How great it is to create your own music, jingle or tune on-the-fly without the need of a power-hungry PC or any software that will burn a hole in the pocket. Yes, SoundCloud is exactly the solution being spoken about here; the perfect solution for the creative artist on the go.
Developed by the SoundCloud team, this app is quality assured and integrates well with social-networking sites – making sharing, commenting and liking soundbites a breeze.
SouncCloud for iOS allows users to record, capture or share a soundtrack on the go. Yes, the app acts as a publishing tool, allowing you to distribute your music creations for free.
Like the website version itself, even the iOS app supports Waveform, allowing users to check and see the shape of their music sound. SoundCloud is also a gem as far as social-networking is concerned – so it just takes one tap and Voila! your creation is shared with millions via Facebook and Twitter. Moreover, users can like and comment on their own tracks, as well as on tracks complied by their Facebook friends on the network.
The SoundCloud for iOS has been updated to version 2.0.1 turning this app into a universal one. Alsongside this, there is additional functionality to post comments, record sounds and send it as a private message. The app also sports a more fluid streamlined tab feature, push notification support to notify about new followers and activities surrounding the tracks. The User-interface is a big plus point with a black and orange theme looking very appealing.
SoundCloud was established in Berlin, Germany in August, 2007 by Alex Ljung and artist Eric Wahlforss, with the main purpose to allow musicians to freely distribute their work on the Web, and while doing so, also be able to market themselves successfully. The biggest boon to musicians uploading work on SoundCloud, instead of MySpace is the availability of a special URL, that can be shared on any website for a more powerful reach, while MySpace allows for music hosting only on their site.
Overall, SoundCloud is great for independent musicians looking for a platform without much fuss and this app just takes things to an all new level with the mobility approach adopted. The SoundCloud app for iOS works on devices running iOS 4 and above only.
