Seldon Wants to Make Life Easier for Data Scientists — It feels that these days we live our whole digital lives according mysterious algorithms that predict what we'll want from apps and websites. A new open-source product could help those building the products we use worry less about writing those algorithms in the first place.

Korg Gadget Music Production — Music production and performance is an area in which the iPad has found a real home. The quality of synthesizers and samplers available for Apple's tablet these days is truly stunning, although apps that allow you to compose whole songs have lagged behind until this year, when Korg released Gadget.

Deezer Shows you the Lyrics as you Listen to Music — Streaming music service Deezer has added a new feature today that lets you read the lyrics along with songs as you listen to them. While this feature has been available in the past as an add-on to Spotify via the likes of TuneWiki (which shut down last year) and MusiXmatch, this is the first time we're aware of a service building it in natively.

Secret Reboots for Friction-Free Anonymous Chat — Secret was one of the hottest apps of the first half of the year.

Pause Hits Android, Plans Expansion Beyond Music — Less than a year after launching its curated music magazine app Pause for iPad and iPhone, is expanding the app's scope as it aims to move beyond just music. The app has arrived on Android for the first time, along with an update on iOS.

Content Curation that Looks Great — From Wikipedia to Delicious, Pinterest to Flipboard, people have collaborated to share links and ideas for as long as the Web has been 'a thing.' With this in mind, a startup called Wakelet hopes that people take to its new, attractive, multimedia approach to online knowledge-sharing.

@shonaghosh @kevglobal it can track your steps from the iPhone's motion coprocessor. I only use it for that and weight from Withings.
