Ge Wang, founder of social music app maker Smule, says that the new iPad 2 is going to be great for making media-rich app makers.

His company makes a lot of cool music apps from Ocarina to Magic Fiddle. Each of them takes advantage of the unique features of the Apple mobile devices. With Ocarina, you can blow into the microphone of the device to make sound and tap on its touchscreen to add various effects. The better graphics and dual-core processor will also be very useful as Smule designs its next big apps, Wang said.
