Want to be a social-media singing sensation akin to American Idol winner Lee DeWyze? Or maybe you just want to be a pompous judge like Mr. Cowell? Look no further than the Music Idol app. American Idol is continuing. Simon Cowell has moved on. But the crooning and judging continues with the "Music Idol" app for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
The Music Idol app reinvents the American Idol experience, but for social media. It transforms the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch into an instant recording studio — with an endless number of judges at an idol's fingertips.
With a press of a button -- you as the idol -- have just recorded a "tune" that instantly reverberates across social media platforms. A community of idols and judges rate and comment on uploaded tunes. The Music Idol community has access to your Music Idol profile, which includes links to your personal websites and your profiles on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.
Music Idol allows you to record 20-second tunes. Upload them to the app's ever-growing and searchable database. What's more, instantly upload your recorded tunes -- scratchy voices and all -- to your Facebook account or fan page. That should give your Facebook friends something worthy or unworthy of judging.
The app even has a Top 25 idol chart. Follow Music Idol on Twitter or head to our Facebook fan page.
