MadPad Is One Of The Sickest, Baddest, Phattest iPhone Apps We’ve Seen. And It’s Free Today [Daily Freebie]

Smule’s been racking up the hits with apps like Ocarina and I Am T-Pain. Their latest is called MadPad, and like the others, it’s well-polished, cooler than an arctic popsicle and impossible to put down. And today, it’s free.

The app lets you sample sounds from your environment and save twelve of them — along with a little video clip for each — as a set to play with later as a kind of drum kit. Which is pretty cool.

But the real hook is browsing all the sets users have uploaded online, or sharing sets through Twitter, Facebook or email. I can’t get over how slick the app is, too — well put together, and just super-fun to play with.

It’s only free ’till the end of the day today though, so jump on it. Also, I Am T-Pain 2.0 is on sale for a buck, in case you’re interested.

Edit: As rockarollr’s mad detective skills have sussed out, there’s also an HD iPad version — which he apparently couldn’t get to work. Seems to be doing ok on my iPad 2, though. Is the app quarreling with older iDevices, perhaps?

    Please, thas was just total utter crap.

  • rockarollr

    This app crashed on my freshly booted iPad within minutes of launching it. Are Smule actually looking for beta testers with this “free” offering?

    Works perfectly on my iPhone 4. Actually had no idea there was also an iPad version —  rockarollr, you’re a swell (if accidental) tip tosser.

    … It says 99 cents to me. guess the day ended early

  • doro86

    i think it is a useful and entertaining app…..

  • Jfountai

    not free anymore

  • elimilchman

    No, it’s back up to $1 — ‘fraid you were a wee bit late, sale ended yesterday.
