Smule announces Magic Fiddle for iPad - Want to win a copy?


i have been playing violin for 13 years now and it would be so amazing to have this app and see what it can do. Have my "fiddle" everywhere i go with me!

Smule is a great company with some awesome sound-related apps and this looks rightup my alley. I'd love to fiddle up a storm on this. I hope to win! Thanks guys!

i would love to have this app! i could be like Laura Ingall's Wilder's father. that would be so cool. i have only played the clarinet, so it would be good experience to play a different instrument this time, on my new iPad! thanks!

Looks good I have Ocarina and Leaf Trombone. They both work great and are very well put together. Would like to check it out.

This is so cool! I am already a violinist by profession and this would be such a big hit at rehearsal breaks! Love it!

I've played violin since third grade, cello since sixth, string bass since seventh. My friends and I are avid Apple fans, and I, myself, am obsessed with Apple. Currently, my friends and I are trying to create an iOS orchestra that we would be able to perform in front of people. However, as a freshman in college, budgets are tight. I would really appreciate this app.

Boy would this app be useful for me. I could lull that Dragon that's been living in my garage for the past 3 months to get out! The dragon will be going into hibernation soon so... I'd like to get it out as soon as possible and this app should be the easiest way. I'm not begging, but it would be very helpful to get it soon! Thanks for the opportunity, I HOPE I GET IT.

I would love to win a copy so I can learn to play Devil Went Down to Georgia and see if the iPad can handle it!

Awesome app...! would love to demo it and let students play with it in the weekend classes i volunteer..!

This looks cool. Just what you would expect from a Smule app! I own almost all their apps so needless to say this would be a GREAT gift!

Love what smule's been able to come out with so far. This looks so great I'd be willing to buy it...but the only thing better than getting this app in general would be to get it free! hint hint
