App Giveaway: MadPad by Smule

Smule has released a new music app for iOS, MadPad. It's a video soundboard - of your life. After using the camera on your iPhone or iPad 2, you record 12 tiny clips of video and sound to create your soundboard, you're ready to start remixing.

I cannot justly describe the awesomeness of this app, so please watch the video below. And because we know that our readers are much more creative than us, TiPb is gifting 5 copies of MadPad for iPhone and 5 copies MadPad HD for iPad!

Remix your life with MadPad, Apple's official iPhone and iPad App of the Week. Turn everyday sights and sounds like your car, an empty soda can, or your friends into the ultimate percussive instrument. Who would have thought everyday life could be so musical?
