It’s a hipster double play: turn your iPhone or iPad into a ukulele
Brace yourself, Brooklyn. Get ready, Silver Lake. Hold on to your hats, all of Portland. There’s a new app and doohickey for turning your iPhone or iPad into a ukulele. Our nation’s hipster, already possessed of Apple gadgets and twee tendencies can hit the coffee shop or YouTube scene.
The Futulele can work solely as an iPad app, but it can also come with a guitar-shaped case that holds both an iPad and an iPhone. The two devices are connected via Bluetooth; the iPhone is used for holding the chords and the iPad for strumming the virtual strings.
App creator Amidio claims you can use up to 12 chords for each song, and change chord sets on the fly. You can also record and share music through the company’s other app, OMGuitar.
