Futulele is "The Ukulele of the Future"

Posted by Jordan Minor on May 29th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

At this point it seems that developers are willing to turn the iPad into literally anything and it is getting a little ridiculous. Forget virtual guitars and turntables, Futulele is here to turn iPads into virtual ukuleles. It is almost as crazy as it is just plain awesome. Is there really anyone out there who wouldn’t want a ukulele?

The set-up should feel familiar to anyone who has dabbled with Apple’s own GarageBand app. Users pick some chords and start strumming away. Users can also record themselves and adjust various chorus and effect settings. According to the developers though, what sets Futulele apart from competing synthesizers is its physics-based, CrystalClear 4.0 sound engine. Apparently it makes Futulele “the first app which sounds absolutely like the real thing.”

Additionally, those with both an iPad and iPhone can join the two into one instrument using the app. A special guitar case and Futulele Remote App allow musicians to pick chords on the iPhone while simultaneously strumming on the iPad.

Play the perfect summer soundtrack. Futulele is available now on the App Store for $4.99.

Rock Band on the iPhone is exactly what you'd expect it to be... pretty and polished but somewhat lacking in fun. There's only so much delight you can get out of a rhythm game on the iPhone.

Muses don't schedule appointments. They aren't fine with being told to "please hold." If you don't have time for her at the moment, there are plenty of buskers down the street who will. Left your guitar at home? Not her problem. Of course, she might think

Our rating: starstarstarstarstar :: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
This application is a singing book designed to entertain a young child. However, it is much more than that. It has multiple languages, instruments and recording support, turning it into a great educational tool.
