This week we sell our skills in videos, slow down any song in Apple Music, make wild music with Factory, and more.
Perfect Tempo slows down and loops songs to help your learn to play them. The twist is that it can load any of the millions of songs in Apple’s Music streaming service, instead of being limited to songs you have purchased, or added yourself. It’s not as full-featured as some alternatives, but it’s beautifully-designed, and easier to use than other apps that do similar tricks. Recommended.

Sponsored post — Skills Co is a way to help people make money from their how-to videos. You make the videos, and Skills Co lists them in its app.
Videos are hosted on YouTube, and sold through the app. You can sell a course for prices running from $10 to $100, and Skills Co takes a 10% cut.

Factory modular synthesizer
Factory is the iOS version of SugarBytes’ desktop synth app, and it’s every bit as good. You can start banging keys out of the box, and get some unique sounds. But dig in, and the sound-sculpting possibilities are almost endless.
Price: Free with in-app purchases

Stop the News
Stop the News is another app from Stop the Madness creator Jeff Johnson. It’s a Safari plugin that does one thing: stops Apple News links from opening in the Apple News app. Instead, those links open up in Safari, just like you wanted them to all along.
