Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this recording app uses auto-tuning, first widely heard in Cher's 1998 hit, Believe. Auto-tuning corrects pitch and adds a distinctive warble to the voice. That's cool. What's not so great is the trashy rap music of 35-year-old Faheem Najm, aka T-Pain. The lyrics are smutty and demeaning to women. The app features profanity, sex, and drug references.
Is it any good?
What a great concept: an app that lets you record and auto-tune your voice just like the pros. I Am T-Pain is sleek and easy to use. You can sing along with any song or a capella, and the effect is quite good. But most of the bundled songs have tasteless titles and raunchy lyrics. A lesser beef: You can't save your recording, only a link to where it resides on the Smule site.
