The T-Pain Auto-Tune app has been a very popular app for iPhone users. The app is very useful for creating prank calls, singing silly songs or just plain wanting to sound like a robot. So naturally, Android owners have been asking “Where is an Auto-Tune app for Android?”
Chances are though, you won’t see one anytime soon. The reason? Unfortunately the existing Android developer libraries for sound aren’t very deep. A developer would have to write a ton of code to modify sound in the fashion the T-Pain Auto-Tune app does. The Dialpad app is a start, but a either Google will need to release better sound libraries or a developer with a lot of free time will need to make a project out of it.
The iPhone developer tools on the other hand offer developers easy ways to modify sound with extensive, pre-existing libraries. Sometimes all it takes is a couple of lines of code and you can change the pitch, tone, bass, etc of a sound.
I hate to admit it, but this is one area where the iOS has Android beat. It’s too bad, because I would really like to get my own version of “Pants on the Ground” released.
