We loved the original Pacemaker, and were sad to hear of its eventual discontinuation. News just in this morning, however, is that the DJ tool is back as a PlayBook app thanks to an exclusive collaboration with the tablet’s maker. Details are sparse right now, as the information spilled at RIM’s event this morning atMWC, but we do know that there will be auto beatmatching, vinyl mode with scratching, digital mode, looping, loop travel, pitch control, beat skip and “pro level” effects. All we have in terms of availability is that it will be out this spring, with no word on price. In the meantime we’re going to start prepping up thatmusic collection.

Each zombie has its own special skills, so you’ll need to think fast and plant faster to combat them all.

I woke up this morning to a new notification in App World to update WordPress for PlayBook. There is no word on what the update brings to the Android port of WordPress but using it this morning it seems to be much faster. Either way if you wanted to accessWordPress from your PlayBook check out v2.0.7 in App World. (previous version was v2.0.5) I am hoping Automattic sees the huge demand for the PlayBook app and is working on developing a native PlayBook app!
