karl_photoNow that you’ve updated your iPhone to the latest version of iOS that Cupertino has spawned, you’ll be looking for apps that have been built to take full advantage of all the new shiny features.

So here’s a couple of Irish built apps to start you off filling all those empty screens.

Event Post

Event Post by Keven McCafferty is an app to help you remember when you last did all those dull things you just don’t want to be bothered remembering.

A small form lets you set up an irregular but reoccurring event (like buying heating oil) and simply record when it happens so you can remember far more important things like who’s round it is next time you’re in the pub with your mates.

Available on iTunes for 89c

Goal Streaks


It takes about 66 days to form a new habit and Goal Streaks by Peer Assembly aims to help you along the way by gently reminding you how you’re doing.

It’s quick and flexible to add in new targets. There’s a lot of joy to be had from ticking things off and seeing a streak build up (or is that just me?).

Available on iTunes for €3.59

We’ve talked about the guys from Soundwave a few times before. They are, as far as we can tell, the only Irish app to have been featured by Apple in their “Designed for iOS 7” section. This is on top of getting selected as an Editor’s Choice on the App Store. They’re great ambassadors for the capability of the IRish tech scene.

They’ve rebuilt the interface from scratch to take full advantage of the new look and feel of iOS and it’s already getting plaudits from the tech press.

Available on iTunes for free (there’s also the an Android version)

Soundwave, whose videos we’ve featured before (a dance off and sledding in Dublin) have finally launched their music discovery app on both iOS and Android today for the princely sum of free.

Predicted by everyone’s favourite tax compliant musician, loved by overweight tech-giant founders and championed by government secret exposing newspapers.

The feature that really hooks me is the music map which allows you to draw a shape on the map and see what music people are listening to in that area.


Why don’t you reward these hardworking lads and give their app a go on your preferred device?

Maybe even BUY a song?

A few months ago we featured a sledding video from the guys at Soundwave, one of the current crop of Irish start ups that’s driving the real Smart Economy and not the one our Government bangs on about (and doesn’t understand).

They’re at South By Southwest in Austin pitching to everyone that’ll listen to them about their music discovery app.

To get a bit of notice, they hired some dancers to dance with headphones in and wearing t-shirts with #SXDancingGuy on them.

All standard market guff until a local street cleaner decided to instigate a dance-off.  Now you’ve got marketing gold.
