Dog gets help singing with LaDiDa mobile app, nominated for Billboard’s Best Music Creation app. Winners posted below video.
In a recent Get App-y column (posted below on this blog), I talked about Billboard’s first-ever mobile app awards. Here are the winners, along with the nominees. Whether they won or not, if you’re into music, check them out, and let me know which ones you like. Winners are in red.
Best Music Engagement App:
Tap Tap Revenge 3
SoundHound Infinity √
Mix Me In2 Taylor Swift
(From Lillie-Beth: All three of these are worth playing around with. SoundHound might be less well known than Shazam, but it does the same thing very well. It’s the one I use. My daughter has also had fun with the Taylor Swift app, too, while my son likes the Tap Tap series, which is like Guitar Hero for the mobile device.)
Best Music Creation App:
(I’m not familiar with the winner MorphWiz or AmpliTude iRig, but LaDiDa comes from a former Oklahoman, who, with her husband, designed an app to make singers of all types sound better.
As for the rest of these apps, I haven’t done much with them — R5 and Bonnaroo are for specific events and/or the music scene in specific cities, and the music streaming apps often require subscription. I have a subscription to Pandora and iTunes and that’s it for now.)
Best Music Streaming App:
Best Touring App:
Live Phish √
Best Artist-based App:
Linkin Park 8-Bit Revolution
I Am T-Pain √
TouchChords: Jimmy Vaughan
Best Branded App:
50s Sound Lab
Let me know if you have any more music apps that you like.
