One of the big hits on the iPhone are the “Talking Blank” apps. There’s Talking Carl (it’s a monster), Talking Tom (he’s a cat) and the latest one for the Christmas season, Talking Santa. You can feed Santa cookies and milk, have him take a present out of his bag or bowl him over with a giant snowball. But, the best part of the talking lines of apps is that the repeat what you say. In the case of Talking Santa, his voice is very low, so whatever you say it gets transformed into Santa’s voice, more or less. I was wrong, THE best part is you can record a video with the above mentioned actions and share it with your friends on Facebook or on YouTube.
I hadn’t heard of Atomic Tom before, but just based on this video I will be hearing more of them. The premise behind the video is that their instruments were stolen and so they busted out iPhones and started playing virtual instruments on a Subway in NYC. Whether that story is BS or not (sounds like it), the video is worth watching.
