I Am T-Pain, no really. I am. I sound just like him thanks to his brand new iPhone app (download here). I Am T-Pain is by far the coolest app in the App Store to date. At least, I think so anyway. The application gives you Auto-Tune in the palm of your hand. Auto-Tune by the way is the same technology T-Pain himself uses in the studio to record his music. That software can cost you $500 or more, but, in the App Store I Am T-Pain is a measly $2.99.
Before I go on, I don’t want you to expect to sound like you are in a recording studio – because it doesn’t. It uses the very crappy iPhone microphone to record you. Nonetheless, it works and it works well enough for it to be extremely fun. I spent hours on end singing into my iPhone (no joke, I drained my battery). All you have to do is plug in your headphones and get to work. You can even plug your iPhone into a speaker system via an auxiliary cable and amplify your new Auto-Tune voice for everyone to hear (great for a party).
The application allows you to record, save, and share (via email, Facebook or Myspace) your newly found talent as well. You can even sing along with tracks that can be downloaded for free or purchase. Those tracks even come with the lyrics attached to them.
This application may not improve your productivity or help you remember things but it is definitely the most fun app I have ever used. Beyond the application itself, it is a genius move on T-Pain’s part to see the market for an application like I Am T-Pain. If you don’t believe me look at the numbers – it sold 30,000 copies on the first day.
I also recommend you check out the video above to see it in action.
