone 5 vs. the iPhone 4S (whether it’s worth the upgrade for a current 4S owner or if you should wait for the 5S/6) will follow in the coming days. This is an unbox/ first-look video so don’t expect technical assessments. I’ll publish a more in-depth review once I get to play with the iPhone 5 for a week or so. Come back soon for that review! :)
RJ and Io Marmol iPhone 5 Unboxing Video
“Little boy Io and Mama RJ unbox the iPhone 5, officially released in the Philippines December 14, 2012 and shipped starting January 2, 2013. We got ours the day after, January3. The iPhone 5 wasn’t announced at Apple WWDC 2012 last summer but instead made its debut last September 2012 and shipped towards the end of the same month. It didn’t (officially) reach the Philippines until 3 months after, about the same waiting time as the 4S which was released October 2011 in the US and got here December 2011. In this video, we take a first look, first impression review of the iPhone 5.”
Facebook has got its engineers tinkering on a service to compete with the wildly-popular app Snapchat, according to a report in All Things D, which cites sources close to the matter. This probably won’t come as a surprise.
