If you’re a fan of classic synth music (and, let’s be honest, who isn’t?), you may want to check out Moog’s latest iOS release, which astonishingly recreates the company’s iconic 1973 Model 15 modular synth inside an iPad app.

Developer David Repas just wants to give you some free stuff with no obligation on your part.
“I’m just one guy trying to create a company around giving stuff away,” he tells Cult of Android. “I’m not into people tracking, annoying users or any of that funny business.”

It’s about time, really. We already can order pizzas, send images of our rashes to medical doctors, and get groceries delivered via the magic of our iPhones. Now, with a new app called EazeMD, you can get your legal medical marijuana this way, too.
Eaze MD promises California smartphone users the ability to connect with a doctor for a prescription for medical marijuana, and then follow that up with a delivery within 20 minutes or less.
The maker of Telegram, a popular messaging app, has had his creation blocked in Iran on the grounds that he refused to help authorities to spy on their own citizens.
Creator Pavel Durov said that Iran’s Ministry of Information and Communications Technology asked him to provide them with “spying and censorship tools” for the service. When he refused, Telegram was quickly given the boot.
