iPhone App Review: I Am T-Pain

I’m a big fan when it comes to music apps, especially ones that let you be creative. “I am T-Pain” has two modes – one lets you sing like T-Pain on his songs and a freestyle mode that is worth the $2.99 alone. When connected to a speaker, the freestyle mode lets you use the app like an auto-tune machine. You have the option to have the auto-tune setting set to T-Pain or you can customize the tuning to major, minor, and even chromatic scales. This app works great for non-singers and singers alike as it automatically adjusts your voice to the nearest note in real-time.

The “I am T-Pain” app includes 14 songs to sing along with. Five of them are instrumental versions of T-Pain songs including the hits “Bartender” and “Dreamgirl.” Three are Christmas karaoke songs, and the other six are T-Pain beats you can freestyle with. You can also purchase additional T-Pain songs in the app for $0.99 – $1.99. None of the songs are installed by default, so you might spend some time downloading the songs if you have a slow connection. I found the karaoke interface to be very good with easy-to-read lyrics on the screen. If you mess up, you can easily restart the song. By default, all your songs are recorded onto your device so you can listen to them later. You can also upload your audio track to the Smule server and also add an audio player with your songs to MySpace and Facebook. They also updated the app so you can sing along to any song in your iTunes library, which is a cool feature. The only limitation in this mode is that you can’t upload it to the server.

This app has many hours worth of entertainment with the auto-tune feature and a good list of songs to sing along with. I applaud Smule for updating the app with new features and songs. They made an excellent product even better. The possibilities are endless, who knows – you might see someone using the “I am T-Pain” app at your next karaoke party. I know I will.

Pros:

  • Excellent auto-tune feature in real-time
  • Good selection of songs with app
  • Share your songs via the upload feature
  • Ability to sing to any song in your iTunes library
  • Solid karaoke mode
  • Good recording quality

Cons:

  • Needs vocal recording level option

La Crosse Technology Power Battery Charger on Sale!

Amazon has the La Crosse Technology BC-700 Alpha Power Battery Charger on sale for $24.99 today only. Its usually around $33-$35. We use it for charging the AAs on our Canon SLR and Nintendo Wii remotes. The nice feature with this charger is that it has a display on how much of the battery is actually getting charged. For instance, we had a batch of batteries that are rated at “2600 mAh” but only charge up to 1500 mAh. This information is useful since it would have led to a much shorter life on our camera flash. The charger also features a refresh feature to help extend the battery life.
