Whether it is school or work many of us are on the internet waaay too much during a 24 hour period. So if you HAVE to be online why not make the most of it an take a break from work to play. Here are some cool apps that can give you the quick recharge you need via you phone or the web:
What it is…. HipHop Producer makes it easy for anyone to create beats from your iPhone or IPod Touch. Choose from over 120 exclusive beat samples and assign them to each of the 16 beat pads. Specify what you want each beat pad to do: loop, play once, or play while you hold it. From there tap away to create your beat.
What it is…
It uses Facebook Connect to allow users to not only login to the site but to also interact with the commissioned song on Facebook and with your friends.

Tap Tap Revenge
What it is…
Tap Tap Revenge is a music game in the tradition of Guitar Hero or Dance Dance Revolution that puts your rhythmic skills to the test in all-new ways. It comes with about 40 free songs most of whom I can’t stay on beat with. The exception is QTip’s Gettin’ Up, though it is easy to stay on beat beware because it is considered a Hard Track.
What it is… Pandora allows you to create any music station based of an artist or song you choose. It then uses information from the Music Genome Project to play similar music. Pandora stations also get “smarter” as you use it playing more of the music that you specify that you like. What is even better than listening to Pandora for inspiration music while you are working is listening to Pandora using your iPhone and an auxiliary cord while on a road trip.
