Want to be the next Eminem? Smule’s new AutoRap app will improve your flow

If you’re not reaching, engaging, and monetizing customers on mobile, you’re likely losing them to someone else. Register now for the 8th annual MobileBeat, July 13-14, where the best and brightest will be exploring the latest strategies and tactics in the mobile space.

Not content with making smarpthone users better singers, Smule is determined to make them better rappers as well.

That’s the goal of AutoRap, Smule’s latest app for iOS and Android. Similar to its previous popular offerings like Songify and I Am T-Pain, AutoRap uses the magic of software algorithms to improve users’ musical abilities.

With the app, users only have to speak into their phones and the software will automatically snap their words to the meter of the song they are rapping to, instantly making them better emcees.

Smule is also channeling the success of its previous apps by offering AutoRap tracks from a variety of well-known artists, including Nicki Minaj and Snoop Dogg. Lesser-know, up-and-coming artists will also be represented in the track selection.

What’s notable about AutoRap is that it’s the first app from Smule that’s been released for Android and iOS at the same time. 60 million people have downloaded Smule’s apps so far, so it’s clear the company has found a formula that works.

Below is a video of the app in action. Smiles all around.
