Smule’s fans have created more than 1 billion of their own songs in apps like Sing! Karaoke. Let’s hope they’re not all bad.
Now you can see what your voice sounds like in the shower or the Sidney opera hall.
It’s not surprising that Smule, the startup behind cool musical iPhone applications like Ocarina and I Am T-Pain, has an app for Apple’s soon-to-debut iPad device, too — Magic Piano (iTunes link), which co-founder and chief technology officer Ge Wang describes as an “anti-piano.” Of course, I haven’t been able to play with the app yet, given that the iPad doesn’t go on sale till tomorrow, but I interviewed Wang about it, and about his perspective on the device’s potential.
