Awesome. I added it to my “Watch Later” list, and I’ll check it out on my Apple TV on the weekend.

I’m definitely “expert” enough to remember the tracks. I got married in 1985!

Wow abstract-labs, I got tricked when you mentioned Phenomena. I was thinking of Phenomenon with John Travolta. I haven’t seen Phenomena, but enjoyed that track. The movie sounds a bit corny – a girl with a telepathic link to insects that help her solve crimes. But it might be worth watching to see if Jennifer Connelly could act when she was 14.

Motionvids, I love that Psycho track too – it reminds me of intense screaming. I had it on my original list, but cut it down to just five tracks.

Wow. I was listening to that long Eraserhead soundtrack while I worked (your last link). That’s a new way of adding atmosphere to the workplace!

With Halloween just around the corner, I find myself thinking of my favourite horror movies. The movies that are genuinely scary—even after the movie has finished.

A lot of that tension and atmosphere comes from the soundtrack, and here are some of my favourites:

- The Exorcist (soundtrack by Mike Oldfield) - Halloween (soundtrack by John Carpenter) - The Shining (Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta by Béla Bartók) - The Twilight Zone (theme by Marius Constant) - The Walking Dead (theme by Bear McCreary)

What’s yours? Add a YouTube link if possible.

How do good horror movies affect you? The hair on the back of your neck? Scared to walk down the hallway? Hiding under the blankets? Nightmares? I have to admit to all of them, though mainly when I was younger. These days I mainly just jump. Goodness, we’re big kids!

@jioaco I’m glad you like the idea. Creating a category is beyond my superpowers, but we definitely plan to do more with user collection on Notes.

@tuguirazvan Those are collections created by the Notes/Marketing team.

I love gadgets. I’ve been using them and collecting them since the 80s. See my photo below – a small collection from my gadget graveyard. By the way, the smashed screens happen when I pass them on to my kids – I look after my toys. ;)

But whichever platform I use and prefer, developing for a platform is a whole different issue. Which platform is better for the developer? Android or iOS or something else?

We’re planning a “Trend Spotting” post for Notes on the topic, and I’d love to have your opinions. After all, you’re betting your livelihoods on that decision!

A lively debate is welcome! And to add fuel to the (friendly) fire, here are a few quick stats from the Marketplaces:

There are 214 iOS items vs 95 Android items. And they generate $16k vs $6k p/month. So it’s a dead heat. But Android has tripled in volume since last August, and iOS has only doubled.

(That was a few weeks ago. Now we have 235 iOS items, and 115 Android.)

So what’s more popular? What’s the trend here? Which platform are you betting on?

PS. How many of my devices do you recognise?
