Fun Sounds: iPhone App Written and Video Review
Are you a soundboard fan? If not, consider the crazy amounts of fun you can have with a quality soundboard-basically, an organized collection of audio files. While traditionally soundboards have been found on computers, they are also available on mobile devices like the iPhone. One popular soundboard app, with reportedly over 1 million users, is the aptly-named Fun Sounds, from developer Ozan. It’s been recently updated with an exciting new feature for Facebook users as well!
Fun Sounds offers an astounding 180 sounds with 12 different categories. These include everything from Animals to Fun to Horror to People and much much more. You’ll find high-quality audio files for each sound bite, including quotes from celebrities and crazy explosions. I was really impressed wit the huge selection of soundboard files in Fun Sounds, it definitely stands out as one of the largest app soundboard offerings on iTunes! Simply browse through the different categories, select the sound you would like to hear and tap it for it to play. Not enough sounds for you? Record your own, if your device has a mic setting, and save them and categorize them through Fun Sounds to listen to again!
Of special note is the newest update released for Fun Sounds. In this update, users can send the sounds directly to their Facebook friends. Obviously, you’ll need to login to Facebook to do so, through the app itself. There’s definitely more than enough hilarious sounds to keep your friends entertained, even the ones you only stay in touch with through Facebook!
Appearance and Layout:
Fun Sounds has a very professional and easily navigatable layout. It’s fairly easy to figure out from the get go, however, it is important to note that you need an active internet connection the first time you use Fun Sounds. After that, I found that it had loaded all the needed files and worked fine without such a connection. Of course, if you plan on sending sounds to your friends through Facebook, you’ll still need an internet connection. The graphics and menu pages look very professional and the overall feel is of a very polished, well-designed app!
At $1.99, Fun Sounds needs to offer a lot to justify it’s cost-and it does! The sheer number and variety of sounds files in Fun Sounds really makes up for the higher price. It’s awesome whipping out this soundboard when hanging out with friends as it can really add to the party! Fun Sounds sports a great layout, loads of sounds and is compatible with most iOS devices. Check it out today though iTunes!
