The iPhone-created New Yorker cover

Spinning vinyl ipod app from Theodore Watson on Vimeo.

Last night my fiance was explaining the late night thinking he's been giving to the development of an iPhone app. Every time he has an idea, he finds that it's already been done. It's true; there are so many damn apps but these two, in particular, caught my eye.

The first one is the most recent cover of The New Yorker created by just an artists's finger and his iPhone. Using an iPhone app called Brushes, the artist was able to draw and paint as if his phone was a canvas. Isn't that unbelieveable? Who is an 'artist' anymore these days? I mean, look at the cover! It looks like he actually used a brush! Are we going to see the demise of painting now?? Maybe that's a bit rash.

The other cool app I stumbled upon mimics a record player. Check out the video to see how.
