The Awesome app blog Palm Sounds is shutting down. Damn!

It looks PalmSounds, one of our favorite iThing blogs, is closing its doors. The site has been devoted to mobile audio and music apps since it launched five and a half years ago, but in an open letter published on Monday, the site’s founder, Ashley Elsdon, announced that Palm Sounds would no longer be posting new articles… at least for the time being.

This blog has been around for just over 5 and a half years now and especially in the last 12 months it has required more and more time and effort just to stay on top of everything that’s happening in the mobile music world. It now takes up almost, if not all my spare time, and this isn’t really a sustainable position.

Palm Sounds has been a vocal supporter of Hand Held Hollywood since we came on the scene back in 2009. For that, I want to send out a great big bag of thanks to Ashley, and wish him luck on his future endeavors.

Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!
