Ezaske says:

Now only if the iPad had a forward facing camera. Can you imagin "I am T-Pain" with a video option to make you not only sound like the rapper, but look like him too - imagine being able to map hats, gold chains, etc. onto your video image ;)

Victimsofgravity says:

That's what I'm talking about Ezaske!!!
I want 2 cameras on my ipad!! 1 facing both sides!!!!!

lagmefragme says:

The camera would have to add fake bling to you if it you implemented it in "I am T-Pain".

etc says:

Smule is one of the most innovative iPhone developer's around.

Jin Lim says:

I have the "I am T-Pain" app for the iphone and love it. Super excited for their ipad plans!

Freiteez says:

Jason Tsai says:

this guy was on one of the keynotes.....

Michael says:

Great company that always seems to come up with apps that grab your attention and make you want to purchase their apps. HOW DO YOU DO IT!!!!

scientist88 says:

ken says:

RRobinson4633 says:

I love music a great deal! I love what these guys are going. Innovative music making on revolutionary technology.

jhoffmeyer says:

Smule is a great company that's perfect at creating apps I didn't know I needed but end up having to get.

Orangensaft says:

Leaf Trombone World Stage. It's nice how this app continues to be talked about as it was one of the originals introduced at the iPhone 2.0 intro event.

tyrran says:

I have no idea how Ocarina will even function on the iPad but I love the idea of a ridiculously oversized instrument that you play with a mic adapter or something. Seriously, I love smule and hope that they devise a wonderous product that makes me desire an iPad more than my left kidney.

Dyvim says:

I've loved their stuff ever since Ocarina. That's when I knew that the whole iPhone app phenomenon was going to be different from application development for all other mobile platforms to date. Can't wait to see what they do for iPad. I hope iPad has the same kind of genre-defying apps that change how we use these devices.

ninjamattic says:

I have several friends who tell me that I Am TPain is the greatest app ever and I need to get it post-haste. I haven't really taken the plunge though. Is it really that good?

Triangle says:

I didn't know who TPain was before Smule, but the demo I saw was pretty cool. With so many songs that have synthesized vocals these days, there are probably a lot of songs that they can use the platform for.

zeagus says:

Love Smule and everyone else making inventive apps for the platform that make my iDevice 10x as awesome.
