100Sounds - What would you do with a soundboard in your pocket? Wake up your sleeping roommate? Confuse your dog? Shake up a meeting at the office? There really is an endless list of obnoxious, pointlessly fun possibilities. Of course if you’re a creative sound guru, you could probably even make music. The 100Sounds iPhone/iPod Touch app from No Tie Software is a compilation of over 100 random sounds, neatly organized into an alphabetical list that users can scroll through and tap to hear.
For just a buck, 100Sounds goes beyond the typical tap-generated fart, burp, or ringing phone and puts a wide array of sound effects from a barking dog to a whistling tea pot at your fingertips. It’s hard to say when and where you would want to employ tactical sound maneuvers like any of the ones included, but really, who cares? That’s the point to having such an app stored in your menu — you just never know.
100Sounds lets you be a little creative by allowing you to overlap longer and shorter sounds or set the sound to loop or delay up to 60 seconds. You can even customize the list of sounds that appear by utilizing the edit menu and hiding ones you don’t like. Tapping the info icon will also allow you to choose a setting for the “shake to play” feature. You can designate no sound, last sound or random sound.
Without the built-in speaker, 1st generation iPod Touch users can’t get the full impact of 100Sounds because headphones or speakers are required to hear, so iPhone and 2nd generation iPod Touch users are at an advantage with 100Sounds. It's also not designed to set the sounds as a ring tone for your phone.
What uses will you find for 100Sounds? It’s hard telling, but No Tie Software wants to know. Through March 12th the first 100 videos uploaded through their YouTube link will win a $10.00 iTunes gift card. Visit www.100sounds.com for details.
