Ranked in order of potential usefulness:

1. Processing

2. Isadora

3. Max/MSP/Jitter

  • Abstractions, useful widgets to use in your Max patches.
  • Classic Max/MSP/Jitter tutorials: a great introduction to the program; not all of these are still included with the current version.
  • BEA-5 OSC Control v6: (Also a standalone OS X app.) PPC only. Based on a patch by Lex van den Broek; controls the BEA-5 synth racks at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. (And for everybody else, it’s still a good demonstration of how OSC works.)
  • Displacer v10: (Also a standalone OS X app.) Uses one source clip to apply a displacement effect to another, and records the result to disk.
  • Slit-Scanner v8: Copies columns of pixels from a source clip or live image, records the result to disk.
  • Perl Script for Max Colls: Crude, but useful. Can format an Excel spreadsheet or a plain text file for use in Max.
  • Max Cue-er Patch: A Max patch for running theatrical video cues. It works even with the demo version–just put your clips’ filenames in the text file.
  • iSight Control Patch: This lets you control focus, exposure, white balance, and shutter speed on an Apple iSight camera–and lock the settings, too. Ideal for use in motion tracking, installations, and the like.
  • Fake Keys Patch: This lets you play an octave’s worth of MIDI notes on the middle row of your keyboard, like you would in Live or a similar program. It also changes velocity and duration based on how fast you play. There are a lot of similar tools like this out there, but as a Max patch this can be directly integrated into your application.
4. ActionScript

5. OpenFrameworks

6. JavaScript

The photo app, with barebones functionality, does offer a few standout features. Users can choose up to two photo galleries to store photos, protected by two different (or the same) four-digit passcodes.
