Smule releases Sing! karaoke app for iPhone
Several weeks after the release of AutoRap on the App Store, Smule is now calling out to all the karaoke fans out there with their latest app Sing!. Much like other Smule apps that heavily rely on social networking, Sing! lets you choose from over 130 musical hits from various genres (Rolling in the Deep, Boyfriend, Call Me Maybe etc) for you to sing along. Your performance can then be shared with a friend (if so desired), at which point he/she can add their voice to the track and create some sweet sounding harmonies. Don’t exactly fancy yourself a crooner? Not to worry. Thanks to the “voice enhancement technology” and special voice filters, you may not sound half bad after belting out your favorite tunes. The app is free to download, though most of the songs in-app will cost you $0.99. See how Sing! works in a video trailer after the break.
Smule, Sing! Join the global karaoke party! – Free
Similar to the premise behind Sing!, here’s a video of singers paying tribute to victims of the Japan earthquake and tsunami using Smule’s Glee Karaoke app. A year after the song was first shared and others invited to join in, nearly 4,000 singers have added their voices to the song (Lean on Me).
